Default Upgrading from BB7100 > 8800 - contacts name no longer show when they call

Please Login to Remove!


Alot os users in our office have upgarded from old 7100 models to new 8800 models from vodafone UK. All setups done via wireless activations.

Now, quite a few have reported that when people call now the callers names dont show up - yet they are in the contacts.

Whats the specific format that the phone numbers need to be ?

So far they are say +44xxxxxxxxx dont show the names.

Any ideas?

Remove the country code from the numbers in the contacts, enter the country code in the Smart Dialing section... etc. Read details here:
