Android not recognising phone numbers because of "+44" prefix instead of "0" prefix

    I got my HTC Desire today, and despite spending many hours carefully updating my Google contacts, I've found that received calls and SMS messages are not displayed with the contact they're from.

    I believe this is because the details in my contacts list are in the format "01234 567789", whereas the incoming calls/messages are in the format "+441234 567789", and it's not realising that the "+44" and "0" are interchangable.

    How can I resolve this, without going through all my contacts changing the prefix on the phone number?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Neil.

    Works fine here.

    BUT when I imported the contacts from my Nokia to my Hero, there appeared to be spaces before the 0 or +44 which caused issues. Only those with +44 would be recognised.

    For speed I exported them to a CSV file, removed the spaces, and imported back to the phone to sync with Google and all has been well since.
