    I tried this with the stom but I don't have the patience to get it working correctly. It would take the Alpha caracters instead of numbers and I can set the ringer to a different one but when I tried to call from a blocked phone I couldnt get the ring to work. Not sure what I am doing wrong. ANy help would be appreciated. :blackeye:
    Haven't tried any of this yet, but what about using "restricted" or "restricted number" as one of the "contacts" Just an idea

    Well, It appears to be a little different approach for the Storm and it's actually looking for different "names". Checking my Event Log after calling my storm from a Caller Id blocked phone(actually it's my Skype line), I looked at the events which had just taken place. The storm is looking for ABSENT NUMBER (in the name field) and several other possibile "names". It is also, I believe, looking for either a 10 digit number (I got it to ring differently for the skype call by using 0000123456 as the number or a " " representing no number (null). Problem is, no way to get that into the Storm's phone number field. So, maybe I've given you some ideas to play with. I got it to work once but it wouldn't hold up after the first call and reverted back to the default ringer.

    I'll try to play around with different name and number combos tonight and I'll post what I find.
