Incoming callers names dont show up..


Check and see if your contacts have the country code added to the front of their mobile numbers.

E.g Samoa (00685) mobile number or (+685)
NZVF (0064) 21XXXXXXXX not 021XXXXXXXXXX

Keep me updated with your progress.

SMS - Recieve number instead of Name


When it comes through it usually comes with the area code and number correct? that is the way you have to save it. Look at the number and if it has the 1+ area code+ number that is the way the phone rconises it and that is the way it needs to be saved. I always save mine to phone instead of the sim since it gives you more options in the phonebook.

When i receive messages on my i9 the number appears not name


I have the phone and have had the same problem. I found I have to add the "1" before the area code to all the saved contacts or at least the ones you use most and that should fix it... when the text message is received it has the "1" normally we don't save the number that way...
