Ask Different is a question and answer site for power users of Apple hardware and software. Is there a subscription site or iPhone application for changing caller id or caller id spoofing? Are you looking to reliably use the same "different" number or be able to select a new number with ease (on a case by case basis)? GEdgar this is what I want, in fact I have two numbers one of them ables me to make free local mobiles and landlines but the other one is too expensive so I want to make call divert from expensive one to cheap one to receive all calls cause there is a feature in the expensive one which its calling 3 mobile numbers for free and then I will active call divert from expensive one to cheap one. If you're eligible for Google Voice, you can sign up for an alternate phone number, place a call from the web with your Google Voice account, and Google Voice will call the number you want to dial as well as your phone. Not the answer you're looking for?Browse other questions tagged iphone applications websites voip or ask your own question. How should I handle a highway patrolman who stops me occasionally to give incorrect instructions about my riding duties?
In a formal paper, should I censor "brainf**k", the name of a programming language? We've all had this happen: your phone rings and the caller ID shows only a number because the contact isn't in your address book.
Clearly this application operated in somewhat of a gray area; would you want your contact information shared with every user of the service?
Personal and Confidential Information: We don't allow unauthorized publishing or disclosure of people's private and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, driver's and other license numbers, or any other information that is not publicly accessible.
So how about when the phone company indicates my name on land line caller ID (and makes me pay to opt out). Okay, then why isn't the cell companies passing the name along with a number to the cell phone?
But knowing they are a small company, one hacker could steal quite a bit of contact information just by getting access to their database. I agree they are small, and they could get into, However I also dont understand what getting a list of names and phone numbers are going to do? Totally agree.I'm not like the rest of the crowd who is super scared or paranoid about every little detail.
Yeah that's all well and good but you know the one major difference with everything you mentioned and this app? You really think that NONE of the companies that you've given your info to have sold it off? Thats fine, you can share your name and number and other information all over the internet as much as you want. The white pages do not have cell phone numbers unless you want them to (at least not in my country).
You're entitled to your belief, and you've even chose the winning team, but I think that if everyone's info is already out there, that it should be used for the greater good of telecommunications. I agree that it would be nice to have every number out in the open, but i also choose to respect that some people choose not to have that.
Although when I call a landline with caller ID from my cell, I don't think my name shows up anyway.
In Poland we are asked beforehand about being published in publicly available list that you can call and find phone numbers. Many landlines stopped sending the name with cell phones because cell phones didn't display the published names.
Part of this is also because it costs the phone company something like $1 for every 100 names looked up that are not in its system. If all the equipment (sometimes a dozen switches) the call is connected through is new enough, the name can be sent with the call in real time. The only way person c gets person a's number from person b is when person a calls person c. I would also like to point out in the example above, His wife was calling the other person! ProductFred doesn't want his number and name on a server somewhere that pops up when he calls a friend. Well, since the only time your information would be shared, would be if YOU call some party using your telephone number.
If your wife is so concerned her name doesn't appear on my phone, just have her type the equivalent of (*70, the POTS code that dates back 30, 40? If I regressed to childhood and made Bart Simpson style phone pranks I'd make use of this simple feature. I will probably buy myself new phone this year, though I may also end up waiting until 2017 (or longer). I already bought myself a new phone this year, and don't plan on upgrading again this year. I already bought myself a new phone this year, but I may end buying another before the year ends. Once Skype's infuriatingly slow page loads the caller ID page, you'll see the phone number that Skype is currently displaying to the people you call.

You can click on the "Change Number" link to change the number to something new, or you can click on "Deactivate Caller ID" to stop Skype from showing your personal phone number. Also, land line users will sometimes see "Skype Caller" on their caller ID name display, especially when you've disabled your caller ID with Skype.
You'll be presented with a drop-down box showing all of the numbers that you've verified and saved that you can use for your caller ID.
You can add numbers to your list of possible caller IDs, but the numbers you choose have to be able to receive text messages and you have to have access to the phone so you can read those text messages. Choose the country your mobile number is located in, type in the area code and number, then click on "Verify Number." In a few seconds, you'll receive a text message from Skype like the one below. Enter the code that was texted to you and prepare for a bit of disappointment because Skype will make you wait a full 24 hours before you can start using your new caller ID. So why have I created a tutorial that shows you how to do things that any Skype user should be able to figure out themselves? We all know that spoofing caller ID can be really useful, both in making prank calls and social engineering information from people. Imagine the hilarity of all of your prank victims calling up some completely random person who you tricked into reading a code you had texted to them. Hi rbcp just letting you know i am plagarizing some (well most) of this tutorial or a guide I am doing on doxing.
