Contact names do not show when call comes through

The name of the person calling does not show up, only the phone number. How can I change the setting back so that both name and number shows?

Re: Contact names do not show when call comes through

This phone either shows the name or number. Not both. If you have a person listed in the phone book on the sim card AND in the phone's memory, it sometimes confuses the phone and just the number will show up. Only put the number in the sim or phone. Not both.

Incoming calls doesnt show names just "call"

its either because you don't have caller Id
if thats not the case
call your service provider and they will take it from there.

My nokia e 71 does not shows the caller name wat can i do to rectify it ... its really troble some i cant even see who gave missed call to me also..plz help me frnzzz .. i tried both the way above staed...

If you store a a number with more than one name, the next time the number calls u, it will not show any name.
You have to delete the other entries and leave only ONE entry. Then you can see the caller names and missed calls.

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


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)

Keep me updated with your progress.

Who is your service provider and make sure that in your contacts the persons number has the area code with it other wise the number will show with no name.

You have stored the persons name and number in the SIM memory, that is the fault- if you want to see their face and number, then store to phone memory..
