    Hi,

    I have a simple problem but couldn't find a solution. My phone groups the digits of the phone numbers with dashes. In fact this is a good thing for readibility but it groups it in the wrong format according to my locale and this makes harder to read the numbers.

    For example; when I type 02125568899 it groups it as 021-255-68899 but the right grouping should be 0212-556-8899. How can I make this right, or even disabling this grouping is also OK for me!

    Does anyone know how to change/disable this grouping function?

    Note 1: My location is not listed in the "Locale & text" options setting.
    Note 2: My phone is Samsung Galaxy with baseband version I7500XXIK4

    I'd like to know the answer to that too!! I live in Brazil currently and am using a Desire bought in the US. I don't want to change the language to pt-br, as I preffer English.

    Currently my digit grouping must be: 999-9999-9999 or 99-9999-9999 or 9999-9999.

    Thanks to anyone who can help me with that!
