SMS Contact names display instead of numbers please

I have unlocked 1.1.4 with telstra (Australia) and when i receive SMS i only see contacts number and not name. I know this will happen when the sender is not in my contact list, but how do i set it so that when one of my contacts sends me an SMS, i see there name and not just there number? Appreciate in advance. Unlocked using Ziphone and is all working well.


Regards

    Have worked it out. I needed to add the 61 (Country Code) to all the mobile numbers and now it works fine. A small price to know who is sending sms. Thanks anyways,

I got a better solution for you. Its because the iphone is not designed for Australian phone numbers. Mine was the same.

On your installer add the source installer.iclarified.com
Then add a package called appsupport 1.1.4 and voila, your contacts will match up with your sms's and call logs automatically

How can I unlock a Samsung C5220 prepaid phone from Telstra (Australia)?


The best way usually is to contact Telstra Customer Support for an unlock code for your handset model. The Carriers usually seem to oblige if you have been in their network for more than a certain number of days during which their subsidy is usually recovered. If they are unwilling, please consider using a paid and reliable service like http://www.unlock-zone.com/ or http://www.prounlocking.com

Hope this helps.

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.

My blackberry is not resognising incoming messages from freinds whose numbers are stored on my SIM. It will display the mobile number but not the name of the person. eg: if john smith was to send me a SMS,...


Go to your 'contacts' and pull up the menu, select 'SIM Phone Book', select 'Copy All To Contacts'. After this the SMS should be updated with the contact info.

strange enough. Maybe the Qatari network is only GSM 900 MHzor your phone isn't on the supported list. Try remove the battery for 15 min and then turn on your phone. Also check that network search is set to Automatic so is the band selection.

Sci phone sms caller id not working. Only the


When saving a contact to your phone book for some reason you have to save the number with a "1" in front of the area code and number or it will not register as the contact calling. I would save a number and have them call or send text but it just kept coming up as the number itself and not their name. I changed the number with the 1 in front of it and it worked just fine.
