SMS messages from one contact displayed as “null”

I have a Samsung Galaxy 5. A coworker sent me a contact from his Nokia phone, which showed up as "null", and now all other SMS's from him also come through only as "null." I've tried deleting the thread, deleting the contact, turning the phone off and then on... Any help would be appreciated.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Did you add the contact again with a name after you deleted it? – kyrias Dec 3 '11 at 12:26

Try this,

delete his contact


Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Select the Messaging App

Choose 'Clear Data' and also 'Clear Cache'.

N.B. you will lose all data / txt msg's in your phone

(don't forget to write their number down to save as new afterwards!)
