    I think i may have come across a bug with the Z10 and wanted to share to see if anyone has experienced it. If you haven't, you can try it on your phone and see if it happens to you...Here goes: From the dial pad, dial any number lets say from 1-4 digits. So lets say i did, 23 and called. I would then go to my call log and find that instead of showing me an outgoing call of 23, it pulls up a random contact. Depending on which random numbers you dial it will show a different contact in your call log. If this is not a bug and is an easy fix, please someone share.

    You might want to include your device version and OS version. I am not able to replicate your issue.

    I'm able to duplicate this, however it's not really random...it matches numbers at the end of any contact phone number. so, for example, I dialed 456 and the log showed a contact I haven't called in years. Checking that contact I found their number ends in 456! Yes, technically a bug, but how often do we dial partial nbers that don't connect to anything?

    Do you have quick dial numbers saved in your phone somewhere? Possibly from an old BBOS device and just did a restore or transfer to your Z10? This is what the issue sounds like to me

    I have 10.0.10.85 installed on my STL100-3 Z10 and when I try to do as you have instructed, I get the following message "Unknown Application" and it does not complete any call or show up in my call log as anything.

    I tried this with a known number, my office, and just tried dialing the last 3 digits. I got a message saying that this call could not be completed as dialed, please try again.

    Yes if course! But now check your call log and see how it recorded that call...as what contact name?

    You will just see the digits if there was no match for those numbers at the end of any phone number in your contacts. I've tested that. Just like if you dial a complete number that is not in your contacts.

    It doesn't show any name, just the numbers that I dialed, 235. No contact associated with it.

    I originally thought that it was just the last 3 or 4 digits of a contact, but its not the case. If i dial any single number from 1-9 and call, a contact will still show up in the call log. I should also note that if you tried to call that contact back from the log, it won't actually call the contact but it will just dial back the digit you originally dialed. Very strange.

    Kudos to the OP for spotting this bug. The rule should be a match to last 7 digits of the number excluding any extension etc. However this is probably more difficult since not all countries use 7digit numbers... luckily not a bug that has too great an impact unless we regularly misdial numbers

    It's not so strange. The log has in fact recorded exactly the number dialed, it just tries to match a contact for easier reference. I suspect that if many contact numbers match, as would be the case for a single digit, the first one will probably display.

    Is it the 23rd contact listed in your contacts book?

    Sounds like blackberry is attempting to implement short code dialing. Not very mysterious... it should be possible to enable/disable this. It you can't then it's likely the implementation wasn't completed and theBum23 may have found an "undocumented feature". Anybody see a setting like that in your Z10?

    It seems that the numbers you enter match up with the last numbers you have of a contact in your phone book, and that's how it grabs a contact to appear in the call log. For instance if i dialed 3 and i have a contact which number ends in a 3, that's what will show in the call log. So even if you were to do 431 or 5678 or pick ANY set of numbers, it will match it up with a contact and appear in your call log.

    Yes, on my Z10 running 10.0.9.422, I can replicate this. The call log pulls a contact whose phone # ends in that random # I dialed. In this case I used 456. Bug.
