    Right been lurking for a while so thought id finally post on the forums!

    Have searched for the solution as to why contact names are not appearing whilst numbers are even though they are saved in my contact list.

    I've read go security options>general settings>content lock....

    However, the bold 9700 with O.S 5 does not have this option.

    So how can I make contact names appear??? Pretty please..

    People are getting annoyed when they call me and I am like who is this!

    Cheers!

    I'm assuming you are talking about contacts that are on your phone.

    I don't think caller ID works the same as a landline showing the persons name.

    Cheers for that paddy, was wondering if it might have been that!

    I await someone to ring me to see if it works!

    Bronx, yeah the contacts on my phone.

    why not test it, lock the phone, call your mobile from a landline. and voila you have a completed test.

    i had my mate test it a few weeks ago as he rang me and i didnt know who it was, when we met up for a drink i got him to test again until i sorted the problem.

    You have to take all punctutation out of your numbers () -, etc. There's been a million threads on this already. It's a flaw in the software that will need to be corrected.
