Question Intermittent Text Id's?

Please Login to Remove!

Well I will start off with the fact that this is my first Blackberry. I just purchased my 8100 on Friday and noticed on Saturday that there are certain contacts in my address book that do not show up when they send me a text. Herei s where it gets even more weird... I recieved a text on friday and recieved the "name" id for that person then recieved a text from the same person on saturday and it just shows their phone number. I have searched this great forum but did not seem to find anything that would help.

Anyone else have this issue? Sorry if this is a total noob question!

OK, first question. Did you go through the "set-up wizard"? Do you remember a part asking if you want to add contacts?

Do you have myFaves? Are the people that are sending the text messages part of your myFaves? If so, there is a known issue with text messages from people on myFaves. T-Mo and BlackBerry (RIM) are working on an update that will fix this.

Yes I do! And that explains it exactly! I knew there had to be a rhyme to the craziness. Thanks a million

also go into call logs/options/smart dailing, then enter your country international dialing code prefix. ie england is +44. that solved my issues

LOL! it sorted my issue of numbers in the contacts list starting +44 would not show callers name but would show name in sms messages. then if i took the +44 off it would do the reverse - show callers name but not on sms. thats how i resolved my problem.
