Question about Nokia 6230

2 Answers

Don't know who people are

Just had this phone and put in all my contacts. Majority are fine and when they text me their name and no. comes up except for two people and when the text me it comes up as the 1st line of what they are saying. Luckily I am pretty sure who it is BUT on one occasion thought it was someone else as I don't know their phone nos. well enough to readily recognise. I have tried deleting their details and then putting back in but nothing seems to work. Any ideas please?

Re: don't know who people are

I had the same prob and i found it was because i had the contacts stored in the phone mem and sim. I change the setting to just look at the phone mem (Contact / Settings / Memory in use)

My chocolate verizon phone says who is texting me. When I receive a message. How do I get it to stop ?

it runs off your contact list if a name and number are linked as a contact the phone automatically list that name in place of the number for all calls and text coming to the phone go change the names in your contact list to bogue names best bet to correct it

SMS - Recieve number instead of Name

When it comes through it usually comes with the area code and number correct? that is the way you have to save it. Look at the number and if it has the 1+ area code+ number that is the way the phone rconises it and that is the way it needs to be saved. I always save mine to phone instead of the sim since it gives you more options in the phonebook.

When on web & changing abc to numbers for passwords cant do but is fine for texts

Hello , As far as I know and as correct as I am maybe this is a simple problem that you can resolve by pressing the num lock key which is situated on the right of a qwerty keyboard that is the keyboard that the majority of people are using and then make a try with your password abc123..

Phone shuts down and restarts when typing text

Hmm, never heard this type of problem with V3. 1) Turn it off and disconnect everything and remove the battery. Leave it off for about 5 second. Put back the battery and power it back on and see if it still does the same. 2) If #1 doesn't work, try your best to backup all your data on the phone like contacts, etc that you want to keep. Then take it to your provider store (Cingular, Verizon, T-mobile, etc) and show them the problem. There might be a glitch in the firmware. But your provider should be able to troubleshoot it easily. You might lose all your phone information which was why it's best to back them up first.
