First of all:
Sample of a UK number: 07777 898989
Sample of a UK number with prefix: +447777 898989
Got my new Blackberry Pearl yesterday and put all my contacts in it. When i receive an SMS the name of the contact didnt show, the number came up with a prefix of +44 which is the country code for the UK instead of showing the first 0 of the number.
This meant that the phone didnt realise that prefix numbers and those with a 0 are the same numbers, so i changed all my contacts phone numbers to start with +44 thinking this would solve the problem.
When i did this, all my messages in my inbox have contact names next to them which is great, just what i wanted.
Today somebody rang me and their name didnt show up, the number did with a 0 infront of the number and not +44
So in conclusion, if all the numbers in my Address Book start with 0's then i can see who is calling when my Pearl rings however all my SMS's i wont know who they are from. Or if i have them set with +44 in front of the numbers i will know who all my SMS's are from, but not know when somebody rings me.
Is there some setting i can change to fix this problem.
Thanks a lot
