Here is the issue I am hoping someone can help me with:
I have my outgoing caller ID blocked by default at the network level (cingular). On my BB privacy is turned off. When I add someone to my address book I add *82 to the phone number of anyone I want to see my number. Obviously for those I don't want to see my number I don't. On my 8700 if a person called me whose number was in my address book with the *82 added, their address book entry would be referenced and their name would show up. On the 8800 this isn't happening. If a person who appears in my address book with the *82 calls me, all I see is their number, the phone isn't referencing the address book name.
Does anyone have an idea what I can do to correct this. I have hundreds of address book entries and I really want to have the name show up for incoming calls of those in my address book but I do want to be able to restrict my outgoing ID at times.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions on this.
They did the same on the Pearl. I have spoken to RIM and the message I got back was they will look into it. The tech was surprised. He told me to call Cingular tech support about it. They said, it is part of the OS and speak to RIM. Who know if they will fix it or leave it that way.
I have added the phone number in their contact without the *82. The only problem is that when you dial from the phone log, it will dial the number without the *82.
