    None of my contacts have the country code in their phone number. When someone texts me from a number that does contain it, Messages only recognizes that person by their phone number rather than their name. Anyone else noticing this? Is there a solution?

    Are you updating to iOS 15 today?

    Curious to know how others approach this. Me, I always wait for the first incremental update to save myself the trouble I've occasionally had in the past. Feel free to post and motivate your choice, and to prevent the thread from sinking. Thanks & happy updating, whenever (if) you do!
