This usually happens when you have duplicate entries in your phonebook.

Depending on the model of you phone, You can have only the phonebook or sim enabled but not both to avoid duplicate entries. Or it might be that there is really 2 or more Names for the certain number. Just review your phonebook and remove the duplicates. That should solve your problem.

Hope that helps.

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.

When someone calls my nokia 5230 nuron the name doesnt show up just the number


Hi,

there may be 2 reasons for it

1.I hope you stored the caller name and number in your mobile.

If you haven't stored it please store the name and number in your phone and it will show the caller name when he/She calls you.

2.Even though you stored the caller name and number and still you get only the number,Then please check weather the same number is stored twice in different names.If this is the case also the mobile shows only the number when the caller is calling you.

Thank You

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.

Numbers shows only in my inbox ..


Your Phone is experiencing some corrupt data issue with the CPU that handles the phone book database.

TEST THIS STEPS FIRST
put your sim into another phone and try storing the name with the number.
if it works then put another sim entirely on the phone that does not store names and try storing the contact. if the contact does not stores then the problem could be from the phone's database or CPU issues.

Issues like could be solved with this method below

Reformat your Phone (Flash the phone memory) you'll need technical phone operator to do that for you. This usually solves the issue but you'll definitely loose data.

try as nuch as possible to transfer your contact data to your sim card and copy out all important details before you flash your phone memory.

I have a nokia 3120 numbers not being reconized


Delete that particular number which has the problem from your phone book and save the number as and when the person calls or instead save the person's no prefixing the international code '+' and the country code to it. I think that should fix the issue.

Cect i9 caller id does not show names


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)

STORED NAME NOT SHOWING WHEN INCOMING CALL


You have stored the persons name and number in the SIM memory, that is the fault- if you want to see their face and number, then store to phone memory..
