OS X Mavericks :: Get Messages To Show Contact Names Instead Of Phone Numbers In Notifications?

Jun 22, 2014

Originally, notifications from Messages.app would show the contact name sending the message. I'm not sure what caused it to stop, but now all notifications show up as the phone number of the contact. In the actual app, the names look fine. Is there some way to get contact names to show up again?

OS X Mavericks :: Make Messages App Show Names And Pictures By Default In Groups

Jun 25, 2014

Is there any way to make the Messages app show names and pictures by default in groups? It's kind of annoying to have to set that every time. I'm hoping Yosemite may add this option.

OS X Mavericks :: Messages App Keeps Switching From Show Pictures And Names To Just Show Pictures

Jun 22, 2014

Messages keeps switching the conversation view from "Show Names and Pictures" to just "Show Pictures". This is in the menu under: View > Messages > Show Names and Pictures. I have to change it multiple times a day, including every time I open the app from a closed state.

This is very confusing in group iMessage conversations where all the iMessages are coming from the same grey silhouette icon. The issue is only happening on my Mac mini. It's not happening on my MacBook Air. Both are running Mavericks 10.9.3...So I keep changing the setting here, but it somehow just switches back to Show Pictures only:

OS X Mavericks :: New Messages Notifications But No New Mail

Dec 6, 2014

It started occurring yesterday. I hear the notification sound but don't see the new messages in any of Mail folders. Sometimes my SpamSieve app shows a figure of messages of unknown nature, sometimes not, but nevertheless I hear the sound but don't get new messages. In Mail Preferences when moving the pointer over check-box with smith like "Enable the sound for other actions" (or whatever it sounds) a yellow commentary box briefly popped up which said that the chosen notification sound could alert about some other actions like sending a message, when neither message is received (?!!!), or there some error occurred during receiving or sort of. Is it possible to know specifically what messages couldn't make their way to my Mailbox (through Console app maybe?)?

OS X Mavericks :: Changing Contact Email To Phone?

Jun 28, 2014

I have a friend where I have a single convo with and a group convo with via iMessages. There were times where his messages were sent from his number, and other times from his email address. As you may know, on the Mac it keeps it in the same window. However, on the iPhone it'll separate it. So he unchecked his email on his iPhone. So now everything will be in one window with him on my iPhone, as well as the 3rd friend.  

But now on my Mac. I can not use the group convo to send him a message. I still receive messages from him in the window that I've had opened for the last year. But I can not use my Mac to send a message to the 2 of them, because he won't receive the message.  

With that being said, on the single convo. I was able to click his name and a little window pops open. I was able to select his phone number. It automatically switched over so my messages are now being sent to his phone number. It even displayed "iMessages sent to *phone number*". 

However, on the group message. I select his name and the little window only shows the fact that his email address is no longer registered with iMessages and asks me if I want to remove it. No matter what I do, I can not see his phone number as a selection. Nor can I permanently remove his email address from the group convo. It will disappear, but once I click out of the window then back, his email re-appears.  

I've tried quitting Messages, rebooting the Mac but I can not change his contact info in the group's convo. I don't want to delete that message just to start a new one. Unless I really have to

OS X Mavericks :: Chat Room Names Not Displayed In Messages

Sep 9, 2014

I use messages a lot with chat rooms for work.    In the example shown below, I used to see the Chat Room name in bold on the left side like Drew DuP... and

I used to have the green dot with available in the bottom left corner with my status.  Now all I see on the left hand side is a picture box with no name and the green dot/available is not there.  When I have several different chat rooms going at one time, it's hard to quickly select the one I want.  I have checked through all the preferences I can imagine and nothing has worked.

OS X Mavericks :: Show Nicknames Instead Of Full Names In Apps

Sep 2, 2014

Messages and FaceTime in OS X show full names of your contacts. I cannot find a setting to show nicknames instead. I know editing the contacts would do the job. But it would be very dodgy as nobody's first or last name is 'Mum', 'Uncle Bob' or 'Shaggy'. Is there a way to show nicknames instead of full names in Messages and FaceTime?

MacBook Air :: Stop IMessage Notifications On IPhone When Using Messages Beta On It?

Feb 16, 2012

Just downloaded it right now and it's excellent! However, I notice a possible flaw in which whenever I receive a message from someone, it will notify me on both my Mac AND my iPhone! As you might imagine, it's pretty annoying given iMessages are flying through on my Mac. I was wondering if anyone knows how to stop iPhone notifications when messaging on Mac. I hope this feature will be added in ASAP from Apple if it doesn't exist yet!

MacBook Pro :: Syncing The Contact Information From Samsung Evergreen A667 Cell Phone

Nov 11, 2010

My previous phone literally broke and I didn't back up my contacts. So I'm retyping them. I don't want to make that mistake twice.

I plugged in the phone to my MBP but I have no idea what to do.

My phone prompts me to choose Media Player, PC Studio, or Mass Storage. I don't have Media Player. So which do I pick and then what to do on the MBP?

OS X Yosemite :: Shows Contact Name In Message Notification But Not In Messages Itself

Dec 12, 2014

I have iMessage/SMS forwarding turned on on my MacBook pro. When I type a new message, it allows me to search by contact name, however when I select a contact, the name disappears and Messages only shows the contact number.  When I get a notification, the contact name shows, but the Messages window still only shows the contact number.  iCloud is turned on and contacts are syncing. 

I've seen several replies that say to go to "details" in the Message account tab, but once I enter my password there, it doesn't show me anything new.  I don't use Messages on my Mac very often, but I'd like to try to solve this issue.

OS X Mavericks :: IMessage On Mac - Notifications Are Different?

Sep 2, 2014

I recently upgraded to Mavericks, and now the iMessage notifications that I get on my Macbook Pro are different, and I'm not sure how (or if I can) change them back to before. It used to be that when I got an iMessage and was using my laptop, the Messages application would bounce on the dock and show a "1" or however many new messages I had.  

Now, with Mavericks, it doesn't bounce on the dock or show the number of new messages. It will only play the sound or display a banner if I want it to. Is there any way to get a number to show with the new messages I have, or can it not do that anymore with Mavericks??

MacBook Pro :: Recover Some Important Messages From Phone Using Disk Drill?

I am trying to recover some very important text messages from my Verizon phone and I downloaded a Mac application to help me, it's called Disk Drill. However when I connect my phone to the computer using the usb cable that came with it, my Macbook does not recognize that the phone is connected. Can I fix this and if so, how? The phone is a LG VX5500 Verizon cellphone and I do not believe that it has a SIM card. I took out the battery but it doesn't look like there is any place for a SIM card.
