Parents Know Who’s Calling With Whitepages Caller ID

Caller ID Parent Blog

There are a lot of reasons why having caller ID on your mobile phone is simply a must. And I can’t think of any more important than receiving calls made on behalf of your kids. If you have children in after-school activities, then this situation may sound familiar…

Have you ever dropped your son and daughter off at school and gone on to accomplish the rest of your day’s work? You’ve got a well-understood schedule, so you know that your child will be in school until 3 p.m., and then they’ll stay for soccer practice until 4:30, which is when you’ll pick them up. But what happens when practice gets cancelled because Coach is sick?

Remember that phone tree you filled out at the start of the season? It’s the one you listed your cell phone number on because everyone knows that you have your Android on you at all times. Well today it’s going into full effect to alert you and the other parents that your little MVPs need to be picked up early. That’s a call you would absolutely want to take, but the likelihood of it coming from another parent’s cell phone is high. If you haven’t added their number to your phone, then they will ring through as an unknown number, and because of that, you may choose to ignore their call. Suddenly you’ve become the break in the phone tree and on top of that, you’re late to pick up your little one.

But what if you had the Whitepages Caller ID app installed on your phone? That unknown number would prepopulate with the name of the other player’s parent. You’d call the next parent on the phone tree list and be on time for pick-up. Everybody wins!

With the Whitepages Caller ID app for Android, you know who’s calling even if they’re not listed in your phone’s contacts list. On top of that, you can block specific numbers and receive spam alerts to ensure that you only take the calls from the people who matter most in your life. Download it free today and discover all the ways Caller ID makes every day easier.

Today marks the launch of the new WhitePages for Android application. In recent weeks there has been an Android explosion, and Google Android-powered phones are now available from almost every major US wireless carrier. AdMob recently noted that 20% of the smartphone market is now Android phones – that’s up from 2% just 8 months ago!

So, it’s not surprising that we’ve gotten a lot of requests to take the People Search, Business Search and Reverse Phone number search found in many of our other applications and make them available for Android phones. The new WhitePages app includes all of these features and more for free — and complements the Top 10 grossing Caller ID app that we released for Android earlier this year.
