Off-Topic: Set Own Number on BlackBerry

Ever since I got my BlackBerry smartphone, I was annoyed that the display said “My Number: Unknown number” in a number of places. I assumed that this would be automatic, just like everything else information-related on this device. However, I finally worked out how to “fix” the problem by manually setting my phone number.

Here is how (and for some reason I could not find this in the manual):

  • Go to “Options” on the home screen/main menu
  • Then to “Advanced Options”
  • Then to “SIM Card”:

  • In the dialog that comes up, set the phone number and name.

I still wonder why this was not automatic.
