Default Incoming calls do not match to address book.

Please Login to Remove!

I have a problem with incoming calls not matching to numbers in my address book. Instead my blackberry just shows the number.

The problem seems to be with the prefix attached to the number by the phone company. Here in argentina to dial a cellphone we have to add the prefix '15' to the number, but caller id for the incoming call shows '11' as the prefix. Unfortunately you usually cannot dial the phone number with an 11, so if I were to change the numbers in my phone they would match incoming calls but I wouldn't be able to dial from the phone book.

So far I have been adding a second version of each phone number to my addressbook with the different prefix, but this is going to be really inefficient with the 300+ numbers I have.

Is there a way to set the blackberry to only match the last 8 digits and ignore the rest?

All previous cell phones I've owned have been able to deal with this strange behavior but so far my blackberry cannot.

Any ideas???
