    Try changing the settings in the 'Call' app to have the numbers show exactly as you type them so that the phone doesn't automatically add the country code.

    All apps > Settings > Call > Home Dialing > No. Use original number

    I have a similar problem, my friend logged onto hee Facebook and synced contacts by mistake, now I have a load of numbers of people I don't know and I can't delete them or change them at all. It only gives me the option to save it on my sim, link it to another contact or setup a speed dial. Any ideas? Cheers

    If you delete the facebook (for sense) and facebook accounts from within

    Settings -> Sync and Accounts....

    This should remove the Facebook numbers from the phone.

    Simply re-adding the Facebook for Sense account and then syncing will get the numbers back, but, this time when it asks if you want to sync contacts just say that you only want to sync to existing contacts rather than all contacts
