    Default Bump!!

    Using 0 instead of the +44 means the calls get caller ID but the text popups only show the number. Oddly in the SMS app they show the name.

    I have this exact same problem. but the other way round. when storing contacts in +49 format, incoming calls are displayed correctly. But when an SMS arrives it only shows the number !!! when tapping to view the SMS it goes to the correct conversation and displays the name properly. 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.

    Okay, for some unknown reason it is working properly now . SMS pop up with names and incoming calls display contact names properly.

    Default AppleScript

    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.

    Code:
    --- 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.
    --- by pianojoe
    
    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
    				else
    					set m to find_len + 1
    				end if
    				--- 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
    			end if
    		end repeat
    	end repeat
    	beep
    	display alert (c as string) & " phone numbers fixed."
    end tell

    Anything you did ?


    I am waiting for the iPhone to be released in UK, that will bring new firmware with the number format problem being solved. Of course, let's hope the new firmware is vulnerable to the same Unlock hack as the current one

    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:
    http://iphone.include7.ch/media/ABPhoneFormats.plist
    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

    This is likely to be fixed in the next firmware release, many threads on it, but no solution other than 2 entries in contacts for +... numbers.
