    Default text messages showing up as numbers

    I switched over from the BB world so this is my first iphone. I have had it for a month with no issues till 2 days ago i read somewhere that reset all factory settings would help with battery life....every since i did that my phone has been acting weird....

    now almost every text message comes in as phone number not the contact name and when i try to make a call from my icloud contacts it goes to this weird automated message saying to hang up and call 911 if this is an emergency.

    Has anyone else every experienced this?

    If you are on Verizon dial *228 and select option 1. Then after the call hangs up, wait a few minutes and reboot the phone.
