Guest Joe Android Posted May 18, 2011 Report Share Posted May 18, 2011 I have noticed that when dialing a local phone number, one that is in my contact list too, that the identity does not show on the screen, only as unknown. I find it helpful to verify whom I'm calling by looking at the screen (Bad Eyes). I keep all my contacts in MS Outlook and enter the full number (area code and number) in the contact field. When I sync with the PC, contacts are added to the phone with no problem and info is correct. When dialing a known contact, if I do not enter the local area code, this is when it shows as unknown. If I dial the local area code first and then the number, the contact name shows up. Example- 555-1212= UNKNOWN, 925-555-1212= Joe Android. Normally, it is not necessary to dial your home area code first. If I edit out the local area code in the phone contact list, problem solved... until I sync with Outlook again when the area code is re-entered. Area code info is required when you are outside your local calling area, so editing the A/C out is not viable. Other phones I have had did not have this problem. Verizon and HTC have been no help. I think it's a hassle to dial the extra 3 digits when local dialing as I know this is one solution. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
