    8100 and caller ID

    Advertisement



    Considering a 8100, but doing a bit of googling brings up a few reported problems with caller ID, before i take the plunge and buy can you confirm if caller id problems have been addressed now works seemlessly. I need to be able to put a name to calls and SMS and couldnt put up with a phone where this feature is buggy. Thanks

    Never had a problem with this on my Pearl (software 4.2.1.109) so maybe this has been ironed out.

    When I first bought my Pearl I had a delay in caller ID with the factory OS. After updating OS the problem was fixed.

    Re: 8100 and caller ID

    i am currently experiancing a problem with caller id. sometimes the pop up window does not show up, and when it does, the trackball does not respond. cannot select answer or ignore. this started happening a few weeks ago. have not done anything to the phone that may cause this. trackball works fine in all other apps. running 4.2.1.107.

    No problems here with the caller ID either. Running 4.2.1.109 software if it matters.

    Problem stated in a few reviews, caller id would work either for calls or messages but not both at same time, one review said it was a massive flaw with the phone! looks like this was maybe just a pre release problem and has been solved in later OSs. Thanks everyone

    This is a known issue. It is resolved by phone -> options -> smart dialing. Fill inn the 3 options at top.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the only issue I ever heard about anything about caller Id is that on your device if you hit the call button it won't display your number. And that's an easy fix.

    Re: 8100 and caller ID

    yeah jonnyxedge: options - sim, edit phone number

    But i'm talking about called ID not showing up.. for example: uncle santa got phone number 1234,
    You've got a address book entry for Uncle Santa, and phone 1234.

    Yet your BB still don't show "uncle santa" as caller, but only phone number.

    Workarround is, phone -> options -> smart dialing , fill inn area code, countrycode and number lenght.

    Cheers.
