When someone phones me it just comes up as a number, no name even tho it is one of my favourites

When someone on my favourite list phones me it just comes up as the phone number not there name

Taking a guess you have a iPhone?.

If so, on your phone turn Dial Assist off, then goto > Settings > General > Language and Region and change my Region to Belgium and then back to UK.

I wonder if the problem with iPhones is down to the new SIM Cards

Maybe the poor phone is getting confused as to whether the card is British or Belgian 😂

Not sure if it has anything to do with the SIM's or not?, I have been advising changing to Belgium and back as I know it works - but maybe changing to any country and back may work.

On a Google search, it has been a long running problem worldwide for iPhone users since around 2017

These recent batches, seem to be timed with the release of iOS 13 update.
