I was under the impression, althogh I don't have data plan anymore, that whenever someone calls me, if that person is in my address book, it would automaticcaly show on the display (caller id) ... but it does not... am I wrong thinking that ??? Am I suppose to see who is calling me or not.. if yes.. someone tell me how to activate that option because it is annoying me ...I did the battery pool already, changed setting for the security option, i'm not on bes... I'm just not sure what to do next.. the phone is pretty much brand new and the caller id used to work when I was on the other plan... I appreciate your help.. cheers..
It doesn't work like that. When a call comes in, it will search your address book to find the contact associated with the incoming number, which doesn't get shipped to your phone if you don't have caller ID.
Regardless of what the incoming caller ID name is, it gets replaced by the associated contact name in your address book. If there are no contacts associated with the number, you'd see the name that is provided by the carrier.
BTW, what's a "battery pool"?
