iPhone 4S and Contacts
My contacts seem to be a little whacky. In order for my calls to show the contact name, the contact needs a 1 before the number, however if I add the 1 to make the name show for an incoming call or my recent list, it breaks it in Messages.
But, when I add that 1 and I get a new SMS, it just shows the numbers without a 1 or a contact name.
I've been trying to fix this all day, and idk what else to do to fix it. I'm using iCloud to sync my contacts.
Anyone else run into these problems? Do I really have to do a factory restore?

I too am having this issue with my contacts.
For example, I gave my father a call from my contacts, which his number is listed without the 1 in the front. Then when I go to my call log, it only shows his number WITH the 1 in front.
This is very annoying as it makes my texts/calls unorganized. It would be great to know of any solutions for this.

Same issues here I got gmail and iCloud both .. Only sync 50 contact I fixed that issue by going to gmail exchange setting and un checking contact sync .. It will delete all from phone .. Then turn it back on n then I got all my contacts back .. As far as the 1 before the number issue mine does it too I have no clue .. Does anyone else have iMessage on a iPad like me ? Trying to see if having it go to phone number and email triggered this issue

I've been using iMessage today n I look at my iPad n my conversation is not there so who knows .. I think they both have to be set to go to email but when I use it on my phone who would text my email address ? Really lol I'm sure this 1 thing is a bug that will be fixed
Hopefully. The funny thing is, my Bluetooth in my car didn't care and was still able to tell me who's calling so its prolly just a bug with the caller id.
As for the sync thing, maybe you should try funambol?
