Workaround is to change the number to +19995551212 in your Contacts, which stinks.
This OS goes even further. My SMS was fine with .351. My contacts are listed in the format 5555555555 and now my SMS messages are showing up as 15555555555. I changed the contact to 15555555555 and +15555555555 and no luck. Still doesn't show contact names.
