iPad not composed of phone numbers in Contacts

I have an iPad and iPhone, both running the most recent iOS10. Both have areas set in Australia.

In Contacts on the iPhone, all phone numbers are formatted correctly and new number added automatically gets the correct formatting.

On the iPad, all telephone numbers are not formatted: just a string of numbers without spaces.

Things I've tried:

  • Power supply and switch on the iPad.
  • Reset the iPad
  • Turn off sync Contacts iCloud, remove contacts from the iPad, then re - synchronization from iCloud
  • ICloud signature, removing all of the iPad, then log in again
  • Change the region to the Austria (following in the list!) then back to the Australia

None of this worked, and phone numbers of the Contacts of the iPad are not formatted and everything gets new added number without formatting. I noticed that the "example of Format of the region" does not contain a phone number. Elsewhere defined telephone number format? If so, I have not found.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Steve =: ^)


I can add to the list of things I've tried:

  • In iTunes, restore the iPad as a new iPad and, without restoring all the data from iCloud, open contacts, add a new contact and added a phone number and the telephone number had no formatting.

I don't know what I can do next, other than to return the iPad as faulty.

    How delete/reformat phone numbers in contacts in OS X El Capitan?

    Phone numbers have spaces for example + 61 111 222 333 and when using copy + paste get rejected by my VOIP application.

    Thank you!

    I can't find a way to edit the copy to the number format in Contacts. The numbers are formatted to match the formatting of generally recognized country code. Even if you enter numbers without formatting, the display will be formatted and all what you copy will be too.

    Contacts has a Plugin architecture. The VOIP software has maybe a plugin for Contacts that allows you to dial in the label menu in the Contacts. Or, perhaps, there is a plugin that will copy the number without formatting (although, I have not found when Googling).

    You can contact the developers of VOIP software and ask them to fix their app because it should be stripping all non-numeric data in the string. He has no idea where you copy a number of (such as a Web site), and it should be able to parse the number.

  • Since the update for Sierra, contacts do not appear in Messages - just phone numbers.

    Since the update for Sierra, Messages no longer displays Contact names - only phone numbers.  No instructions on how to remedy this.  Ideas?


    Go into the Contacts application and ensure that it uses the same account synchronization like the iPhone and other devices you may be using.

    Also check the part of the accounts of the Contacts application preferences and make sure that it's only using one account.

  • View call logs, but with contact phone numbers, name, and not only

    I have to be able to show that a list of the call connects to my request.  But for thosenumbers who have a name in the address book, instead of simply to view phone numbers, I have to be able to show the name of the

    number.  (just like the native blackberry app call log done)

    Up to now the following seems to work OK, as long as the amount of data is small:

    • When the main screen is first created, walk the database by calling PIM.getInstance () .openPIMList)
    • Adds a new entry in a hash table for each unique telephone number in the database that points to the name of the contact
    • After that the Hashtable is fully charged, list of call logs
    • As the newspapers call list is displayed, phone numbers search in the hash table, replace with name when a match is found

    But when the Contact database grows, as the order of 500 entries, it takes a lot of time for

    walk from the database to generate the hash table (10 seconds), and while what the application is blocked

    and things seem stuck to the user. This must occur before the first screen is displayed and so after

    the user clicks on the icon and the first screen is being built, the user is thinking ' what's going on..?

    until the screen finally opens.

    Is there an API I can tap in which already provides this mapping for me?  (given a call number journal or by phone,

    Efficiently search the name of the contact with that phone number, if necessary).  That way I wouldn't have to build

    the hash table.

    Or, possibly, some advice on a simple signal of progress to the user while loads of app... This might be simpler than

    trying to tackle the problem with a multi-threaded approach.

    Unfortunately there is no way, I was. I tried to re - implement research of the phone application and came across this as well, as well as some other hidden implementations that are much faster then the public APIs.
    You can try to work with itemsByName, it is also not very fast, according to the number of entries you have.

    Maybe PhoneCallLogID methods can help you?

  • BlackBerry Smartphones not successfully added BB Messenger contacts / phone numbers unlisted / calls list

    Hello! I went from Cruve from BB to BB "BOLD" this weekend and while I tried to add some of my contacts from MSN messenger on my new "BOLD" of BB BB, some of them appear as accepted invitation, but instead of their name, their ID number is displayed. Whenever I send them messeges they they receive that way.

