Default Outbound caller ID work/personal

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know of a stable business class application that will allow me to choose which phone number is "shown" when I make outbound calls from my blackberry?

When making work related calls from my blackberry I want my customers to see/recognize my work phone number instead of my personal phone number. Of course I still want my friends and family to see my personal cell number when making personal calls.

Any suggestions?

I don't think that's yet possible.

You could pull off something like that with Google Voice but you'd only have the option to choose your cell or GV number for outbound calls (i.e. in your case you'd have to port your work number to GV or switch it to GV).

You could use SpoofApp, but you get billed for minutes by them.
