I just got the new 4S iPhone (woohoo!).  Everything synced to this new phone, including my contacts.  However, it's doing this strange thing with the texts -- its not recognizing the phone numbers with my contacts.  So, although I have the number stored under someone's name in my phone, the text is only showing the phone number .... What can I do to change this???


I even tried saying these text messages under the contacts name, but it still won't do anything.

iPhone 4, iOS 5
