Default Storm "unknown" caller ID

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Blackberry storm unlocked on FIDO network.

I subscribed to caller ID and any number that calls me even if there in my address book comes up "unknown". I have already tried disabling "content protection" in security options but it didnt work.

Any suggestionson how to fix this?

Are you sure your callers aren't blocking their outgoing caller ID?

As a little test, have someone call you while your phone is not locked

Fido has "CallerID with Name Display". The name display doesn't play nice with the Storm.

You have to get Fido to remove only the "Name Display" portion, but they probably won't do this because they don't support non-Fido phones.