    What can I do?

    Also, I added some of my phone numbers and when I received a call from some of them, their number appeared instead of their names, as if they weren't part of my address book.

    Finally, my calls list does not appear in chronological order...

    1 - Clean your BlackBerry "BOLD", go to menu, options, security options, press menu again and wipe of the handheld.

    2 connect the old BlackBerry to BlackBerry Desktop Manager and choose the Option of switch device, program read all the information on your device, after that this request automatically to connect the new BlackBerry "BOLD" and automatically adds information about the new device, no more action.

  • For some contacts, phone numbers are not displayed


    Happy to have the Atrix on gingerbread. It solves my problem of bluetooth. now I walked into something else, and I wonder if you can help...

    1. I noticed that for some contacts who have 4 phone numbers and 2 emails, phone numbers are jamed all together in a single line, rather than a list. no idea how to solve this problem? Moreover, contacts are already subject in my mail to google contacts.

    2. how to add a voice tag to a name/contact? I found my atrix had trouble recognizing a name and always messed with other contacts. So I want to find a way to make it easier for the phone to recognize when I say "Call xxx" (somewhat unusual for some non-English names)...

    I thank very you much for your help in advance.

    Links of # in the Notes app phone are no longer assets and if I try to add a new phone # s, they are not detected as being able to compose.

  • Messages displays instead of contacts phone numbers

    Messages on my iPad displays almost every conversation by phone instead of by contact number. If I type the number at the top of a conversation I gives me the opportunity to add it to an existing contact, and I can navigate to the appropriate contact and see that the phone number is already there. Oddly enough, I have a contact which conversation shows by contact with the photo and all.

    All messages are correctly displayed by contact on my iPhone or Messages on my iMac.

    On the iPad, I went iCloud preferences and deselected 'Contacts' choose to have to remove them from the iPad and then their synchronized again. I also reset the iPad (i.e. held the Home and Power buttons until stop you it and then the Apple screen reappeared before releasing the buttons). The problem persists: Messages does not (mostly) my Contacts.

    What else can I try?

    Thanks in advance,

  • Only display messages phone numbers not names


    Big problem here.  I just download El Capitan on my iMac. In my posts, only phone numbers now appear to identify the person I receive or send messages.  How to fix this? All my other apple designs show my contact's name in the message.  Help, please?  Thank you!

  • Phone numbers of the Contacts Q10 blackBerry lost and mixed.

    Today, I discovered my Q10 (recently updated OS) had "lost" my daughters phone number in my contacts and had put his number under MY name. We do not have the same name or last name that she is married. When I try to re enter my phone number, it will take it and watch an X. There is his email, BBM, Facebook and also an X across his photo. What is going on? I see other people have trouble with contacts to lose but lose the phone numbers and phone numbers of transferrring? There may be other contact that are messed up a well but I did find others still. How can I get my daughters phone number in my contacts?

    I have not found one. Ultimately I entered my name of girls as a new contact and misspelled his last name so now that she has two entries in my contacts.

  • List of contacts from blackBerry Smartphones on bearing phone numbers?

    New to Blackberry, but I'm pretty sure when I sync all initially had my Outlook contacts and then displays my contact list and rolled on a name, only phone numbers contacts appear as contacts.  Then I could roll the correct number and dial by pressing the trackball.

    Now, I get no display of phone numbers that I ride on a contact name in the contacts list.  I have to press the trackball or enter key to view info contact set and then select the phone number.

    Have I have big fingers tweaks without knowing?  I have read the manual and searched the web and can't find any arrangement which would alter the display of the list of contacts.  Maybe I just imagined?

    Workaround.  The Act of rolling the trackball on the name of the contact and see the phone numbers of the contacts under the name apparently only works when you use the function of name search from the home screen, and not in the contacts list.

    No need to practice!

    In your FaceTime settings, what you defined as "Caller ID"?  If you have set up the continuity (continuity use to connect your iPhone, iPod touch and Mac - Apple Support) and you have the iPad set to use your iPhone phone number to initiate calls, then you will need to have your iPhone and your iPad connected on the same wifi ntetwork.

    If you set the iPad caller ID to call from, for example, your iCloud email address, then this message should disappear.
