I'm using a Sony Live With Walkman. The Android 2.3 is in English, and I rather leave that way... But, I find kind awkward the mask input of numbers when I am typing.


Is there any way I can change that?

I would prefer something like 9999-9999, or at least no mask at all.

That is built into the dialer in the Sony's Android ROM and baked in. Try an alternative dialer! – t0mm13b Oct 4 '12 at 10:10

Well, as it may seen, there's no solution without relying on third-part softwares.

Instead, I (partially) solved it by changing the language for English UK, where the numbers format are without separators. Ex: 99999999.
