Displaying contact name when text messaging is received

I have downloaded an app that displays the name of the sender through text messaging. I would like to change the app but when I do that, I lose the name of the person that is texting me(can see it before I open the message).


My question is, is there a way I can do this without an app?


Hopefully you understand what I am saying.


All and any help is greatful.


Thanks Smiley Happy

Re: Displaying contact name when text messaging is received

Hello pand8308 and welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.


We are unable to comment on 3rd party apps. You can contact the app vendor as shown in KB27706.


On a side note, is this contact saved in your Address Book? If so, do you have this contact saved as you would like it to be displayed when an SMS is received?
