    I would like to have addresses in my address book formatted to the country in which my contact lives. However my addresses only appear in one format. Is this possible to go through and edit each of my contacts?

    Thank you in advance...

    I don't think this is possible.

    The only way to get foreign phone numbers to format correctly is to use + and the country code (e.g. +1), but there's no equivalent for addresses.

    Currently my addresses are in Japanese format (postal code first). This also changes the phone number field. I'd like to get it back to US format. I now believe that I have to mess around with Address Book on my laptop...
