Info [Q] KitKat B506 - No caller id on incoming calls

Hi everyone,

I just bought a P6 and directly upgraded to B506 (so, for the comments that follow, I have no prior status to compare against).

What I noticed is that for all incoming calls, only the phone number is shown and not the caller id. For example, I created a contact 'John Doe' for my home phone number and placed a call. Phone number shows up, 'John Doe' does not. Same behavior when I replaced my home phone number (fixed line number) with my wife's mobile phone number.

Furthermore, when I checked the Dialer for the 'missed' call, same story: it shows the number, not the caller id.

At first, I thought that this behavior is attributed to my mobile Telco provider. Then, I downloaded and used a dialer from Play Store (Swipe Dialer Pro). Swipe Dialer's list of recent calls does show the caller id !

So, has anyone else experienced that ? Any clues on what might be causing this behavior on the stock dialer and how it can be resolved ?


Thanks in advance for your help,


Kostas
