    Hi

    I just bought the G6 for my wife, everything is fine, except that 4 contacts don't show names in the SMS app, but their phone number.

    All the others are fine.

    What can I do ?

    Thanks

    Welcome to Android Central! Are those contacts saved to the phone's Contacts app? If so, are the numbers showing up in the SMS app exactly the same as what's saved in Contacts, or is there anything extra (like a country code)?

    Check your contacts sync settings and make sure they are on. Resync them. (Turn off and then back on)

    Also, have you tried rebooting the phone?

    Hi

    I tried all theses solutions, and nothing happened.
    Numbers are exactly in the sms app as in contact, without any country indicator.
    I tried adding one without any luck

    For those contacts that only display as a number, select their entry in the Contacts app and edit it. Look carefully at the fields -- is the name entered into the First/Last Name fields, or is it somewhere else (like Company)? If a contact's First/Last Name field is blank, it will most likely show up as only the number, even if you have other text in other fields.
