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...

How to block text messages


You can block text messages from a specific number or contact on your Android device with a third-party solution. Just follow these steps.


Blocking Text Messages

Option 1

Note: These steps are for the stock “Messaging” app included with Android 5. Some carriers may include a different app for messaging.

Open “Messaging“.
Press the “Menu” Menu icon icon located at the upper-right corner.
Select “Blacklist“.
Set “Blacklist” to “On“, then select the plus (+) to add a person to block.
Type the number you wsih to block. Check “Block incoming calls” and/or “Block incoming messages” as desired, then select “OK“.
If you wish to remove a number from Blacklist, select the number, then choose “Delete“.
Option 2

If your messaging app does not offer a Blacklist option, use Handcent.

Download and install Handcent SMS for your text messaging needs. It’s available in the Google Play store.
Since you’ll be using Handcent for text messaging, disable the notifications for your current text messaging app. Otherwise, you’ll get double notifications for text messages.
Open Handcent then select the “Menu” Android menu button icon at the upper left corner of the screen, then select the gear in the lower left corner of the screen.
Select “Security & privacy” > “Manage blacklist“.
Tap the plus (+) icon to add the phone number you wish to block. You can choose one from your contacts, call logs, or input the number directly.


Now all of the text messages from that person will be blocked and not visible in the Handcent app. You won’t get notifications you’ve received a message from the person either. If you ever want to unblock the person, return to the “Manage blacklist” screen, tap it, then select “Unblacklist“.

Some users have reported that the app “Private Space” works well for them.

Sending an Automatic Reply

If you want to let a person know they have been blocked, you will need to download and install SwiftReply. SwiftReply will allow you to setup an auto reply for specific Contacts.

Ensure the mobile number you wish to block is listed in your Contacts.
Open “SwiftReply” and tap the plus icon (+) to make a new auto-reply.
Type the name you would like to use for the reply and the text you would like to send to the person.
Scroll down and select “Enable User Filter” > “Contacts“.
Tap “Add” and choose the people in your Contacts list that you would like to receive the reply. Tap “Done” when your list is complete.
Tap “Save“, then tap “Off” to turn the auto-reply on.
The specified people will now receive your message automatically and Handcent will block them from your view.

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..
Hope it'll be helpful to you.

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).

Can't receive/make calls and text on i68/i9


First remark: This phone is not 3G compatible !!! the name is i9+ 3G but it's only the name !!! Second: Go to settings , Dual SIM settings , and check that you're not in 'flight mode' (that's when the 2 X appear top left) and change it to either one of the 3 other options (Dual sim open, only sim1 open, only sim2 open). Third: The name will appear when the person is in your address book.

I have a CECT i9 and sms messages only show phone #, no name


I realized that my contacts in my phone book did not have a 1 before the area code and number, so I went through my phone book and change all the numbers to 1-253-XXX-XXXX, and now they show up on my text messages.
