Check if you have duplicate entries in your contacts list.

Which often happens if you have contacts saved both to sim and phone

Hi, no i have checked for this and only have single contacts. Some i have deleted and put back in if they were saved as +44 from someones text message and whilst this has solved most of the problems i still seem to get the odd rogue one that comes through displayed as number only? Its starting to nag at me now. Iv never had this problem with any of my other iphones but they were standard ones and this has only happened since going up to the plus model?

Try resetting your settings or a soft reset

Get Apple to run some checks on it in case it is faulty.

Yes @Anonymous I have just had a look...On all networks apparently. I see many customers have sent a bug report to Apple...
