The weird thing is, incoming SMSs display only the number instead of the name even though the exact same number is stored for the contact.
i ahve the same problem as well
Okay, for some unknown reason it is working properly now . SMS pop up with names and incoming calls display contact names properly.
I wrote an AppleScript to change all my domestic phone numbers from, say +49-621-7980414 to 0621-7980414. This fixed the problem for me. I'm on Eplus in Germany.
Here's the script. Paste into ScriptEditor.
--- This Apple Script changes your phone numbers from (e.g.) +49-621-7980414 to 0621-7980414
--- Useful for iPhone users outside the USA
--- Provided without a warranty, as is. Always make a backup before applying.

property phone_find : "+49"
property phone_repl : "0"
tell application "Address Book"
set c to 0
set find_len to the length of phone_find
repeat with p in people
set fon to the phone of p
repeat with f in fon
set n to the value of f
--- Let's look at every phone number n
set l to (text items 1 thru find_len of n) as string
--- If it is a domestic number (Germany in my case)
if l = phone_find then
--- Check wether we need to eliminate a following dash
if text item (find_len + 1) of n = "-" then
set m to find_len + 2
set m to find_len + 1
--- and replace the international prefix with a zero
set value of f to phone_repl & (text items m thru -1 of n) as string
set c to c + 1
display alert (c as string) & " phone numbers fixed."
I'm in Denmark.
When I receive calls it shows the names correctly.
When I receive SMS' it show the number instead.
Anyone got any further with this?
It's one of the last major things I need to fix.
somebody in switzerland modded this file:
maby it helps you.
somebody else mentioned, that choosing the country in the contact might help.
There is no solution for this yet...
But since I work for the Mobile Operator I'm using and everybody seems to be buying iPhones here we will mode the number we send to mobiles to Intl Format.
That should fix it
Well, when the UK phone firmware is available, these problems can be addressed. After all, the new phones will be working in UK and Germany
