Default does not recognise contact if number has +X dialing code

Please Login to Remove!

here's an interesting one, im sure it must be simple to fiz, as every other phone ive ever owned copes with it

baiscally if i have a number ie: +44 12345678 in my contacts list, when that person rings me it will show as incoming 012345678 (like a normal UK number) the BB does not realise that this is the contact i have listed as +4412345678 so does not show their name.

if i set the contact up as 012345678 then incoming calls show up fine, but texts will display as +4412345678

(as texts show up as the whole number inc. dialing code, but calls show with no international code)

so basically i have to choose if i want people to display properl for calls, or for messages.


surely theres a way of setting it so that the blackberry knows that anything prefixed with +44 is the same as anything starting 0? every other phone ive ever owned knows this and doesn't care?

Go into the Phone Application.
Click the trackwheel and select Options
Select Smart Dialing
Change the Country Code to the appropriate code.

Good luck!

I did that.. and I also put the area code.. the problem is that land lines and cell operators different area codes and the number length varies depending on the provider.. No matter what I do.. i still have the problem as stated by the original poster

It works. Are you TMobile USA?

Do as described (also here in FAQs): My Caller ID name/number do not show when I get a call or SMS - BlackBerryFAQ

AND remove the + country code from contact numbers in your address book.

OK it works.. i kept putting that the local number is 9 digits.. but since the 0 is the first digit.. if you put the country code it doesn't display the 0, so i had to change the length of local number to 8.

Thanks guys
