Change Phone Number

I have a Blackberry Curve 9360 and am getting nuisance calls. How do I go about getting the number changed?

Many thanks.

Re: Change Phone Number

1. Your mobile provider changes your number, it's not a function within the BlackBerry itself, other than to insert a new SIM card with the new number. You start that process with your mobile provider.

 

2. You have your mobile phone number listed as your "My Mobile Provider" or carrier. Putting your phone number out on the internet on these public forums for the world to see, is not wise. To change that, at the top of this page click on My Settings > Personal Profile > Personal Information, and in the entry block for "Carrier" type the name of your mobile provider.

Posting your number like this on a public forum could be one source of the nuisance calls.

 

good luck.
