    I have the same problem!! it does not have the name of the contact, just +614 and the rest of their number. It doesn't say how to fix it in the instruction booklet.

    messages in my inbox, their name doesn't show up. it only has +614 and the number. although, if i send a message and actually type in their number (as i know some by heart) in my sent box it shows their name.

For every contact i have i have entered two numbers in the phone book
one is their number as you would expect eg. 04 12 345 678
in their office number slot i have entered the number with 61 in from of it eg.614 12 345 678

that way their name shows in your inbox AND when the call you

61 is the australian code for international dialing. i guess it would be different if you lived somewhere else.

When you recieve a message,
and it comes up with there number not there name
you open the message and go to options; extract data
and then click add to existing contact, find the person
with that same number and overwrite the file and save it.
its the only way i have figured out, but it lets the name show up
in your inbox and when you recieve the call, you only have
to re save the file once. its annoying but its good when most are done :)

I've got my contacts in there twice, once listed as their 61 number, once as their 04 number, it's the only way around and was annoying to set up, but you get used to it

Change your contacts to show +61 and the number without the zero.. this is how numbers show when they come thru so it has to be exactly the same for it to show the name of the person..
Although in saying this i have done it and when a friend calls me the number only comes up with her 0 427 rah rah and it doesnt show their name only hteir number!

My husband and I share a yahoo email but when we send a message, only his name shows up in receiver's inbox. How can we make both our first names show up in receivers' inboxes?

You can't. The display name comes up because your email address in the recipients Contact list with only the name 'Scott Hutch'. If they change the Contact name to Gail and Scott Hutch, that is what you will see. When there is no Contact, you just see the email address.

Hi. How do I get the inbox to display names not numbers on my LG Cookie?

This normally boils down to what memory your phonebook is using.

Press Menu > Contacts > Settings > Contact List Settings > Contacts Location > Handset & SIM

We hope this helps!

Only shows numbers not contacts name

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).

Make yourself a new contact (I used "me"). Scroll down and add your e-mail address and NOTHING else.
Go to Menu: Messaging: New Message: Multimedia: Options: Insert: Graphic (select the photo you want): Send to: Contacts (Me or whatever you used): *note: When you use "Me" as a contact, it may just show "m" on the screen. DO NOT press any other keys. Just send your message to "m", and leave it alone.
