Hey, when I enter a phone # it shows up as a string of ten numbers. Don't you thing it would auto put in dashes or dots for separation. It is very difficult to read. My 7 year old Nokia seperated them.

You'd think, but nothing I've seen indicates there's any way to do this. It's definitely a feature RIM should add. My old phone Samsung was smart enough to both format numbers (555-555-5555) and tell me the state to which the number belongs.

The BlackBerry is capable of handling many phone numbers from many countries... not just the United States.
The least common denominator here is to not put any separators in at all.
