Default Names and numbers not corresponding on my blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I've been having some problems with my blackberry for a few weeks and have to keep resetting and backing it up.

I'd removed a number of an ex-partner a few months ago and last week I was telephoned by an acquaintance. When we've looked at the phone tonight the number of my ex-partner is under the name of the acquaintance.

How is this possible when it had been deleted?

Depending on the contact software your using such as Outlook, somewhere there is a wrong listing. If not in the contact software on a PC then the listing must be on the BB.

Thanks but I still don't understand how this person had been deleted and then his number comes up under someone else who has called me. It definitely wasn't him. It's as if I've stored his number under someone elses name and their proper number has disappeared completely!

I would search the contact list for both the name and number in any area, work, home etc. IT has to be somewhere.

Which number do you mean? The false one or the real one? I'm confusing myself now

Yep deleted that entirely now. I'm not sure of the real number as it's not on my back up, although it was there a week ago.

Also when I called another contact a week ago, it was the wrong number under his name...................I still haven't a clue whose number this is as the voice didn't even sound familiar.

Have you ever heard of this problem before?

I have had wrong numbers accidently inputted on my cell phone and at odd times the displayed name will not match the number actually being received. Remember the Blackberry will show the name of any contact listing that has the number and not the number itself. Some place either on one of your backups or the current contact list that number is associated. It will take some digging but it must be there somewhere.
