Digit dropped from received number

    My friend has an 11 digit mobile number which starts 0777xxxxxxx. When he texts me, 90% of the time my SGS2 reports the number as 077xxxxxxx and of course does not indicate who the message is from because it does not know the number (being short of a 7). If I reply to the message, the transmission fails - it is not a valid mobile number. Occasionally his number is correctly reported. He has an iPhone 4 and my SGS2 only has trouble with his particular number. Any help with this problem gratefully accepted.:)

    I'm not sure if this would work but I guess it can't hurt. Edit his number in your contacts, remove the 0 at the beginning and replace it with +44

    Edit: does anyone else have problems receiving texts from your friend? Since all other text are fine on your phone it could be a problem with his phone sending the number rather than yours receiving it.

    Thanks for your response ;0)

    No one else appears to have problems receiving texts from my friend.

    Never thought of the +44 idea - will try and report back

    since prefixing number with +44 - no more occurrences of problem. Will keep informed...... ;0)
