    New text messages doesn't show name, only show "Messaging, New Message".

    Is there an option under the text settings I need to change for it to display the name instead of "Messaging, New Message"?

    Also, my voice recognition is horribly off, a lot more than my S3. I speak into it and it skips multiple of words at a time. I checked the voice's and only female is in there.... did I get a bunk phone?

    Welcome to the forum your contacts should have been backed up once you activated your phone...did your contacts port over....as far as a setting I don't see anything like that there I just tested mines and the name pops up. Did this just stop happening?

    Thanks!

    And my contacts did not backup once i activated my phone. But, I did do the backup once I was up and running and all of my contacts are in there now from both my backup utility and gmail. This has always been happening... So maybe I need to synch some how?

    Maybe a factory reset, but before you do that try rebooting your phone and test sending a message

    I think I figured out the texting part.

    I have to go into each contact and "Mark as default" to their name.

    Kinda annoying....

    Still haven't figured out how to make my voice recognition better, though.

    I think I just figured it out. It is a setting in messages... you can click preview message in the settings. That is what I wanted.
