    Adding numbers to Contacts

    I brought a Samsung Galaxy s2 4 days ago and i have transferred all my old contacts from my old phone (which was a blackberry) to my Samsung.

    However, on some contacts, when they text me first, a digit has been added to their number and it isn't recognised by my phone, however when i go to text this number back it 'fails' and i have to re-write the message to the original contact that is in my phonebook.

    also, i received a phone call from a contact today but instead of their name being displayed, it was a number. although, i have this contact with the SAME number in my phonebook.

    does it have anything to do with the fact that i have saved the contacts onto my sim and not onto my phone?

    any response will be appreciated

    Hey Jess, welcome to Galaxy Forums - we're delighted to have you as a member!

    On the issue of your contacts, are you entering them as Google Contacts?

    GSM Galaxy Nexus (Black) - Straight Stock

    I would try to save your contacts to Google's cloud and see how that works. I never have saved my contacts to the sim because inevitably when I transfer them to another phone some are missing, old contacts reappear, or the numbers get messed up.

    Edit: Have you tried using a different SMS application from the Market?
