Caller ID sometimes not working after 2.2 update
Caller ID sometimes not working after 2.2 update on my Dinc.
I have people who are stored in my address book and I have noticed that I am having an intermittent problem with caller ID.
Sometimes my Dinc will recognize the person from my address book and display their name and picture and other times, it only shows the phone # and no other indentifying info. It seems to be isolated to 2-3 individuals.
I didn't have this issue before the 2.2 update. I have already wiped my phone once and reinstalled 2.2, but still have the issue.
I thought about just deleting, then recreating the contact for the contacts that are affected, to see if this solves the problem.
Also, when I create a new contact.... I have 2 choices....to create it under my "google" acct. or to create it under "phone."
Anyone know which is the best one to choose ?
Anyone else have issues with caller ID being inconsistent since 2.2 ??

You should pull out the battery with the phone on to see if this resolve the problem if not delete the contact affected and you most create any new contact under Google address book , because it will sync with your gmail account and will keep a back online accessible through your account.

Well, the problem went away for a few weeks, now it is back. I can't seem to detect any pattern. Maybe on 2 out of 10 calls, my dinc can't provide caller ID information, even though the contact is in my address book.
Sometimes for the same person, it will provide caller ID and at other times, it will not.
Has anyone else experienced this problem since installing 2.2 ???
I haven't had the chance to delete and re-add the affected contacts.
I am wondering if there is an easier fix ??
Other than problems with caller ID, 2.2 seems to be working pretty well on my Incredible.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks for the feedback...sounds like others have the same issue. Mine is random as well. Sometimes caller ID will work for one person and for the same person, it won't work on a subsequent call.
I have heard the first thing to try is deleting and re-adding people to the address book, but I haven't had the time to do that yet.
Does anyone know of a fix that doesn't involve deleting then re-adding people in the address book ??

Do the contacts you r having problems with have multiple phone numbers? If so, try changing the default phone number for the contact. Not sure it is new with 2.2, but it looks like it defaults to mobile number. If yo get a call from the contact on the non-default number caller I'd doesn't show name, etc.
It's crazy a caller could call me from their mobile at noon and I may not see caller ID, then the same caller calling me again from their mobile 10 minutes later will show their caller ID.
Doesn't seem to be any rhym or reason that I can see.

i have the same issue. what sucks even more, after i have this issue, my call log will also log that call separately as coming from an Unknown person instead of grouping it properly with my proper contact. seems like a bug with 2.2

I submitted a trouble ticket to Verizon and sounds like they are working on a fix (hopefully).
Verizon Wireless is aware of this issue and we are working diligently around the clock to get this matter resolved. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide a time frame when we will have a software to resolve this issue. I apologize for the inconvenience that this issue has caused.
After explaining that we are working to resolve this issue, thank you for your patience. Again, my name is Jay and I appreciate your business and thank you for using Verizon Wireless. Should you have additional questions or feel your concerns are not resolved, please reply to this e-mail:
Ok folks, is anyone else getting sick of this caller ID issue, or is it affecting just a small # of us ??
I have sent email to Verizon customer support. They said that they are working on it. However, I think the more people complain the fast it will get resolved.
Here's the link to contact VZW

Verizon sent me an email that they are aware of the problem and are "working on it.." whatever that means.
I would expect more people to be complaining about this issue. I am wondering if there is an app. that those of us who are having the problem all have on our phones that could be causing the problem....just a thought ?

Same problem on htc Evo running froyo. Sometimes the number name and picture shows up and sometimes it does not. I thought it might be a problem with the way the number was saved in the phone... For example with a dash or parentheses, but that does nor seem to be the case. Hope they fix it soon.
I also have an issue with the gmail app not letting me download attachments, I know that this issue is also only affecting a small portion of android users, I wonder if the issues are somehow related.
I noticed there is a 17.7 MB update pushed to my phone yesterday. I haven't installed it yet, wondering if other have.
