    I've been wondering this as well. Haven't really played around with it much on my phone because I figured it wasn't possible. But that'd be great if someone developed an app for this.

    Possible New Solution:Custom Ringer for "Unknown Caller ID"

    Please PM me for a possible solution which I now have working on my Storm - it's actually very simple but unavailable in any searches I have made here or elsewhere. I need a few testers. Thanks!

    Found this on CB for 83XX tried on Storm

    Went in my addy book and created 2 new contacts: Private & Unavailable. I gave each contact 3 phone numbers: private, unknown, & unavailable (had to hold the ALT key to type letters in the number fields). Assigned a ringtone for the two contacts in the address book options which automatically created the exception (I did NOT have to go to Profile & perform a separate function). It worked!



    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.
