    Long story short is my ex's sim card was given to a friend's of mine. My ex and I are no longer together and she has been delted from outlook and a synch made her deleted from my phone. Now when my buddy calls, her name comes in for the number. When I call the number out, his name is selected. I can't figure out where her name could be. Can anyone help?

    On the SIM itself... Remember, the SIM addressbook is not synced. Check there and you will see her name.

    I never added any numbers to the SIM. The only numbers on there are the ones I can't take out.

    Then try erasing your call log.

    Did that also. I did a hard reset and wiped my phone clean and deleted the phonedb before synch and it still came in with her number.

    edited (because I misunderstood): ...I wonder if it's possible for her name to be showing up on your device because it's in his SIM card? I never heard of it working liker that, but maybe... Have your friend edit the contact list in the SIm card and see what happens.

    It's on my phone which is a treo 650. When he calls me it shows her name. She is NOT a contact in my phone anymore.

    I have to ask...you've ruled out the obvious, yes??

    Remember: "Anyone that thinks the Treo should just work right out of the box, shouldn't own a Treo..."

    Perhaps somehow her name is attached to the card itself,as strange as that sounds.We know a couple on a family plan that when either half calls our landlines-his name appears,we were told that it was because both lines are in his name in the account.

    Deleting the phonedb won't help. You need to delete the contactsDBs.

    It's actually called, "ContactsDB-PAdd".

    How are you looking? If you use a file manager, like FileZ, you'll see the above mentioned file in RAM; that file contains all of your Contacts.

    The problem is I have hard reset my phone. So it's when I synch the phone that I have the issue even though she is not a contact in Outlook. So somehow during synch her name is associated with that number somewhere.

    I was just answering the question about the name of the Contacts file; but that doesn't have anything to do with your problem.

    You created a speed-dial favorite for your ex-girlfriend - delete it or edit it with your buddy's name.

    also„if u have more than 1 person with the same phone number, contacts app can pick up the wrong name even after you dial it off the right name.
