Re: Nokia 7373 problems with name directory

First i want to tell you that there are two ways to store your name + number entries on the mobile phone 1 Sim memory 2 Phone memory in your case the number must be in phone memory you may be previously entered and i like you also have some memory patch on your phone these often cause such problems Solution note all you entries on a note book and delete all the contract and then reenter them again .. or else try format you mobile phone which is a bit annoying thing

If you have phone numbers stored on the SIM card, copy them to Contacts. Entries that are saved ONLY on the SIM card are not shown in the contacts directory. So for incoming calls and msgs, the phone cannot match the number to the name.
To copy individual names and numbers from a SIM card to your phone contacts:
Menu/Contacts/Options/SIM contacts/Sim directory. Select the names you want to copy and: Options/Copy to contacts.

Nokia 6233

The problem is most likely because on your previous phone the names and numbers were stored on the phone memory and the sim card memory. Before removing your sim card from the old phone, you first need to copy all names and numbers from the phone memory to the sim memory and then when you transfer the sim card to the new phone you should have all the names and numbers as before. Just beware of a few potential problems. First, sim memory only generally allows entries of 14 characters and secondly there is often a limit to the overall capacity of names/numbers to 250 or maybe 300. So if you have a huge directory, you will in effect need to copy the data in blocks of say 250 entries from one phone memory to the other using the sim card as a portable memory device or else try a phone shop like Carphone Warehouse who might just do the whole job for you.

Text messages

They stay on your phone but you will have to delete some eventually, otherwise your phone memory will be too full to operate.

Transfer Text Messages

The only way to transfer messages from one Nokia to the other is sending the messages from one phone to the other. OR If the messages are stored on your SIM-card they're automatically transferred. I haven't found a single solution otherwise.
