Is this a new issue or have the BB always shown unknown?

Sounds like an issue w/your SIM card.

Go to settings> advanced settings> sim card (for 8700) and see if your phone number is displayed correctly, if not, edit the setting and hopefully it works. You may need to reset your device before it will show correctly.

We have set up some bb's that show this. Typically the number will appear after someone else has called the phone, then magically it appears.

Is it a relatively new line? This isn't uncommon for new or recently new activations.
