How do you hide the name of a BB messenger contact?
A friend of mine has a contact name in his BlackBerry messenger that is blank or hidden (In the contact list), however it appears normally during the BB chat. Also when you try to open the contact info (To view the PIN, status, and name) it does not allow me. (A strange error msg appears that I cant remember)

However the personís status appears in the main bb messenger screen.

He wont tell me how it's done and so far everyone I asked couldn't give me an answer. ! :x

EXAMPLE of the main contact screen:

BLANK - Working from home today

The name is completely blank (No dots or commas etc).

I want to know:

1. How can you do it?
2. Who has to change the name (The unknown contact or my friend?)
3. How can I open the contact info?
4. Can all BB do this or certain models or networks/

Additional Info:

Phone: BB Curve 8900
Network: Etisalat
Weird contact's phone or network: Unknown (He won't tell me)

Appreciate any info you can give!

I'm aware of that. However I'm a little surprised of the lack of any response. Not even a "I have no clue what the hell you're talking about" reply. Just trying to get an answer that's all.

Give people a chance. Not everyone spends 24x7 on these boards.

I've heard rumours that some people on BB Forums actually have a life and do other things like sleep, work, spend time with their families, etc. Most of the posters here seem to be from North America so you posted during prime sleep time.
