Question about AT&T Cell Phones

Open Question

Contacts are no longer visible on my phone. I can start typing a phone number, and the the contact information will show. However, I cannot search for a number. At&T business numbers are there.

The phone is a Kyocera flip phone we purchased at our AT&T store. We took it to that store, and the manager could not figure out how to help.

SOURCE: how to make caller names show when contacts are in with name and number

Make sure your contacts are saved to the handset not the sim
this is because nokia handset only read the name and number from the handset when you get a call
so copy your contacts to the handset and this should work

1) Turn off the phone. 2) Remove the battery. 3) Wait a bit (less than a minute) to let the phone go completely dead. 4) Put the battery back in and turn on the phone.
The numbers you put in before will be correct.  They have not been overwritten in the directory; they just weren't displaying correctly.

SOURCE: Duplicate contacts on LG KP500

Sometimes, caller ID (the name of the caller) does not appear on a call and is replaced with the phone number.

The main reasons for caller ID not working are:

1. Duplicate entries in contacts - by FAR the most common cause and unfortunately, the most awkward one to fix.

If the phone finds the same number against more than one name, it doesn't know which to use so, perfectly sensibly, it defaults to showing the number.

The only way to fix this is to remove duplicates from your contacts. Best way to do this would probably be in Outlook on the PC, but assuming you can't do that, then you have to find the numbers that aren't working a use the LATEST version of the Nokia Search Tool ( to find the duplicate entries:

NOTE: when you search, use PART of the number to avoid problems with formatting: searching for +441234567890 will NOT find +44 123 456 7890 whereas searching for 789 would.

2. Using your international dial code instead of '+'

Not sure if this applies to all phones, but if you store your number using your county's international dial code (eg: 004412345678990 - WRONG) instead of the '+' sign (+4412345678990 - RIGHT), it can cause problems.

3. "(0)" area code prefixes

Only a problem if you synch with MS Outlook. When you specify a country in MS Outlook, it will insert "(0)" into your phone number after the country code - while somewhere in Redmond, Bill Gates cackles - so +4412345678990 becomes +44 (0) 12345678990.

You need to remove the (0).

4. 9 and 10 digit numbers

There has been one report of problems with 9 and 10 digit numbers where one size doesn't work with SMS and the other with calls. Not sure that anyone else has ever come across this.

Can i get stored numbers without having to scroll down the whole list

Depending of the menus you are in you may do one o the following:

1) start typing the name of your contact and as you type it keeps filtering out your contacts and shows does that are relevant base on your search characters.
2) start typing the phone number and in this case too it will filter out the phone numbers based on your search input

Contacts not showing when searching by name

Your contacts are stored under different partitions of CONTACTS DB. That's why when you looking for everywhere (i.e. "all other") you see them.

Hi, i have a nokia x3 and it won't show the callers name even though they're in my contacts. what do i need to do to rectify this? Thanks!

This could arise as a result of two things.
First thing, if the default contacts are the sim contacts and then there are no contacts stored to the phone memory. You have to set it up to show the sim contacts as the default or phone contact(depending on which memory is having the contacts). Better still, you can copy the contacts from your sim to phone memory.
secondly, since you are sure that it is stored to the phone, and it still doesn't show, it is as a result of storing the contact with two different names. Possibly when you changed the sim into the new phone, it made some changes to the contacts and saved them from your sim to your phone memory. As a result, there are 2 names for one number and the phone cannot pick which to show. The number has to be stored with a particular name both on phone and sim memory.
if you need more information, contact me.

My Nokia e63 does not show names of my contacts when they call me on my phone. it only shows their number even though i have saved their contact details in my phone.Same problems are with messages

Probably you have multiple names on the same number in your contacts due to storing contact number more than once, truncation, etc. Use Search Tool facility in Office, search contacts using the number you have problem with. If it found multiple names, choose one you like and delete all the others.

Skypeout on LG shine

Instead of using Skype on your phone you may want to consider downloading Nimbuzz. It works just like Skype - is free to use - and seems to have better results.

It combines all your friends and family from Skype, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, AIM, Google Talk and more.

To get Nimbuzz simply go to this link and type in your phone number and the program will automatically be sent to your phone.

Ok theres two ways to do this, heres 1 way: press menu while you our on the phone display (the button to the right of alt) use the 5 way navigator to move to the right, scroll down to phone display options.

If you wanna dial numbers press the white button to thte left of z and start dialing the numbers.

Version 2: If you dial normally it will dial numbers, if you press th white button to the left of z then type contact name also works.

hopes this help
