    It definitely has something to do with Skype. The only workaround that worked for me was to disable contact sync between People and Skype.

    Guys, I had a nokia lumia 950 and it's a really poor phone. I had a huge amount of lag errors with this phone, but I had money and I stupidly could not buy another one . As a result, the last straw was that I added contacts, it turned out that there is a limit of 1010 numbers. I do not know who came up with this number, but given that I believe in numerology and the meaning of mystical numbers, it seems to me that this is some kind of strange phone. Anyway, as I found out on https://www.sunsigns.org/angel-number-1010-meaning/ the number 1010 encourages us to stay optimistic in everything and try to achieve success, go further. That's why it was the last straw and I decided to change this phone and bought a galaxy s10 . In addition, the windows phone operating system completely died and I stupidly had no other choice.

    I don't really use WhatsApp, but doesn't it collect contact information (i.e. their name) from the contact list on your SIM card? For example, if the contact is not on your SIM card you get just the phone number. It may be that?

    I never used WhatsApp on Windows phone because I had moved on before I used WhatsApp. However, on iPhone and Android it gets the name from your contact list, whether it's on the SIM (I think, I don't use the SIM to store contacts), Apple contacts, or Google contacts. I moved from Android to iPhone recently, and I use my Google contacts. WhatsApp uses Google contacts on iPhone too.
