    SMS problem

    Advertisement



    Hi

    I've just got the Blackberry Pearl today and even though all of my contacts are added correctly, when I receive a text message from one of them it comes up with their number and not their name. Does anyone know how I can change this or will it always be the number and not senders name that appears?

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the Stacks Acquiesce. Open your phone app, click to Options/Smart Dialing, if the Country Code is set to +1, try changing it to unknown and save, if it's set to unknown, try setting it to +1 (I actually forget which is the standard, but this should fix this issue for you).

    well, for me. if the person has nextel, it has their name, their phone number, then their message. however everyone else, it has their name, then their message. this is when i'm in the messages app and i have all of the messages in a list. you can't tell the difference when you actually open a message. but it's no biggie, still can get the messages.

    u wont find it in the regular options menu. go to the phone app(press the green phone key) in the call log screen press menu.. u'll find options there. chk that out.

    Nextel is the problem. Their SMS service is screwy! It'd talk them into switching to a GSM carrier (TMo or Cingy)
