thanks for the help
i was wondering the same thing. i notice if i send a text to someone from my address book, it will show up as their name, but if they respond, it will show the number.
the only thing i can think of (and i haven't tried it, or even know if it would do this) but i entered my phones numbers in the address book as "(###) ###-####" -- when they show up as just a number, they are displayed as +1-###-###-####.
so i'm wondering, since it comes in formatted different, is the phone not recognizing the number from my address book?? anyone have any input??
could be, i think i may have done the same as you
iam sure i have seen a seen asetting for itelligent dialing or something which i think added the country dialing code I THINK????
come on guys we need you :-)
does nobody else get this?????
Yes, I get this too
Yep, I get this - It's so annoying.
I'd receive texts from numbers (that i recognise) and that are in my address book but it would show +4477xxxxxxxx etc.
I decided to change the phonebook entry for my contact from 077xxxxxxxx to +4477xxxxxxxx
and then the text messages showed the name.
Then, I'd get a phone call from the contact and that would show as 077xxxxxxxx and not the name !!!!
The only solution I can find is to have the contact with both 077xxxxxxxx and +4477xxxxxxxx
Which is a rubbish solution....
if there is a way to fix this then I'd definitely be glad to hear about it - I suspect they'd need to update the software, has anyone raised (or know how to raise) this issue to RIM/Blackberry ??
This has driven me mad. I am not going to enter two phone numbers for every mobile in my address book, Blackberry, get your *** in gear!
Anyone have any experience of this intelligent dialing setting that knighty talks about?
blackberry does have their "stuff" in gear.
go in your call log. click. go to options and it will be under smart dialing

Guy I have answered this problem twice now. I have it working fine with Vodafone UK. Please search the old replys to this problem.... John
Prioryman, Could you provide a link to those old replies. Sometimes the Search Engine misses some solutions if you don't have the Keywords correct. It can get quite frustrating.
Now we're all happy!
Was having this problem myself. Did as mentioned above Call Log --> Options --> Smart Dialling. Changed country code to +44 and as if by magic all my messages / missed calls had the name and not the number.
Thanks John, That makes it easier.
