We know ebony and ivory are a great match, so here’s another new app that might make life a little more easier. So let me begin by introducing WhitePages. Currently it is a free go to source for accurate information on over 200 million US adults. They have now taken their online site and made it accessible for your BlackBerry.
So let’s go over a few of the things the application is capable of. Let’s say you get an unknown caller that’s not in your phone book. We usually don’t answer these, however after the call we are able to bring up the phone list and use the option to search the WhitePages, and there it is! Reverse look up, with over 600 million mobile and unpublished numbers and works for both calls and texts.
You can update existing contact information, and use the Send/Share option as well. There are over 40 million work listings as well, so you can find someone by where they work or businesses with the WhitePages. It’s extremely convenient, no memberships, no having to pay some look up site to find it for you for a few, it’s all right there.
Now the application is $6.99 for six months of use, but if you use google or directory assistance, this may well be worth it. Each call to directory assistance is $1.50 and that does not do reverse look up or look for people in a business. So for that alone is worth the investment.
Currently the only model supported is the BlackBerry Bold, but with other models to follow shortly.
If you are interested in the WhitePages, head on over to your BlackBerry App World and give it a shot. Let us know what you think.
