    I am trying to edit a contact who moved companies and when I change the company name or the email address I get a message contact name cannot exceed 17 characters... weird contact name is 5 letters for the first name and 5 letters for the surname... Any ideas?

    Why not just hit the X on the name field and re enter it.

    There might be some spaces that are taking up space. If you know what I mean.

    Tried that, tried removing and re-entering the name, tried deleting the name... only solution seems to be deleting the contact and adding as new...

    How many characters does the Company Name have in it?

    That is quite strange. I have several contacts where the last name and or the company name is significantly in excess of 17 characters, a few that are 30 or more.

    What os version are you on?

    Which model of phone do you have?

    Please post a screenshot of the contact that caused the problem.

    Please post a screenshot of the error message.

    With a little more info, people here can help find the source of the problem for you.

    It's possible that that's the limit when saving to SIM.

    I think it's a combination of linking contacts... SIM, Linkedin and local... I unlinked the contacts and it worked so some where in the linking was a limit. The company name is less than 12 letters, contact name 10 total between first and last... it's a poser for me.
