In May 2014, I wrote about how some mobiles do not display the caller IDs of contacts whose numbers you have saved with an international dialling prefix, e.g. +2348012345678. Because I save all my contacts with an international prefix, this is a big issue for me.
Well, as much as I love the Innjoo One 3G HD, it is guilty of this. What is odd is that it is a very random phenomenon on my device. It displays names for some contacts and does not for others. For example, Mrs. Mo called me this evening with an office number, and though the number is saved in my Contacts, Caller ID didn’t kick in when she called. All I saw was a raw number calling in.
It has happened a number of other times already. Even more interesting, sometimes, SMSes received from a saved contact does not reflect their name. Sigh. My beloved Innjoo One. To think that I was running away from issues created by BlackBerry 10.3.1.1779 update.
This is not a good time to be Mr. Mo.
