  3. Double click on a contact where the name appears blank. The Profiles window for the contact opens.
  4. Click the Names button. The Names for window opens.
  5. Enter a name in the Known As field and click OK. The Names for window closes and the Profiles window appears.
  6. Close the Profiles window. The Contacts screen appears.
  7. Repeat Steps 2 to 5 for any other contacts with blank names. The contacts details are now updated.
