    Hi everyone, I'm a newbie so please bear with me!

    I recently rooted my T-Mobile G1 and everything worked fine on the 3 UK network until recently... now all my contacts are in the US layout format i.e 078-555-555 this has only happened since I accidently clicked sync but as there was nothing set up to sync with, I quickly cancelled the action.
    I can't think of anything else that could have caused this, as I specifically followed the rooting process for UK handsets to prevent any of this. My keyboard is still the UK layout, just the call logs and and contacts that I add now are in the US format.

    if anyone knows of a setting to alter this or a command line to enter in the terminal emulator to revert it back then I will be very grateful.

    Thanks an advance.

    Thanks for all the help guys... I managed to find the solution myself, there is an app called MoreLocale 2 in the Market which allows custom locale to be used, entering EN/GB fixed this format problem. Hope this helps anyone in the future.
