Show My Number + Caller ID + Default Delete

Hello Blackberry gurus:

 

New owner of the Bold 9000.

 

I have three quick questions:

 

1) What is the "My Number" line that shows up at the top about?  It says "Unknown" for me.  What does it mean and how do I change it?

 

2) Is there a way to block my Called ID before I make a call?  I have that option turned in with my carrier.

 

3) When I go to delete an email it gives me three options for deleting.  How can I make the default action, i.e. highlighted by default, "From Handheld"?

 

Thanx in advance for your help.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

Question 2 answers question one. Your number is blocked by your carrier.

On the Blackberry you can press the green key, options, general options and select

restrict identity just to be sure.

Email:

Go to the messages queue, menu key options, email reconciliation. For each account

select how you want the email deleted. Handheld if one option.

Thanks,

Bifocals,

 

Thanx for the response.

 

Actually, my ID does show up on the other person's phone (Called ID) even though I have my identity set to "restricted" and "My Number" says "Unknown".  Noe sure what is going on.  Any ideas??

 

Also, in Email Reconciliation screen, what does it mean by "On conflict"..??

 

Thanx again,

Hi,

Call your carrier regarding your number.

 

On conflict mean if there is a doubt as to a message being deleted you select what function

decides. As in "on conflict the mailbox wins"
