BB Bold :: 9900 Calls / Names In Contact List Not Showing
Jan 12, 2012
i got a new Blackberry Bold 9900 from Wind Mobile. It comes with call displays but whenever someone calls me and I have their number saved into my contact list their name wont show up. So I don't know who is calling me even though I have their number saved into my phone. Sometimes it shows up and sometime it doesn't (same people). I tried adding +1 or removing +1 infront of the number but that does nothing.
I have 2 contact lists on my 9900. Both with the same name, one will all my contacts in and one with only 36 in. I want to remove the small one as that is the one synching with Outlook, not the big one.
I bought a new iphone this weekend and am still learning how to work it.However, this morning when I wanted to send a text,my contact list was empty....nothing.how I can retrieve or how it may have been deleted....so that I don't do it again?
I'm using a Sony Xperia 3. In my contact list there is no names with english letters, i'm using only russian letters, because i speak russian. But on the right part of the window in the contact list located a fast search with russian and english letters. It would be convenient if there were only those letters on which names in my address book begin.
When someone calls me the call display shows their number and their "registered" name example: I have Kati McGee saved in my contacts with her number, but when she calls it is Katherin McGee and her number, never my saved name. When i get the message that i missed a call it comes from my contacts, as well as text messages.
How do I make it show what is entered in my phone book? I have tried anything I can find to try, with no luck.
I have had the Curve 8530 for about a week, and I noticed today that the majority of my contact list has disappeared. I started with almost 250 names, now I have about 25. Everything from A-D is gone, and about 75% of everything after that, just random names deleted. Also, when I pull up the contact list, I have to scroll down through a bunch of empty lines before I can see the numbers that are left, like all the deleted contacts are still there, just hidden. But if I search for names that aren't showing up, it doesn't find anything. I've tried a battery pull, and all that happened was the empty spaces in the list disappeared. I really don't want to have to reload my contacts every few days.
Does anyone have the issue of when someone calls you and there # is in your phone book but it doesn't show there name when they call.it only shows there number? I don't know how to get rid of it....if I even can.
I am having a problem where most of my contact names will not display when I receive a call or text message, just their number. This happened all of the sudden and, as it seems to me, randomly.
I have disabled all content protection, tried changing the smart dialing settings, cleared the event log, tried reordering the contact list and did a few battery pulls.
Some of the contact names are still working correctly, but it is a select few and I cannot figure out why only those ones are showing. I have not installed any new software recently or changed any settings other than to try and fix this issue.
Blackberry Storm 9530 OS: 22.214.171.1248 I also have the Google sync and Facebook apps linked to my contacts.
When I do write an SMS to someone I clearly see her name but I get the reply on another thread with the phone number instead of hear name so 2 problem here, why another thread and why the phone number rather the name. Same thing when someone send me an SMS I do receive it as a number rather then the name and when I do reply it creates a new thread with the name of the person.
Nokia 5030 don't show names of all calling/sms writing people- saved in adress book. Some people numbers saved in adress book when calling to me I see, their name, but most of saved names and numbers in adress/sim book, don't show name, only number, like they aren't saved in phone book. The same thing is with sms receiving. Phone is 10 days old.
Many names in the address book not showing up. Hence, when I get a call or make one, the name doesn't come up with the number. After the call, the number with the name is visible in call log as outgoing or incoming or missed. In the database details it shows my address book having 238 numbers (these are the numbers currently visible). So how is it that the names are visible in the log and not in the address book and also not visible during a call.
Every cell I've had until now shows the contacts name as long as they are in the phones contact list. I'm using a Storm 2 9550 and I've been rooting through the settings trying to see if there's a way to show a contacts name but I'm not having much luck.
For the last few weeks I will save a new contact and then when I go to my contact list, they are not there. But if I hand type their number in the keypad, it will pop up. Why are they not automatically showing anymore? Then a few days ago, I was messing with the settings to try to fix this and I quadrupled my contacts. Every email address I ever sent to popped into my contacts. How do I get rid of those?
Just downloaded/installed the update for my 9900 via OTA (126.96.36.1995) and when I went through my contact list, I noticed that at least half of them don't have pictures. (which are linked through FB) This was also the case for my BBM contacts. Would this be a glitch after the installation completed?
I cannot make phones calls from my contact list. When I try to do so it will tell me the number cannot be completed as dialed. I can manually type in the number and the contact name will come up. The call will go through then. However, even after a completed call, I cannot hit redial and complete the call again. I have to manually type it in each time. Is there a way to correct this?
The s6 " do not disturb" feature only mute instead of blocking (rejecting the call) while the "call rejection" feature blocks only unknown numbers and by unknown it means only the hidden calls (when no number is shown).
Did i miss any feature which can block any number which is not in my contact list? If there is no more such a feature as s3, any recommended app for S6?
My Bold 9700 is not recognising the contact name for SMS messages properly. But it is a different problem to what others have described. When I receive a message, it shows the contact's name correctly (which was the problem others had I think).But then if I turn off the bb and remove the battery, then replace it and turn the phone back on, none of the SMS messages have the proper contact names - it just shows either their phone number, or their name if I have them stored on my SIM. What's more, this problem only occurs if the contact's phone number is stored with spaces and brackets in it [ie, +64 (21) xxx xxx].
I realise I could go through and add everyone to my SIM card or remove the brackets and spaces from contacts' phone numbers but a) this wasn't a problem before (on 8310 and 8520) so should be able to be fixed b) my SIM card wont fit all my contacts anyway c) phone numbers are hard to read without spaces and brackets d) it's such a waste of time! My software version is 188.8.131.524 (which is actually later than what I can download!)
