Let me give you an eg:

i stored an number 984802338 in my mobile with name jhon in my sim, when he calls me up it doesnt show the name.

It is because when he calls me, i observe the number it starts with +919848022338 so it is quite different from the number(9848022338)  you stored in the sim so you caller id doesnt show his name and shows as new user.

so 9848022338 is quite different from +919848022338(here +91 is country code)

CECT KA08 Caller ID/Msg ID


Hello, I had the same problem, but i figured out how to get the callers id/information. On the main page select Call Center>>Call History>> SIM1(or whichever you are using)>> and select either the Missed/Dialed/Received calls. Lets choose Dialed Calls for now. Select a phone number that you recognize>>select OK>>Options>>Save to Phonebook. In here you will create a new contact. Make sure you delete this old contact information from your phone book. (so you don't have doubles if already saved to your contact list). Now you can go to your main menu again and select the phone book option. Select the contact you have created and add a photo and ring tone you like. Now when you get a call you get their photo and rign tone. For sms you get only their name, but thats good enough for me.

Sci phone sms caller id not working. Only the


When saving a contact to your phone book for some reason you have to save the number with a "1" in front of the area code and number or it will not register as the contact calling. I would save a number and have them call or send text but it just kept coming up as the number itself and not their name. I changed the number with the 1 in front of it and it worked just fine.

When somebody text me, it shows the number.


Make sure the way the number shows up is the same way you put it into your contacts. (If there is a "+" in front of the number add it to the rest of your contacts)
Then when they text or call, the person's name should show up instead of their number.

Caller ID


Make sure that the number stored in the phone is the same number you get when they call. I had the same problem and i noticed that all incoming call has a 1 in front of it because it is the areacode of US.

Caller id


Save your contacts to the phone. Personalized caller ID only works from the phone, not the sim. Go to contacts then press the contact name once to select it.  Press the menu button (bottom left) on phone and scroll to 'copy to phone'.  You should see the caller name when they ring then.
 (I bought a sim back-up device so that I can keep the sim clear. If caller information is on both the phone and sim it gets listed twice in your contacts).
