Up to ICS the two numbers:

+43 1 123456
0043 1 123456

were recognized as the same number. Now the user has to change all numbers in the adress book using the + instead of 00

If a user stored the number as 0043 1 123456 the contact information is not displayed if the number calls (as it is sent in the +43 1 123456 format) .i.e the incoming call is treated like a unknown contact.

Same here.
Also if you don't specify the country code (which wasn't a problem in 2.3.6) and a contact calls you, the contacts information is not found, 

+32 123 123456
0123 123456

Are the same number, but under ICS they are treated as different numbers.

After this annoyed me for a while (and I didn't want to remove and add my account) I made an Android application that saves all of the numbers on your phone in the right format, you can get it here

@At My post above, I had a mistake last night that made the app do nothing, fixed it and updated the APK (and the source at github), tested it on another phone and it works

I tried your app but nothing appears to change  in contacts,  do you have another link to try? 
Thanks Phil
