do you have the contact's number set as MOBILE and not home or work... Check your contact list again.

I had a similar issue but only with 1 contact. I had to go to the contact causing the problem and Edit it, and put in the "Given Name". It was somehow blank.

PS it was the only contact that I entered manually. The rest were entered by gmail / facebook.

I have to put in the first 2 letters of the name and it will pull up names that match those letters. I would like to be able to enter multiple contacts but I havn't figured out how yet .
