    Looking for hack to display caller ID when phone is locked

    Advertisement



    Hello fellow stackers. Here at work we have a policy setup up so out bb's lock after 10 minutes. When that happens and the phone rings it will not display a name it only shows the number. Is there a hack out there that will take care of that.
    Also, when I receive emails that have an image pasted in that email I only get the word image and not the actual image itself. Do I need to buy the software to resolve that issue or is there another hack out there for that.


    thanks in advanced.

    It may be because I have numbers in my address book, but with my phone locked I still get names and numbers when I get a call. Hopefully the 8100 isn't much different?

    when my phone is locked and i receive a call, it will show both the image and the number of the person who is calling.

    for the image on the email, click the menu key and then scroll to retrieve now, or open attachment.

    Re: Looking for hack to display caller ID when phone is locked

    If you got an auto lock on without using a 3rd party application, most likely means you got content protection on to include address book. Just hit the option to NOT include address book and it should start showing names and pictures even after locked.

    As far as email goes I'm not sure why its not showing the image...have you tried scrolling down to the word, hitting menu and scrolling to "download attachment"?

    Hope that helps...

    In security Options under Content Protection Change Include Address book to NO.

    If someone gets you phone that can't view the addres book anyways with out the password.

    Thanks for the replies. The option to not include Address book fixed it. Thanks for all the replies.

    You guys rock! I have been wanting the same thing as m1tul, but with your solution I realized that this just might allow custom ringtones to also ring through. AND IT DID!

    Thanks m1tul for asking the right question and absolved and DesertBlade for the solution!!
