How to Fix the International Caller ID for an iPhone


In the U.S., all landline and cellular phone numbers have 10 digits, a three-digit area code followed by a seven-digit phone number. In many international locations, however, phone numbers can have fewer or more numbers. When traveling internationally with your iPhone, the international caller ID format will still by default display a 10-digit format. However, by changing your iPhone's region format, you can correct caller ID formatting issues with international numbers.

  • Tap the "Settings" icon from the home screen of your iPhone.

  • Tap the "General" option.

  • Select "International" and select "Region Format."

  • Select the region you will receive calls from. When you select some regions, your iPhone will display sub-regions. If your region has sub-regions, select the appropriate sub-region. You have now fixed the caller ID formatting for international calls from the selected region.
