Got my N8 yesterday and it's fantastic *Most* things just work as expected!
The only issue I have is that incoming calls are not recognized as contacts i.e. the number is just shown and not the name.
Any clues? Thanks...
Solved! Go to Solution.
If a number is used in more than 1 contact, no name is displayed. So check whether the number is multiple used.
Spot on! That was the problem... many thanks!
But what happens if people living in the same house have their own mobile numbers and shared land line? I'd prefer to have my contact list complete and from either contact be able to phone their land line. I know this gives the phone a problem choosing but can't it just pick the first contact with that number?
N8 is very ok for me, but I have a problem : when I have more than 1 number on the same contact, impossible to choice between different numbers to call, when the number is not the first one. Can you help me?
I know this kinda late to reply your message. Since there are noreply to your question.
But I think you should know the answer by now.
Anyway, if one contact have several number and one number is set to be the default
for call or for messaging, then you have no way to select number when calling.
but, if there are no number set as default for this particular contact, then the phone should
give you a list of number for this contact.
Hope this help, if not too late. :-D
oops, I afraid you are wrong, Just check this
You can select the number even if you assigned the defaults.
One question..How do I save an incoming number ( a new number/caller ) into the Phone Book on my N8 ?
All my previous phones, ( not Nokia's ) had this feature of saving/storing incoming numbers into the Phone Book.
Can someone please provide an answer?
To save an incoming callers number as a new contact, what you need to do is when the call is finished goto Menu > Applications > Tools > Log > Recent calls > Received calls, then long press on the number you want to save as a new contact and from the pop up menu select save to contacts.
I realise it is a very long winded way to go about things, but that's Symbian for you
Hope that helps.
Thanks, Ray. That was of gr8 help indeed.
I have the call log on the Home screen itself so probably it saves so many steps.
If you want to free up some space on your home screen you can get to the call log easily by pressing Call then the green button with the handset and arrows on it.
