caller (name) id question


Aug 17, 2006, 6:01 PM
Just got the 6256i and hoping someone can help me with this question.

When someone from my address book calls me their number displays but not the name. Is there a way to fix this? If so, how?

If you have a name stored with those numbers, it will pop up the name of the person calling.

Actually not. For some reason neither my wife or son popped up. I tried deleting their entries and re-inputting them, no luck. I finally called my phone from their phone's and stored their number from that. Now I have the same number stored twice for each of them, but called ID works.

Sadly, picture ID does not.

I have only had the phone for about a week and haave very mixed feelings about it.

WEIRD! I have no explanation for this...maybe you should ask Nokia about it...

Actually, I am close to going back to my LG VX8300. I know that its a personal thing, but I just don't like the design, fit and feel of this phone. Damn shame as I really want a tri-mode phone capable of working with a full vehicle pro installed car kit.
