Re: active phone number

hmm...What is your exact query? How to change the display of your phone no. or activating BIS?


For activating BIS you need to subscribe BlackBerry data plan from your mobile operator. without this data plan you won't be able to configure your mobile no. for emails or other services.


And for changing mobile no. display you need to go to Options > Advanced Options > SIM Card > click Menu and select Edit SIM Phone No. > now change as required.
