    If the number has a country code in front of it in Address Book then when this person calls it won't show the name (basically it doesn't relate the number calling to the number stored in Address Book, since the number calling doesn't have the country code in front of it).
    Is there anything I can do about this? Is this a known issue?

    I was thinking about storing the number also without the country code but having the same number twice seems kind of extreme.

    Does anyone have an idea?

    i have the format +44 1234 123456 and it works for me, including when roaming, how have you got it? this could be where the problem lies! you have to drop the leading 0 and add +nn where nn is the area code.

    It seems like it only works for some country codes. As soon as it is a 3 digit country code it doesn't work anymore. Kinda sucks, but oh well.

    Will this patch also work with an unlocked 1.1.3 iphone?

    There are patches for 1.1.2, 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 firmwares, so just choose the one you need.
