Default SMS/myFaves bug?

Please Login to Remove!

when i receive text msg's from certain contacts, instead of showing the name it displays only their phone number. well, all three contacts i'm experiencing this with are in my myFaves, so i'm guessing that's the cause.

can anyone else confirm or refute this?

I have the same issue. Drives me nuts as I don't know everybody's phone number off hand. Next question is now that I unlocked my Pearl and moved over to Cingular, how the heck do I update MyFaves when they release an update

MyFaves is a T-Mobile service. You can't use it with Cingular.

UPDATE: I spoke with T-Mobile and then with BlackBerry. They are working together to build an update that will resolve the issue with the myFaves and name resolution when receiving a text message. They said it will be fixed with the next update that T-Mobile puts out.

The problem is that T-Mo is reeeeeeealy slow with updates. Until then I guess we are just stuck recognizing the number when we get a txt from a fav.
