Does your plan include Caller ID?  If not, that will likely be the cause.

Re: Calling contacts always come in as unknown

what do you mean by plan? :smileyhappy: its a reltivly new phone, and the names of my contacts always used to come up when they were calling and now they dont anymore. it also messed around my whatsapp conatcs. iv typed in caller ID in my search bar to see all the options that would come up.. and i found nothing that helped me.

Hello AW0317!
Whenever a strange behavior occurs do a battery pull out restart. With the power on pull out the battery and wait for 20 sec.

Regards,
Kostadin.

Re: Calling contacts always come in as unknown

I would suggest speaking with your carrier (Virgin Mobile) to see if they can help.  I strongly suspect that the issue could be resolved at their end, since it sounds like you haven't made any changes on your device.  The only other suggestion I would have is to reload the device OS - but I would hold that as a last resort.

Hi AW0317

 

 

                      I don't know if it will help but still have your enabled Encryption on your device ?   On your HomeScreen Go to Options > Security > Encryption > If you have enabled Encryption then make sure  " Include Contacts " is Unchecked or UNmarked .

 

Also On your Homescreen go to Options > Call Management > Smart Dialing >  Check your " Country Code "
