    You know when u dial a number and the number is not in your contacts it says unknown in the call history. Is there a way to change this other then adding the number to your contacts.

    No, I do not believe there are any setup options or other ways to change this.

    Try this, go to Settings/Call/Phone Settings/ uncheck add unknown numbers to people, if that is what you are asking

    If you dial a number that is NOT in your contacts it is UNKNOWN to your phone.

    So... You are asking then for the number to be identified or CALLER-ID?

    There are some apps for that but I'm not sure they interact as you are dialing but operate post calling or receiving a call.

    You could always Google a number prior to calling if you are not sure who it is you are about to call, just a suggestion.

    Hope that helps.
    Happy Trails!
