Default MY number issue...

Please Login to Remove!

I just got a used Blackberry 7250 for sprint. I have it all set up and it works great cept the "My Number" is the old phone number. It rings out as my new number and it goes to the correct voicemail, but just that simple "my number" area has that old number?

any ideas?

Should i just break down and erase the thing and start anew?

I don't think it changes until you receive a call. If not, try taking the battery out before doing anything drastic. Starting new won't do anything for the number as it is pushed to the device from the service provider.

Kife,

I too got a BB 8700 G with Airtel in India a couple of days ago & continue to face this problem. I have received nearly 50 calls but no change. My service provider is working on it. Have you tried calling your voice service provider for tech assistance on the issue? If not, I'd strongly recommend that.

Regards,

Siddharth

My bberry got wiped clean and I noticed that the "my number" field was vacant after I re-installed everything. It populated itself in about a day or two.

Go to options, advanced options, sim card, and you can enter it there. I had the same problem when I ported my # in.

Default Thanks for the FYI.

I just bought a Blackberry Pearl and it has been bothering the heck out of me seeing the MyNumber area with UNKNOWN.

Thanks again,
