SOURCE: Nokia 6300 Some contact names dont show when receiving texts

try entering the (+) plus sign and the country code then the mobile number / editing the numbers of your contacts. such as, a mobile number alone (depending on the sim) that reads as 09178943874 must be edited as +639178943874 (noting that +63 is the country code).

SOURCE: Nokia N95 8GB. Contact names not showing

There are 2 reasons why a Nokia cell does this.
1. If the same no. is entered in the handset twice or more than once whether it is under the same name or different names does not matter.
2. The other reason is that it will show a name if it is using "First Name". "Last Name", "Company" fields. Please check both.
Fix: You should use the fields mentioned to list down names, this way the no. will show up when you call them or they calls you. Also remove duplicates!

SOURCE: Duplicate contacts on LG KP500

Sometimes, caller ID (the name of the caller) does not appear on a call and is replaced with the phone number.

The main reasons for caller ID not working are:

1. Duplicate entries in contacts - by FAR the most common cause and unfortunately, the most awkward one to fix.

If the phone finds the same number against more than one name, it doesn't know which to use so, perfectly sensibly, it defaults to showing the number.

The only way to fix this is to remove duplicates from your contacts. Best way to do this would probably be in Outlook on the PC, but assuming you can't do that, then you have to find the numbers that aren't working a use the LATEST version of the Nokia Search Tool ( to find the duplicate entries:

NOTE: when you search, use PART of the number to avoid problems with formatting: searching for +441234567890 will NOT find +44 123 456 7890 whereas searching for 789 would.

2. Using your international dial code instead of '+'

Not sure if this applies to all phones, but if you store your number using your county's international dial code (eg: 004412345678990 - WRONG) instead of the '+' sign (+4412345678990 - RIGHT), it can cause problems.

3. "(0)" area code prefixes

Only a problem if you synch with MS Outlook. When you specify a country in MS Outlook, it will insert "(0)" into your phone number after the country code - while somewhere in Redmond, Bill Gates cackles - so +4412345678990 becomes +44 (0) 12345678990.

You need to remove the (0).

4. 9 and 10 digit numbers

There has been one report of problems with 9 and 10 digit numbers where one size doesn't work with SMS and the other with calls. Not sure that anyone else has ever come across this.

My nokia C5 is only displaying contact number instead of the contact names. Why?

This problem has been seen when there are two numbers saved with the same name or there are two names saved with two different numbers so it makes your phone confused to show the name of number from which you have got message or call. I suggest you to check that is there any duplicate entries. I was having the same issue on my phone when there was a number saved with the two different names so my phone was just showing only number. Also you might have duplicate contacts for that number.

Hi, i have a nokia x3 and it won't show the callers name even though they're in my contacts. what do i need to do to rectify this? Thanks!

This could arise as a result of two things.
First thing, if the default contacts are the sim contacts and then there are no contacts stored to the phone memory. You have to set it up to show the sim contacts as the default or phone contact(depending on which memory is having the contacts). Better still, you can copy the contacts from your sim to phone memory.
secondly, since you are sure that it is stored to the phone, and it still doesn't show, it is as a result of storing the contact with two different names. Possibly when you changed the sim into the new phone, it made some changes to the contacts and saved them from your sim to your phone memory. As a result, there are 2 names for one number and the phone cannot pick which to show. The number has to be stored with a particular name both on phone and sim memory.
if you need more information, contact me.

My Nokia e63 does not show names of my contacts when they call me on my phone. it only shows their number even though i have saved their contact details in my phone.Same problems are with messages

Probably you have multiple names on the same number in your contacts due to storing contact number more than once, truncation, etc. Use Search Tool facility in Office, search contacts using the number you have problem with. If it found multiple names, choose one you like and delete all the others.

Contact Name Doesn't Show Up

If only one number is not showing on your screen it means that you have blocked it with your application or messaging system that you'll need to take the number out of the blocking list. But if this doesn't help you the number itself might have a privacy feature that you cannot see the number itself but just showing private number.

How to make caller names show when contacts are in with name and number

Make sure your contacts are saved to the handset not the sim
this is because nokia handset only read the name and number from the handset when you get a call
so copy your contacts to the handset and this should work

Access to phone book

you assign the number into 2 or more different person/contact. try to delete the contact name and then dial the number to show which other contact that number is assigned to.
