Why are all of my numbers in voice mail showing as international numbers?

Please tell me how I can change the format of the telephone numbers on my visual VM.  The numbers are reading like international numbers (with a + at the beginning) rather than the format of the US phone numbers.

Hi AntonionC:

Thanks so much for trying to help me on this problem. I have done what you suggested - don't know why I hadn't seen that before. I had been looking through the settings for every possibility.

I am not yet sure if it did the trick because I haven't had anyone call and leave a message. I tried calling myself from the home land line; but because my home number is in my contacts it just listed "Home" as the caller and didn't write out the number. So I must get some friend to call me and leave a message. But I think it may have worked because now it lists the caller - "Home" - whereas on the 4 other numbers that were transferred from my old phone it only listed the numbers in Int'l format.

I really do appreciate your taking time to respond to my question. As soon as I find out if it's the ultimate cure, I will let you know.
