Saved contacts don't appear

When someone calls me or sends me a text message, it comes up with their number instead of their name, even though they are saved in my phone and there are no errors with their number. All my text messages are under numbers not names even though they are all sent from saved contacts. How do i fix this?

    same problem, contact name should be displaying in inbox but all that comes up is there number with the +61 before it. Is there any option that transfers the number back into the contact name.

Its because it's an international phone putting +61 in front of the number will fix this : )

When I send a text message my phone number shows instead of my name!

Are you sending to someone who would have you in their contact list. If not, then likely the phone has no way to know it is you texting. Typically texts are sent as phone number and the receiving phone checks it's contact list to see if it matches anyone and then substitutes the name for the number automatically.

SMS - Recieve number instead of Name

When it comes through it usually comes with the area code and number correct? that is the way you have to save it. Look at the number and if it has the 1+ area code+ number that is the way the phone rconises it and that is the way it needs to be saved. I always save mine to phone instead of the sim since it gives you more options in the phonebook.

When i receive messages on my i9 the number appears not name

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...
