Does anyone know how to change the number format used by iPhone to store phone numbers on the contact list?

The original format puts the first 3 digits of any phone number in parenthesis.

That's not the format we use in Chile for phone numbers, so I was wondering if anybody knew of a third party app that might solve my problem.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know of an app that does that, but I'm curious what format you use? Is it just without the parenthesis?

Change it in Settings >General > International > Region Format and then choose wherever you're from.

It's the U.S. format. For example, an 8 digit cel phone number (in Chile) appears on the contact list like this:

(xxx)xxxxx
