I'm not familiar with "Private Box". I know GO SMS Pro, and I know it doesn't have any problems with country code +86, which is actually where GO comes from. I've found the carrier sometimes appends the country code and sometimes they don't for incoming SMS, same for incoming calls as well, although an SMS app should be able to deal with that. I'd raise it as an issue and contact GO about it. It sounds very much like it's having difficulty with the various US number formats and putting names to the numbers. But AFAIK
it doesn't have a problem with Chinese phone numbers..such as..
010 xxxxxxxx (Beijing)
0755 xxxxxxxx (Shenzhen)
0479 xxxxxxx (Xilinhot)
+86 10 xxxxxxxx
+86 755 xxxxxxxx
+86 479 xxxxxxx
