    Problem with address book after data plan

    Advertisement



    Initially I didn't have the data plan for my BB, i'm very glad I found a good plan for my phone that wasn't much of a cost increase so that I could have it though. BUT, now whenever I recieve an SMS it doesn't display names next to it, but rather the number of that person. Is there any way to fix that to make it show names again?

    I looked around for the option for a good 15 minutes and couldnt find anything, maybe one of you guys/girls can help?

    This may help, when you are in the SMS or you are looking at the SMS messages, click the thumb wheel and select SHOW NAMES. This will replace the numbers with the names of the individuals who sent you the message!

    Go to your address book, click menu, and load from sim...

    When I am in my "Messages" (looking at my SMS) I don't see an option for the "show names."

    I did the load from SIM, but all it does is bring up 4 numbers, 411 x2, Customer Care, and Voice Mail. Should all of my numbers be in that?

    You might have to save them on your sim from your old phone...

    Don't have an old phone. =x I could maybe use a friends since they mostly have tmobile, is that what I need to do though is have all of my contacts saved to my SIM?

    I don't understand how this would be a problem only after I had the data activation.

    So your address book was working before the data plan?

    Yeah. It even slightly works now, it's just something like 80% of the messages show up as numbers rather than names.

    Did you click on the thumb wheel, then scroll down through the drop down menu?

    Also try highlighting the number, then click the thumb wheel and look for the show names option.

    Lol... Yeah I changed my plan over to a myfave and data plan package. Sounds like that's why. Any idea how to fix it that being the case?

    Re: Problem with address book after data plan

    Is there anything common with the ones that show names instead of numbers, or common with the ones that don't?

    Trying to figure out something to suggest.

    Re: Problem with address book after data plan

    Yeah the ones that don't display names are the people in the MyFaves plan. =x When I send a text to them that isn't replying (as in I click the BBerry button on the contact and select "SMS text soandso" then it will display their name under my messages, but any time I just reply or get sent a text it displays their number. It's pretty annoying. =/

    This may be a problem with the MyFaves app on the BB.

    I don't know anything about that.

    Sorry
