I have all my contacts with phone numbers (area code + the number) and during incoming calls the phone shows the contact name but when I get a SMS from the same person, the phone (or may be the carrier) automatically adds the international extension and the phone no longer recognize the contact. Any way to fix this problem?

[comment by Psb] For a change, why don't you try saving all your contacts with the International Suffix. For eg. +91-022-1234567890 for the contacts from Mumbai, India – geffchang Apr 11 '13 at 5:26
Is there easy way to add the international Suffix to all the contact list? – Yoav Apr 11 '13 at 21:47
@geffchang Well the format would be +91-22-1234567890 (no zero before 22) – Sumit Nathany Apr 12 '13 at 15:22
Pedant: That's a prefix. "Suffix" is something that comes at the end. – Al E. Apr 23 '13 at 12:59
