Nice. I'm getting this tomorrow. New Sprint feature.

Premium Caller ID shows the name and number of the caller when they are calling you from landline, IP, or cell phone. $2.99/month

That's a first!

 

S3/S4/S5/Note4      4s/5/5c/5s/6/6+ compatible right now.

As much as I am paying sprint a month, it should come at no extra charge.

how did they get this working?  have to be on wifi or anything?

 

Nothing to do with wifi. (I am curious if it still works when you are using the Wifi calling feature though). 

 

It pulls the info from the CNAP Directory..google it, that's what I know.

Agreed. It would be nice. 

You must be overpaying with Sprint if you talking about it.  Sprint has some good plans.

 

With the new plans versus the plan I am currently on, it is a wash on the cost.  No real savings for my family.

I figured that much. I wondered how it was doing this at a start of a call, quickly enough though.  Unless data is still connected during phone ringing?

In most cases there is only a second or 2 for the info to download and show the info, and with triband devices, as the call tunneling is working to notify the phone of an incoming call, poof, there's the data.

I just contacted Sprint and was told that this is not available to customers on corporate plans.  I guess even though I want to give them more money, they will not take it.

 

:wacko:

But even when connected to EVDO or 1xRTT / roaming?

I'm sure that's wrong. I'm also sure they've prob never heard of it and know nothing about it.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.

    • You need to have Wi-Fi Calling enabled and also have made at least one phone call over Wi-Fi Calling prior to using the inflight Wi-Fi.
