    everything was fine with my att sim even being in DUbai but as soon as I put my local SIM from dubai in there all my contacts are still there but in my text messages non of their names are showing up and the format changed from (xxx)xxx-xxxx to xx-xxxxxxxx and this is super annoying cause now non of their names show up plus the people i did have in my phonebook internationally are listed as 011-xxxx-xxx-xxxx but now locally i don't do any 011 or country code just the number, is there an easier way than having to reput all the numbers?

    Also how come I cannot iMessage certain people that I know have iPhone4s but others it shows up as iMessage

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    It has to do with international phone number formating and probably needs adjusting.
    Its setup different than it is in the US when it comes to area code, country code etc...
