    Some great suggestions - thanks

    i'm now have my iphone working perfectly - activated, unlocked (using with Vodafone AU), have the GPRS working, and now the numbers look great when dialing
    hey mate, are you able to access sms'd numbers ie 9####### with out the 02 infront of it, if so how is it dun.
    cheers

    If you edit the M68AP.plist file as described here http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=10824 then you can go into Settings/International and select the region format to use
    This was the easiest and best method for me, and it works nicely.

    Not sure what happened there! Can you iBrickr into the phone?
    It you can - replace the new ABPhoneFormats.plist file with the original one and restart your phone.
    Did you do anything else besides update the ABPhoneFormats.plist file?
    Even if this file is completely missing my iphone operates OK.

    Well Frank, I just did what you've said, anything else.
    No, I can't iBrickr. The iPhone was not recognized.
    Anyway, I left it all night long turned it on (at least, trying) untill the battery died. Then I turned it on again, but nothing change.
    But I just restore, followed all the steps to unlock since the beginning and now it's working.
    The only problem is I lost all the information, but I don't care. Its working now. hehe
    Thank you for your help.

    Updating...
    I didn't lose the contact's information. When I started up the iTunes, it ask me if I'd like to recover my backup. It was awesome. hehe

    hello again, ive tried every variation and still no luck with 9#######. every other number works except for that 1. strange i cant work it out.

    hi mate, for sum reason wen i get an sms with a fone number
    (9#######) i cant seem to access the number but if the same number is sent to me as (9### ####) or (029#######) then i can. im pretty sure ive made the changes via UIPhoneFormats.plist. btw im running 1.1.1. i can access every other number except for that 1..any ideas.

    cheers mate

    Ok well I apologize for the long post but Italy has probably the most stupid numbering plan of this whole planet. Area codes are of 2, 3 or 4 digits, local numbers can be from 3 to 8 digits. A mess when it comes to formatting the numbers. Especially since for what I've seen there's no repeating operator in the numbering formating scheme the iphone uses (no the $ doesn't do that but if you find one post it here).
    So to correctly match the italian numbering plan you have to stick a huge list of patterns in your UIPhoneFormats file. Wrote it in no time so I'm not sure it works for every possible italian number but it looks like it should. Matches also 144 166 700 800 and the like numbers.

    You might also want to check this other post if you have troubles with the callerID not matching with and without the international code. Italy uses all sort of lengths for numbers so my best bet would be to go with the 7 or 8 digit patch:
    http://www.modmyi.com/forums/showthr...+number+format

    Here's the pattern list, read the whole thread to figure out where to stick it and remember to restart your phone (full restart).

    Default Central American numbers
    I use my iPhone in Guatemala, and I need the local numbers to be: ####-#### (with the hyphen) and US and other countries to be: (###) #### ####

    I can modify the US numbers (or any other) but my numbers just display ############ indefinetly (no parenthesis or hyphens)

    Can anyone tell me exactly how to modify the us numbers in order fot my iphone to display like I want it to? Help greatly appreciated!

    No, you don't need to have a Mac, just go in your selected program (Fugu, Ciberduck, etc.) and select the desired file and just copy it to your computer. I have a Mac, but I'm sure that Windows has an array of programs that let you do exactly that.

  12. #32
    thanks for that, so i would have to install that program, connect the iphone to the pc, then access the phone via the program?

    Just after upgrading to 1.1.2 and running iWorld for Australia, the file
    /System/Library/Frameworks/AddressBookUI.framework/ABPhoneFormats.plist
    doesn't exist on my system and when I insert the download above into that location and reboot iPhone, numbers are still unformatted.

    Is this a new 1.1.2 problem?

    Is this a new 1.1.2 problem?
    Most likely yes! I do not have that upgrade yet (mainly because of simptoms like yours). On 1.1.1 it works fine and should on 1.1.2 since it was released for the international market.
    My recomendation: downgrade to 1.1.1

    pwally You don't upload the mask to there.

    You upload it to:

    /System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework/PhoneFormats/UIPhoneFormats.plist

    Good luck.

    OH AND TO EVERYONE ON FIRMWARE 1.1.2
    Make sure you do not upload the modified .plist as it will cause your iphone to stay at the apple screen when you restart!

    Instead go into Settings > General > International > Region Format

    And choose a select few countries there.

    Hi,
    I am very new to the Apple family and i don't know how to access the file
    /System/Library/Frameworks/AddressBookUI.framework/ABPhoneFormats.plist
    I have the same problem for phone number format.

    Kindly do recommend some more sites where i can learn tips and tricks of Apple iPhone.

    PS i am using iPhone 3G 3.1.4

    Regards,

    no offence but you guys are wasting your own time and also risking files by altering it.

    just do what I did and go into cydia and install something that fixes this...I just downloaded one that senses which country you are in and corrects everything.

    p.s to the so called guy helping fellow aussies, you didn't help me out at all (a fellow aussie) .....next time buy a normal computer like a pc like the rest of us you silly mac user
