Cell Phone w/ Talking Caller ID?

Cell Phone w/ Talking Caller ID?

PostBy: McKoker On: Thu Feb 05, 2009 9:12 am

I was told that some cell phones have a feature where the ringtone announces the phone number that is calling you. This would be an AWESOME feature for me since I can't read the text on cell phone screens.

Anyone aware of a cell phone with this feature?

Thanks

My new Motorola "Vegas" phone does that -- its in the set up to announce the number and ring the selected tone - of just announce - or just ring - of several other alert options

its for the most part a great feature because I can do a feel up of my own leg and just silence the darn thing when I know who is attempting to annoy me

Its also a dead give away when my mistress is calling during dinner :lol:

My Moto Droid phone, You can download an App that you can record any sound as a ringtone. You could then say the persons name, record it and set it as their ringtone.

Would take some work and it would only work for the poeple you know, but it would work well.

The Samsung intensity announces the contact name as you have it stored in your contacts, plus plays the selected ringtone, if the caller is not in your contact list, the phone announces the number that the call is coming from, and plays the default ring tone.
Usually free with a contract from verizon

Just seems so funny to an old guy like myself, I was brought up actually answering the phone to find out whos calling. Even worse than that we only had one phone in the house & it had a wire attached to it, you couldn`t even take it into the other room yet alone the car. The most amazing thing is the world managed to get by like that.

My Casio "Brigade" with Verizon service has that feature. I have it turned off. Very nice phone with a usable full keyboard. See:

I just bought a landline cordless that does this. The pronunciations are worth having the feature for, just in entertainment value! :lol:
