    I really do NOT like this phone very much at all except the sliding,qwerty keyboard. Other than that I really miss my blackberry.

    Okay, I searched some forums and it found a solution. My contacts all show up now. What you need to do is go into your address book and make sure that your phone numbers are saved in the same manner. I had some that were 1-000-000-0000 and others that were 000-0000. Those were the ones that weren't showing up. I changed them all to just area code and number (no 1s) 000-000-0000 and they are all working just fine. Hope this helps you.

Incoming caller name and number is not showing


Hi, My Nokia 130 phone does not display number for incoming calls. It shows "private number" for all the incoming numbers. I tried moving contacts from SIM to phone, removed duplicate entries. Even restored the factory settings twice. But still it does not help. I will be grateful for any help in this regard.

My nokia C5 is only displaying contact number instead of the contact names. Why?


This problem has been seen when there are two numbers saved with the same name or there are two names saved with two different numbers so it makes your phone confused to show the name of number from which you have got message or call. I suggest you to check that is there any duplicate entries. I was having the same issue on my phone when there was a number saved with the two different names so my phone was just showing only number. Also you might have duplicate contacts for that number.

I have bought Nokia E63 mobile. I have saved all the contacts from my sim card to my mobile, but while receiving the incoming calls the names are not displayed in the mobile and only the mobile numbers are...


The problem here would be duplicate contacts. When a call comes it searches the number in the Phone and SIM and displays the name pointing to that. Here in your case I suppose the same contact with the same number would be entered twice ( SIM + Phone) and phone gets confused which name to display and it shows just the number instead of name.
To solve this what you can try is to disable the SIM contacts from displaying. To do that go to Menu>Contacts>Options>Settings>Contacts> Contacts to display - Select Phone Memory only.
Hope this helps. Good Luck. ~SmokinJoe~

NOT DISPLAYING CONTACT NAME AND NUMBER DURING INCOMING CALLS on nokia 1600, it is showing no number on screen. can you guide me how to resolve this problem?


If there's no software related issue, this must be problem with contacts. When a contact is saved multiple times, this happens. Check the specific number that's displayed only numbers and make sure you have only one saved contact with that number. This is usual when the same contact is saved on both the sim card and on the phone memory. In other words, duplicate contacts. Once one of the contact is deleted, you'll have no more problem.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

When receiving a call my nokia 1661 displays private no even though the number calling is in the contacts list. Any idea what I need to tweak to sort this very annoying problem...?


it is not your handsets issue it is a features where if that particular individual subscribed for his number to be showed as private number to everyone whom he/she is calling. You cannot do anything it will show if that person activated this service and it will not show you the name. ask that person that he/she activated any kind of services for private number.

Only shows numbers not contacts name


Hi,
Since you have saved the same number twice, it is not displaying the name of the contact. You should only save the contact once (international format preferred).
