    Question ###Aw crap, here we go again....###

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone, stand back, beware,
    oh no......not another newbie/lurker
    asking for help.

    First off, as a forum junkie I'll offer up
    my bartending services to appease you
    HIGH-POSTERS/VETERANS. So, what
    are y'all drinking because I'm buying.


    So far I am enjoying my BB 8700c and
    am starting to understand it better
    from all the browsing and searching
    I've been doing on here. But there are
    a couple of things I haven't been able
    to figure out yet.

    They are as follows:

    #1 On an incoming call, why does my
    caller ID show the number calling me,
    but does not display the name I have
    assigned it in my addy book? How can
    I make it display the associated name
    from my addy book which corresponds
    to the number calling me?

    #2 My wife calls me from three differ-
    ent numbers. These three numbers were
    under the same contact name in my add-
    ress book. At first, I thought that having
    her numbers under the same contact in
    the address book would ring with the same
    ringtone I had assigned in the Profiles/Ex-
    ceptions menu. Apparently that didn't
    work so I created three different entries
    in the addy book for her and assigned the
    same ringtone to each individual entry.
    Well, that didn't work either. Any ideas?

    #3 How can I clear all the messages from
    a folder all at once. I'm speaking of SMS
    messages BTW.

    TIA, and the second round is on me too.

    Marshall

    You may have to disable content compression or protection...

    You can set a profile and exception for each entry to create a special tone for that person...

    a folder all at once. I'm speaking of SMS

    Go to the date and click the wheel and choose delete prior...

    I know these do not explain how to do so, and if you need help please ask...

    1. do you have the area code added to the numbers in your address book? you need to do that.

    3. open your sms folder, go to the message you want to delete. click the wheel and go to delete prior. this will delete all messages before that one


    EDIT: 3 posts at the same time....i like that

    WOW!!! You guys are quick.
    I'm a regular on a fishing forum
    and I thought we were quick
    to reply to a new topic. We got
    nothing on you folks.


    Right now I'm a bit buzzed and
    am ready to go to bed because
    I have to work tomorrow. But
    as soon as I get a few minutes
    in the AM, I will sit down and
    begin to try your suggestions.
    I'll get back to you and update.

    Friggin' awesome!!!

    Hello again everybody, I'm back
    with good news. I tried your
    suggestions and have good results
    to report.

    #1 Disabling content compression
    did the trick. Now all the calls I
    get which are in my address book
    are displaying the corresponding
    names.

    #2 Apparently this was fixed by
    proxy. Once I did the step above,
    the ringtones were matching their
    assignments. No need to create
    a new profile for each exception.
    Don't ask why - as long as it works
    how I want it to.

    #3 No brainer (DE-brainer).

    Thank you all very much for your
    very fast and correct information.
    I'll be returning to the land of wind
    and ghosts now, lurking until my
    next BB roadblock presents itself.

    Marshall

    Glad it resolved your issues. Just to note I had these issues with content protection enabled, but it was not all the time, just when it was showing a lock meaning it was encrypting content. Just some FYI for those who may have it happen sporadically
