Re: Blue & Me text message reader

Is there any way you can have the text message sender displayed as a name instead of a number?

Re: Blue & Me text message reader

If you need/want the facility of having the text messages read out then SE phones have proved to be the most compatible.

Yeah that really annoys me. I have no idea how to change it though. Probably can't!

I've noticed on some of my contacts it displays the name and some it displays the number.

I had a quick look at the contacts on the phone. And it seems that all the numbers with +44 or some other country code dont display. But the ones with out do.

That's right - ensure you prefix mobile numbers with +44 and drop the initial zero. If you've got a lot of numbers you may find it easier to use the PC Suite or a third party application such as MyPhoneExplorer (IMO its simpler than the PC Suite) from www.fjsoft.at.

Well i'm going to have to play around some more with it.
But it appears it is the numbers with out the country code ( no +44, but just the 0) that display names and not numbers for me.

Or perhaps it is just a matter of storing them all on the sim card and not the phone.

Installed the message reader yesterday and it works great with my Sony Ericsson K770i. Can't get the name to be displayed though, just the number. Doesn't matter how the number is formatted, the name doesn't show.

Should the name show with incoming calls? I've never managed to get it to work, always shows the number instead.

Re: Blue & Me text message reader

Has anybody any experience with Sony Ericsson K550i? Is it working with the message reader?
