    I am using a HTC Legend on Froyo 2.3 (non-rooted) on Warid Telecom, Pakistan.

    The thing is that I have a few contacts having the same phone number but different area code (xxx-xxxx is same)

    A: 300-xxx-xxxx
    B: 301-xxx-xxxx
    C: 321-xxx-xxxx
    D: 322-xxx-xxxx

    The problem is that the phone keeps on confusing between contact B and C. Outgoing calls are okay, because I can see the number when i select the contact, but incoming and missed calls get mixed up.

    the phone displays C's picture when B is calling. and the incoming text message from B would show up as C and if i reply, the message goes to the wrong person...

    i have tried adding country code, but that does not change anything...

    contacts A and D are totally fine and no mixup has ever been reported...

    Any one have any ideas???

    that sounds very strange, I have a similar problem where I have my parents listed individually with their mobile numbers and then they both have their home number, which I also have listed seperatly. Whenever I call that home number it displays my Dad's picture etc.

    Could it be that perhaps you have one of the numbers accidentally listed as a 2nd number on the other contact?

    Other than that I can't think why it would od that
