    I have just received a Lumia 950 and I like it. However it does not seem to match contacts to people with similar numbers.

    I have a contact whose name begins with M and his number is 07xx6 200200. My office number is 03xx6 200200.

    Whenever the office call it presents his name.

    I have 3 contacts whose number is 07xxx 666777 as they are all directors of the same business. I never know who is calling neither can I text two of them as the phone just recognises the contact beginning with the letter A.

    In both instances the phone seems to look at the last 8 digits of a 11 digit number and assigns the identity to the first alphabetical entry.

    Is there something I can do about this?
