    Mobile Caller ID

    Just found this new app:
    Privus Mobile’s Caller ID service for cell phones displays callers’ names and numbers on the display screen for all incoming calls – not just those in your contacts. Privus Mobile stood out as an application that makes its users’ lives easier and more productive as it takes the guesswork out of incoming and missed calls.

    Info:
    Mobile Caller: Privus Mobile Named Best BlackBerry Evolution Application by Handango

    Trial download:
    Phone Filter

    I downloaded the trial version on my Storm. It works on the Tour, not supposedly on the Storm, but since I'm on the Lyricidal hybrid with a lot of Tour files, it might work.
    I only just downloaded it and haven't received a call yet (it's 2:50 AM here ), so I can't tell you if it works. What I'm doing up right now is another story.

    Got the call. It only showed your phone number.
    Did say you live in Virginia, but no name.

    Shouldn't it have shown the name registered to your phone?

    maybe it's because vzw phones don't come up with a name like alltel and sprint....they would show up on my house phone with their name when they called from their cell

    So really, the only additional thing this app is doing for me is telling me you live in Virginia, right?
