Default Display of another number

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I would like to display another number to the people I call. I want them to call me back on another phone than the Blackberry and therefore, I do not want them to see my BB number but the one of my other phone.

Is this possible?
How?

Thanks.

Can you just forward all incoming calls to the other number? You could block your number too. Hmmm, not sure what else.

That's called Caller ID "spoofing". Search the net, you will find ways, but it won't be a fix you can do on your phone.

I think ID Spoofing is not what I need. I am surprised that this is so complicated. I know that I can change the "MY number" number into the one I want, but it is not transferred to the person I talked to.

My objective is to have only one device to call and email.

Try using a forwarding service.
