    I have a Us iphone which works perfectly apart from one thing. I have saved all of my contacts into the phone. In the Uk,numbers begin with 07, yet when I recieve a call or SMS, the numbers begin with +44, making it look like the numbers have not been saved on my contact list. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Change all your contacts to +447**********. Your iphone still has an American mind.

    This is not directly relivant, but helped me massivly!

    you know in the iphone when you type in a number with keypad it looks like so ' 012 34567890 '

    well this: http://iphone.unlock.no/#number-formating changes it to the proper uk format of:

    01234 567890

    Not in my case - my iPhone 1.1.4 is originally from the US and when a local number rings me it comes up with "019... " and NOT "+4419...."

    That URL doesn't work for me.

    Is there an app in the Installer that can help fix this issue?
    Re-numbering all my phone numbers for if I'm in or out of the country isn't really practical...

    Thanks.
