Blackberry Calling Card Application

Free Download

This tool should work with all new blackberrys, just leave a comment if you find it useful and works with your blackberry.


  • Download it to your PC and install using the BlackBerry desktop application from here

Initial Calling Card Setup

After installation, go to Options

a new option will appear named "Calling Card"

Select "Calling Card" option, this will take you to the calling card setup secreen

You can have upto 2 calling cards setup for your blackberry, enter calling card name followed by the calling card toll free number or local number as per your requirement, if you need to enter the PIN then enter it in the following field (or leave it blank if not required), finally the international dialing access code.

Dial using calling Card

Open your Blackbery Address Book

Select/view the contact you want to dial using the calling card feature

Click on the menu and select the calling card you wish to use to dial the number

If there are multiple phone numbers, you will be asked to choose one.

The system will then ask you to dial the calling card PIN (if you have entered a pin at the intial setup screen)

Finally, it will come up with a prompt to dial your contact number

Thats it!!!!

  • Can you modify it to use Google Voice?
    Basically what I have to do to dial manually is:
    - Dial a 10 digit phone number
    - Wait for 2 seconds
    - Dial a pin
    - Wait of 2 seconds
    - Dial the 10 digit number I want to dial followed by a #

  • Hi,
    Does this work with a cellular callback service.

  • Titas, thanks for the great app! There are two things I would like to see it do, if possible: (1) the option to dial the pound/hash sign (#) after the contact's number is dialed (preferably as an option in the configuration of the calling card, so it will do it automatically) and (2) the option to have it just dial the contact's number, rather than prompt you to have it dial (maybe with a pause command instead of a wait command).

    Suchin, you can already use Google Voice, with the exception that you have to hit the # sign manually (hence my above comment to Titas). In the calling card number field, enter a lower-case 'b' for the pause, then your PIN, then another 'b', then 2. When you enter the 'b' it will show as a P in a circle (for pause). You can also use a lower-case L ('l') for Wait, instead of pause. Then it will prompt you instead of continuing automatically after the pause.

  • Geat application I was looking for.. Works for BB 8320
    Suggestion for improvement :

    Right now can be called only from the address book in View mode. Not able to call from the number list or searched list

    Good to have more calling card support

  • Thanks Richard for your comments, in fact I did realize that I need the # option after I deployed this version, I did not go for a pause option because sometimes you really dont know how long will it take for the voice prompt to come up, may be I can give that as an option, actually I did receive lots of comments for improvement, just that I am too lazy to fix it. But I do have it in my mind maybe when I am in a good mood I may do it so check back for any updates.

  • Hey, Great app. Thank you. The ability to dial without having to hit the again would be great, if you can get to it!

  • i get a fatal error when installing ota or by bb desktop, what could be the cause?
    it would be very useful for me, especially with the hash button post dial implemented as Richard supposed.

  • What can we do to get you in a good mood? :P

    In all seriousness, for the pause option I was referring to, yes, I think that would be good to have as optional through the setup, because some calling cards work differently than others (consistency of timing, etc.). So far Google Voice seems to be pretty consistent with the timing.

  • Hi, Great application.

    Would you be prepared to make the source code available?

  • This doesn't appear to work with my AT&T calling card which needs the information in the following order

    Access number to dial
    Number to call
    Authorization code or pin

  • Titas, do you own the source code of this program? I would like to build on it.

  • I'll be using the BlaCaDa 19 free dialer until you have it's "Final number sequence" for pressing the # for google voice. The free version works for 19 calls, unless you do the battery pull feature. The pro version works contextually. (eg: anywhere there is a phone number detected by the blackberry). Although any user can just press the pound key.

  • what about a wait feature, eg wait for keypress to continue. Most phones have a 2-second pause and a "wait until keypress to continue" feature

  • Hi, I cannot make this application work in my BB Storm 2. Can you explain how to uninstall it? Thank you
