    How do I get my WhatsApp contacts' names to display instead of their cellphone numbers?

    Some show names, and others show numbers in their international even though I have them in my phonebook WITH names and numbers.

    I'm sorry I deleted my WhatsApp out of my Z when BBM went cross platform. Let me ask - have you deleted the app and reinstalled it?

    Either 1 - 3 will work.

    1) Goto Phone Contacts, Edit, do whatever until the SAVE is clickable. Then SAVE. Go to Whatsapp, Favorites, Refresh.
    2) Goto Phone Contacts, Edit, ensure IDD country code is in correct numeric format/standard. Then SAVE. Go to Whatsapp, Favorites, Refresh.
    3) Goto Phone Contacts, Edit, ensure there are no spacings in the numeric entries (e.g. +123 456 78910 - change to +12345678910). Then SAVE. Go to Whatsapp, Favorites, Refresh.

    p/s There is no shortcut, you have to do the above each time for each contact whose name does not appear on your Whatsapp (assuming of course they have Whatsapp installed).
