    Question Contact Names in Text Message

    Help! Sorry, I'm a newbie here - so I apologize if this topic has been covered. I didn't see it in FAQs. The 1st day I got my Droid 2 by Motorola, I had them take my contacts from my old phone and upload them to my new phone. My husband and I both got an account. I put his new Verizon number in my phone under his name... HOWEVER whenever I get a text message from him, rather than showing me his name &/ picture it comes up with his number, only. None of my other contacts do that - it shows me their name. Any idea of how to fix this? It drives me crazy because I have to check the # and make sure it's my husband's and not that it's a new person texting me who I don't have saved as a contact yet! Any info would be appreciated! Not sure where I've gone wrong!!! Thanks!

    Go into the contacts and make sure the information you have stored for him is correct. That's the only thing I can think of that would make it not show correctly.

    Yeah, I tried that. I even took him out and put him back in my phone again to see if that would help. It didn't work! I have no idea why! Anyone else have a suggestion? Thanks, though, pool_shark!

    I've had this happen. It looks like the number itself is saved as a contact. Go to the text then long press the sender in this case your husbands number. Select view contact, it should take you to the contact that's saved. If it takes you to a bogus contact in this case a contact listing of that number only then delete the contact.

    Kinda long winded but I hope it makes sence
