How do I add my name to the number associated with the phone?

There should be an icon you can touch that will bring up a menu with "Edit." On my Moto G, it's three square dots stacked vertically in the upper right corner of the screen when I'm viewing my own contact info. Once you are in "Edit" mode, you should be able to add your name and other info as you wish.

I have samsung cell phone and i receive a particular call as unknown( unknown appears on phone screen litterly) an d for others call, its showing either the number or name if added in the list. what i do...

hi my friend
when you press the down key in the left side of the phone for 2 seconds , it makes a fake call for you , it is a trick to call a fake call with yourself to run away from a boring place or person :D and when you press that key , the name of caller shown as "unknown"

good luck ;)

Possibly you have no contacts save or stored on your phone. Pleas copy contacts from your sim by Go to Contacts. Press the Menu Button ( which acts like right-click ) Select Sim Phone Book. This will list out all the sim contacts.Click the menu button. Select Copy to all contacts After those steps try to ask someone to call you to see if the incoming calls are named.
Hope this helps. Thank you for Using Fixya

In samsung corby sometimes am getting call from unknown number. There is no contact in the name of unknown.Still i am receiving as 'Unknown'

Always happens. If there is no saved contact number there will show the number with 'Unknown' name. If you want to save the number with any name, then you might do that and after that if that number calls, it'll show the saved number.

Sometimes there are some incoming call that indicates only 'Unknown' with no number at all or '0000000000' that means callers have chose to hide ID or that is a VOIP call. Many operator permits to hide ID but not all.

Even though my contacts are saved to my sim and in my phone book, when someone calls me from my phone book, their name does not come up?

If two contacts in a same name are available in your phone the particular name will not display.Phone contact and sim contact are unable to use symaltanously. So, the best way if you want to display contact name is delete one contact which is in the sim/phone.1000% Ok.

Callers' name doesn't show even though i have them in my contacts


Solution 1

Some caller's names does not appear even though they are on your contact list because you have then copied twice on your phone. What you'll need do it to delete one contact each for the caller id's that don't show when they call in. Once you get this done, your phone phone would begin to show contacts on your phone.

If you want to know if this true, then get someone around you and save his/her name twice then ask him/her to call you. You'll notice that the caller id would not appear, but once you get one of the contacts deleted and ask him/her to call you back, you'll discover that the caller's id would begin to show.

Solution 2

For your access point, just define it the next time you switch on your phone and save it. Then it would not have to change the next time you turn your phone on/off.

Solution 3

To get rid of the welcome go to Menu > Tools > Settings > General > Personalization >

You can set it from here.

Hope this helped.
