Have something similar - some numbers have now not been associated with the contact names while others have.

So I have a mix of 027 and 021 that do both - doesn't seem to be a clear reason for it either.

Will have a play - may be the formatting from Outlook

My 3G is doing the same thing, though 021 numbers come through fine.

Only telecom contacts come through as numbers, and it's only a handful of them. With no real pattern as to which contacts....

It is best to store/keep your contacts in + format.

Same here - no real pattern that I can discern

It appears to map different numbers for MMS and Text.



I can add 027 next to a contact and the SMS shows fine but MMS doesn't.



On the flipside if I add +64 and remove the 0 - MMS works but SMS doesn't.



If I add both to the contact it all works but that's ridiculous


Note: this is on exisiting conversations which may be the issue.

usually; IIRC; its numbers that are a certain length.

021 123 456 works fine,
021 123 456 78 does not work fine.

021 123 456 78 does not work fine.


And there's no real way to fix that. Will have a play with outlook I guess. Frustrating nonetheless!

Yeah thats right.
Orginally, with iphone 1.1.x up until i think it was 2.0 or 2.1 it was able to be fixed by a simple file edit.

but they have since changed things and its not like that anymore :(


unfortunately, even the 3G has the same problem and Apple were in no hurry to fix it - one of the reasons i got rid of my iPhone. 
They had numerous complaints about it, but never followed through with anything; they would blame Vodafone and Vodafone would blame Apple.

Apparantly Vodafone had to process a ticket for Apple to review and then send out an update to the phones.

Either way, problem not fixed.

The best thing you cna do (as much as it sucks) is add both the 021 and the +6421 code into your phone books (and same to the 027 +6427 numbers)


EDIT: Won't fix your problem, but look here at a previous thread that has some information about it.

Interestingly enough - the International Settings show support for 10 digits (as below) - but the 10 digit numbers don't all work.

Will try formatting them all to +64 and go from there.






As a side note - I deleted recent MMS & SMS from a friend, edited the contact and subsequent MMS & SMS came through correctly.

It may be that as long as all contacts have +64 all NEW messages are ID'd correctly but it throws out your existing communications.

More to come
