    Is there some way to program my phone so it knows my local area code? Reason I ask is that I never entered area codes for many the contacts on my old phone, which are all on my SIM card, because I could enter my area code into memory.

    I just got my Aria, and when I get a call from a contact within my area code, their contact name, which is saved on the SIM card, does not come up. Instead, their entire number, with area code comes up. Do I need to go in and input the area code for all of my contacts that have the same area code as me???

    I hope I understand your problem correctly:

    There is no need for the cell phone to know what your "local" area code is. Simply make sure your contacts have area codes.

    Just export your contact list using GMail Contacts. Then add the area codes to them.

    In a spreadsheet, you could simply Copy (###) to clipboard and then Paste it before each phone number entry. It would be pretty quick.

    I went in and added the local area code to all of my old contacts that were within my local area code. Problem fixed, although I'm surprised that the phone doesn't have an option where you can enter your local area code so it can recognize it automatically.
