Ok so I just got an Android Phone (Galaxy S2) and am having an issue with caller ID. I have a bunch of family numbers stored redundantly as the person's name and also under ICE which is emergency contact info. I don't want to see ICE when they call, I want the person's name. So I'm looking for a way to tell my phone never to display the contact "ICE" on my caller ID.

Google tells me a million ways to turn my Caller ID off or turn it to numbers only, and gives me 2 million ways to block my own number but returns nothing on this particular issue.

The only thing I can think of is to remove the ICE entries. Instead, carry a paper document with emergency contact info. which would be for the use of other folks anyway. You know who your emergency contacts are and thus don't need to have them double-listed in your phone.

Thanks that actually gave me an idea. I have my medical history stored in Dropbox and have it as a PDF. I think I'll put a link to that on my home screen as a document instead of storing it as a contact.
