There might be a bug in the software . Backup all of your phone memory . and Contacts and messages etc. Then reset the phone by typing *#7370# .... default code is 12345. the phone will restart . Restore the backup taken and check.

I have a nokia n95-1. I have copied sim contacts to the phone which have duplicated when I synchronised with Outlook. I can cope with that. What I dont understand is why the numbers of any of my contacts...


When you receive a phone call, the phone will look up in it's address book to see if it can find a match for that number, if there is only one match, great, it will display it, if there is more than one match, it would be difficult for the phone to 'guess' at who is calling, so instead it just displays the number.

First make sure you do not have duplicate Entries for the same number.
I would suggest you to do the following:
  1. Make sure you have copied all the contacts from your SIM to Phone
  2. Delete all the Entries from your SIM by selecting them at once
  3. Make sure you do not have any Duplicate Entry in the phone book
  4. If you suspect having duplicate entries, Sync. the phone with Outlook and search for Duplicate entries to delete them

Please make sure you have selected the default memory as SIM and Phone. If you have stored your contacts in the Address book of your Phone memory and selected the Sim card memory as the default phone book it is obvious that when receiving a call your phone will try to look for that number in the default memory selected by you or vise-versa.
Go to phonebook > Settings > and select the memory in use as Phone and SIM

Hope it is not confusing

Please get back for any clarification

Is there any way to make the persons name appear for a text


It should be as simple as adding their name and number to the address book on the phone.

Make sure to list the number under the Mobile Phone line.

While in the address book, there is usually a line that says "New Entry" or "Add number" etc...(without the type of phone I cant get specific).

Another method is to into the text message itself and do an options click (again without the phone cant be specific) and there should be an option to add the number to the address book.

Lost sim card cant get my pin bk becuz sumone one change my pin number


The only way to get a lost pin number is by calling the phone company.

Put phone company name on google and give them a call, they are the only ones who can unlock the SIM card.

The only other way out is by replacing the Sim card, but that will also change phone number.

Trouble with contacts


Was your Sim card copied to the address book?

You may have to fix the entries copied from the sim card into the address book so that the cell phone number is in the correct field as well as the names. By default it may not be properly stored into the correct fields.
