T-Mobile Introduces Name ID, Caller ID For Everyone

T-Mobile is proud to be the first US carrier to introduce a feature that has long been available for landline owners, caller ID. While most of, if not all of us generally save contacts by name right into our address books there are just those times when a random number calls and you aren’t sure if you want to pick up. Maybe it’s that crazy ex you’ve been avoiding or the local blockbuster calling to remind you about that late fee. Either way T-Mobile has a feature you just might want to consider.

T-Mobile’s “Name ID” service is a great add-on for those of you who see plenty of random numbers throughout the day and it’ going to come free for the first 10 days. Afterwards it will cost an additional $3.99 per month and is available right now on the Samsung Exhibit 4G and the upcoming myTouch 4G Slide.

“Before Name ID for mobile phones, deciding whether or not to answer an unfamiliar call often left customers guessing,” senior vice president of T-Mobile USA Brad Duea said in a statement. “Now Name ID allows T-Mobile customers to more easily determine which calls to answer.”

    If the comments in here are any indication, it appears T-Mobile’s Name ID feature is DOA.

    Why has this not been a standard feature years ago?

    Anyone who wants this feature more than likely has a “signal booster” stuck under their back cover.

    I wonder if this is what jacked up my incoming phone logs with T-Mo…since Tuesday all incoming calls to all four phones on my family plan are showing as NBR Unavail – even M2M and Fave Fives.  All are showing NBR Unavail and being charged against my whenever minutes.  I was on the line with T-Mo for over and hour and the third rep finally told me that there wer many people having this issue and they were opening a ticket to fix….in the meatime,  I should monitor my minutes.  :-/

    I tried call ID today with HTC Sensation, it’s not supported, can you believe that. The most advanced tomobile phone does not support little bittie caller ID.

    I think metro pcs already had it for free

  • Latinomax

    This is a stupid news.
    Metro pcs has this for long time and it’s FREE!..

    Metro pcs is the first USA carrier tp have Name ID..

    Stupid Tmobile is claiming to be the first carrier to have this and the worse thing is paid services ..

    You can get a real name caller Id for free on android application from white pagers caller id on the market ..

    T-Mobile sucks.! Worse service in my area. They don’t even have 4G and they claim to have it..!!

    If you don’t like my comments. Write me a email at : latinomax-@-gmail-com. (Erase the -lines)

    Yes I did say T-Mobile sucks because they are lying too much .. they just gelouse about Metro pcs ..

    I think the person who wrote this webpage don’t know anything about mobile phone carriers.. that is why he wrote ” T-Mobile is the first carrier to have name id” this is a poor Guy. You should learn more about this stuff before write something like this …
