Update: Privus Mobile Updates To v4.0 With Real-Time Caller ID And Voice Announce

September 16, 2010 | By | Add a Comment

How about real-time Caller ID for BlackBerry smartphones? Does that entice you? Well the newest update to Privus Mobile does just that. Now you can see the name of almost every call as the call is coming through other than if they are sitting in your address book. You can be alerted of the caller by a voice announce feature. Check it out…

Now you can decide if it’s worth the extra effort of picking up the phone or to let it go to voicemail. It also allows hands-free use while driving, provided of course that you are wearing your bluetooth.

Here are the Privus Mobile v4.0 features:

  • Caller ID – Enables users to see the name associated with any incoming call on their BlackBerry smartphone – not just those already in the contact list
  • Text ID – Displays the name associated with incoming text messages – not just those already in the contact list
  • Voice Cue – Announces the name of callers from the user’s contact list and from Privus Mobile’s real-time Caller ID for callers not already in the contact list to allow for true hands-free operation
  • Caller Name Look-up – Enables users to look up the name associated with any telephone number through one of the world’s most comprehensive caller information databases from Accudata Technologies.

The comprehensive package costs $9.99 a month or $5.99 for a single feature app, but there is a ten day free trial to see what you think. Privus Mobile is available from Privus Mobi, BlackBerry App World, Handango, and Handmark. You can download your free trial from any of the following links:

BlackBerry App World



One quick note:

*Due to simultaneous data and voice constraints on CDMA networks, Privus Mobile will announce the caller information while ringing on BlackBerry devices compatible with 3G GSM networks such as AT&T and T-Mobile. Users on other carriers will receive the notification after the call or text message is received.
