This is a royal pain, in my opinion.

You can't.

Each person's phone has the CB number populated on their device. They can clear the field and you won't get it. On other regular phones, you can delete the value in there and it stays gone indefinitely.

HOWEVER, with every Blackberry I've owned (all the way back to a 7250 and everything in between), the CB number field repopulates when you: A) Power cycle the phone with a battery pull B) Restart the phone when prompted via a software install or uninstall C) Do a reprogram/PRL update via *228.
