    So I go into iMessage now and all I have is a bunch of texts from phone numbers. No names. All that were names before. The very numbers are associated with contacts, too. If I go to the top and select add contact and add to existing, choose the actual name, it shows that number twice for them. I delete one and it does not show the name in iMessage. I delete the contact and add back with that very number and it still only shows the number in iMessage. WTeff!!!!

    +1.

    Look for a fix in the Hack forum or restore your device to stock firmware.

    If you restore it sans jailbreak I'd bet the problem disappears.

    Well, I've had a few people send me a test message. It comes in with name, but separate from the entry that has their number....so basically I need to delete all the old threads and start all over again...dammit!!

    Here is what I am seeing the problem is...all my contacts are listed as this (432)555-1212.
    Now when I get a text it shows +1 (432)555-1212, which is different according to the device. Never have I had it show the +1....ideas???
