the format is actually something I thought about. Another issue I had was that I was unable to call people if the number was just 07xx and it kept showing Dial Assist and messages from contacts were not showing contact names but were shown as +44 7957 etc. I had to change the format to +44 7957 in order to see contact names again.
I’ll test it with my daughters phone by changing the format.
Will do. I’m getting loads of weird things. I replied to an iMessage earlier. It sent as a text message but to a +32 number! Oddly he got the message though! Only had these issues since moving to Virgin from Three
I wish I could explain this better but I changed my daughters number to 07. When she calls now it doesn’t show her name just her number in the +44 format. Also tested both formats several times. Sometimes it rings normal, other like I’m abroad! Really confusing!

This should fix it
Settings -> mobile data -> SIM Applications -> tap "Roaming" -> tap "Select Mode"
I found "automatic" was selected by default. Tap manual -> then choose National. Now make sure your numbers are set to the correct format. If not change region to anything other than UK (Settings -> General -> Language and Region -> Region) and then change back to UK region

Thanks for the info. I’d already read about the sim application and changed it to Manual and National but it didn’t have any effect. All other regional settings are correct.
with this being an intermittent issue it’s hard to put it down to a setting otherwise you’d expect it to be the same all of the time. Just tested 4 times with another phone, I got the UK ring twice and the abroad one twice! I tested with other format as well, that just brought more issues like no caller name, just the number!
