  3. Within the 'Review Card Information' screen, update all phone numbers to include the international access code format (add '+1' for all North American numbers, Eg, +15551239876).

IMPORTANT:  Handheld Contact uses the international access code format.  This means that the '+' symbol is required when entering phone numbers.  If this '+' is ignored then importing and syncing to/from ACT! may not work successfully.  Also see this link for more '+1' phone number information.
