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.



  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. 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
