Blocking my BB number when I call someone.
 
Is there a setting that will allow my number "not to appear" to the caller?

Sith_Apprentice 02-09-2008 09:03 AM

to specific callers? no. to all callers yes. go to the phone > menu > options > general options > restrict my identity > yes

Shaun 02-09-2008 09:03 AM

Phone App > Options > General > Restrict My Identity = Always

Sith: You have beaten me this time...

Juwaack: I have beaten you this time...

juwaack68 02-09-2008 09:03 AM

Yes. If you click on the phone icon, then go into Options -> General Options and set 'Restrict My Identity' to always.

EDIT: UGH, BOTH of you beat me too it! ;-)

last i checked it was a piece of plastic used to prop up tables when one leg is shorter than the rest... but i could be wrong, you know, they are adding new capabilities to these things every day, heck, at this point, it might actually be used for chairs too!

On a per call basis, you should be able to dial *67 + the number. That should prevent the display of your number on just that call.

Just a thought, but should you want to always prevent your info from showing to one caller, you could add the *67[Pause] to the beginning of their phone number in the address book entry.

I have my caller ID blocked with my carrier and use the *82 option to unblock for specific people in my address book. Now it is a pain that i have to have two phone book entries for the numbers to those people because if you want to also text message or MMS message them you need to have an entry without the *82 or you will be constantly editing the number every time you send a text message.

Sounds like you have yourself a suggestion for RIM... a Phone Call only prefix would be a really nice feature in some cases.

Just wanted to add, if you have a CDMA Blackberry, you would dial *67 before the number as scottjb said. If you have a GSM Blackberry, though, you would dial #31# before the number to block your #.

:) :) :) No, nothing that interesting. I use me BB for work / personal. Every once in a while, I call someone during the day and then they call me back later than night.... when I'm out and about. I don't want to fear answering my BB when I'm in a bar.

Is there anyway to show callers another number than my cell phone number as i have google grandcenteral i want users to see that number

VZWBBnewb 02-18-2008 03:23 PM

I have clients who I don't want to see my BB number when I call them, so in my Contacts list, I just type the *67 before their phone entry. So I don't have to worry about remembering every time I call them.

I wish there was a way to send calls from certain callers straight to voicemail. I know you can mute certain callers, but it would be cool if they just went straight to VM.

I think that in The States that you dial *67 to block the number regardless of carrier.

All except tmo. They use that #31#, other than that *67.
