If you have an Android phone... the contacts are still there they are just not displayed. they may be hidden.
Settings or Display Settings or Contacts to Display.
(it may be different depending on your phone)
All emails that you have synced with the phone should be displayed. make sure you click each one and check all the boxes including "All Other Contacts"
Hit Save or Done if your phone asks you to.

SOURCE: Contacts Name or Number not appearing when they call

Maybe the conflict or Operator things !
I mean if you have same numbers in your sim card and phone memory at sametime phone can get conflict issues , because phone also got confused what to put on the screen !
F480 itself has an issue with colliding CALLER ID and NAME DISPLAY.As you know, name display shows up when you don't have the incoming call number. However, this device ignore CALLER ID and just show NAME DISPLAY...
SOLUTION:You need to call your operator and disable NAME DISPLAY ONLY.

Best Regards

SOURCE: transfer contacts with an inactive smartchip

Since you say that your computer can read your memory card, you could try puting a sim into your phone temporarily and then backing up your contacts onto your memory ericsson phones do provide you with that option.The procedure is: Phonebook--options--more--advanced--back up to memory card. Hope it helps, Rushil

Im using sony ericsson cedar mobile...for some contacts when receiving call or message only the number is displaying not the name...if i edit the contact means the name will come...after some days when i...

If you have contacts in both memory and card, then I suggest, erase one of them completely (for instance SIM memory). Set the default storage location to the one where you have got the contacts (Memory Card), and see if that works. If you have a backup option available using a USB cable, you can take a back of contacts and other on your PC. If the first one does not work, copy the contacts from Memory card to SIM and delete the contacts from Memory card too. Now check if the contacts appear when someone calls.

How can I transfer my contacts from N97 to Omnia II

One simple soution (though it abridges the full contact data) to move contacts from one phone to another is to copy them to the sim card, swap the sim card over and then copy from Sim to phone. Failing that on most phones you can often 'send all' contacts via bluetooth or infrared.
