Since putting my virgin mobile sim in my iPhone will not display names on incoming calls or messages. When I look at the contacts, the numbers are spaced in a weird way.
To fix, I can change my language and region settings to something else, then back to my English/UK setting and this sorts the problem for a short while.
if I also select ‘import sim contacts’ this seems to sort the issue, but only for a few hours.
Spoke to virgin who suggested the import sim contacts thing, but as I said, this is a very short term solution. It’s very very frustrating.
Can anyone offer any help? Tried resetting the iPhone, restore, fresh install. Problem always comes back.
Longstanding problem. Won't go into the technical details but
Try this and let us know it it works
Go to: Settings -> mobile data -> SIM Applications (near bottom) -> tap "Roaming" -> tap "Select Mode"
Tap manual -> then choose National.
Usually fixes it.

Thanks for that. Just gave it a try. Switched the phone off and on again, but it’s not sorted it.
Try doing the dial assist one more time and then turn it off. Then see if it returns.
