Sprint to Pre-Install Privus Mobile Caller ID Features

Privus Mobile, who has offered a paid caller ID service via the Market for quite a while, announced a partnership with Sprint that will bring Privus’ features to all of Sprint’s Android handsets.

Sprint’s Android phones will include Privus’ Caller ID, Voice Announce, Text ID and Reverse Caller Lookup. This caller ID goes beyond what’s usually found on cell phones, and shows the names of callers (and texters) regardless of whether the person is in the phone’s contact list. Voice Announce provides text-to-speech of the caller’s name for hands-free use while driving.

For those not on Sprint, Privus Mobile‘s app is available in the Android Market.

    Is this for existing customers or new phone? I don’t see in market under Sprint. I see the $1.95 ver in open market.

      I *believe* it’s going to be pre-installed going forward, but the press release wasn’t especially clear about that– so I guess I ended up being unclear about it, too.

        I’m not sure exactly how it works, but it IS pre-installed on my Samsung Replenish android phone and I have Sprint service. It keeps asking me to register though. :P

    Great. Another app pushed as an upgrade to the EVO that will likely reduce performance and drain the already anemic battery life. Meanwhile, actual firmware bugs remain unfixed.

    the PrivusMobil reg screen keeps coming up requesting me to register but I can not seem to figure out how to cancel the registration. I do not want this app, how do I get opt out?

        Thank you so very much!!!! This stupid thing has been popping up all week and bugging the crap out of me!!! Never even thought it would be in apps already and I would have to uninstall something I didn’t install. Thanks again!!

    Good morning, so how do I keep the pop up registration from coming up and actually put it to use. I like the idea that it will announce the incoming calls when I am driving or doing anything at the moment when a call comes in…  DaisyG
