Text Messaging to Contacts

[ Edited ]

So this is really odd, and not sure how to fix it.  I'm super analretentive about my address book, so everything is input correctly to a T, no duplicates, etc.

 

When I'm viewing a text message, at the top of the screen you see the avatar followed by the person's name.  When you click on that it pulls up the person's contact information in the address book.  Now, for some of my text messages it does not do this for.  When I click on the profile, it brings up a list of contacts and tells me to "Select A Contact".  Why is this doing this, and how can I stop it?

 

Again, for some contacts it doesn't do this for, but for other's it does.

 

Thanks.

Re: Text Messaging to Contacts

In your contacts, do you have any contacts databases turned off, such as your SIM card contacts not showing?

 

Open your contacts, swipe down from the top > Settings

Re: Text Messaging to Contacts

On mine the "Select a Contact" comes up only when the person is not saved in the address book.

Re: Text Messaging to Contacts

That is correct, I do not have my SIM card displayed, I don't store numbers on there.  Should I have my SIM card displayed?
