Question about Nokia N95 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

I have a nokia n95-1. I have copied sim contacts to the phone which have duplicated when I synchronised with Outlook. I can cope with that. What I dont understand is why the numbers of any of my contacts appear when they call rather than the name under which they are stored? Like most people I dont recognise most numbers and rely on the caller name appearing to see who's ringing. Any suggestions (I guess I'm doing something really basic wrong)? Thanks.

When you receive a phone call, the phone will look up in it's address book to see if it can find a match for that number, if there is only one match, great, it will display it, if there is more than one match, it would be difficult for the phone to 'guess' at who is calling, so instead it just displays the number.

First make sure you do not have duplicate Entries for the same number.
I would suggest you to do the following:

  1. Make sure you have copied all the contacts from your SIM to Phone
  2. Delete all the Entries from your SIM by selecting them at once
  3. Make sure you do not have any Duplicate Entry in the phone book
  4. If you suspect having duplicate entries, Sync. the phone with Outlook and search for Duplicate entries to delete them

Please make sure you have selected the default memory as SIM and Phone. If you have stored your contacts in the Address book of your Phone memory and selected the Sim card memory as the default phone book it is obvious that when receiving a call your phone will try to look for that number in the default memory selected by you or vise-versa.
Go to phonebook > Settings > and select the memory in use as Phone and SIM

Hope it is not confusing

Please get back for any clarification

Thank you for using Fixya

After charging W350i not recognising SIM says, 'Insert SIM Card'. But the same SIM card is operative in other mobile. How can retrieve Phone contacts? Please help.


make sure if sim reader is not pin damaged or water damaged? if problem persist i think you can connect your device without simcard and copy all data to your pc, then give some repairer to check maybe need to flash (if flash you will lose your data).
or try to put your mobile without battery 2 days and then switch on to see may be this problem solves.with S.E. this problem a normal.

My contacts won't show on my Nokia C3 phone. what am I gonna do with this?


Hi,

If you are using outlook sync then you may need to check the compatibility of your phone whether it supports outlook. If you have the contacts on another phone , simple go to the contact settings copy the contacts to your sim card , insert the sim card to your nokia phone go to the settings and copy contacts from sim to phone. Make sure to change the contact display view to Phone if you have copied the contacts.

I want to copy my sim contacts on my apple i phone 3 g, but am unable to do so... i went to setting from their i imported the sim contacts but that is also not functioning.. it imports but in contacts...


Hi there,
This type of errors occur when you jailbreak your set, if you want to copy your contacts from the sim try with another Sim in your phone, if it gives error with all Sims, then you can copy your contacts in the Outlook and then synchronize your contacts with iPhone,
To copy your contacts to outlook, take any nokia phone capable of connecting with usb to computer and nokia pc suite, make your contacts syncronize with outlook firstly from nokia,
when you got your contacts in outlook , connect your iphone 3g with computer, and itunes will show you your set, then go to info and sync contacts with outlook, click on apply and then sync, all of your contacts will be sync and you will see the contacts in iphone,
If you require more assistance regarding this, feel free to reply to this post
Regards, BA

Moving contacts from outlook to a mobile phone


1. Go to Outlook and save your 957 contacts in an outlook file. 2. Delete the 507 contacts you don't want to synchronize to your phone and save your outlook under a different file name (e.g. Addr450). 3. Connect the phone to the PC. 4. Open Nokia PC Sync. 5. In the Nokia PC Sync dialog, click Synchronise Now. The Create Settings wizard opens. 6. On the first page of the wizard, select the PIM application you want to synchronise the phone with from the drop-down list. You can choose Outlook Express, Outlook 2000, outlook 2002 or Outlook 2003 as your PIM. Follow the instructions on screen to finish the wizard process. HTH.
