T-Mobile Joins The StarStar Me Ranks, Lets You Use Your Name Instead Of Phone Number

Zoove, the folks behind the StarStar Me platform announced the availability of their StarStar service as now available to T-Mobile customers nationwide. “StarStar Me offers customers a personalized mobile phone number such as a name or favorite word and the ability to manage calls through the StarStar Me app.”

In other words, you can dial **David and find me on the other end, metaphorically speaking that is. The service does work across smartphones and features phones, which is an added benefit.

“We are very excited to offer the StarStar Me service to T-Mobile customers, who we believe will really appreciate an easy and affordable way to stay connected with friends, family and colleagues,” said Joe Gillespie, CEO of Zoove. “With two-thirds of smartphone users having downloaded social networking apps to their phones, there’s a rapidly growing trend in today’s on-the-go lifestyle to extend our personal communications and identity into the digital realm via our mobile phones.”

To sign up for StarStar Me, T-Mobile customers need only dial **Me (**63) on their phone, or visit http://t-mobile.starstar.me. The $2.99 monthly charge will appear on customers monthly T-Mobile statements.

T-Mobile, StarStar

    lol wut.

    On topic: I don’t see how this makes communicating easier for anyone.

    • AndroidProfit

      LOL ya no doubt!

    • Edward351

      Yeah I haven’t dialed a number to call someone on my cell phone in years. Everything is redial, callback, phonebook, or from the web.

    • Turo

      Yeah, I don’t see how hitting **VANITYTEXT is easier than just dialing a number. Maybe easier to remember though?

    This is great. I’d do it. I’d use Ironzey or RonZ. For $2.99, I’ll pass. I’m just vain not rich and vain.

    So now it’s time for the **boom. As in I rush to buy up all the popular brand names and then resell them for a 200,000% profit.

    • AndroidProfit

      You do realize that is no longer legal?

  • Bratty

    Now all we need are funky names and bad spellers. What could go wrong?!

  • Nearmsp

    In the days when one had to remember the phone number this would have been useful. Now with a phone directory why would anyone need to remember a star star name of a contact.

  • http://about.me/daylondeon Deacon

    i’ll just stick to my contacts although i guess it’s sort of interesting to some.

  • kev2684

    the lack of 4G LTE news is disturbing.

  • timmyjoe42

    Wait…this is something that people actually pay for?

    • http://about.me/daylondeon Deacon

      YES.

  • 21stNow

    So what happens when two people named Tasha want to use this service? Does one have to come up with an alias, like a screen name?
