I have an HTC Legend (Vodafone Branded), that I am using unlocked in Lebanon.
Mobile phone numbers usually start with 03, and the International Country Code is +961.

When I send a message, it gets sent as 03****** and is stored in one thread. Then, when the same person replies to my message, it arrives as +9613******. The phone is considering them as 2 different phone numbers, and storing the received messages in a different thread.

Is there any solution? Shall I install a non-branded ROM or anything? Is there an app for that?

Btw, I have updated yesterday to 2.05.161.1 OTA, and now in addition to this problem, I have the problem of the SMS showing older messages first.
Handcent SMS doesn't fix the thread problem btw...

No my contacts are stored without the country code. However, I have realized that with some other mobile phone numbers that start with 70 or 71, there is no problem, since when you add the country code (+961), there is no 0 at the beginning to remove...
Ex: 70****** -> +96170****** whereas 03****** -> +9613******

Shall I install another ROM, unbranded or something?

I tried deleting all the threads to see what would happen, problem persists...

Thank you...

Personally, I always attach country codes to phone numbers since it just removes a lot of hassle when moving around and sending numbers across borders to other people. You may want to try it with a few numbers and see what happens.

And yes, quite a few of these forums are quite dead. Which is surprising, since these phones are really new. I guess phones that are more prevalent in Europe aren't really popular with US people.
