| | Address book problem - SMS/Voice call
Please Login to Remove!
I'm in the UK, carrier is O2. My Pearl is running v126.96.36.199 (188.8.131.52)
Whenever I receive a voice call the display shows who is calling, i.e. it picks up the name from the address book.
However, whenever I receive an SMS from the same person it displays the number only, i.e. it doesn't pick up the name.
I found out why and have a workaround....
It seems that voice calls like numbers in the format 01224 567890, but sms likes numbers in the format +441224567890
So, in order to make sure that when somebody voice calls me or texts me I get their name I have to enter both the 01224 & the +441224 numbers in the same address list, 1 under mobile, and the other under say pager.
I know other people on O2 are having the exact same problem.
Any ideas if this is a bug which is being addressed etc?
I did try searching but couldn't find anything.
