OK. I just got a Sidekick 3. It is on the T-Mobile network. It's working fine.... however....

Whenever I get a text from someone, it only shows their number (ex: 1-555-123-3456 instead of John Smith).

All of the numbers are saved as 11 digit numbers. The contacts show up everywhere else, like when you make calls and when someone calls you. However, only the phone number is displayed when receiving texts. Kind of annoying because I don't know who is texting me.


What's wrong? and how do I fix this?

Thanks. :doh:

Do you have data connectivity? Without it for some reason the stupid Sidekicks do this. Same if the contacts are only on the sim card.

Make sure they are in the contacts app and that you have the G at the top.
