Re: contacts names not showing when reciving text.
My operator said it could be due to having two or more same phone numbers saved under different names.
However, mine wasn't a case of having same numbers under a different name. But after a few days it became fine. The problem resolved by itself even though I didn't specifically do anything to correct it.
Well, I guess this is a common problem with smartphones. It happened to my Dad's N70 and my friend's Ozone too. Don't worry too much about it.

Are you sending to someone who would have you in their contact list. If not, then likely the phone has no way to know it is you texting. Typically texts are sent as phone number and the receiving phone checks it's contact list to see if it matches anyone and then substitutes the name for the number automatically.
this may happn in two cases:
1) when contact is not saved in memory
2) contact is saved twice means
contace saved in phone memory as well as sim memory
so delete contact from both and sav that in any one memory either in sim memory or in phone memry :D
try entering the (+) plus sign and the country code then the mobile number / editing the numbers of your contacts. such as, a mobile number alone (depending on the sim) that reads as 09178943874 must be edited as +639178943874 (noting that +63 is the country code).
Go into a new text message and hit the "send to" option.Scroll down to the first name above the line and hit the "options" button.Scroll down and select "Recent messages" and choose whoever from that list that you'd like to be your top 3.I actually just sent all three of mine a blank text, but when I went back to the "send to" list voila!MORE INFO:I tried all kinds of things to remove names from my top three recipients list.What ended up working was to send a text to multiple recipients at once.Two was enough. But it was important who I selected first. I sent a message to my wife and my friend.My wife's name got added back to my top three! Then I reversed and sent a message to my friend and to my wife. His name got added back!
