Default Setting Outbound call as "unknown"

Please Login to Remove!

I'm sure this has been mentioned here before but I was unable to find it. With my previous Motorola phone, it was easy to set my out going phone calls as "unknown" to my friends. How in the world do I do that with the Blackberry Pearl?? Any help would be greatly appriciated. Thanks in Advance

Go into the Phone (press green button) hit the menu key, select options>general options and set "Restrict My Identity" to "ALWAYS"

Go into the phone folder and hit Menu>Options>General Options>Show "My number" = NO

Good Luck!

E-

Or you can just dial *86 before the number for individual usage.


EDIT - Good Grief!! I need more coffee! I replied WAY TOO slow!
