    Ok so i got my iphone about a month ago, and i love it except this one problem,
    when someone calls me, even if they are in my contact book, their name wont show up.
    Lets say I had a friend in my contact book named Brian call me, lets say his number was 111-222-3334

    Well hes in my contact book and has a picture assigned to him, the whole shabang, but when he calls me, i do not see his name, nor his photo i only see "111-222-3334"
    Basically i only see phone numbers when people call me.
    How do i get it to show me their names and photos too when they call me?

    (just a note, when I call someone else, their name and photo show up)

    Make sure caller id is on.

    Settings > phone > show my caller id > on

    Just a point of note, that setting enables or disables the SENDING of your caller id information to the party you are calling.

    Try putting a 1 or +1 in front of a number and see if it shows up then. ATT has been having some issues sending caller id data to my phone occasionally. It will show up in a variety of formats that the iPhone doesn't recognize, so it just shows the number.
