Have you ever gotten a call on your mobile phone you didn’t recognize and debated whether to answer the call or not? The answer is probably yes! Maybe you’ve missed a call from someone important, or answered a call from someone you didn’t want to talk to. Sure, Caller ID works on traditional phones, but if you use a mobile phone (like most people), there wasn’t much you could do about it – until now.
Caller ID by WhitePages has just been released as a new application for the T-Mobile G1 Android phone (also known as the “Google phone”). Now you can find out who’s calling, instantly. Caller ID by WhitePages will search 200 million U.S. listings and display the results in seconds. Answer the calls you want, skip the ones you don’t. You’re in control.
Here’s a short video that demonstrates how it works.
Best of all, you’ll get a whole lot more than traditional Caller ID. In addition to seeing the caller’s name instantly (if it’s listed), you can:
- See the address or city and state where the phone is registered
- Look up and display the caller’s address using Google Maps
- Get notifications for calls you miss, and store numbers in a list for later reference
- With one tap, add the caller’s name and number to your phone Contact List — and even sync with your Google Contacts account online
So how can you get it? First you need the new Google G1 Phone on T-Mobile. Once you have that, simply download our free application from the Market icon on the phone menu. Look in the Reference category, or search for WhitePages. Make sure that you are on T-Mobile’s 3G Network or have a Wi-Fi connection, and you’re good to go.
As always we welcome your feedback. If you have a G1 Phone and use our application, leave a
comment and let us know what you think!
[Update: We just launched a new and improved Caller ID by WhitePages that has more numbers to ID more calls including mobile, on demand reverse number lookup, and telemarketing alerts.]
