Default Incoming call display

I have finally changed by blackberry mobile to Samsung, yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!

However I face a weird problem on incoming calls, the screen only display the name of the person and below it the number but do not display his company name (organization details) I have looked everywhere on the settings but could not find how to show the company name.

My job requires dealing with hundreds of companies so this is a must for me since names can be repeated or forgotten but the company name is distinguished, the blackberry used to show it.

any idea? Thanks in advance

The default doesn't show it. you will need an app to change what is displayed on the lockscreen when a call comes in. I can't tell you what specific app adds it, but there are thousands of apps that modify the lockscreen.

Or you could do as I do. Smith w/abc fence as the name. It will then show.

Thanks, but when I copied my contacts from blackberry to S3 I noticed they were 508 entries so guess it will be impossible for me to edit all of them
