Default Set ringtone for Private/Unknown/Blocked #'s

Please Login to Remove!

On my previous phone (LG VX8300) I was able to set a ringtone ("Who Can It Be Now?") to any number that came thru that didn't have a # associated with the call.

I can't figure out how to do this on my Curve 8330...

Anyone?

Thanks!

Can't do that on the BB... Assign ringtones to specific users or to the general calling population.

Sounds like a niche for a 3rd party app. At least we can extend the BB's functionality with 3rd party app. Standard phones are stuck with the features that they have out of the box.

And/or email [email address].

I bet there's a way to do this with AlertMatrix from RexWireless. I can't guarantee, but it will allow you to set different alerts for different numbers to override the profile settings and it is really quite powerful. I bet you could find a way to set a rule and come up with a different ringtone for unknown numbers.
