Default caller id (no address book name, only number)

Please Login to Remove!

hello everybody,

i have been wondering if anyone else have the same problem:

all my numbers in address book are in international format (+373681555xx)

when someone from within the country calls me, the display shows 0681555xx only (no name), but the number in question IS in my address book as +373681555xx!

how do i get the name (not the number) of the caller to be displayed?

why does my state of the art BB does not understand that it is actually the same number and display the name associated with it?

ps any 10 bucks nokia can do it.

pss i have tried the faq regarding the caller id already - no luck

You have to set the country code properly.
Are you sure it is set? I see that you said you tried the FAQ.

Go into the Phone Application (press the Green button) and then hit the Menu key
Select Options and then Smart Dialing

Set your country code to the appropriate code.

Do I win 10 bucks because the BB can do it also?

Call Log xxx8212;> Menu xxx8212;> Options xxx8212;> Smart Dialing
set your right Country Code,
in National Number Lenhth try different values

I had the same problem with my carrier (MTS Russia).
My numbers format is +7 9161234567. When i recieved calls i saw 8 9161234567 and no names. My country code was right, but only when i set "National Number Lenhth" to 10, i've got names instead of numbers

ok, B_M_F - you feel my pain. by the way, welcome to the forum!

i have +373 for country code and i believe it is correct
i have 8 for length, but will try different values here. (a normal number in MD is +373 681 555 12 - does it mean i have to set the length to 8?)

thank you for your input

but the faq says "number of digits excluding the country code" =8
also the guy in russia done the way the faq says and he says it works.

so i think you are wrong here.

anyway i have tried so far:
8,9,10,11 digits.

the only thing i cannot do is drop the plus in the contact numbers, although the faq says i should do this.

Just trying to give you a suggestion of 11, since nothing seems to work right for you. Go back to 8, set the country code to 373.

Maybe reboot the BB afterwards.

Why can't you remove the + in the contact numbers? I believe you will need to do so.

Can you send me the cheap nokia then?

because i want to be able to use my address book on any device. i have started this address book when i was 18, migrating to other devices was easy (phones, notebooks).
why should i change every single entry in my address book if i am to use a BB? let RIM change their software, since it is their mistake. i am not the only one stugling.

ok, i done a full power off, nothing changed. i have read on other forums that people have exactly the same problem as mine, but the smart dialing settings helped in those cases.

the worse thing is that BB will charge for a call to a helpline. i mean i try to help them remove a mistake in their device and make better devices and they will charge me for that!

Speaking of caller ID. Why don't mobile phones show the name of the number calling you if it's not in your contacts like a landline does? If the technology doesn't exsist then it's long over due.

Don't mean to, how do you say? Ah, yes threadjack, but I didn't wanna seem like a thread starting whore.

You are one of very few struggling. You need to try all these solutions with the '+' removed from you address book. I believe you will see it work. Because you refuse to remove the '+' from the Address Book, don't get all worked up about what RIM should do.

Do you have "content protection" enabled on your BB, at Options > Security?

It depends on your carrier and/or if they offer it. I have call display on Rogers.

To the OP: in Security settings, is content protection enabled? That said, I believe you have to get rid of the "+"'s, as the others have said.

Edit: woops, JS beat me to it, I guess I took my time on that reply hehe. All you have to do is try ONE number and see if it fixes it, and THEN decide whether you want to change all your contacts if it does fix it.

Edit2: you should be able to see also that since you put +373 in smart dialing, that the + in your phone numbers is redundant.

This is a no-brainer, now that you have described what you will and will not do. I'm betting RIM won't change its software just for you.

And, yes, perhaps the BlackBerry is not the device for you, it is not for everyone.

You really think that RIM wouldn't listen to the obviously superior wisdom of someone who has just gotten one of their devices? Yes, his decision is easy; at least he knows his priorities and will move on.

Listen yes. Jump to his immediate need, doubtful.

In all honesty, that is. If the user wishes us to mislead him, I would tell him otherwise.
