Default Conceal "number"

Please Login to Remove!

I have noticed several phone makers have functions that allow a caller to conceal their telephone number, sending the message "Private Number" when connecting their call. Does anyone know if BB 87xx with the latest O/S (from any carrier) supports such a feature. The Restrict My Identity works, however, it does not work if a person restricts callers who block their telephone number when calling.


Thanks,

That's how the system works. You can restrict your number but the receiver can elect not to accept calls from people who restrict their number. That's just how the entire phone system works..

If you want to allow your identity to be released, you need to dial a prefix before dialing the phone number. I THINK it's *82, but you should check with your provider.

I refuse to take calls from people restricting their number.

I have a couple of buddies that block their numbers and I always tell them "I didn't know it was you calling."
