    Hi. I have a problem with any SMS App and Dialers hope you could help:(Note I searched lot for this on the net but no real answer)
    In My country Phone number are 8 digits (2 area code + 2 Phone Number). Some area codes start with 0. I store the numbers as follows:03xxxxxx in phone book. When a message is received it's received with country code ahead of the number:ex. if country code is 876 then number would be 8763xxxxxx - (Att that the 0 is removed). hence the SMS app doesnt recognize the contact name. If I store the Numbers as 8763xxxxxx then SMS app will show the name properly but the Dialer application wouldn't find the contact name since when receiving a call, the local number is shown without the country code(i.e 03xxxxxx).
    I don't have the problem with contact in area code not starting with 0.
    Could you please advise where is the problem since I see other android phones dont have this issue.
    I have Desire HD.
    Thanks
