Hi,

Hoping someone can help. I'm an American living in the UK, therefore I have contacts for both countries in the People app. Is it possible to alter the number format to match the country, in the corresponding contact files?
I bluetoothed my contacts from android with the Transfer My Data app and they all seem to be in the US format, now. So, if I can't change each contact, how can I make all the contacts appear in the UK format? Seeing that the majority of my contacts are in the UK.

Thanks loads

Late reply, do you mean the international code? I've never really played with the contacts, over the years I've adopted using the international code from the old Windows Mobile days

Yeah Ash, that's it. I've fixed it now, but can't exactly remember what I did. I "think", I wiped them all, and then found an option in WP8 that enabled In't codes (not sure where?) and then I booted up the G300 (Android) and used Transfer My Data again.

Anyway, now all my contacts, whether US or UK all appear with the In't code/format
