Question about Samsung SGH-i900 Omnia Unlocked Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Contacts are not reconised in incoming calls

All incoming calls that I receive on Samsung Omnia are shown just as numbers even if they are my contacts on SIM or in phone. The calls are recognised only if they are saved as (XXX) YYY-ZZZ, but all my contacts are saved with international number as 00WWWXXYYYZZZ. And I do not want to change all my contacts. How to salve this problem.

Thanks anyone!!!

Why do incoming calls on my samsung galaxy pocket come up as unknown?


If you imported all your sim contacts &google contacts the phone might now hav some numbers duplicated or even tripled and then does not know which name to display when you receive a call from a number listed on multiple accounts. Go to your contacts & check all the boxes to display all possible contacts you hav- sim, google, phone, sd card, etc. Go through the list &try to take out all the numbers listed under more than one contact name! Even if it is the same name! It takes some time to sort out if you hav a lot of contacts, but that fixed my problem! Good luck!

The name of the caller is not displaied


Why does my Nokia device only show phone number of caller or SMS sender, although they are listed in my contacts? The calling phone number may not match with a contact name and the name is not shown in the following situations when an incoming call or SMS arrives:
  • The contact is defined twice in the Contacts application (e.g. if both Phone memory and SIM memory contacts have been selected to be displayed in Contacts settings and the same contact is found in both of them).
  • The same phone number is defined for two or more contacts.
  • The phone number in Contacts application is in different format than the number received in the incoming call. The phone number may have been stored in local format while the incoming call number is in international format (including country prefix), or vice versa. The number may not be properly matched with a contact name in this situation, depending on the device variant and the length of the calling number. In order to verify the correct format of the contact phone number (local or international), check the number which is shown when the call is received and edit the contact details accordingly.
If the problem persists, make sure your Nokia device is running the latest software. For downloads and assistance, go to your local Nokia website.

All Incoming Calls Show As Private Number


First thing : the person who's calling you have CLIR . Don't put the same number to phone & SIM. Use the phone memory and also save numbers in international format.

How get do I get my incoming phone numbers to be displayed


Most phones will only do what you require if the contacts are stored on the phones memory instead of the SIM memory. This will also prevent you from assigning photos to contacts and one touch speed dials (i.e. press and hold a number to dial a stored number) Try copying all your contacts to the phones memory. If you see duplicate names, go into phone book settings and adjust setting for phone just to look at phones memory and this will stop duplicates being shown. hope that helps?
