Default blocking my caller ID when using bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

I am experiencing this odd phenomenon - I have have "Restrict my identity" set to "always". When I dial from my curve directly using the keypad, my caller ID info (name & number) are blocked and the receiving end see "private caller" or something like that.

HOWEVER, when I dial using a bluetooth hands free device paired to my curve (and without changing any settings), my caller ID info will show up all the time.

I read the solution offered in this post Restrict Identity not working and followed the instructions about deleting bluetooth device, rebooting by removing battery, etc. BUT my caller ID info is still showing up.

Incidentally, the bluetooth device I am using is the Hands Free Link system that came with my Acura.

Any other ideas, folks? Thanks a lot.

yep AFAIK thats the only way to restrict your number while using a bluetooth device. i am sure it can be done on a BES, but dont think so on a BIS. you can also restrict it perminantly through your carrier.

Why does it not work using the bluetooth? The phone is the one doing the calling. That doesnt make much sense.

i would have to guess on this, but the initiation of the call isnt coming from the device its being forwarded from the car. basically its going car > phone > network instead of phone > network. again this is only a guess. it would also be my guess that if the OP called using the device, went into menu and said "activate car bluetooth" the identity would still be blocked
