:Every time I add a new contact to Outlook, it makes me enter my local area code, but it doesn't save the information from day to day. If I add more contacts today, it's fine. Tomorrow, it will make me fill in our local area code as soon as I type in a contact's phone number. Is there a way to get it to save the My Location area code?

If you don't want it to ask for the area code at all, in the phone and modem section under "What country/region..." set the dropdown to
"International Free phone Service"
