Apple 4s accidental reset (contacts/address book issue)

I have an APPLE IPHONE 4s-


Accidently hit the reset all setting button... I didn't lose anything like pictures or layouts, the only thing wrong is that my Contacts have all the names and numbers but when I text or call, in the messages and recent calls there are no names, just numbers.  All the numbers went to ********* instead of how they originially looked like +1 (***) ***-*** so I went ahead and added the +1 to all the numbers. Some are still coming up without names.


Would the best thing to do be delete each contact and retransfer from my blackberry?

There's been a plethora of posts about that issue as well as suggestions for solving it. Search around here as well as Apple's own forum for that topic before you undertake deleting and re-importing (is that a word?) them again.

I did the same thing, I used the *228 and used both option  1 program phone and 2 up grad rooming and my phone now shows the names and not just the number.  Hope this works for you.
