Samsung pixon m8800 fault

Stored messages in inbox are not storing with the name of sender only phone number of sender. names are stored in phonebook though. the only way around this i have found is to deleted all numbers from phone book memory (not sim) then re copy from sim to phone book, this only works for about 3-4 days then returns to same problem. had phone 3-4 weeks and had to do this 4 times.

    I also have the same problem, everytime I reset the names they start coming through as normal but when I turn it off they start coming through with just numbers and not names. Also my incoming messages are being saved on my sim card not my phones memory so I have to keep deleting them as the sim can only hold about 20 messages. T mobile have said to just keep updating the numbers but I think I'll be returning the phone tomorrow after reading these comments. Apparently you have 28 days during which you can return the phone. I would probably suggest that until you can find one that works.

    I have the same problem, have decided that the only thing to do is never switch it off/let the battery run down. Very annoying!!!!!

    I have the same problem and i spoke to T-Mobile this and it is something to do with the settings. T-Mobile told me to take my phone into there shop and they will send the phone off to get the settings updated. This is a known fault with Samsung Pixon. I just wished they told us before purchasing!!!

After reciving 200 sms the full inbox icon is flashing and it is not able to recive more sms untill I delete some !!


Hello,

The capacity of receiving messages messages is not high so you have to delete previous messages before you can receive new messages.

Ensure your messages are loading also on the SIM card in order for it to be able to receive more message.

take care

Names won't display in inbox


Hi!

In my many years of using Nokia phones, I noticed that when there are duplicate entries on both SIM card and Phone memory, the names will not appear when they send you messages. You may try to check your phone and sim memory if the numbers are stored on both and delete the duplicate or choose just one memory to use, whether it be the SIM or phone memory to avoid conflicts.

Happy Holidays!
