I'm not sending my phone number by default, so for those I want it to see I have *31# as a prefix. As that number doesn't work for SMS, I usually enter the phone number a second time into Pager.

Unfortunately, I can't switch to Pager (and this is only displayed when in edit mode). How can I choose to display the pager number and use it for SMS?

You can't. You might be better off entering your modified *31# number as the friend's home number, and then using their regular number as the mobile number.

  • Unfortunately that's right. Got the same answer on a Microsoft board.
