Why do incoming calls on my samsung galaxy pocket come up as unknown?


If you imported all your sim contacts &google contacts the phone might now hav some numbers duplicated or even tripled and then does not know which name to display when you receive a call from a number listed on multiple accounts. Go to your contacts & check all the boxes to display all possible contacts you hav- sim, google, phone, sd card, etc. Go through the list &try to take out all the numbers listed under more than one contact name! Even if it is the same name! It takes some time to sort out if you hav a lot of contacts, but that fixed my problem! Good luck!

I am using a Nokia C5-00 phone that I got yesterday. Seems like it has the latest software version. But for some reason, it doesnt display the contact name during an incoming call or while listing missed...


This is a very common issue with nokia phones. It occurs mainly when you have stored a particular number with more than one name.
For example if you have a number stored to your sim using one name and you have it stored to your phone memory with another name. In most cases, when you install a new SIM card to a nokia phone, it might copy the contacts from the SIM memory to the phone memory automatically and add some extra information or edit the name automatically. This can cause a conflict between which name the phone should display when any action associated with the number is to be performed. In this case, it displays just the number.
To solve this problem without having to delete any contact, all you need to do is to go to your contact settings and then select which memory should be the default display memory.
Hope this helps you? Please comment for more information and thank you for using FixYa.

ALL MY INCOMING CALLS SHOWS UNKNOWN


Possibly you have no contacts save or stored on your phone. Pleas copy contacts from your sim by Go to Contacts. Press the Menu Button ( which acts like right-click ) Select Sim Phone Book. This will list out all the sim contacts.Click the menu button. Select Copy to all contacts After those steps try to ask someone to call you to see if the incoming calls are named.
Hope this helps. Thank you for Using Fixya

Could not get the calls in my phone


Dear Madhavi

1) Problem in incoming call will be issue of network error, check with the operator service provider or try typing *#3370# for increase network receptionn but it will drain ur mobile charging

2) contact not displaying will be occur due to low memory problem but continue with restarting & keep backup of ur cause it will be helpful incase if they have not retrived by restart

3) You have duplicate entry saved in phone & also in sim card in that case phone dont shows name & shows only no. So please delete & try to keep contact only in sim or phone memory

Hopes above solution will be helpfull

Please revert ur comment or rate above solution

Ah ha - the prob above has everything to do with phone memory. Once the full contacts from the sim card are transfered to the phone memory the phone history and sms can read the contact name. However, the phone does not automatically sense when a loaded number does not have the +61 country code attached to it, so every single phone number in the contacts needs to have this added so that incoming sms and calls are correctly identified. An interesting experience.

Caller id


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).
