Contact name changes to 'unknown name' during calls

Wades22
I've been here awhile

While on a call with saved contacts, I'll hear the hang up sound and then the name of the contact will change to Unknown...and the length of time of the call will restart...as if it's a new call. I'm using a Samsung 8 Edge. It happens on just about every call after 30s to 1hr... any ideas on why this happening? What is the fix?

Re: Contact name changes to 'unknown name' during calls

Hey @Wades22,

 

Thank you for taking the time to troubleshoot and provide feedback in attempting to resolve this particular matter. 

 

@Tylern798, welcome to the Rogers Community Forums! 

 

We have been receiving additional reports of some VOLTE users, particularly on S8 and S8 Plus phones, having incoming or outgoing calls with initially visible caller ID /name in the call log before reverting to "unknown caller". Our engineering team is working on a fix.

 

Please feel free to reach out to us via private message, @CommunityHelps, so we can escalate a ticket on your behalf. We'll also be sure to update this thread once we confirmed its been resolved.

If you're not familiar how private messenger works, please review THIS blog.

 

Regards,

Hello @Wades22,

 

Welcome to the Rogers Community!

 

Thank you for sharing your situation with us, this issue does seem a bit odd.

We however do want to help you shed some light on the matter, and hopefully together we can resolve it.

 

To understand the nature of the problem you're experiencing, I would need more information from you.

  • When did you first notice the issue? Was it following an OS update, for example?
  • Does this occur while you're using Wi-Fi Calling or just on a regular phone call?

Feel free to share any more relevant details you may think of with us. Smiley Wink

 

Anyone in the Community ever noticed this issue?

Hello @Wades22,

 

Thanks for providing those answers! 

 

We're still uncertain as to what could be causing this to happen. If you don't mind providing us with more information, we have a few additional questions for you:

 

  • Does it happen on all of your saved contacts or just specific contacts?
  • Do you know if the contacts on your phone are saved on the SIM Card or the internal phone memory?
  • Have you attempted a Factory Reset on your device since noticing this issue?

 Keep us posted!

It happens with every those saved contacts I speak with most. I'm not sure if all are saved to SIM or to the phone's memory. I'll need to check. I haven't done a factory reset since setting up the phone.l, however, I did an IO update this morning and noticed it happened again.

Been having the same issue with Samsung S8. Changes contacts to Unknown Name and it sometimes ends the call after it changes to unknown.

Re: Contact name changes to 'unknown name' during calls

Good afternoon and welcome to the Rogers Community Forums @Daniella19,

 

I know this is counterproductive to having the caller ID feature. Please refer to RogersCilio's post right above yours and PM us so we can add your information to the ticket.

Rogers told me they can't figure out the issue and that I would have to call them again with the case number.

I'm having the same problem with my Samsung Galaxy S8+

It happens with all contacts, incoming and outgoing calls, long calls, short calls. 

Has anyone had any luck fixing this? I finally got my phone the way I like it and don't want to have to do a factory reset.

Mine has been doing this for about 2weeks now. I'm using an S8. Not a huge deal just weird. .maybe it is in the software.

I'm having this exact same problem. I am so frustrated this is the second Samsung s8 I've had in 9 days. This needs to get resolved ASAP
