These are instructions on how to fix CallerID matching issues when making calls and texts in an unsupported country.

Unfortunately, Apple has not included the number formats for every country with the iPhone firmware. In the 1.1.x firmwares we had a patch for AppSupport which took care of this issue. In 2.x the older patch no longer works. Frank8 has created a fix for the 2.1 firmware which works for these countries. Big thanks to him for his work.

For your convenience this tutorial is available in video format also. Click the Watch It button to view the tutorial!

Step One
Press to launch Cydia from your Springboard.

Step Two
Press to select the Sections tab from the bottom of the screen.

Step Three
Press to choose the Localization section from the list.

Step Four
Press to select CallerID Fix Collection from the list of packages.

Step Five
Press the Install button at the top right hand corner of the screen.

Step Six
Press the Confirm button at the top right hand corner of the screen to begin installation.

Step Seven
Once installation has completed successfully click the large Return to Cydia button.

Step Eight
Press the Home button to return to your Springboard.

Step Nine
Hold the Sleep/Wake button for 3 seconds to bring up the Power slider. Move the slider to the right to power off your iPhone. Now press the Sleep/Wake button again to reboot your iPhone.

Step Ten
Once your iPhone has rebooted the /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppSupport.framework/PhoneNumberTemplates.plist will modified to include support for the extra countries!

THANKS: Thanks to Frank8 and iSpazio for their work on this. To request your country included use the Package's More Info button in Cydia.

I have been told how to fix the caller id problem for 3.1.2 as ispazio caller id fix in cydia does not seem to work any more, I hope you will allow me to show this You can download the .deb file here Then follow the instructions and it will work just fine 1.Create a folder on your computer named Cydia and, inside that, one named AutoInstall (mind the capital I). Put the .deb file(s) in AutoInstall. 2. With the tool of your choice, (ssh,ifunbox) navigate to /var/root/Media/ on your iPhone and put the Cydia folder there (with all its contents). Or if /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall/ already exists, just drop the .deb files in there. 3. Turn your phone off and on again. Hope this helps all those like me.
