Try checking if the contact is saved on your handset. Does it happen with txt received from contact already stored in the hand set?

My husband and I share a yahoo email but when we send a message, only his name shows up in receiver's inbox. How can we make both our first names show up in receivers' inboxes?


You can't. The display name comes up because your email address in the recipients Contact list with only the name 'Scott Hutch'. If they change the Contact name to Gail and Scott Hutch, that is what you will see. When there is no Contact, you just see the email address.

My Samsung Champ can receive messages from a particular contact but that contact does not receive my messages. I found out that I accidentally blocked this particular contact and also added it to reject...


- Make a back up data of those numbers or you can read them manually.
- Delete those names and numbers from Contact list.
- Input again those name and numbers into your Contact list, you can change their names if necessary.
- See if it will solve your problem.

My chocolate verizon phone says who is texting me. When I receive a message. How do I get it to stop ?


it runs off your contact list if a name and number are linked as a contact the phone automatically list that name in place of the number for all calls and text coming to the phone go change the names in your contact list to bogue names best bet to correct it

When i receive a text the caller number shows up but not the name. How can I fix that


You need to add the number to your contacts and also add the name of the person. Then when a TXT comes in the phone checks the number against the contacts and if it finds a match it displays the name.

The pic only appears when receiving a call from a contact stored on your phone. Provided you linked a pic to that contact. Not when you receive a txt.

Cannot receive and send a txt message.


I had this problem also, make sure your browsre is working since all text messages go through it. I had to program in a new network ,this information should be available to you by contacting your carrier(I have the t-mobile & cingular iformation for this if needed). If browser does work then check message setup(you may have incorrect service center number or gateway entered,also make sure SMS is turned on). To check setup go to message center, select message inbox,select menu, select setup (again you can get the correct info by contacting carrier or I have t-mobile if you would like it)
