Nope, in that assistant you select your country, and it fills in the
country code. In my case, that was correctly (Germany, +49). It looks
like the assistant needs a little love. It is not possible to change the
country, there is a page for that, but it's a "Hotel California" page
("... you can never leave.").

Yes, indeed. I can set the outgoing phone number in the provider
website, so I don't need to tell the app about it.

So, for now, I'll just ignore the crippled assistant.
