MetroPCS launches Screen-it, 4.8 mil subscribers should rejoice
In a first for the US, MetroPCS, the regional carrier said to have about 4.8 million customers, will launch a new wireless caller name service, dubbed Screen-it.
With the new service, as a MetroPCS user, you will be able to see the real name of those who call you, displayed on your handset’s screen. This happens even if you don’t have the caller’s number in your address book, which is pretty cool.
Similar to what landline phones already offer for many years, the new service from MetroPCS automatically matches names to incoming phone numbers. Screen-it is provided together with TARGUSinfo, a company that seems to have a vast experience in caller ID name services.
Screen-it will be available starting this month, included in select MetroPCS packages or as an addition to other packages. There are no pricing details, though.
