Galaxy S6 :: Phone Adds Multiple Numbers To The Same Contact

Sep 2, 2015

I am facing a bit of an irritating problem on my samsung galaxy s6. When I go to phone -> 1-9 keyboard and use it for the letters (2=a,b,c; 3=d,e,f, etc.), I can easily find the number I need. The problem is that for most of my contacts, when I click them, a second window pops up, asking me exactly which number for this contact I'd like to dial. Now.... I don't have a second number for any of my contacts.

When I go and check them in the contacts menu, they only show one mobile number per contact. When the window thingy pops up, it always shows multiple options of the same exact number, or maybe the same number with some spacings added / removed between the digits. In the following link you can find a screenshot that I took, where I have a choice between three same numbers: [URL] ....

I am 99% sure that the problem is because of google contacts, viber, whatsapp, etc., but do not know how to fix it without removing the contact from the app.

BB Torch :: 9800 Adds Prefix No's To All Contact Numbers?

Jun 12, 2012

New torch bought in Australia adds the No. 86 to the start of each of my contacts numbers when I call/message them. So the contact number 04xx yyy zzz becomes 864xx yyy zzz. Being Chinas' country code I am guessing my phone originated in China???? How do I stop the phone from adding the prefix??

IPhone :: Receiving Sms Messages From A Contact With Multiple Phone Numbers?

Mar 12, 2012

I have many contacts that are couples and have a phone number for each individual. For example, if I had a contact for Jack & Jill, I would have a mobile number for Jill and a mobile number for Jack. In the Contacts I also custom label each mobile number as Jill's mobile and Jack's mobile.When I receive a text message from either of these phone numbers, in Messages I just see that the text is from Jack & Jill. I can't see if it is from Jack's mobile or Jill's mobile.Is there any way to see in Messages exactly which mobile is sending me the text? Or am I going to have to have a separate contact for each person, i.e. Jack & Jill will have to be split up as a contact for Jill and a contact for Jack?

Contact With Multiple Phone Numbers Indistinguishable In Messages On IPhone

Jun 23, 2014

I have a contact with two phones - for instance, John and Jane Doe.┬ I want to text them each separately, and easily see who I'm texting.┬ But in the Messages history, it displays "John and Jane Doe".┬ And it's a hassle to click on the message, then "Contact", then "i" to see which is colored blue.┬

I've even added custom identifiers to each phone number in gmail contacts.┬ Instead of "Mobile" or "Work" I used their names, "John" and "Jane".┬ I'd like to see those custom identifiers in the Messages app.

IPhone :: Multiple Contacts With Multiple Phone Numbers?

May 11, 2012

I have contact list with records for a lot of people (300+), each with several phone numbers each, home, mobile & work, etc, .I can't seem to find a way to have the iPhone announce the name & number or name & type (home,mobile,work) of the caller from the contact list, my old cell phone could do that easily.

At the moment what I've been doing as a work around for a few (important) people is to create a custom ringtone for that caller & that phone number. Since it also seems there's no way to attach a different ringtones to each number in a single contact record I've had to create multiple contact records for each person, each with a different name/number combination such as "John Doe Work", "John Doe Home" or John Doe Mobile" then assign to it the custom ringtone I created for that name/number.

I need to this so that if I receive a call while I'm driving (or whatever) that I can't answer right then for some reason (often happens), the ringtone I created for that name & number helpfully lets me know who & where their calling from. It's very important to know where someone is calling from, if someone's calling from home then I know I've got some time, but if their calling from work then I need to get back to them quickly.

having to make multiple contacts & ringtones for a every person with multiple numbers is a extraordinary waste of time. My old cell phone could do this with no problem but there doesn't seem to be any way to do this with my new iphone.

BB Tour 9630 :: Saving Multiple Numbers With 1 Contact Name

Mar 5, 2010

I was wondering if there is a way on the 9630 to make one phone number of multiple numbers under one contact be the priority?A lot of times I type in the first couple of letters to get the contact and hit send to call them and then I get asked always what number to call on that contact. Starting to get a little old.I would like to make the personal mobile number the priority instead of being asked all the time or at least put in on the top of the list.I also notice on the 8530 for text messaging they have different colored backgrounds for the incoming and outgoing texts. Is there a option on our phones so they can do that too?

