    Sure can... you need to type the number into the address book that way, though. When you're in a # field, press the ALT key, then the SYM key to bring up the symbol screen and then press Q/W to get the hyphen.

    I enter them in outlook so when I synch, it is in there right. But I am not always at my computer so I wish it would enter the parens around tha zip and dash in the phone number. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    You can add parentheses around the area code the same way from the pearl. Tap ALT, tap SYM, tap SYM again. Q/W for "(" and E/R for ")". I just tried it as (xxx) xxx-xxx for my land line (note the parens and space) and my incoming call screen correctly displayed the format.

    That's what I'm running, too.
    Are the incoming calls from people listed in your addressbook? Or random calls? People I've got entries for, display on Incoming as I've got them entered in my addressbook. I'll have to pay attention to the display next time I get an unknown call... which is almost never.

    I guess it's a no-no to mention the iphone theme or something...I'm reading the theme site and everyone seems to mention it by that...am I wrong? :-)

    Re: dashes in phone number

    I always wondered if this could be done also, thanks Sarbin. However, I noticed if I have a pic save for an individual and I use the dashes in the ph number, when they call, all the numbers are not displayed. I'm assuming it's because of the picture. It works fine otherwise.
