My Device: Bold 9900

Receiving incoming calls.

I have a BB Bold 9900. My tariff is with Vodafone UK. Since the device was new, unlike my last 9700, whenever I receive an incoming call, all that is displayed on mother screen is the number. Where I have a linked picture to the contact, that will show but seeing as I only have 2 pictures attached to me contacts (of which I have over 1700) that is not mgood use! So the issue is, does anyone know why the name and/or company name does not a appear on the screen (only the number) when someone calls me. Before you ask, I have checked the relevant boxes etc in the options page of the phone app just to make certain that I haven't missed something obvious!

Best regards

Re: Receiving incoming calls.

It wasn't designed to show that information, there is not option to change which will display it.
