    Angry contact names not showing in text messages

    When I get a text message it just shows the number with a +1 added to it. The name doesn't show up. So I cleared the partition cache. Didn't work.
    I did a hard reset. Didn't work. I added +1 to all my contacts didn't work.
    Does anyone have a solution for this problem? I don't sync my contacts with any accounts. I've talked to my carrier. They had no clue how to resolve it. I talked to Motorola. They couldn't help. I'm at a loss. Can anyone help resolve this issue? I have an Atrix HD and 4.1.1
    Help.

    Help.
    Go into system settings > accounts > Google > contacts sync. Make sure that's enabled. Also, go into the contact/people app and see if there is a setting to enable/disable names for each contact as opposed to the phone number.
