Messages on an American iPhone in Greece?

I recently took my Verizon American iPhone 5s outside the country for the first time and installed a Cosmote sim card on it. Immediately all my contacts on the messages app lost their names and only appear as their American phone numbers, e.g. +1 (xxx) xxx-xxxx. How can I fix this?

All the contacts are still in the Contacts app just fine, so nothing is permanently lost. It's just something about installing the European sim card that mucked up the messages app.
If it matters, I'll be in Greece for a few months, so I'd really like a permanent solution. At the same time, I'll be returning to the States after my time in Greece, and I'd like to be able to go back to my Verizon service smoothly. Any suggestions?
