Question Caller ID questions

Please Login to Remove!

ok first and foremost, is there a way to have your notes about a contact show up when calling? it's just i don't want people to look at my contacts and see certain notes like "crazy SOB..don't answer!!" I just want the name to show up when scrolling through the address book, but have that warning show up they call...any way? any ideas?

oh and then on a less important note, how any way to change background of caller id (that default map of the world)?? k let me know! i really wanna have my little warning notes pop up!

No way to change the background. It's default. I barely even see the map. I just look at the name/number of the caller.

As for notes, the only pieces of information that will show up on caller id is name and company of the contact. Thus if you have some particular notes like "SOB...don't answer" I say just put that piece of info in the company field. That way it'll show up on caller ID. Other than that, there's not much else you can do. Maybe you can just remember not to answer the phone from certain people?

You could make little jpeg images and make that the photo of the caller in your address book!!!

A little rectangle that says

CRAZY
SOB
DON'T
ANSWER

Where their face should be!!

Just a brainstorm thought!

I think I might make one for my ex-wife.

It would be inappropriate for me to post what it would say.

there has to be one part of the bedroom olympics that she was better than the rest at so you could make up a code word for that.

e.g. one of my ex girlfriends was brilliant at doing a certain thing so i call her the undercover journalist [Deep TŁ$%^t]

a more serious solution could be to create filters in your address book and thus
for people you never ever want to pick up to then you could name that filter "always answermachine" or something and put them in that category.

thus when they ring or someone wants to ring them it shows up when you highlight them in the address book.

my stepsons father was named as and ars*h/&e in my categories until my stepson wanted to use my phone to call him and then i realised that he would see his dad's name with a profile of ars*h/&e
