    Well since the 2.1 update, I have now found a bug with the contact list.

    All my phone numbers used to be formatted correctly, but they now appear incorrectly formatted, and I cannot find any way to change it.

    In my address book on my MBP, I have the following rules set up:

    1. #### ####
    2. 04## ### ###
    3. 1800 ### ###
    4. 13 ## ##
    5. 0# #### ####

    Now all the phone numbers are being correctly displayed in the Address Book on my MBP, and they used to be displayed correctly on my iPhone, but now they aren't.

    For example, a phone number that used to be #### #### is now displaying as # #### ###, and a number that used to be ## ## ## is now # #### #.

    Has anyone else got this problem? Do you know if there is a fix for it? I have checked the internationalisation settings, and it is set for Australia, which is fine.
    I have also tried getting iTunes to replace the Contacts on the iPhone with my Address Book ones, but that didn't fix it either.

    Cheers,
    Chris :)

    Does anyone have any idea? Is this just affecting Aussie users?

    Not sure. I keep it pretty simple: ie. (416) 827-1234.
