How do I get the caller's name to appear?


This is probably very simple, but how do I set contacts so their name appears when they call me? Some of mine do, but others don't.

I see a PacMan type thing next to some of the names, but I don't see any explanation in the user's guide about what that means.

Please tell me how to set the names to appear and what that PacMan thing is.

having the same prob with E71.
its got something to do with the how the phone's firmware recognize length of the phone number. if the number is saved with the area/country code, caller name is not presented but is shown in SMS and vice versa if no area/country code is saved.
i'm also trying to fix this prob. my operator also have 7 digit numbers

Smile Contact Display

In my experience the contact display always works , using 12 digits .
(+49123456789) . Except :
1) when the Network / Operator doesn't support number display : ask your operator
2) when the caller disables his/her number display : ask your contact .
SMS always come with a number .

Regards jApi NL

as above, or when you have a duplicate of the contact in ...

Also, the pacman thing is the voice tag.
