Say caller name
Does anyone knows about any s/w for Bold 9000 that can digitize the callerís name from the address book/

thx in advance

For what?
When they are calling/texting etc it tells you who it is?

gil1966 06-15-2009 05:25 AM

so I can hear when my BB is in my pocket the name (a digitized version )

MidnightDraven 06-15-2009 06:20 AM

I dont know of anything that does that.
you could of course record a voice note of the name, and it may then be possible to make that the ringtone.

This is a veru much needed, not included feature of vlingo. I would like this too. As for now, I just use different ringtones for people that are important

its a nice feature, the Nokia e71 does it and I got used to it.

gil1966 06-15-2009 08:47 AM

Use a free audio software (audacity/goldwave/etc) and record your own voice saying the persons name, save it as mp3 and set it as a custom ringtone. Aside from that no other way that I know of
