getDisplayPhoneNumber in 4.7

BlackBerry Storm 9530 /


I saw some other issues about getDisplayPhoneNumber but I don't think I saw this one.


If I call getDisplayPhoneNumber it's returning the following:


Mobile ?1231231234


The phone number is correct but why doesn't this method return the contact name like in previous OS versions?


The contact is listed in the address book and the name shows up on the phones caller ID.
