call log not displaying contact name

this problem exists in my nokia x6 16gb... firmware is

The call log is showing up the number instead of displaying contact name

It is not the case always and it happens random. To be clear Mr A who is in my contacts calls me, his name will be displayed now but might not be displayed if he calls me again
The problem do exist while receiving a call not only with call log
In other words it shows 994809380 calling instead of displaying Mr A calling

@chandana99 : the problem is a bit different here.... suppose i have following numbers

A home : 112345667
Office : 12345678

His problem :
When he receives a call, we get A calling
It does not show A 112345667 so that he will understand where he is calling from

Comment : Nokia's s/w has so many loopholes that are not user friendly and this is one among them

My problem:
When A calls me....... it doesnt show A calling

It shows 112345667 calling which makes me think that the caller is unknown
