Nokia 6310i with firmware v7

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.nokia (More info?)

Does anyone know if there is an option to format phone numbers in the North
American style on the phone ? NNN NNN NNNN, as opposed to NNNNNNNNNN as
they all read now.

I am in Canada and my latest firmware upgrade to V7 I think has never been
officially released in North America - making it hard to read numbers! I
know European numbers are different in format and suspect this fimware
assumes a European number by default.

Thanks.

    How could it? The 6310i is a "world" phone so there's no one parsing
    of numbers. How could there be since the NANP is 3+3+7 it's only that
    way in the NANP. How could a phone possibly adjust for all the
    different parsing of numbers world-wide? If you want a phone that
    parses 3+3+7 get a North America only phone.

    I don't understand what you mean..? How you format a number on paper
    doesn't affect how you dial it, does it..?

    I think he wants the phone *display* to show the number as one would
    write it down on paper -- with spaces -- rather than as an unbroken
    string of digits.

    (I can sympathise with him: I'd like the option for my phone to
    display "+44 20 7123 4567" instead of "+442071234567", and have it
    ignore the spaces when it dials.)

    My old firmware was 4.20 (I think).

    Under the old firmware when I entered a number 1234567890
    it would display as follow
    123
    456 7890

    The area code would move up to its own line and then the number would show
    up below, with a space inserted properly. It would format for NA numbering
    somehow.

    With the new firmware (v7), this does not happen anymore and I really miss
    it.

    I was polling to collective to see if there was an undocumented menu to
    enable this <feature>....

    Thanks anyhow.

    Hmm, yes I see. Personally it's never bothered me, but I don't know of a
    phone that does allow it. Of course there's every chance I'm wrong..!

    I've never seen this either, but what's curious is that the OP's
    question makes it sound as if his old firmware did allow it.

    Maybe someone will tell us if NAmer mobiles (sorry: cellphones over
    there!) display "123 456 7890"?

    As he says he's using a 6310i which is primarily a European phone, and I
    also have several of these (in the UK), I don't think so. It doesn't here,
    anyway.

    None that I've ever seen, but again I could be wrong.

    Oh, agreed entirely -- my 6310i firmware (UK phone)) is 5.x something,
    and it only does strings of numbers. (I thought maybe other NAmer-only
    phones might allow formatting; dunno.)

    Me too; it's not something I've ever thought about before.

    FWIW (very little), I figure that whilst spaces are problematical, it
    wouldn't be incredibly difficult to program so that dashes or
    something in the display -- +44-20-7123-4567 -- were ignored when
    dialling.

    Hardly a killer feature for a phone, though....
