    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.
    this works for me too... although i'm not in hong kong so i used 65 instead of 852.

    but this plist file only gets rid of the brackets and dashes and crap on the displayed iphone's numbers. so this plist only applies formatting to the number that the network sends (CID).

    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.

    docomar, the answer to your question is to be found above. The process is extremely simple once you know how to recover the .plist file, edit it and then put it back in the right place -- don't forget to backup your current .plist in the event that). Please note, however, that it is vital to copy and paste your country's number format (as it appears in the .plist) into the <key>us</key> array, since the iPhone v. american, will only consider the US array. Yes, I know, there are places that you can change the country settings of the iPhone (2 to be precise), but as we have all discovered, the number format don't change, whereas other things do like the ical features, etc., but it's not possible to switch this back in the event that you don't like what its done without a full restore.

    Would you relax and read? I don't have my phone yet. Talk only if you have a reason to.

    Anyone else? I think its a possible work around until the locales are hacked

    Thanks Snowbird, I only forgot how to recover any .plist file;
    and once edited, maybe a stupid question : can I use ibrickr to put it back at the right place by uploading it ? Or am I obliged to go, through iphoneinterface and type putfile ....
    Thanks a lot for your answers

    The process is simple (even after a bottle of wine....),

    1. jailbrack your phone
    2. Install SSH on your phone via AppTapp/Installer
    3. install winscp if your PC or fugu if your Mac
    4. SCP the .plist file to your PC/Mac
    5. Make a copy of this file.
    6. Use the website mentioned above to convert to a readable file
    7. Find your country and then copy the contents and paste the information to the US section and save the file.
    8. SCP back the file to the orginal location - listed above
    9. The changes will take effect without reloading

    Et voila......

    this works by changing the number format for the us.. because the phone thinks it's still in the us. so you're giving the phone a new format for the us, including your own country code.

    the ABPhoneFormats.plist file will also force the format for all countries that are included in that file. so if you want all your numbers to be consistent you need to edit the file the same way for all those countries.

    if the country code of a number that i use or receive calls from is NOT in this plist file then my phone will default to no format (ie no spaces, no dashes, no brackets) because either it defaults to my new 'us' format (no spaces, dashes or brackets) or because it is defaulting to something else... but i can't find anything else so i think it's defaulting to my home/us settings

    i think putting 2 numbers into your phone is the only work around at this stage.....

    somewhere there will be a script or app that checks the incoming CID and compares this with all phonebook entries and if there's a match it will show a name. this needs to be re-written to use last 6 digits of CID (per nokia method).

    i haven't found this yet.

    That script would be great. Meantime the two number format should be fairly easy to implement, I have done it once already in the past.

    Do you know a fast way to accomplish this? I have several hundred contacts. Maybe an export to Excel and some formula?

    Thanks

    Ben
