Android Central Question


My gear S3 was doing funny things few days back. Started with step counts and heart rate stopped working so I did restore to factory setting and it worked.

Now I ended up with text message not showing contact name but instead it shows the phone number - even though I have that number in my contact list.

Cant seem to find the answer to fix this problem. Been doing few reset - connect to new phone and restart amd all that few times didnt seem to work.

Any suggestion?
Appreciate any help.
