Whitepages Powers the T-Mobile's Name ID service

Whitepages announced it will be powering the T-Mobile's Name ID service. Built right into the native phone experience, this new Whitepages offering provides T-Mobile users with the most advanced call and text identification system on the market, based on Whitepages' analysis of over 18 billion calls and texts made by its users, as well as over 300 million phone numbers in its contact database. The enhanced T-Mobile Name ID service powered by Whitepages will debut on the new Sony Xperia(R) Z3 smartphone. T-Mobile's Name ID is a service available to customers to allow them to see the name and phone numbers of who is calling, even if they aren't in the person's address book. Starting today, the data provided by Whitepages now enables Sony Xperia(R) Z3 users with T-Mobile Name ID to also see a spam score, and a number of reports and comments from the Whitepages community for incoming calls identified as suspected spam. Consumers can also add their own comments on incoming spam calls to build out the Whitepages reputation database and help warn other users. The new Whitepages offering also enables T-Mobile users to automatically and easily identify the person, business or spammer/scammer that is calling or texting -- while the phone is still ringing -- right on the incoming call screen so they can make real-time decisions to answer the call or send it to voicemail. Features now available on the Whitepages powered T-Mobile Name ID service include: IDENTIFY; FIND; MANAGE.
