iphone caller ID only showing number, no names?

My husband and I just got a couple iphones and on both phones when a person calls (even from our programmed contacts) the caller ID only shows the phone number, not the programmed contact name. Anyone know how to change this setting? Thank You!

I have had a similar occurence.
For example, if I put in a number under my contacts that says 645-1643, and the number that comes up as 603-645-1643, my iPhone won't notice that number because I don't have it set up with the 603. Same goes for the 1 in front if the area code. If I don't have it under my contacts with a 1 before the area code, my phone will not display the incoming caller's name.

I tried changing the contact number to include the 1 and area code, but it still only shows the number?
