Default screen layout-today(current)

Please Login to Remove!

i'm new to this so i hope i'm not breaking any ground rules. i just purchased my phone last week and was excited to find the "today" view. i had it all going just perfectly to where i could read the name of who sent a txt message under the message section when i would receive a new incoming txt, well my friend wanted to look my phone and started pressing buttons on it, now i can't get it to show the name of my contact who is sending the text. i even tried taking out the battery and reseting it, but still it won't show the contact. it will however, show that i have 1 unread message. oh another thing it's doing is it's adding on the conversation even when i deleted all prior messages. can anyone help me please, it's driving me nuts on what could be wrong.

SMS text message basics
About SMS text messages
To send and receive SMS text messages, your wireless service provider must set up your wireless service plan for SMS text messaging. Depending
on your wireless service provider, this feature might not be supported.
You can forward SMS text messages as PIN messages or email messages. If your BlackBerry® device is connected to a CDMA network, you can
also send an SMS text message to an email address.
If you have more than one phone number associated with your device, your device sends SMS text messages using the first phone number that
appears in the drop-down list beside the My Number field at the top of the screen in the phone application.
Depending on the typing input language that you are using to type your SMS text messages, your messages might display to your recipients
differently than you expect.
Send an SMS text message
You can send an SMS text message to up to ten recipients. Depending on your theme, a separate icon on the Home screen might appear for
SMS text messages and MMS messages.
1. On the Home screen, click the Messages icon.
2. Press the Menu key.
3. Click Compose SMS Text.
4. In the To field, perform one of the following actions:
• Type a contact name.
• Press the Menu key. Click Choose Contact. Click a contact.
• Type a phone number that can receive SMS text messages (include the country code and area code).
• If your device is connected to a CDMA network, you can type an email address.
