    My husband has his office phones set with *77 which does not allow restricted numbers to ring through unless you hang up call back and start with *82 and then the number, which will call the number to show on caller ID. I tried programing *82 and the number into my phone but when I try to call using that entry it still won't go through and I get the same recording. I want to leave my phone on restricted calls but I would like to be able to call his office with my cell. Anyone know of a work around other than removing the *77 from his phone or removing the restriction on my bb?

    You might try - *82, then 1, then the area code, then the number (*8219495551212). This has worked with Nextel here in Southern CA.

    You might need to put a pause (comma) or two in there as well.
