When I receive and sms and my iPhone is sleeping, it wakes up and shows the SMS in a popup mode. However, the contact name isn't displayed. Only the persons numbers, as in, +65 ########. When I go to my SMS folder however, the persons name is displayed. Is there anyway to enable display of contact name in SMS received?

And the person is sending you a text message from the same phone number you have associated with them in your contact list?

Yes sir. As I said, I cant see the contact's name when I first receive the sms in popup form. I can only see the person's number. But if i go to the sms in my sms folder, the person's name is displayed at the top.

Reset/reboot the phone?

that didn't work. Hmm. This is weird. because the iPhone can identify who calls me and link it with my Contacts perfectly although I had to edit the plist for that to work properly. Maybe there is a file that needs to be edited for this?:eek:

That's strange!? If you got the contact name + number it should then only show the name in the pop up! There is no where on the iPhone to change this! I remember seeing a setting on my old 1V 1.1.4 where you could get an preview of the message or not - but not changing the name/number...
