    Hi guys. How can i change cellphone number display w/o rooting and w/o installing launcher app.
    Display is in this format: 090-xxx-xxxx
    Wanna change it to: 090x-xxxxxxxx or have the "-" symbol removed.
    Thanks in advance.

    It's funny cause I have been looking to do the opposite and could not find out how. I wanted the hyphens (-) to be added automatically but in vain. Would you know how to do that? Thanks in advance!

    I did something that regained the hyphens back unintentionally, so maybe it'll help you get rid of them. Menu button>Settings>Display>Animation I choose All Animation and the hyphens are back. Thought it might help you, good luck!

    Let me know if it works for you, you know I talked to Samsung technical support (Live Chat) and he did not know what I was talking about, so would be nice to know for sure how this works.

    Here is how to switch on/off hyphens in numbers:

    To Turn On: Goto Settings--> Locale & Text --> Select Language --> English (US)
    To Turn Off: Goto Settings--> Locale & Text --> Select Language --> English (UK)
