Question [Q] Weird Stock SMS app issue, please help.


I have a weird issue with the SMS app for my HTC one (M8) as well as my friend's phone!

when I receive a message, the name of the person who sent the message to me does not show up in the sms app, instead the number is shown (basically as if the sender's number is not saved in my address book). however, after about 15-20 minutes the name will be shown.

to note, both of us have our contacts saved in Google, so all the contact addresses are synced with google.

anyone else facing the same issue?

anyone knows a possible solution??

Thanks & regards,

Maybe go into app settings for mms and contacts and delete all data to reset to default. Reboot then resynch contacts.
address book, contacts, htc one (m8), sms
