    Is there a way to modify the format in which phone numbers are displayed in Contacts? The phone number format in Contacts currently shows a number as 8885551212. It would be much easier for tired eyes to see the number in a different format like
    888 555-1212 . Is there a way to change the format the number is listed for aged and tired eyes? I would extremely grateful for any help.

    I believe the Android displays them as it syncs them from your Google contacts.

    I sync my contacts with Google Hosted Apps and down to Microsoft Outlook ... and Outlook is pretty obstinate about formatting phone numbers consistently, even reformatting them.

    I wish I could tell you how to do it in Google, but you might search to see if someone online has solved this. ;) Oh, ... there might be an Android app that does it.
