Question about Nokia N95 Cellular Phone

Names not displayed on texts

My phone has been working fine for over a year. I have all my numbers saved and names appear when I have a text from them. Now, all of a sudden it only displays the number and not the name of the person it is from - why? How do I fix this?

That means that there is a double entry. the number saved in your address book has eitehr been saved twice or saved twice with different names. Delete the entry in the address book then turn off and on your phone. you should see the name of the other entry now.

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.
