    Using the Sensation, great phone by the way, but something has been annoying me since the first text I received. For some reason, the received messages not only show the contact name, but the letter "m" and the contacts phone number in quotation marks.

    Example: Kyle (M 6021234567)

    So, is there anyway to change it to where it only shows the contact name without the number included?

    As far as I know that's just part of how it is with sense. Same way on the inspire and evo i believe. If you switched to another text app like handcent or gosms you can have the contact name only.

    The "M" designates that the sms came from a mobile number, or at least that you have it listed as a mobile in your contacts list. This is information for the recipient.
