    Anybody ever experience an issue when a contact calls you get the number and not the name? Also happening with SMS.

    Setup Gmail holds all my contacts in the cloud, international assist is off.

    A contact called me last night and there number came up as (xxx)xxx-xxxx

    Contact in contact list was 1 (xxx)xxx-xxxx

    try taking the "1" off the front of the number and see if that helps associate the correct number with the contact...

    I had a glitch just a couple hours ago. A client sent me a text, but their name wasn't displayed, only the phone # the text came from. Fortunately I could readily identify them based on area code. They've been in my contacts for a couple years now, and made sure they were in my Contacts when I set up this phone. Anyway, I was looking around after the text came in and the client's entry was not in my address book anymore. Even stranger still, their # was showing up as an alternate # for the contact next to them in my address book. I didn't Edit either entry at anytime, so it wasn't a mistake I made. Hope it's a one time fluke, what a nightmare that would create.

    Sorry AP, meant to also suggest checking your adjacent contacts, see if any of their info somehow landed there, like it did in my situation.

    i just use it to sync my apps/camera roll/settings/documents/etc. you can have icloud off and when u leave phone charging connected to wifi before you go to sleep u can back up automatically. thats what i do. then during day it is off. i sync my contacts with gmail. icloud came in handy when i restored my iphone 2-3 times to fix this battery issue

    I have yet to successfully use iCloud to back up my phone. It just sits there after I hit "backup".

    All is well with my contacts. Stupid leading 1. iCloud backup works fine for me.

    Did you set it up on the phone?

    no problem..

    I have a similar issue with my Blackberry.. when the wife calls I get "Unknown Caller" even though the phone/contact name is in there.. I'll be using Google Sync once I finally get my iP4S...
