    I noticed something strange today. I am on Vodafone UK and have edited the US formats to display the numbers correctly for UK.

    Today I called from the office number and it showed as incoming call from +44....... I was very surprised. I checked and the Name was not shown because the number was not in the contacts. So I added the number as +44......... I tried again, but this time it showed incoming call from 01932.......... It agaid and it showed the Name the number was saved under. I did not understand why. But I have tried again a number of times and it only shows as 01932. The name is no longer showing. But it did do it twice as +44.... and the Name display.

    Can anyone explain?

    Its a known bug in iphone....search the forum. Add two entries for contacts, one with +44 and one with 0... then SMS & calls will show the contact. Its hoped the bug will be fixed in the next firmware release.

    I've posted an Applescript I wrote which will automatically parse through your address book and add the international prefixed version, or the local version to all existing numbers which only have one of the above.

    See this thread:
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?p=57084

    Until there's a software fix for the iPhone, I think your best bet is double-entry of mobile numbers for each contact. You can easily remove one of them later when it gets fixed

    g/luck!

    it's poor that this phone doesn't match the last 6 digits of the network reported CID with phonebook/contacts (as nokia do) to show up contact name... piss weak effort.

    i'll have a play with some files and see what else i can come up with.
    hey pal,

    Finally a solution!

    The 9 digit worked for me in the UK.

    Have a look:

    Well i changed both the ABPhoneFormats.plist and ABAddressFormats.plist. The ABPhoneFormats has a line for UK numbers in international format +44 xxxxxxxxxxx, but when receiving a text the pop up still does not display the contact name! Rather annoying really. Why does the pop up not show the name and yet the message list does.
