    Default Video Chat?

    Hi all,

    I am sure I know the answer to this before I ask the question.

    When making a VC call it displays my BB ID up on the recipients Playbook.

    Is there any way of changing this to something else?

    Thanks in advance. But I bet the answer is no.

    You set your video chat to either your blackberry id or your playbook pin, but those are thevonly options that I'm aware of.

    Nothing you can really do about it, although PIN rather than ID might be a good idea. But why don't you want your ID appearing?

    I have two PB’s, my daughter has commandeered one of the, which is OK.
    I have them both setup the same to make the buying of apps easy. The problem with them being set the same is that whenever either of us is VC-ing others the recipient is not sure which one of us is contacting them. The other problem is that we can’t VC each other.
    I have put the relevant PIN numbers in the Video Chat Address slot and the PIN in the PIN slot, but it still pulls up the BB Account ID (email address) and displays that on the recipients screen. It would be great just to have our names instead.

    There's a thread or two with folks sharing their bbid or PIN to chat with other pb owners. There is not address or directory with a list of all pb owners.
