Well that does not sound like fun dev0405! Does this happen with every contact? Were they able to view these messages before? Are they blank messages or do they come in as symbols? Share the additional details needed so that I can better assist.

Thank you,

dev0405,

Weird. Now, which model Blackberry Bold is it? And when you go to your contacts do their names show up? Or is this only in the messaging app that some of your contact's names show up as numbers and symbols? For now, please launch the message app > hit the options (Blackberry symbol button) > select options > text messaging preferences > make sure "show names" is selected.

Are you using a signature in your text messages?  Any special formatting (colors, fonts?)  Background images?
