Recognizing Contacts - Possible Newb Question
I have become addicted to BlackBerry after moving from Windows Mobile last summer, and have enjoyed every minute. After my unlocked 9530 died on me, I decided to leave 8 years of touch screening for the new T-Mobile Bold 9700 (finally went 3G, hard keyboard, and roller pad). However, after transferring my information from one BlackBerry to another, I've noticed an issue that is likely a simple setting, but with only 13 months under my belt (and never any issues), I lack the knowledge of the RIM devices.
I did get all contacts successfully loaded onto my phone, allowing me to send and recieve calls with full recognition. However, when recieving an SMS, the sender information is reflected as "+1719XXXXXXX". Now the number is in fact in my contact list, however in the format run from my Storm (and in Outlook) which is "(719) XXX-XXXX". Therefore, I get only the number on the sender's line (with no names), and my custom message alerts are obviously impacted as well.
Is this a simple input setting (such as an option with Windows Mobile) or a simple fix? Or do I need to modify all of my contacts to the format of "+1719XXXXXXX" (which will not allow me to send the text since the format exceeds 10 digits)?
Lost, and looking for a successful fix, even if I have to change all 368 contacts.
Thanks in advance!!!
