You have many of your contacts saved with an international dialling prefix e.g. +234807xxxyyyy. Some others are in standard format e.g. 0807xxxyyyy. So, you get this phone that you like, but notice that when a number that you have saved with an international dialling prefix calls you, the phone does not display caller ID. But if you have an incoming number saved in standard format, the caller’s name is displayed.
Is there something one can do to make a phone recognise contacts saved with an international dialling prefix? Feel free to share how this can be addressed on the different platforms that you have used. No; please do not suggest that one edits one’s contacts. Some people have thousands of contacts.
Thanks for your contributions.
