    can anyone shed light on some weird stuff happening with my phone?

    i have a nokia 3210. i have a friend's cellphone number stored in the
    phone. if she sends sms to me, the phone doesn't recognise her number as
    one that's stored, the screen displays her number at the top of the
    message. if anyone else messages me, their stored name appears above the
    message. also in the inbox, where other people's messages will be listed
    by their stored name, hers are listed with the actual text of the message.

    she is unable to receive sms from me. there used to be no problem, but
    one day the ability to receive my messges just stopped. my phone shows
    them as sent successfully, whether i reply to one of hers or create a
    message and send to the stored details (same number, no difference).

    needless to say, her provider and mine both blame the other. but i
    wonder if the fact that my phone doesn't seem to recognise her number is
    signficant in this.

    if anyone has any interesting theories on this, i'm all ears

    Hi there,

    I had a same kind of problem (not showing the caller name)
    with my 6210 (or was it 3210, don't remember) and the
    reason was that I had the very same number stored in my
    phone twice.

    When the call came, phone just couldn't decide which name to show.

    According my understanding, 3210 uses 6 (or 7) last numbers
    of the phone number to identify the caller, if you have two almost
    identical numbers, for example 0401234567 and 0509234567
    stored under different names, in some Nokia phone models
    it will not show the caller name for either number.

    Try to find if you have your friend number stored twice.

    What comes to the problem that sms is not going through,
    I have no idea. Hopefully you will get a solution.

    BR,
    Rami

    yes, rami, i had the number in several times, each new addition was part
    of an effort to make the sms work! anyway, i've deleted all but one and
    now i'm going to wait til she sends another sms. thanks for the suggestion.

    Re: stored number not recognised

    well that fixed the problem of the caller not being recognised! thanks
    rami.

    now if i can only find out why the other person doesn't receive my sms
    ... then everything would be perfect!
