    I've been having an issue with area codes and text messaging. The contact's number is stored properly xxx-xxx-xxxx in the contacts. But when he sends a text, it only shows up as xxx-xxxx, so when I reply, of course, it won't send because Nebraska is now on mandatory 10 digit dialing. So then I have to compose a new message instead of just replying in the current thread.

    I had this issue at first, but only with the numbers entered in as (xxx) xxx-xxxx. So I made sure to change every number to xxx-xxx-xxxx and it seemed to fix it for a while at least.

    Any help is appreciated. Aside from this issue, I'm loving this phone and Android as a whole.

    Did it do that with your last phone because it might just be his carrier/phone not sending the caller id number correctly

    We both had iPhones last time and never had issues. Now he has the iPhone 4, and I got the Captivate. I'll try texting someone with a different carrier and see if that happens.

    Edit- Just texted someone with Sprint, and their number came over just fine. It's probably an AT&T issue.
