    So I transferred all my contacts to my phone via Google.

    where i'm from phone numbers are like 346-0434 and this is how numbers are saved on my phone. However when my people call, the caller ID does not show up. Only if I put in the country area code, then the caller id will show. So instead of putting in 346-0434, I have to put in 1-868-346-0434. This will be highly annoying to edit all my contacts.

    I've never seen this on another phone locally. Is there a setting that I'm overlooking?

    in some areas of the USA the are area overlays. meaning that a city has two -OR MORE- area codes.

    example: you and your neighbor live next door to each other in city X in state y. his number is 1-123-456-7890.
    your number is 1-321-456-7890. you would need to dial his area code before the call would go through.
    hence the need to have area code and number for caller id to work properly.

    also, some country codes begin with a different number. north America -USA, Canada and Mexico all have 1 as the country code.
    so a 3 could be some country in Europe.

    as to the editing. sync phone to outlook and edit there.

    This happened to me on a different phone as well for the reason stated above, so I don't think it's limited to the Lumia.
