Question about Nokia N95 Smartphone

Nokia N95 Contacts list has missing/blank lines

When I go to view the list of Contacts on my Nokia N95 some lines are simply blank. In other words, there are some contact names on the list while others have simply disappeared.

I can click on a blank line but clicking on a blank line has no effect.

If I enter the Contacts list via the SMS message editor then the OK button is only shown if the list is filtered to include only non-blank lines.

As a possible solution I added a missing name/number to my Contacts again, but when that person calls me their name does not show up. This normally only happen on Nokia phones for duplicate numbers, which suggests that the number is still in there somewhere.

Other evidence that the "missing" name/number is still held somewhere in the database is that when I enter the abbreviated form of a "missing" name in Sms my handset does not report "Invalid contact details" as it normally does when it cannot find an entry. Instead it just does nothing.

I have also tried to update my address book from backed up copies. But since this problem showed up it has been impossible to sync my contacts to/from another phone, Nokia PC Suite, or Internet-based services like Zyb. So I'm pretty well stuck.

I have seen this problem mentioned on the Nokia Forum without a solution -

Seems odd that even though Nokia are aware of it they don't know what's causing it

Any help would be appreciated.

SOURCE: access to phone book

you assign the number into 2 or more different person/contact. try to delete the contact name and then dial the number to show which other contact that number is assigned to.

Connection problem between a nokia n95 8gb and zumo 550

I have recently purchased a Zumo 550 and successfully copied across selected phone book entries from a Nokia N95 without the need to use any additional apps:-

1) Assuming the N95 and Zumo are paired via BlueTooth
2) In N95 Contacts - use 'Mark' / 'Mark All' as necessary to select the contact entries you wish to transfer to the Zumo 550
3) In N95 Contacts - select 'Options' then 'Send Business Card' then 'Via Bluetooth'
4) Select the Zumo 550 device from the list of paired Bluetooth devices
5) Contact data is transferred from N95 phonebook to Zumo 550 phonebook

Interestingly, Garmin don't seem to list the Nokia N95 as being a supported device on their website, but the above process worked for me!!
