    Hello,

    How do I get my Lumia 1020 to display the name and company of the contact who is calling me? I have more than 1500 contacts for whom the company name is meticulously filled. Many names are duplicates, and I can distinguish between them only when I can see the company name as well. Anybody has a solution, or a workaround? In my old blackberry, the contact name and company name used to be displayed. In my old android, there was an app which could do this.

    Help! Please!

    Raman

    Unfortunately the only way to fix this is to edit the names on all contacts...

    And if you edit them, edit them on outlook.com, not on the phone, that would take years ;)

    You could upload the company logo as their picture.

    is there an app (script maybe!) for that?

    I bet there is on iOS.... get a junk iPhone, use the app to update stuff.... then resell the phone?

    iPhone has that feature. The company name is displayed at the bottom of the contact name.

    Ouch! Sounds like a lot of work.. i will just blunder on, i guess, until MS decides to implement this feature..

    If MS provides the APIs a script (App) shouldn't be very difficult. Just go through the contacts, make a Bing picture search with the name, chose the first entry and save it to the contact. But as said, I don't know if you can access the contact informations within an app. Writing such an app shouldn't cost you more than 1 hour.

    Thanks! Saw that there was already a feature suggestion to "Customize Extra Fields on Incoming Call Screen..." Added my vote to that. If this feature is important for you, please do vote on that website.

    Won't Bing picture search also get confused by similar names? And photos will get mismatched with wrong names?

    Possible, you can make your query more accurate to get better results though. Sure u will have false positives and will have to do some manual work. But I don't think there is an app that can do it without mistakes.
