    This is a new one which I cant solve. When I receive text messages it shows everyones name. On one particular number it shows the phone number.

    I tried deleting the message, came up as number again. I deleted the contact and made a new one, still showing the number.

    Anyone had this? its bloody annoying me.

    I had this issue too and couldn't figure out how to fix it. Oh well, got rid of the watch. Problem solved.

    On the Watch app on your phone, go to the messages tab, and choose custom. This worked for me

    does the same thing happen on your iphone?

    i used to have a similar issue when i first moved abroad. the issue was related to country codes being either present or not present when stored in the contacts... could you post some more information about the number and where you are and such? [edit, not anything identifiable obviously...]

    i'm not sure that's in any way related...
