    I saved some text alerts ie from banks with contact names but they stopped showing with name all of a sudden. Anybody else see this. I've a five digit contact #

    Also noticed my Google contacts haven't sync since the 5th

    I have turned battery saver off and on which I thought was the issue but didn't fix

    Not sure if the account sync is the issue with the five digit contacts or not

    Same thing happens to me. I think it's the way Google Contacts saves the phone number. I noticed that after going back and reviewing the saved Contact the number was saved with a dash after the third number, like it's defaulting to trying to save a 5 digit number as a normal phone number. Whatever the issue, it's with the way Google Contacts saves these 5 digit numbers. I can't find a way to make them display the Contact name in the Messages app.
