Question Private/Blocked Number Ringtone

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to assign a specific ringtone to private/blocked numbers?

I noticed the other day that the phone number field will accept letters. You can actually enter Unknown or Private as a telephone number.

That said, I've never tried/tested it.

Putting letters in the phone number field lets you dial the corresponding number.

Interestingly enough, last week I received a call from 'UNKNOWN' on my 8830 (and ignored it). Later I wanted to call back someone else that was in my call log and accidently clicked on the UNKNOWN one...and it displayed the actual phone number.

Oh. Yeah, um... I knew that. :D

(No I didn't). Makes sense though!
