UK iPhone Number Format?

Is there anyway to change the way the phone numbers are displayed on the iPhone to the UK way? as right now the phone numbers are done the US way and I can't see a way to change them!

Also when I get a txt message I dont get a name appearing of my contact but instead it pops up with the number with the UK dialing code in front!

Is there anyway to fix these things? Thanks.

You can go to settings, phone and then turn international assist off.
Or in address book you can go to prefernces and then phone and then change the format.
