    I'm not sure when, but after my 'app-spree', which consisted of trying and downloading random apps (I'm pretty sure I am not the only one who had this spree... ) my phone decided to not show the names that are in my contact.
    Example, say that I have 'John' as number 295-292-8276, added on my contact list, so normally, if 'John' calls me, my phone SHOULD say "Receiving Call : John".
    But on my phone, it would only show the number, but doesn't say 'John", funnily, this only happens when my phone is locked.
    I usually keep my phone locked (for GOOD reasons ), so "Stop locking your phone" isn't an option.

    Is anyone else having this problem?
    Did I miss something in the options/settings?
    Or did my 'app-spree' somehow changed this on my phone?

    *oh, and if by any chance, does anyone know a good app that protects individual programs/files?*

    Thanks in advance

    How much free file space do you have??? Alt + Right Shift + H... scroll down to the bottom of this list will show you how many File Free.

    When is the last time you did a battery pull???? Battery Pull: leave your device on, pull the battery, leave it out 20 seconds, put the battery back in and wait for the device to boot up... try that and see if the names show up again.

    Wow... how many apps do you still have loaded??? I have about 20 apps and still have about 125-130MB free after a battery pull.

    50MB?? Are you serious? Do you have media stored on your device (pictures, music, etc)? If so, I would recommend getting a storage card for that instead of storing them on your device.

    The only way you can get that much free space is if you have nothing at all installed on your device. The most space you can probably get on a device with an OS installed is somewhere around 160 MB.

    seriously, you can get as high as 160 MB??? How and what programs should be deleted to get that high??? I can only get 126 MB max.

    I've deleted Voce Activated Dialing (around 2 MB as i recall) and Help (definitely 3 MB, deleted last week).

    You need to use CrackMem and clean up all the stuff you don't need. Frankly, I wouldn't worry about it because 120 MB is PLENTY for your device to run great.

    @aristile : stilll, more file free gives me more ease of mind lol. I'm used to keeping the file free above 100.
