This will solely depend on which device that you are currently using in order for me to help you to find your message Windows. If you are using an Android device, it is possible that you may have tampered with your message settings, you can download an application for texting that will display all of the information you are seeking.

When you say caller ID, I believe that you are referring to the contact number. Normally, if the person's number is not yet registered on your phone, then the number should appear on screen as Android devices do not have an option to hide the numbers you received. Possible also that the person has his phone number to be hidden as it can be requested from a network provider (For some). What you can try to do is to tap on settings, then select message properties and it should show the number there. You can also move the text message to SIM card storage and insert the SIM to an older phone (Not a smart phone) then view it that way as it normally shows the phone number, time stamp and also the date.

You can easily bypass the 80 character SMS limit on your phone by downloading a third party SMS messaging app such as Go SMS, Handcent, Messages+, etc. You can download these applications on Google Play Store for free. After downloading one of these apps, just set it as your default messaging app and that's it. The 80 character limit on your SMS messages is now gone.

This limitation is set by the phone's default messaging app along with the mobile carrier. You can easily bypass this by using a third party SMS app from the Play Store. Go ahead and install Handcent SMS from the Play Store as it allows up to 160 characters before converting the SMS to MMS. Check the app's description here:

Was it the SMS problem or my phone's Signal Reception?

Hi! I just downloaded Handcent SMS because I'm having a problem sending text messages. But it appears that the main reason is that my Samsung's signal is fluctuating. I had it rooted a week ago. It was working fine when it wasn't rooted yet although the problem then was my battery was draining fast and it lags most of the time. When I had it rooted (stock ROM to GT N7000 from SHV-E160S) the lags and the battery draining was fixed however, the signal is fluctuating thereby making it difficult to send and receive text messages. I can make calls though. Please help me how to make my phones signal to work in full bar. Thanks.

Received SMS Messages are showing senders name or number?

I have factory reset my Samsung 3 and I am not sure if my contacts are being read from the SIM card or SD card. How can I tell? When I get an SMS the senders name or number is not displayed, I only see "New Message". I assume it is because of the Contact list being used?. I have tried: Looking in the menus for a setting - but can't find it. I think it was caused by: Factory reset
