Removing My Number from Old 8830
I have an Old 8830 that was on Bell (So CDMA Phone) and now that we have switched to Telus, I am looking to get rid of my old bell 8830, The problem is, I don't want it going with my old phone number still on it. I have ported my Number to Telus, and it is working fine on my new 8830, but It still shows in the Call Log under My Number, and I can't figure out how to remove this.
I have wiped the berry, and wiped with content protection on, and everything else disapears, but my phone number is still there
can anyone help?
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ok it should be under advanced options. On my 8320 its under option sim card. But since yours is a cdma version I'm guessing its under something similar.
Call the carrier and get the MSL code for it.
Once they give you that, type in # # 7 8 6 and enter that code.
N8DBB, Close but not Cigar LOL. Actually its just ## then the MSL and then change the Phone number.
I ended up having to go through a dozen bell reps before I got one that would give me the MSL's that I needed
Thanks for you help though
True...However, doing # # 7 8 6 and then putting in the MSL would wipe the device completely of everything and reboot it into "Activation Required" mode.

To remove the phone number which is the (only?) piece of info not removed with a master wipe, do the following (Verizon-specific perhaps):
SEND ##000000 SEND
Here you will find a screen with "Mobile Directory Number" and your old phone number. Scroll to the end of the line and use backspace to delete all entries. Then type in "0" 10 times (or anything you wish, really). [If you don't perform this last step, then when the phone reboots it will revert to having your phone number manually programmed in.]
Now, repeat the same for the field listed just below as "IMSI", i.e. enter "0000000000" or whatever you want.
Then, press the trackball, scroll sown and select "Save". Phone will reset and when it is done, your phone number will be gone and the number "assigned" to the phone will be whatever you punched in above, e.g. "000-000-0000"
What's your ESN DEC? I'll get you the MSL. You'll need to go in to the CDMA service edit screen and type over your number in the top two fields.
Yes, it worked for me :-)
Guys, i've got a bberry 8830 World Edition and facing two problems:

What is it you are trying to do, nishualex?
This worked for me on Bold 9930, thanks!
