Thread: Inconsistency in phone/SMS CallerID display

    Default Inconsistency in phone/SMS CallerID display
    Hi, I'm from Singapore and I'm using a modified iPhone. Everything is fine except that I have this problem with the CallerID display. Here's what the problem is:

    I have the number of Friend A listed as +65 12345678 in the address book in my iPhone. When Friend A calls me, the Caller ID display will only show 12345678 and not Friend A because the +65 is not there.

    I then deleted the +65 from Friend A's number in the address book thinking that the problem is solved. But, when Friend A sends me a SMS, the number displayed on my iPhone is +65 12345678 and not Friend A!

    I then edited all the contacts in my address book so that each contact have 2 numbers, one with the country code (+65) and the other without. This solved my Caller ID problem but it screwed up my Phone Favorites cos I if I added the 2 numbers in each contact, iPhone Favorites list will show 2 Friend A! This will also screw up my phone Recent list cos calls between friend A and I will be split up in the phone log instead of one showing Friend A and the number of calls made.

    I hope I have not confused any of you and can anybody offer any help to this annoying issue?

    The easiest solution I've applied is to have both formats in the Contact

    Alternatively you can try fiddling with the Phone Format plist.
    Edit the following file on your iPhone:
    /volumes/"Root File System"/System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework/PhoneFormats
    It may be in Binary format so use an Binary to ASCII converter.
    Look for:
    <string>+65 ########</string>
    <string>001 $</string>

    Thanks for the tip jfmsam, but how do I do that? Do I need to start Terminal in my Mac?
