    Hi, I have the same problem. & it's not because their number is on private. Did you ever figure out why? 'Cause it's so annoying not knowing who is calling me.

Heya there. : )

I've got the same phone as you and I've been fiddling with it over the past couple of days. I also noticed when some people rang me, their Number's would come up, rather than their Names if they were in my contacts list.

I tested with my Mum's phone and her name came up when she called me. My name also came up when I called her. Now, our phones are pretty different Her's is a $79 phone, while mines $570. Big difference. So I don't think it's a phone compatibility issue.


I THINK the problem could be the following;

  • - Whoever is calling you, might have THEIR number on private.
I used my mum's phone and hid her number. Turned the phone off and back on to make sure the settings worked. When I called my phone (the Secret) with hers, on my screen it displayed 'Unavailable' where the name/number should have been.
I changed her phone back to display her number and 'Mum' appeared on the Secret's screen, since I have her number in my Contacts list.

Unfortunately, you cannot do much with this, as it's up to the person calling you if they want to display their number or not.

  • - A number is displayed on your phone you don't recognise, but it's a friend.
I'm taking a shot at this, but I figure, if you've got friend's ringing you, then they've Changed their number. So the number you have in your contact list is not the same as the one they're ringing from.

It's happened to me before, where I've thought I've had a friend's most recent number, but it turns out, she's changed it like, 40 times between the last time I called her a now.


If this hasn't helped, don't hesitated to contact me through the site, I'd still love to help you sort out how to get this phone to behave! : 3

Annoying caller.

You have to go through your phone carrier but you can request them to block all calls from the number. You can usually do this online or call their customer service dept. Good luck!

Some calls are coming through as "unknown number" on my LG U990, despite the callers having ID sent selected on their phone.

Some network providers are having trouble with caller id. You need to be sure that friends or callers are not putting code for unknown caller. Automatically You receiving as unknown calls.
Check Your phone on setting caller id click on show.

Phone says "unknown" everytime someone calls

that is how your mobile provider has setup your phone, so you need to call them and have the phone number unblock.
