Product(s) Affected:

  • BlackBerry Curve 9300
  • BlackBerry Curve 9330

When Content Protection is enabled but the Include Contacts option is set to No and the BlackBerry® smartphone receives an incoming phone call while locked, the caller's phone number is displayed but the caller's name is not displayed.
Outgoing calls display the name of the call recipient as expected.
