Please Login to Remove!

hi guys!!

hope everyone is well..

had a look for an answer to this question but couldn't see one.. i used to have caller id, ie when someone called, who was in my address book, there name would come up on my screen when the phone was ringing.. now it is just the number, which isn't the best for work/friends stuff.. any ideas..

many tks, as always..

Jack, have you put content protection on your address book?

Options > Security > General Settings > Content Protection.

You are welcome... Content Protection enabled only heightens the security of your device (and causes some issues, as you see).

I only enable it when I am in time travel. I'd hate Ghegis Khan to access my BB phone book.
