    I originally had an Ally. Then I bought a Droid X and swapped it for the TBolt a little over a week later.

    With the Ally and DX, my phone book was fine. For some reason on the TBolt, all of my contacts now have the areacode prefix. So when I get a call from someone in my contacts list that is not listed that way, the phone shows the number with "unknown."

    Is there some way to stop that from happening? I looked in Backup Assistant online and don't see anything.

    Thanks.

    Probably a fault of Sense UI. Wish they'd include the AOSP Contacts.apk as a choice for managing contacts.

    Hmm. I guess I'll be emailing HTC.

    Barring that, is there some place to get that .apk without even considering a warez site?

    Wouldn't need to do it through warez, but as I don't have the phone, not familiar with its rooting scene and replacing the Contacts app.
