    Smile Number Formatting for the UK Solution!!

    I seem to have come across a solution for the UK number formatting problem.

    Using the information from Wikipedia on the following page:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telepho...General_format

    I have altered the US section of the ABPhoneformats.plist to look like the following:

    <key>us</key>
    <array>
    <string>0## ### ####</string>
    <string>00 $</string>
    <string>01### ######</string>
    <string>01709 ######</string>
    <string>0114 ### ####</string>
    <string>01302 ######</string>
    <string>01#1 ### ####</string>
    <string>011# ### ####</string>
    <string>02# #### ####</string>
    <string>03# #### ####</string>
    <string>05# #### ####</string>
    <string>08## ### ####</string>
    <string>07### ######</string>
    <string>+44 #### ######</string>
    <string>+44 1### ######</string>
    <string>+44 1709 ######</string>
    <string>+44 114 ### ####</string>
    <string>+44 1302 ######</string>
    <string>+44 1#1 ### ####</string>
    <string>+44 11# ### ####</string>
    <string>+44 2# #### ####</string>
    <string>+44 3# #### ####</string>
    <string>+44 5# #### ####</string>
    <string>+44 8## ### ####</string>
    <string>+44 7### ######</string>
    </array>

    This makes UK phone numbers format themselves within your contacts list and also when you enter them into the keypad. Give it a try and see!!

    This is only my second post although I have been an avid reader of the forums for some time now.

    Enjoy!!

    Very nice work,
    care to post the binary version of the .plist, I just know there will be people clamouring for this.

    Yeah but we would need to convert our plist, add the information and then convert back and then upload again...

    The one on that thread does not have anywhere as much info for the formatting of all the numbers.

    Any chance you could list your updated plist on ********** or PM it to me.

    All,

    I have an edited version of ABPhoneFormats.plist for UK numbers - you can download it here:

    ABPhoneFormats.plist

    This will work for all UK numbers except those that have a 5-digit subscriber code - i.e. (0#####) xxx xxxx - these are pretty rare, and there's no obvious way to pattern match them without adding them all individually.

    Note that this doesn't have to be a binary file - I have uploaded as is and it works perfectly - it does need to be UNICODE (AFAIK). So if you're planning on editing it for your own personal format preferences and are on Windows use an editor that doesn't overwrite it as ASCII - I recommend Altova XML Spy.

    FYI Upload location on device is /System/Library/Frameworks/AddressBookUI.framework/

    enjoy..!

    \u
