    Any way to set outgoing caller ID?

    Advertisement



    Just got my first BB after several years of Windows smartphones. In WM, there's an option to select outgoing caller ID as visible to everyone, no one, or only my contacts. Can't find the equivalent on the BB....can it be done? Does it just default to showing it to everyone?

    You can show it to everyone or not but I don't think you can be visible only for your contact sorry

    Hope this helps

    You could hit *67 before each call to someone you dont want to see your number, though you probably already knew that.

    thanks for the replies....kinda what I figured. yup, I know I can *67 to block it, but I was hoping for a more global solution. oh well....it's still waaaay better than my buggy WM5 phone.

    Greetings, how about changing a previous user to a new user on the caller id. I have changed the "owner" on the device but the old person keeps showing up on the caller id even though i have set a new user up on it. Thanks RD

    rdrum,

    Have you specifically asked your carrier to change the caller id to the name you want? T Mobile took care of that for me recently (and instantly)....

    well you can go into phone, menu,options,general options... it will have a "restrict my identity"" you can hit yes or no but it will restrict it from everyone you call. hope this helps!

    SHORTCAKE is right, you can only set it to restrict your "identity" from everyone.
