Default caller id doesn't work on 8700g

Please Login to Remove!

For some reason whenever I get a call, it only shows the number, even though the number is in my address book. Then when I go to my call log immediately after the phone call (if I don't answer it), it will give the correct name. Why am I not getting the name for caller ID? Am I missing something? Is some setting wrong?

Thanks...

You should ask this in the 8700 forums, not the 8100 forum.

I hope you get your answer!

Do you have content encryption on? If so, when encrypted, you won't get name even if it's in your phone book.

To turn off encryption, Options/ Security Options / General Settings / Content Protection

Hope this helps.

Oops, not sure how I missed the 1. Thanks for moving this to the proper forum, NJBlackBerry.

Thanks josh816816 for the tip - that explains everything. I guess I will turn content protection off - though I suppose that makes things less secure if I happen to lose my blackberry, right?

Is the ability to have caller ID at the same time as content encryption just a feature that RIM hasn't offered yet, or is there some more permanent reason why it doesn't exist?

Thanks a bunch!
