Default UK Phone Number Format

Please Login to Remove!

I have an 8100 that I bought from T-Mobile in the US, and I'm currently using it on T-Mobile in the UK, and I'm having trouble with the formatting of phone numbers. Text messages have the from number in the format +44 790 xxx xxxx, but phone calls show up in the format 0790 xxx xxxx. So if I store the number in one format in my address book, I can't see the names on phone calls, and if I use the other format, I can't see the names on text messages.

Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this, so I don't have to see everyone's phone number twice?

Thanks.

Go into the Phone App of the BB and then into Options --> Smart Dialling --> And change the Country Code to +44 and the National Number Length to 11 (10 would do ) then save and this should solve your problem.
