    Not without being rooted... Wish there was. Unless someone made an app or something, I'm pretty sure you can't.

    Rooting has become so simple, it's actually quite easy. I wouldn't downplay your tech skills so quickly. Maybe take a read over, and see whats what, and then ask questions if you're unsure. It seems a bit overwhelming at first, but once you do it, you will sit back and say wow that was easy. I am always open to help people through PM too.

    Unknown and private callers get the automatic answer then hangup by an app I use. If they want to hide their number, they don't need to talk to me.

    I didn't think most themes changed that. But yea I guess that would be the way though. Never really cared about that stuff much, just curious.

    While this does work for you, I have done a quick search on the market place and found just a few apps that will either let you hide Caller ID all together if the number is unknown, or lets you play a video of your choice while your phone is ringing, or lets you apply a picture of your choice to an unknown caller. And that only took me about 3 minutes. I entered "caller ID" into the search in marketplace.

    There's 3 options. You can use z4 root, the simplest, then there's superonclick, which is plugging it to the computer, and clicking the root button, then you can do it the extremly hard way and sbf into a root. That's an old outdated method. If you need z4 root, pm me, ill get you a link to it. Its very very simple. Yes you are going to void the warranty, but it can be undone. Its not something that verizon is going to ban you for. Its just that if your phone breaks, you need to make it unobvious that it was rooted. I can help you with that too.

    Don't use z4root if you are on gingerbread. It doesn't work!

    Yes, if he's on gb, I can walk him through the droid 3 rooting process if he's on gb. Thanks for that tip!

    i like your thinking LOLOL...since i have gingerbread now i guess i can't do the z4 root method. so superonclick involves plugging into the computer and clicking a button? none of this sbf stuff?

    Yes, its very simple. Just google superoneclick. All one word. Its a very common method. If you have any questions, ask first, before you brick your phone. My pm is tied into my phone, so ill respond quickly.

    i'm going to look into it...you may regret your kind offer to help me out though hahaha [i'm pretty competent...but am a little worried about bricking the phone. i can't afford a new phone and all i have as a back up is a LG EnV and i can't go back to a 'dumb' phone, i just cant!]

    No worries man. I'm in the same boat. I bricked a D2G 2 weeks ago and had to play the stupid game with verizon. So I cannot brick mine at all for a while, or they will figure it out. I have no back up lol! The sad part is after I got my replacement, I played with the bricked pne, I fixed it, and had to send it back. I wanted to keep it to play with, but verizon wanted a phone back. :/

    jonas i believe you are an enabler of the worst kind... i'm going to think about it and decide on it tomorrow as i'm working on a nice buzz right now and the last thing i should be doing is anything technical :blink: [i'm such a baby..i know this isn't that big of a deal you would think someone is telling me to take the phone apart and put it back together blindfolded]

    and damn that verizon, who do they think they are wanting a phone back? the nerve
