Only shows numbers not contacts name

In My fone keeps showing the number of the person texting me dispite the fact i have them saved in my contacts in both international format (+447) and local (07), as nokia suggested, its really annoying, do have any idea how to fix this? i have to search my contacts to find out whos texting me its a pain. also my pc suite only shows mms, so i deleted the mms and it shows no text however i have about 1000 in my phone inbox?

Hi,
Since you have saved the same number twice, it is not displaying the name of the contact. You should only save the contact once (international format preferred).

When reciving text messages the phone number shows up instead of contact name


this may happn in two cases:
1) when contact is not saved in memory
2) contact is saved twice means
contace saved in phone memory as well as sim memory
so delete contact from both and sav that in any one memory either in sim memory or in phone memry :D

Number shows not the person name.


It is possible that you have not saved the number in the name of person whom you are sending message, or you might have saved that number twice in your cell phone, i.e. either in sim card or in mobile phone or both.

There is another way to check this. Try dialing the same number, if it shows the name of the person whom you have saved then its fine. If it shows the number only, then it indicates that you have have his number saved twice.

Try, you will get through this.

Callers' name doesn't show even though i have them in my contacts


Hi,

Solution 1

Some caller's names does not appear even though they are on your contact list because you have then copied twice on your phone. What you'll need do it to delete one contact each for the caller id's that don't show when they call in. Once you get this done, your phone phone would begin to show contacts on your phone.

If you want to know if this true, then get someone around you and save his/her name twice then ask him/her to call you. You'll notice that the caller id would not appear, but once you get one of the contacts deleted and ask him/her to call you back, you'll discover that the caller's id would begin to show.

Solution 2

For your access point, just define it the next time you switch on your phone and save it. Then it would not have to change the next time you turn your phone on/off.

Solution 3


To get rid of the welcome go to Menu > Tools > Settings > General > Personalization >

You can set it from here.

Hope this helped.

Incoming callers names dont show up..


Check and see if your contacts have the country code added to the front of their mobile numbers.

E.g Samoa (00685) mobile number or (+685)
NZVF (0064) 21XXXXXXXX not 021XXXXXXXXXX

Keep me updated with your progress.
