when i received a text from my friend's new vodafone phone number it said +6421 then the rest of his phone number. my friend is inside new zealand so why isn't the number being displayed as 021, instead of +6421? did vodafone change something?

It really doesn't matter - even if you are inside New Zealand if you call +64 it will be a local call. And it is best to always add numbers to your phonebook in the +[country] [area] format because if you go overseas you can dial directly from the phonebook instead of having to manually enter the full number.

All numbers have always been sent with +64 at the front and this is the same with every GSM provider everywhere in the world

What type of phone do you have that doesn't display them properly? I've never yet to see a mobile that doesn't display numbers how they are received.

I think it may depend on how you've got the person's number stored on your phone? I sometimes get +642xxxx.. and sometimes 02xxxx..
