    My boyfriend got a Samsung Galaxy S3 and recently, every time he calls me, it comes up as "my cell or Kenny". He is in my contacts as Kenny, but when he calls, it does not come up with his picture or the ringtone as I assigned to him. That wasn't too irritating, but now, weeks later, it has spread to messaging, and my conversation thread with him is called "my cell" which IS irritating.

    Is this something I can fix on my iphone, or does it have to be done on his?

    if he gave you his phone it could be he has his contacts still synced to phone. go to his number in your contacts hit edit and there may be a extra entry saying my cell.... delete this and that should fix it

    I figured it out. Somehow, a new contact was created on my phone, called my cell, with his number +1. I deleted it and everything is back to normal.
