A few minutes after I posted that, I am not feeling optimistic about that answer, so what you might try (just to find out if it's going to work or not), is try to enter the number the way it's received as a SECOND number for that contact.
One number would be as how you would need to have it to dial out (which is how you have it now) and the second number would be without that "0" area code in it. For outgoing calls/txt, use the first number. The second number would "match up" with the incoming call and show the name, I would guess. Unfortunately, you would have to add the shortened number to each contact.
So, next thing to try might be instead of having a "0" for area code, try no area code (blank). This is possible, I wasn't sure but I just tried it so it should work for you. Then that would mean editing your contact's numbers again but of course no need to do that unless it works.
I'd guess that the adding the second number would work, no reason I can think of why it shouldn't; as when I am overseas but still using my local sim card, I don't change my +1 country code, my area code or my national number length, I just add the number the way it appears on incoming to my contact as a second number and it comes up with their name. Sure, it says "John Doe (Work)" but at least I know it's John Doe. That said, I didn't have to redo my entire address book as I only had one or two contacts to do that with.
You can edit and add numbers far faster in Outlook using cut and paste if it comes to that though. Good luck and let us know what worked for you.
