My Innjoo One and issues with international dialling prefix

Posted by Mister Mobility

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 update.

This is not a good time to be Mr. Mo.


  1. It should be fairly easy to strip the dialing prefix of Nigerian contacts, eb masse, using an Android app.

    I imagine the bulk of the stored numbers would be Nigerian ?

    It would reduce the raging migraine to a more manageable throbbing headache.

  2. I told you guys Mr Mo was going to come back to complain about the innjoo one. PS no pun intended

  3. More like it’s not a good time to be Mr Mo’s phone!

    As soon as I saw the title I remembered the previous article where you complained of the same thing. The thing is, you never know which phone will have the international dialling code problem until you use it.

    I also wonder if it’s dependent on network as well? Just a thought.
