    guys look for this file /var/root/library/preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist

    u shld c somthing like this :

    <key>AppleLanguages</key>
    <array>
    <string>en</string>
    <string>ja</string>
    <string>fr</string>
    <string>de</string>
    <string>es</string>
    <string>it</string>
    <string>no</string>
    <string>pl</string>
    <string>ru</string>
    <string>sv</string>
    <string>da</string>
    <string>fi</string>
    <string>pt</string>
    <string>pt_PO</string>
    <string>zh_CN</string>
    <string>zh_TW</string>
    <string>ko</string>
    </array>
    <key>AppleLocale</key>
    <string>en_US</string>

    i changed "en_US" to "fr" just for the sake of trying it restart and the "slide to unlock" date changed to the corr. lang
    also calendar language changed im not sure if it changed the # formatting

    the only thing is i couldn't change it back to "en_US" for some reason but i had to restore my phone any ways ... so TAYOR

    I have also played with some pref files. Unfortunately, I can't find were the iPhone store the information on how it should change a local phone number to an international one.

    I also noticed two problems with the current state (sorry if it was already posted, I have not read everything). In Switzerland, local number are like 0xx xxx xx xx. The international format for the same number is +41 xx xxx xx xx. So the first 0 of the local number is dropped. But the iphone doesn't drop the first number. When a call comes in, it receives the local number (ie 079 123 45 67). To change it to international format, it just add +1 at the beginning. So if I store the number as +1 079 123 45 67 in my contact, it finds it.

    So currently, they are 2 settings to change on the iphone. We must be able to tell it that the local phone number should be prefixed with +41 (in my case) and that the leading 0 of the local phone number should be removed.

    Hope we could find something.

    first sorry for my english and coming mistakes
    if you use iphone in usa and somebody calls you but he/she is not under your contacts you see the us phone nummer and which city and state on your iphone display
    if somebody can fix it for other countries it will be mega super

    guys, related problem, my iphone refuses to find the contact's names from the address book...

    here in brazil, due to stupid legislation, we need to dial in the following format:

    xxxx-xxxx (local numbers 8 digits)
    0-YY-DD-XXXX-XXXX (long distance, the YY is the "carrier" you wanna use which needs to be chosen per call, and the DD is the city code, and Xs are the 8 digit phone numbers)

    is there anyway for the iphone to recognize this?? I usually store all my phone numbers with the carrier in them (so something 041-11-3333-3333 as opposed to 3333-3333), and when i'm roaming i dont need to do anything else, but when i recieve the call, it shows 3333-3333 but the iphone isnt smart enough to match that... has anyone found a workaround for the iphone to match from the right, for example (just like 99% of phones)?

    IMO, the problem is not the iPhone. It's the hack. The iPhone, with turbo sim or silver hacks, still think he's "talking" to an ATT sim. It gets IMSI and ICCID corresponding to the ATT card. And the ATT card tells the iPhone that it's an US card. So the iphone use the US prefix. Logical. So unless we find in the iphone how to change the rules for US numbers, I'm afraid there's no chance to get this fixed.

    What you say does make lots of sense... I would have thought that maybe the phone number format plist would be used... does anyone really know the format of that? I guess # matches a digit, 0-9 match themselves as does -().... and $ matches multiple numbers? and it will try to fit in in order of the strings, top to bottom... I wonder if there is anything else we can put there...

    there is a file ABInternationalCodes that lists all country codes and all US area codes. I wonder if that will help.... I'm going try changing that a bit.....

    I also tried playing with these files. No luck at the moment. Will be interesting to see how the iphone acts with a true unlock.
