Nokia 1600 normally thus have two data storage, 1 from the sim card the other from the phone memory, you might accidenrally duplicated the names and number of your contacts thats why only number shows on the screen.

Go to menu, settings, phone setting, and LOOK for RESTORE FACTORY SETTING, code is 1234 , that the default code for all nokia cellphone

I have a nokia 1600. When I receive a call, having entered my contacts, their number appears on the screen and not the name. I have under settings have my contacts view to name only?

Check the phone numbers saved in the phone. This issue occurs when the number is saved twice in the phone.

Delete the duplicate entry of that #.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Messaging Inbox And Outbox Issue

hi im josh in cebu phils. Friend as a mobile phone technicians we have encountered a lot of this problem. Here are the things to do to solve your problem.
1. Try to check whether you haven't save the same numbers at your phone book because doing a such may cause this problem. Because when two numbers with the same file name are already save will cause the memory to mislead which of the two would be displayed in the screen. remember all the numbers are save in the memory and everytime the number will send a message it will be registered to the memory and thats the time it will react the match number assigned to the filename designated to the number who sent and display the name on the screen. and if there are two numbers saved with same file name the software will discredit or discard the file name to be displayed thats why it appears only a number.
the best thing to do check the number and avoid duplication so that you may keep away such problem.
2. Check the phone setting display number and be sure it is enable to Name or Name and number format.
thats all friend good luck hope i helped you.

Names won't display in inbox


In my many years of using Nokia phones, I noticed that when there are duplicate entries on both SIM card and Phone memory, the names will not appear when they send you messages. You may try to check your phone and sim memory if the numbers are stored on both and delete the duplicate or choose just one memory to use, whether it be the SIM or phone memory to avoid conflicts.

Happy Holidays!
