Display Text/Phone Info on Home Screen

I have a BB Curve 8310 and wanted to know how I can have the phone's number and my name displayed on the home screen? Sorry, I'm new to the BB world and use the help.

 

Thanks!

Re: Display Text/Phone Info on Home Screen

If you mean Owner Information, you can access it as follows:

Options -> Owner Information -> There you can set the text you want (Number and Name).

Well it displays it when you lock the device using the KeyLock.

Re: Display Text/Phone Info on Home Screen

JoeTech,

Just a thought but I put my home number on the screen under my name. I travel alot and if I lose it, some kind soul could get ahold of me for return.
