I just bought the LG KE770 Gold. Very shiney and pretty but...

I store all my numbers with +64... to allow me to ring all my NZ contacts when I travel.

SMS comes in with +64 as the sender's number prefix but phone calls in NZ come with 0064 or just 021 as number prefix.

My old Motorola V3X was able to pick out that these were NZ mobile prefixes

This LG phone can't tell that 021XXX... and +6421XXX... is the same contact :(

Has anyone had this issue before? Do I maybe just need some sort of software upgrade for my phone?

Phones dont know that +6421 is the same as 021, they just assume if the last 7 or 8 digits are the same, that its the same contact.
