    It may also mean that the iPhone detects a non US sim card. So a setting to add US prefix to contact numbers is not useful anymore.

    Hi,

    Not exactly, this option is done for when you are out of the US, it disappeared from the menu but it remains "on" and this is the problem, better was to desactivate it before adding the Menu "SIM Applications", perhaps the number of items within the menu "Phone" is limited ?

    turning that option on or off (international assistance) doesn't do anything in the matter of detecting the correct number in the phonebook.

    the .plist has anything to do with the finding the numbers in the address book. you can verify this by deleting all the nodes in the plist. the numbers in the address book don't have any visual formating (neither in the keypad), but if you save a number with +1 and type only the number (without the +1) in the keypad, it finds that number correctly.

    so it has to be in other place...

    someone said that they have an unlocked phone and that didn't do anything, so the iphone doesn't care about your number international code...

    someone in irc was talking about the locale.. maybe changing the locale would change that setting, but no go either. i have my locale set to my country and it's the same effect.

    The more we talk about this, the more I'm sure it's a bug (or lake of feature). A lot of people have tried to get something. But in all cases, iPhone add the US prefix to incoming calls. And in all previous phones I had, I never had to set something for the phone to know my international prefix. The phone probably gets this information from the sim. The iPhone seems to be unable to do the same.

    i think they tried to be smart, alltough the better practice for this is to be pratical. the most rapid way of matching the phone numbers would be to search for a substring in the ending number.
    My nokia 8310 does that in that way...
    for example, i add a contact with the number +5854684 555555555 (note the last nine 5). If i dial 555555555 the phone finds that address book. that means the phone just looks for the last numbers in the entire phonebook and if one matches that's the address book entry displayed.
    in iPhone, i think apple wanted to do this the smart way... so it only looks for +1 XXXXXX and not a substring of the entire address book number.....

    The old nokia was just using a solution that won't take ages to get a result. But the iPhone has all contacts in a SQLlite db and is driven by a 620MHz processor. So I think it should be able to search correctly for a contact. But the iphone does two errors. First, it always add the US prefix. Then, it doesn't take local formating into consideration. In Switzerland, local phone are store as 0xx xxx xx xx. To get the international format, the first 0 has to be removed and the swiss prefix added (I think it's the same in France). So the international version is not +41 0xx xxx xx xx, but +41 xx xxx xx xx. And all my previous phones were able to do this automatically. Never had to set a parameters, even with some home cooked HTC roms.

    Well.... looks like it's coded for US only. In the TelephonyUI file ther's references to both 011 (out of USA) and +1. Tried to HEX edit it but it did not help :-(

    Great. Hardcoded in the app. It seams Apple will have some work before reaching european market (and I don't talk about keyboard, mms and 3g) :-)
