this is being fun!
1. I uninstalled iSIM, but i remember there is no difference
So I need to know 3 things.
1. How do numbers look in your address book from iSIM
2 How do numbers look in your address book newly entered
3. How does an unmatched number appear when someone calls you.
2. if I add only a local number, will show as (123) 45678
if I add using long distance codes, will be like 0411112345678, no ()
3.if it's a local number, will show (123) 45678, long distance I do not remember, need to ask someone to call me from other city.
yes, i agree with you.
The application does not allow you to enter () and it does not save () they are simply displayed according to a set of rules and not stored.
However the phone numbers are just stored as a string of bytes. And so could contain any characters at all.
So although using the normal user interface it is not possible to enter anything other than numbers *#+P it is possible for other characters to be stored by other means.
yes, but i am using the same sim from my old phone and all numbers there where addes without any (), only numbers.
This is just an educated guess but say that iSIM actually copied () over from your sim to your addbook. Now you have actual () in the number for real. Which will confuse the matching algorithm.
You would not be able to tell the diferance between
2121234567 displayed as (212) 123-4567 and the number physically stored as
Except that if you change your international settings the former will change to a new format and the latter will not.
See what I mean ?
thanks for all your help Stuart. Looking forward to hear from you again today! Let's see if we can figure out all these issues.
