Formatting / Removing carrier code from iphone contact numbers

Hello!

I need an Iphone APPZ/TOOL to remove carrier code from all contact phone numbers.

Ex:

Current  format : 0 CC AA NNNN-NNNN

Format Needed : 0 AA NNNN-NNNN


where:

CC = (Carrier Code) AA = (Area Code) NNNN... = (Phone Number).


Can you tell me an APP for batch conversion ?

Best Regards.
Artur

1. Sync your addresses with the address book on your computer;
2. Export the address book to an editable file.  On a mac, you would export everything into a single vcard file;
3. BACK UP THIS FILE, IN CASE YOU MAKE AN ERROR IN THE FOLLOWINGS STEPS;
4. Open the file with text editor (like textwrangler on the mac);
5. Fix it using a search and replace. Without knowing your environment, whether CC is variable, the format of the text file, etc. I can't say what kind of search, or series of searches, would work. I'm confident that it could be done with little effort, however.
6. Purge your address book;
7. Import the edited file;
8. Sync with your phone.

Ok comment is valid... Although looking for an easier automated Mode. I have got a program called "minha operadora" on iTunes store, but it just allow to "Replace" carrier code and  it does not allow empty carrier field. For while, you are worth of the points. Thanks.
