The stock Messaging app from LG does not automatically show the contact name

    So I have had the LG G2, G3 & G4 and last night used my Jump! to the G5. I find though that the stock LG Messaging app does not connect to the Contacts app automatically, so instead of saying the contact name in Messaging, it only shows their phone number. Once I start the Contacts app and then restart Messaging, the contact names are shown, but if I close the Contacts app, it reverts back to the phone numbers only.

     

    Anyone else have this issue? The new Google Messaging app and Hangouts do not share this problem but I personally like the stock Messaging app the best.
