Here is the scenario: my Icelandic mobile network operator, Nova, doesn't provide the same caller ID when a contact calls me as when he texts me. For example, if the contact’s mobile phone number is 855-0505 and he gives me a call, the caller ID is 8550505, contact is found and his name is displayed – all is well. However, when the same contact then sends me a text message, the caller ID is +3548550505 (the country code +354 is added). And this results in WP7 not finding the contact and the SMS conversation is created using the number instead of the contact’s name.
Anyway, trying to work around this problem, I put +3548550505 as the contact's pager-number and the contact is then found when he calls me (from his mobile number 8550505) and when he texts me (from the pager-number +3548550505). Great! Irritating to setup, but still, one step forward.
Then, if I use the 'text mobile' function to send a text to the contact, WP7 creates (or adds to an already existing) conversation using this 8550505 number. Then, when my contact gets the text and replies, and the reply is received by my WP7 phone, it will start yet a new conversation using the Caller ID +3548550505.
What do I do now? How do I work around this problem? Is it possible?
The answer may be: Wait for the Windows Phone 7 update to reach your phone. Period. Wait. So, I will.
