In an earlier question, I asked how to handle international phone book entries while traveling internationally. The simple answer was simply to store phone numbers in their international form, which works like a charm, except for one thing.
Incoming text messages don't always get assigned to the proper contact.
I may send a text to contact Bob, who's phone number is
+52 333 555 12 12 (a Mexican number). He gets the text just fine, but when he replies, the message appears to come from simply
333 555 12 12. As a result, I end up with two conversations, one to 'Bob', and one to
333 555 12 12, which isn't associated with any of my contacts.
Is there a way to make my phone recognize these numbers as the same (without creating duplicate entries for all of my contacts--one with the +52 and one without)?
