When answering your phone your able to view who is calling you based on your contact list. When someone calls that isnt on your contact list. It will just show a number and you are unable to really know who it is until answering. T-Mobile is trying to change that.
Cequint is the service that goes through T- Mobile to get this technology rolling. Cequint is a subsidiary of Transaction Network Services, which manages an operator-validated database of phone numbers.
Upon an incoming call, the Name ID service accesses the data through TNS and displays the name, location, and number. If the number already exists in your contact information, then it will just show up normally.
Cequint believed this to be a good idea because on landlines 80% used this service. Screening phone calls was something everyone used to do and it was way easier having a landline with true caller id. With cell phones replacing land lines, most people dont know half the time who is calling.
There is a 10 day free trial. The service will cost about 3.99 per month.
