AbstractIn a device for automatically generating an addressee number to which a short message is to be transmitted, the name of the country of the user previously stored in a user country name memory 19 is read out by a country name reader 23, and the telephone number of the addressee previously stored in an addressee telephone number memory 18 is read out by a telephone number reader 24. When the telephone number of the addressee is found to be a telephone number for a domestic call, an addressee number generator 25 adds the country code of the user's country to the telephone number of the addressee and thereby automatically generates the addressee number to which the short message is to be transmitted.
