Default I'm bored at work

Please Login to Remove!

I'm bored. I like how my Pearl will let me call unknown or unavailable numbers from a missed call. Ex.... All my other phones, when I would receive a call from "unknown" or "private" numbers, I would always choose Ignore because, lets face it, if I don't know who you are, and you don't want me to know what number you are calling from, I'm not going to answer. Anyways, on my Pearl, I can just click ignore but then if I want, I can go into the call log and call the number back and not only will it call the number, it will show the number its calling! No other phone I've had before would even allow me to call back and "Unknown" or "Private" number. How cool is that. Ok, somebody else post something neat about their phone now.

Are you sure? I thought on Unknown Caller or private number, the network didnt send the number with it.

Yeah that doesn't sound possible. I'll definately have to check it out though.

I always thought Unknowns are those that don't match your address book (you can call them back) while Private are blocked caller IDs. As far as I know, they don't send numbers from Private calls, otherwise, what's the point?

ok i guess what i meant to say was unavailable numbers. anyways, i was just saying that all other cell phones i have had in the past, lg, razr, toshiba, kyocera.... none would even let me dial back an unavailable number, but the Pearl does. Just an observation, that is all.
