iPhone 4S - Phone Number Format Issue with Exchange 2003 Sync

I upgraded from a Verizon iPhone 4 to a 4S. Both phones are iOS5. All of my contact information is synchronized through Exchange 2003. After setting up my new 4S, I quickly noticed that names did not show up in calls and text messages. I looked in my contacts to verify they were in fact present. I noticed that the formatting was changed. For example, instead of (XXX) XXX-XXXX; all the numbers were XXXXXXXXXX. If I changed them back to the correct format, the names would show. I checked my contacts in OWA and they are still showing as the proper format. I deleted my exchange sync from the phone and all the contacts. I then set it up again and synchronized my contacts. The same thing happened, the proper number format is gone and no names are shown for calls or text messages. Any ideas?

Additional Information
If you are using using Verizon as your provider and iPhone displays the ten-digit number instead of the name of the other party, please follow these steps:

Dial *228 from your iPhone.
When prompted, select option 1.
When complete, you will hear a confirmation message.
Force the Contacts, Messages, and Phone applications to close using the following steps:
Ensure that you have recently opened the Contacts, Messages, and Phone applications.
From the Home screen, double-click the Home button to display the recently used apps.
Tap and hold the icon for the Contacts application until a red minus appears.
Tap the red minus to close the app.
Repeat the previous step for the Messages and Phone applications.
Tap the Home screen to return.
Turn iPhone off and then back on.
