    Contact Name in SMS is illegible

    Advertisement



    Hi all

    I've been browsing the forum and am unable to find a solution to my problem. Some contact names in my SMS messages are illegible, i.e. then name of the contact is garbled. This only happens to some of the contacts. I have a 8700g.

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks.

    is it repeatable, meaning always the same people's that are garbled?
    or is it always when you get a text at a certain time? any patterns you noticed at all?

    Happens to only certain contacts, however I don't see a pattern in those certain contacts - it is quite random.

    only certain contacts, meaning always with those same ones, or once in awhile with those certain ones? Do those people have non-english characters in their name?

    I would try it this way. Delete one of them from the Address Book that is consistently unreadable, then call them and ask them to send you a text msg or two. See if it arrives without any garble, then do add to address book from there and try again.
