Default How to display phone numbers w/ spaces or dashes

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to make the 7100t display phone numbers in the address book and on the screen w/ spaces or dashes separating the standard digit format? 913-555-1212 OR 913 555 1212. It drive me nuts to see all ten smooshed together.

I can understand you point but it drives me nuts also when I dial my international number which is like this: 9898-8799-786 and it will format it according to US format..I agree with you that there should be some default way to rearrange these digits -

Default Clarification

How does it display them in US format? My phone numbers just show up like - 9135551212 - no number format at all? Is this how yours show up?

it is quite fustrating and i have seen this in most of the phones from all companies. I think that they should come up with a standard like the land line and use it. It makes it so much easier to read.
