Prefixer is working fine for outgoing calls on my Samsung S7. Can't get it to work on incoming calls. + precedes each number. Anyone have a fix?
Use \+[0-9]+ instead of the usual \+* or whatever in Prefixer on the incoming calls section.
still not work on the incomming call. please see the pic for setting thanks
anyone know HOW?

I know this thread is more than 2 years old, but I thought I would check to see if you ever found a solution to the Verizon Galaxy S7 adding a + sign to your incoming calls. I just switched from Verizon to AT&T and my 2 Galaxy S7 phones have the exact same problem. I would try Prefixer, but it is no longer available from the Google Play Store. If you recall what solution you found, I would be most grateful! Thanks.

Prefixer is still available, but you need to go through another avenue like Aptoide. Seems to be working well for me on outgoing calls on my Galaxy S7, but the incoming calls are still getting the + sign with both \+ and \+[0-9]+ options. Anyone else have ideas?
I found a copy several months ago and loaded it on the Galaxy S7 phones. I used the rule I found online to strip the "+" from all outgoing calls and it works perfectly. I have not tried to write a rule to strip the "+" sign from incoming calls. I actually LIKE seeing the plus sign and country code on incoming calls..., and those don't seem to create any problem for me. Why are you wanting to remove the plus sign from incoming calls?
One thing I noticed when creating the rule for outgoing calls is that the app (or perhaps my KEYBOARD) seemed to automatically put a space after the "\", so I initially had "\ +" which did not work. It took me a while to recognize that there was a space between the two characters. You might want to make sure that did not happen in your rule.

I did find a solution between many forums. The problems stems from the network, not the phone or ROM. The solution really was the Prefixer app, but you will no longer find it on the play store. I used this link: https://apkpure.com/prefixer/com.tftbelow.prefixer it will prompt you because it is technically an 'untrusted app'. It still works even though it is dated.
I created a rule for incoming calls which searched for .\+ and removed the object \+ and it worked. However, because so many of my contacts were prefixed with 1 or +1, I had to briefly download an app from the Play Store and strip my contacts of the + and the 1.
This resolved the problem.
