    *82 and text messages

    When I send a text I get an error message saying invalid phone number, if I take out the *82 the message goes through, OK it's a pain but I can do that, but when they reply and I reply to them it won't go through because the phone is picking the phone number up from from my address book with the *82 in it so to reply I have to start a new massage, is there setting I have wrong or is there a work around? I am sure that I am not the only one with this problem but I have search the Forum and found very little.

    The text message apps will use the number listed as Mobile in you contacts.
    Not sure of any way around it.

    Not trying to hide I use my phone for business and personal, sometimes vendors don't want to answer (when there being bad). My personal contacts are all unblocked. And that's the one's I want to text to.

    I would unblock your phone and then block on a per contact basis.

    You can open up your number and block each call or contact just like you are unblocking them. *67 will block it.

    I thought *82 unblocked your number not blocked it?

    Well that will work. I'll have a lot of numbers to block. And most of the time I'm taking numbers from invoices but I can type *67 and then the number. I thought maybe there was a easy way to do it. Thanks

    My number is blocked all the time so when I put *82 in front of it then it's unblocked, that's how I have my personal numbers in my contacts but then you cannot text from your contacts you have to type it in.

    You could use google voice and call through your google number to those bad vendors, I suppose.. But thats not really any easier than manually blocking on a call by call basis I suppose.

    But using a google voice number has its benefits for the whole personal vs business thing. An example being able to have custom voicemail greetings based on the caller number, and being able to send certain numbers atraight to voicemail etc...it also lets you ring multiple phones from one number (the google number) so people can get in touch with you nomatter which phone your at. It doesn't replace your phone's normal number, so both your google voice number and phone number would still work at the same time.
