My nokia n95 8gb doesnt display some incoming callers names?
When my girlfriend rings me her name doesnt appear on the screen just her number? ive tried assigning a ringtone to her contact details so i can recognise her calling that way and a picture of her but it doesnt play the assigned ringtone or display the picture?? Also does this with my best friends number which is very annoying because they are the 2 people who call me mostly!

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.
Save your contacts to the phone. Personalized caller ID only works from the phone, not the sim. Go to contacts then press the contact name once to select it. Press the menu button (bottom left) on phone and scroll to 'copy to phone'. You should see the caller name when they ring then.
(I bought a sim back-up device so that I can keep the sim clear. If caller information is on both the phone and sim it gets listed twice in your contacts).
