| | Contact Names Not Showing When Receiving Call or SMS depen on how the number is saved
Please Login to Remove!
I recently moved over to another service provider and now im having the following issue (i didnt have this issue on my other SIM card from the other network):
When i receive calls, instead of the contact's name appearing as it would normally, the number appears instead. I eventually troubleshooted this issue by changing the way i save the number so i now dont save it in the international format i.e. +27839990000 but rather save it as 0839990000. This fixed the problem so i now see the contact's name when they call me but it has now created another problem:
When i now receive txt msgs the name doesnt come up but rather their number. Incidentally the number comes up as the international format.
Ideally; id like my numbers saved in international format as when i travel abroad for business im going to have to change the format each time i dial a number.
As i said; this wasnt an issue with my previous provider.
Any help appreciated!!
