NEW MEMBER-Series 8300 "Curve" 8330-Contact List Compromised!

Hi to all!

I am newly registered but have previously accessed this forum for various questions I have had and have been very pleased w/the results!

However, I have one that I cant find an answer to and need a prompt solution to, if any!


There is someone that is able to call my device, who's name IS in my contact list, but have the call register under another contact in my contact list (so the name that appears is not the caller's).


-I have already checked the phone #'s in the contact's info that does register when the call comes in,  to make sure the caller's cell ph# was not put in as one of the ph#'s inadvertently.

-I assume the call is originating from the caller's cell phone. I am positive on at least 1 of the calls.

-This has occurred numerous times and w/different contacts.

-The caller is AWARE he is doing this.


I feel as if my info/device has been compromised! And wonder if there is maybe a security feature I can enable that I am not aware of?! 

Can anyone help??

Hi and welcome to the forums! Smiley Happy


Sorry to hear you are having issues with that caller.  Perhaps look for a 3rd party app that will block incoming calls:  BB App World


Here's another link to a thread that talks about a specific app that may work for you. http://supportforums.blackberry.com/rim/board/message?board.id=8300&message.id=36193&query.id=145180...


Other users may have other suggestions for you too!
