There are 2 reasons why a Nokia cell does this.
1. If the same no. is entered in the handset twice or more than once whether it is under the same name or different names does not matter.
2. The other reason is that it will show a name if it is using "First Name". "Last Name", "Company" fields. Please check both.
Fix: You should use the fields mentioned to list down names, this way the no. will show up when you call them or they calls you. Also remove duplicates!

My nokia C5 is only displaying contact number instead of the contact names. Why?


This problem has been seen when there are two numbers saved with the same name or there are two names saved with two different numbers so it makes your phone confused to show the name of number from which you have got message or call. I suggest you to check that is there any duplicate entries. I was having the same issue on my phone when there was a number saved with the two different names so my phone was just showing only number. Also you might have duplicate contacts for that number.

My Nokia e63 does not show names of my contacts when they call me on my phone. it only shows their number even though i have saved their contact details in my phone.Same problems are with messages


Probably you have multiple names on the same number in your contacts due to storing contact number more than once, truncation, etc. Use Search Tool facility in Office, search contacts using the number you have problem with. If it found multiple names, choose one you like and delete all the others.

How to make caller names show when contacts are in with name and number


Make sure your contacts are saved to the handset not the sim
this is because nokia handset only read the name and number from the handset when you get a call
so copy your contacts to the handset and this should work

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).

Access to phone book


you assign the number into 2 or more different person/contact. try to delete the contact name and then dial the number to show which other contact that number is assigned to.
