Default Number recognition on Pearl

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Folks

I have a Blackberry Pearl and am based in the UK. For some reason, when people ring me, who's numbers are in my address book, my phone does not recognise who they are.

Ie, their number comes up on my phone instead of their name....very annoying. I know it's something to do with whether the phone recognises the international dialing code for the uk (+44). Does any one know how to fix this very irritating problme?

Your help and advice most welcome.

Cheers

Scarlet

Look on your BB at Phone > Options > General Settings > Smart Dialing and confirm that you have your country code entered.

That generally will correct your issue.

Hello,

I have the same problem and had set the country code to +972 (Israel), but this doesn't help (I've posted in other thread as well).

Any suggestions?

Can it be something in the corporate level?

Thanks,
Beery

Is ur phone locked at all times, or does it happen when is unlocked too?
This will always happens when the phone is locked, so if ur phone is locked it will only show the number n not the name, I guess its a security feature..