Galaxy S6 :: Sending SMS To Multiple Contacts / Numbers

Jun 20, 2015

I'm probably old fashioned, but there are stuff I just prefer doing from my PC, rather than from my mobile.I read that Samsung Kies no longer works with the S6 (Replaced by Smart Switch), but i'm wondering if there's a 3rd party software that lets me control my S6 from a Desktop PC ? The feature i'm basically looking for is Sending SMS to multiple contacts/numbers.

IPhone :: All Phone Numbers Lost Contact Name Details

Jul 1, 2012

My IPhone 4 connected to my mac today. Took a call, then looked through my phone and all the phone numbers have lost there contact name details. It seems that the problem is related to Sync as my contacts are located via microsoft outlook. But sync details are turned on and they are not syncing. Have backed up office 2011 and reinstalled fresh, and still not syncing is happening. So that would say that this is not an office related software issue. I'm lost to backup all and start from scratch.

BB Software :: Adds On Brand New Phone?

Sep 15, 2011

I've just had a replacement bold 9780 after my previous one competely went AWOL.But since getting this new phone, literally like a few hours after getting it I got 3 random adds from people I genuinely don't know, and when asking them how they got my pin none of them replied, although one of them said "don't know" which was helpful

2 were some stupud bleach blonde bints from the UK, and some hench guy who when I looked up on facebook we have absolutely 0 mutual friends and I have a profile set to private so there's no way he could ever get any info from me.I don't understand how a brand new phone's pin can already be spread about when at the time of the adds I hadn't even told anybody about it yet

Nokia :: Contacts With Multiple Numbers Under Same Label

Mar 20, 2010

I have many contacts which have numbers saved under the same label.For example a contact like this:

First name: AMobile: 11Mobile: 22Telephone: 33Telephone: 44
When I open Ovi Suite / Contacts / Contacts in E51 and open the abovementioned contact "A" it shows:

AMobile: 11Telephone: 44Mobile (other): 22As you see it deleted one of "Telephone" labeled numbers. It also happened when I used PC suite.

It is really annoying as if I save/sync the contact using Ovi, it causes loss of contacts data.BTW there is no problem using Backup/Restore function of Ovi/PC suite, nor "Copy to memory card" function of the phone itself.

Ovi suit version :

Nokia E51 v300.34.56

Windows 7

tested another one with 6 different numbers under the same "Mobile" label the result in Ovi is:

AAMobile: 11Mobile (main): 33Mobile (other): 22the other 3 numbers were lost

Xperia X10 Mini/pro :: Multiple Numbers Shown When Text Received?

Jan 12, 2011

I'm hoping someone here can help me! When I receive a text from one particular contact in my phone book, the number displayed is a combination of 4 different numbers, all of which belong to different contacts in my phone book. When I reply the text is sent to the first number of the four which is not the contact who sent me the text! None of these four contacts are connected, nor are they adjacent in my contacts list! I tried deleting the contact affected and then adding back in but this did not fix it. I'm pretty sure this is an issue with the phone rather than the network (3) as all four numbers displayed are contacts of mine and it only happens with one particular contact.It is the proverbial pain in the I've just installed Handcent SMS,

Galaxy S5 :: Why Are Any Phone Numbers Not In Contacts Being Forwarded To Voicemail

Apr 26, 2015

I have a non-rooted, Galaxy S5 on AT&T which forwards any phone number not in my contacts to voicemail after one short ring sound. I have Android lollipop version 5.0 but this problems has been happening for months even under Kit Kat version 4.4.4 and 4.4.2.

I checked call rejection, interruptions, blocking, and cannot find the root cause or remediation. I am also using tasker but I cannot find anything enabled there either. AT&T insists they are not doing anything on their end.
