    Phone/Menu/Options, General, Restrict My Identity. Set it to Always to block on all calls made.

    Also:
    123spoof - 123SPOOF Mobile is a revolutionary Blackberry application that gives you COMPLETE control over your phone calls, empowering you to change Caller ID, disguise your voice, record your calls, and more! All this is combined with seamless BlackBerry integration. Free version has Ads / Premium version price depends on minutes / use caution this app requires a credit card

    You can always dial *67 then enter the phone number and that will do it also.

    Thanks so much Neolantis ! I knew I saw it somewhere.. That app looks great I will have to give it a shot when I get some time.

    bmtenney, how do you do *67 on a cell phone? I have all my contacts programed in so I would have to manually dial each number correct?

    BTW.. Is there any apps out there that could put a shortcut to turn the "restrict my identity" feature on or off.

    This would come in handy because at work I use my cell to call customers and they almost always call my cell phone back instead of the business landline.

    It looks like from the description of 123spoof that you can change your ID. So maybe you can change the identity to the landline.

    Unfortunately that is correct lol what I have done in the past is start call hang up then add in *67 in call log. Time consuming I know...:banghead:

    Yah neo, I think that would be the perfect solution. I'm just not sure how well this program works. It seems a bit confusing but I only spent a few minutes with it.

    Hey BM, haha yah that is a bit time consuming but thank you for the suggestion =)
