Hide Caller ID on Blackberry 8520

January 8, 2010 · Posted in BlackBerry, Cellular Phones 

Currently we are using Blackberry 8520. It has plenty of features and very light.

It happened to be the same Blackberry as one customer’s. She asked me how to hide caller ID.

We have used other Blackberries and the way hide caller ID was the same:

“options” menu –> “general option” –> “restrict my identity.” Then you just need to chose an option there; however, the Blackberry 8520’s options seem to be changed a little bit.

For this unit’s case, you have to be in “Call Logs” first. Then “Menu” –> “options” –> “General Options” –>”Restrict My Identity” and choose your option.

Figuring out that you have to be in “Call Logs” menu is the toughest part!

Dial *67? Nope, Blackberry does not take that.

    yep so true, the hardest part is figuring out you need to be in call log using the send key…RIM documentation is poor !

    I have a blackberry curve 8520. Please note that in my phone settings “restrict my identity” is saved to “always” and “show my number” is saved to “no” but then I cannot make any calls. It restricts me from making any calls and says “identity restriction not subscribed. Turn feature off and try again”. How can I subscribe and what am I do to make calls while hiding my number so that when I dial out the receiving party cannot see my number?

    I’d contact your provider (AT&T, T-mo, Verizon, etc) for that – it could be their setting for your account.
