Can't see addressbook name when i receive a text message

When i receive a text message from somebody in my addressbook, their phone number appears as to who its from, not their name. This is frustrating and I cannot see that there's an option to change it - can you help me fix it?

Thanks.

    Thanks, but no, it didn't work. I do not have double entries at all and there is no double up of a contact. I turned my phone off, then on again, but no change. Will attempt to put a +61 at the beginning of each contact to see if that works (it's an international phone).

    Thanks for trying though - no good.

That means that there is a double entry. the number saved in your address book has eitehr been saved twice or saved twice with different names. Delete the entry in the address book then turn off and on your phone. you should see the name of the other entry now.

May be you have enter or save a person name in same number with different name. Like in your Phone as well as in SIM card too. First of all try to find out the number and then correct yourself by deleting the contact person name and so on..

Blank name/No Message!


Somebody may have sent you a mms message that stalled during download. Your carrier may be able to purge the message off the server, but you likely will have to delete the message as well. If unable, then try resetting it.

Is there any way to make the persons name appear for a text


It should be as simple as adding their name and number to the address book on the phone.

Make sure to list the number under the Mobile Phone line.

While in the address book, there is usually a line that says "New Entry" or "Add number" etc...(without the type of phone I cant get specific).

Another method is to into the text message itself and do an options click (again without the phone cant be specific) and there should be an option to add the number to the address book.

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).

I have the phone and have had the same problem. I found I have to add the "1" before the area code to all the saved contacts or at least the ones you use most and that should fix it... when the text message is received it has the "1" normally we don't save the number that way...
