Incoming calls doesnt show names just "call"

its either because you don't have caller Id

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.

No number or contact name on incoming call.

Hi, I had the same problem few days back. I am using Nokia N95 with a Vodafone service. Any call I receive simply showed "Call" and on checking the call log, says "No Number". this problem is not with the phone, but with the network. I checked with the Vodafone customer associate, I got to know I din't submit my documents to them which is required on an yearly basis and so my phone had this problem. So if u r also having same problem as I had, try contacting ur network service associates and they could help you fixing the problem.

Outgoing and Incoming Caller ID

I had the same problem. Turn off the phone, take out the battery for 20 or 30 seconds and put it back in. Fixed my phone like a charm.

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?

Make sure you have the incoming number in your address book. If you don't only the incoming number will show up.

It could be a setting in the phone that he may have changed. Look around in the settings to make sure yours is the same as his.

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..
