check the phone book entries...possible the names are appearing twice in the phonebook...or the format in which nos are saved could be diff from the format of numbers u get message ...eg : u might have stores only no and when u recieve msg it might come with a 0 or country code too
This happens when two or more similar (saving one number with different names) contacts is saved on your phonebook, i.e. if you've saved my number on the sim card with a name and at the same time you have my number (same number) on your phone's memory, the caller id will not be displayed, you'll only see the "Incoming Call" or "Call". So I would suggest you to please check the phonebook and delete (keep only one per number) if there are multiple similar contacts saved on your phonebook.
You can also reset the phone to Factory default, in case there's no problem with your phonebook/contacts.
that is controlled by the bottom right soft key on the screen when it is open,sometimes i have seen where it is a ppl error while opening the screen you accidentally hit that button,you can go into the setup on your phone and change what the keys do.
In my many years of using Nokia phones, I noticed that when there are duplicate entries on both SIM card and Phone memory, the names will not appear when they send you messages. You may try to check your phone and sim memory if the numbers are stored on both and delete the duplicate or choose just one memory to use, whether it be the SIM or phone memory to avoid conflicts.
you must copy a phone number to the phone from the sim card once you have a number stored in the phone memory select your phone book scroll to the number select options scroll down to add to voice dial select it you should get a screen that says say a name when your done just select save
If you are lucky enough to have a GSM phone, the easiest way to do this is to store all your phone numbers on your SIM card, (which will not store voice) and keep the phone memory empty and free of the "voice in phonebook".
You will also have the benefit of easily transferring your phone book to another phone in the future since the "phonebook" is on the SIM.
Here is a link to the site containing a pdf manual link and this is an excerpt for you :
Long Distance calls and Area Code Setting/Cancellation
While the present Caller ID information is displayed, pressing */tone/< will place
or remove the prefix "1" in the display to set the call for a long distance call, or
pressing #/> will set or cancel an area code (see page 30).
Storing Caller ID messages in the Phonebook
Messages shown in the Caller ID list can be stored in the phonebook. The phone
number and name of the party on the Caller ID list can be stored in memory.
1) When the phone is in standby mode, select the Caller ID message to be stored.
Then press the STORE soft key on the base or the EDIT soft key on the handset.
From the handset, then select E D I T ?. S t o r e / E d i t N a m e appears. If the Caller ID
message is already stored in memory, you will hear a beep and T h i s d a t a i s
a l r e a d y s t o r e d ! ! appears. The number will not be stored.
2) To complete the setting, follow the steps 3-8 in "Phonebook (Storing Phone
Numbers, Names, Distinctive Rings, and Speed Dial)" on pages 42-43.
