    Hi,

    I am new to this forum, and I must say it is an outstanding place to learn about my Pre.

    My question is, is there a way to get caller ID like land lines on our phones? My cousin has the G1 with T-Mobile, and he gets the number and name just like one would receive on a land line. I beleive he has a subscription or software download through White Pages. I must say it is a very cool feature, and I was wondering if we have access to something like this with the Pre from Sprint. Thanks

    You mean of everyone, not just contacts? That'd be cool.

    I don't believe cell networks pass the whole caller ID string... The fact that your cousin has a subscription confirms that it's probably pulling data against the online database just as a call comes in to the phone - GSM support simultaneous voice and data on 3G networks which, I believe, makes this possible.

    I agree, that would be very cool. I just wish I was able to have that too. He is able to view every call that comes in besides blocked or unknown numbers that is.
