I've tried setting te country code to the correct one (972), i had to do so in order for me to be able to make calls. but it doesn't solve the incoming SMS problem for me, all senders' numbers still show country code before and so, name from contacts isn't recognized. incoming calls tho, show the 10 digits number.

link2joe: What version did you downgrade to?
I noticed that if you hit the menu button in the SMS chat session, the menu options to call, e-mail, MMS, etc. with the person are there. In other words, if you click on a text message that is just displaying a phone number and click the menu button, the menu options to "Call Joe Smith", MMS Joe Smith", etc. are there. So, the application knows the name of the contact, it just doesn't display it on the message list. Annoying, but that is a quick way to see who is texting you instead of removing the "-" sign from all of your contact numbers.

The issue is that in my version of the software the SMS application does not recognise the sender's number if there is a hyphen or space stored in the sender's number in the contact list.
Taking out the hyphens and spaces from the mobile number in the contact list is a temporary workaround.
Blackberry, this is a bug and you ought fix it so that the SMS application matches the sender's number with numbers in the contact list that have a hyphen or space.
Updated Fix: This issue is discussed in KnowledgeBase item KB20150, and the fix proposed is to upgrade to release 388 of the software.
