Default Caller ID

Please Login to Remove!

Why does my caller ID come up private to other cell phones and not my name or number?

Go to Phone > Options > General Options and check the "Restrict My Identity" parameter. If it is set to On, then your number will show as private.

I have a BB8800 and there is no "general options" in the menu. Any ideas where to find this?

Yes there is, just as Jeremy described. If you don't see it, you are not looking in the correct place UNDER Phone Dialer > Options.
