Re: BB 9700 can't see contact's name on SMS/mms

This is crazy! I have too have the latest firmware available through the Desktop Manager (5.0.0.330) and I still have a problem.

 

If I start the converstation it is fine and shows up correctly, but if someone else texts me first, it shows up with +1XXXXXXXXXX.

Re: BB 9700 can't see contact's name on sms/mms

Do one of the following to fix this problem:

 

1. Make sure you set your own country code at Phone Dialer Screen > Options > Smart dialing.

Set your country code in this format: "+xx" where xx = your country code. Some countries have two or three digit Country Codes. Do not place the '+' in your contact's entry.

  • In the US, set this Country Code as "+1", and place your loca area code in the proper box (this normally the default setting in a new BB).


2. At the same location, change the National Number Length to the number of digits for your country (since some countries will have less than 10 as set as the default in the BB). Find out the total digits, minus the country code. Do not place the '+' in your contact's entry.

  • For example, some countries have a total number to 8 (plus 3 for country code). You would enter "8".


3. You may have "Content Protection" set on your Address Book.

Look at Options > Security > General Settings. Scroll down to Content Protection > Include Address Book = NO.

on your BB, go to the contact and edit the phone number to remove all "(" and "-".  it is a complete pain to do it manually but it will make the contact's name show up in SMS or MMS mode...

Re: BB 9700 can't see contact's name on incoming calls.

There could be any one of four solutions... Try these:
1. Make sure you set your own country code at Phone dialer Screen > Options > Smart dialing.
Set your Country Code in this format: "+xx" where xx = your country code. Some countries have two or three digit Country Codes. Do not place the '+' in your contact's entry.
* In the US, set this Country Code as "+1", and place your local area code in the proper box (this normally the default setting in a new BB).

2. At the same location, change the National Number Length to the number of digits for your country (since some countries will have less than 10 as set as the default in the BB). Find out the total digits, minus the country code. Do not place the '+' in your contact's entry.
* For example, some countries have a total number to 8 (plus 3 for country code). You would enter "8".

3. You may have "Content Protection" set on your Address Book.
OS5 devices: Look at Options > Security > General Settings. Scroll down to Content Protection > Include Address Book = NO.
OS6 devices: Homescreen > Options > Security > Encryption > UNcheck the box next to Encrypt.

4. Go to Options on your device > Security Options > Encryption > Include contacts set to "No"
