    yeah, no luck so far... i tried everything, changed internationalcodes, changed mobile codes so that it would see 310 as BR instead of us, but it seems like it isnt using that particular plist for that....

    its weird...

    I guess i'll have to edit my numbers in outlook and re-synch...

    It seems that the sim is finally not the reason. I have now an unlocked phone running with my Orange swiss card. And the iphone still add the US prefix to incoming calls. There should be a param somewhere. I can't believe Apple hardcoded this.

    I tried to modify the format in <key>us</key> and it works like a charm.
    I lived in Hong Kong, so my format is vary from other country.

    Original us format;
    <key>us</key>
    <array>
    <string>+1 (###) ###-####</string>
    <string>1 (###) ###-####</string>
    <string>(###) ###-####</string>
    <string>###-####</string>
    <string>011 $</string>

    Modified HK format
    <key>us</key>
    <array>
    <string>+852 ##########</string>
    <string>852 ##########</string>
    <string>##########</string>
    <string>########</string>
    <string>001 $</string>

    Everything seems to work, I can have correct call display now.

    Great Work!

    Two Questions: on the original there is <string>011 $</string>, on your version <string>001 $</string>. For what is this string?
    +82 is ne international dial for your country?

    011 is the prefix for dialling internationally in the US

    hm, ok. Problem is, Germany don't have something like that.. Just dial the country prefix and number.. Should germans leave it blank?

    Don't you dial 00 in Germany before the country code?

    Hi

    The more I've played with this plist, the more I am convinced that it has nothing to do with phone number pattern matching for incoming or outgoing calls and caller ID.

    It only ever match properly with US numbers (like it will match +1 1234567890 and 234567890) but that is it.

    It will not match: 001 1 1234567890 even though it would get to the same number.

    This seems to be only used for formatting the phone number in the Phone keypad properly.

    I have the same feeling. By changing this plist, you will have your phone number formatted correctly. But it won't change anything in finding the corresponding contact. Currently, the only solution is to change all contacts to local phone numbers. Not a big problem with some scripting in Outlook. But not a good solution for people travelling.

    Hi all,

    Before Turbosimming my iPhone I saw within Settings -Phone an option 'International Assist to add the correct prefix to U.S. numbers, and after Turbosimmed this option has disappeared from Settings - Phone , but it is still onto the iPhone User Guide page 42


    "Set iPhone to add the correct prefix to U.S. numbers when dialing from abroad
    m From the Home screen choose Settings > Phone, then turn International Assist on or
    off. By default, International Assist is on."

    So imho something happened with the Turbo Sim patch,

    Peloche,
