Wow, I'm really glad I read this before I decided to try it. How lame to just have a ringtone for each caller. I could do that myself! Anyone heard anything about software that uses the voice-dialing engine to speak the name of the caller?

I figure most of the GPS software out there can read the names of streets, so why not the name on the caller id? Sure, I'm probably dreaming, since HollerID is the first application I've come across to come close. But charging me $20 to have a custom ringtone assigned to an individual? Come on. I can record my own voice saying the name, make a ringtone out of it and assign it to each person I care to have announced. But for that matter, I can also just assign a song or something that I'll recognize.

Anyway, if anyone has heard of such a beast, please do tell!
