Hi, when I send a text message to someone in my contacts, they receive the message and reply to me but I then receive a message from a +44 phone number.

It is the same number that I messaged but it doesn’t recognise the number. I therefore have to save two contact numbers for the same person one being 0770 and the other being +44770. Please help because it’s really frustrating

If you have dialling assist turned on in settings your phone will default to the +44 format.

You can either just save and use numbers in the +44 format or turn off dial assist.
