Hi

I have a problem with my Blackberry Pearl displaying the name from my address book.

By way of example, I am in the UK where the dialing code is +44. If I get a text message or call from someone who is in my address book as +44 123 4567, for example, my Blackberry Pearl will often not display the person, just the number, however if i add their number, without the +44 but with an 0, it displays the correct person.

I could add the both versions of each user to my address book but that would take ages. The other problems is that calls from within my network, O2, come up as 07etc whereas calls from outside my network come up as +44 at least as far as I can tell.

Hope I have explained this clearly enough to understand.
Has anyone managed to solve this problem?

Thanks

R

I couldn't come up with the right combination of words to find the answer on here.
You've been a great help.
