Default BB 7100i Caller ID

Please Login to Remove!

Hi -

Anyway to manipulate how the BB 7100i dispalys an incoming call with call ID? Specifically, I like to see the Company name and Person calling. Also, would like to see the same in my phone log. Is there a third party program out there?

I, like many, have hundreds of contacts, so just a Name display is not practical. Instead it is better to have the memory jogged by seeing the Company Name and Contact. I have used a work-around for this, which is not using the first and last name fields in the phone book, but only the Company field. In that field I put in the company name followed by the contact's name, e.g. Spacely Sprockets-George Jetson. This has worked great for both the Caller ID and phone log but because I don't use the first and last name fields in the phone directory I have lost functionality in other programs which depend on last name lookups. Most recently this happened when I tried Voice Control software which I have found to be excellent, albeit a little slow.

Would really appreciate feedback, I'm sure with all of the heavy business users out there, I can't be alone here!

Thanks much in advance!!
