    I received a couple of text messages from Vodafone today, and the Messages app showed the sender as one of my personal contacts! It happened to be the last contact that I edited in the People app, and seems like a bug. Has anyone else seen this?

    BTW, this is on an unlocked Desire bought from mobiles.co.uk.

    I have the same issue on my Desire on contract from Orange. Whenever I get a message from Orange, it has a picture from one of my contacts! It doesn't seem to have any adverse effect or anything, just annoying. Sorry I can't offer a solution, just sharing your pain, I guess!

    hi, this is a known issue
    if any of your facebook contacts
    have the word' ask' in their 'phone number' section, they come up as vodaphone/tmobile.
    EG - My texts from Tmobile come from a contact called BEN
    this is because on BEN's facebook under his mobile number form he wrote ' just ask innit'
    and cos of the word ask.....

    so either delete that contact or unlink the contact ( if you can)

    I too have this problem on my new Desire
    Yes, a Facebook contact has "just ask me" in his mobile entry
    So I disconnected from Facebook, and the messages from Orange then changed to a contact in my gmail list.
    I don't know how it will then handle a new message.
    the research continues...
