    rooting is just software. there is a procedure to unroot if you really need to return a device because of hardware. I waited a bit before rooting but then I thought back over all the phones I have had and not once have I returned a device because of software.
    hmmmmm interesting

    I contacted HTC and they are aware of the various problems and say they're working on a patch that they'll be sending out. Seems like they rushed the update out without making sure it was fully functioning.
    Cool! Thanks for the update.

    You can do the same thing by importing that contact into your profile...

    Easy fix that worked for me.

    Go in and copy all your contacts that sync with your Yahoo, FB, Google, etc. to your sim card. In your people list, uncheck your view sim contacts. (So you won't show all your contacts twice.)

    Go back in to view your texts. It should now match your texts with the contacts on your sim. Oddly it seems to not see your Yahoo, FB, Google, etc. contacts' names when a text comes in. So it shows the number.

    Can anyone verify this temp. fix for me?

    Right, i'm saying copy all your contacts to your sim, then check your messages.

    Another thing that works is to just use Handcent as your messaging app.

    Well this worked for me...for one day... After I had to turn the phone on (from it turning itself off...again) the messages went back to numbers only, with contacts on my SIM card.

    As I posted in another thread, there are a few things you can do to temporarily bring the names up. There is no true fix. You can use a third party app, but I don't like those. They look like they are geared towards teenagers. It is not unreasonable to expect the stock messaging app to function as it should.

    I tried your suggestion but nothing. Yesterday the way I fixed it was by deleting a contact from my Contacts and then adding them again...and it worked.

    But today with a friend I tried it and nothing. All sort of ways. The odd thing is now his name will not come out any sort of way even though I have his number saved.

    I click his number (thats blue) and it brings me to a screen that on the top says "Verify the phone number" and then it has a space with a number and an X all the way to the right.
    with the options "Call" "Send Message" and "Open Contact" below....

    Any idea if maybe I have to do something here?
    I have the same problem....... all I do is click open contact and it brings up the persons name. then click the back button and the name will appear instead of the number. If you delete the tewxt thread you will have to do it again.

    I have found that if you have a email also saved for the contact and it says "primary" beside it...once i deleted the email info and saved it no more number was found by the name in my text conversation list. Also un-link from Facebook helps to.

    I had the same problem and also had a missing keyboard!
    I worked out it is because for that one contact i had a few different contact links save in their details (Google, icloud, messenger, ect). so i selected that contact i had problems with then i selected settings and selected manage links. I deleted one of those links and it fixed all my problems.. no need to pull battery out.
