    I searched the forums for an answer but couldn't find any threads with this issue. Names have suddenly stopped showing when I recieve incoming calls. Only the telephone number shows. It has worked fine but then one day this changed.

    Do you know if you installed any apps lately that might have caused this issue, have you checked in your phone to make sure your contacts are still there, also have you checked in your device forum, to see if this is a bug from your phone, sometimes a Factory reset resolves most issues, but I usually try to troubleshoot more before taking drastic measures.

    Check here and see if others with your phone have had this same issue, good luck, HTC Wildfire S

    I still have this problem. I tried uninstalling recent apps and tried some other changes in contacts preferences without luck. How do I do a factory reset and what do i lose with such?

    Do you contacts sync to your google account (gmail)?
