Re: SMS/CONTACTS PROB.....

Do you have content protect or encryption set on your contacts in Options > Security?

Re: SMS/CONTACTS PROB.....

I toggled wit 'em all. Eventually set it @ .....content compression>enabled, content protection> DISABLED, strength >strong, include contacts >NO...... I tried everything...... I even removed my battery for 10mins, put a diffrerent sim from a different network, then another sim from another network, then the same sim I was initially using. Still didn't make a difference. ..... The problem is, I have a lot of names and numbers in my contacts that are there witout the country code, and usually it works perfectly, wen I get an sms, all I see is the display name as entered in my contacts. But now its just country code/number , no names..... Its really fraustrasting cos within the last 24 hours I hav received tonnes and tonnes of sms' but have to write the numbers down and dial them normally to know who sent 'em......and when I try to highlight the numbers in the sms' and toggle btwn 'show name' and 'show address' it doesn't present me with the option to. When I save number, It gives me the option to wait or pause. That's odd, I know. I went thru all the threads and figured, if u don't know , then nobody knows. Cos u r the man, @least u r ahead of most .....pls sir, help me, am about to lose mre than you can imagine. Thank u.

Re: SMS/CONTACTS PROB.....

I don't understand some points. You do have the country code set for those contacts?
What are your settings in the Call Log > Options > Smart Dialing?
Please be clear in answering.

Re: SMS/CONTACTS PROB.....

Ok, a typical number (country code inclusive) looks like this : +2348031234567....... But usually, wen u get a local call or an sms it appears like this: 08031234567...... Now , most of my contacts are saved in the latter format. I.e without the country code. But my problem is, wether or not I hve the contact already stored in my phone, the sms' appear without a display name, and with the country code( the former format). The settings for my smart dialling are : country code> +234, area code>80, national number length>10.....all the other fields are blank. For call logging: show these call log types in message list>all calls............. To answer your 1st question clearly, I didn't save the contacts numbers with the country code..... The problem is still same. Waiting for your response sir. Thanks.