I have now managed to get my Skype caller display to show my number instead of International or Withheld on most calls. Here’s a page full of PLA interviews, newspaper and magazines clippings, and television appearances.
Join the other countless businesses that are saving time and money by freeing up their phone lines!
Note: The Format Options page is fairly complicated, and most users won't need to change the settings. The Format Options page determines how phone numbers are formatted for display and how they are interpreted when received as caller information. When used for generating a formatted phone number for display, the raw phone number (as displayed in the Contact list) is matched to a format using the rules on this page. When used for interpreting phone numbers, the raw phone number (as displayed in the Contact list) is matched to a format using the rules on this page.
When formatting phone numbers for display, the special characters are replaced with the next digit in the raw phone number. In addition to the special characters listed above, 'F' is an extra-special character that causes the digit in its place to be removed from the phone number. If the Conditions for a rule evaluate to true, the rule is used for formatting or interpreting the phone number. Look at the included rules and conditions as a guide to developing your own rules and conditions. If you don't know how many digits are in the raw phone number, add the call to the Contact list. Note: When first run, Ascendis Caller ID uses the initial location created in the Phone and Modem Options Control Panel to determine which country's phone number formats to use. By default, the caller ID is set to this phone number, but lots of people have plenty of reasons they want to change it. In other words I want to call someone, but I want to change my number (for example 000000 or 111111). While the potential value of a crowd sourced caller ID isn't difficult to see, the actual implementation was just shady. My phone number and who I share it with is my personal business, and I'm happy that Google is doing its part to keep it that way. But doing the same thing with every number you have in your contacts list on your phone is not okay.
And by using an app like this one, you make that choice for everyone in your contacts list. Is there a reason there has never been a central database of cellphone numbers like there is with land lines?
That means they lokup the information in a national database put out by the phone companies. An app like this would not even be POSSIBLE in webOS because the OS protects private data like this from other apps.
I use mr number and have no use for names in other folks address books from their cell phones.
Sure they want to honor all the privacy of their customers unless it's Google taking the private information and using it to sell things to you OR TO SELL THAT INFORMATION TO ANY OTHER ENTITY WILLING TO PAY! If you only knew how much information Google already has in their databases on almost every american; you people would get off your duffs and call your congressperson to get immediate action (which for congress means at least 2 years). But why waste your own money on a prepaid cell phone when you can simply confirm a cell phone store's display phone to use on your Skype? As I mentioned before, you can send these codes to any number that receives texts, such as Google Voice, Voxox, etc. You'd have to be a really awful friend to do this, but you could borrow your friend's cell phone for a few seconds to write down the Skype confirmation code from it. I have given credit where credit is due and have placed links in the PDF to as well as direct links to the tutorial itself.
But I suspect our national phone service tries to block showing my number, since many people like me refuse to answer hidden calls.

Turns out it's either someone you don't want to talk to, a wrong number, a bill collector, or some other person you'd have rather avoided.
The app had a feature called crowd sourced caller ID, which - get this - shared your entire address book with other Mr. If, say, my wife (whom you've never met) tried to call you, her name would show up on your caller ID. It should be up to each user of the service to upload their own information, not take it upon themselves to share the information of friends, colleagues, co-workers, family members, or whoever else may be stored in their phone.
In a post on their official blog, they said that "Android isn't as open as [they] thought it was," and that "you need permission to innovate." But, this isn't a matter of being open. I know it doesn't show up unless I call someone who uses the app but it still makes me uncomfortable that my name and number are being stored in a remote database susceptible to a whole host of things.
You dont get a say when someone else who has stored your name and number shares it with every tom dick and harry on this app. I have a searchable Facebook and G+ that show my name, and whichever picture I have set up as a display image. I did the research to determine whether or not i trust the company to share my info with them. All of YOUR info is safe and sacred because you took the safe(see:naive) approach and 'researched' EVERY company you've given data to. When someone calls my landline, the call ID pops up "John Doe 555-555-5555", so why can't I have that on my mobile? The only way a contact's info was shared was if that person was in contact via phone call or text with the Mr. Because there's no way, no way, that every user had each contact's permission to share their name and phone number with this service. If done that way, the service could build a collection of names and numbers, all of which were provided by their respective owner.
My name and number, and far more personal information are stored on a multitude of different servers with varying degrees of security. If you don't, you're sending LOTS of information out there, without researching who you're giving it to, I might add.
Thats when they do the national dip, and the name may not appear until the second time that caller calls someone on the network. Then competition came around and only the number is required to be passed, why help another company.
But after my first use of Android and suddenly seeing facebook knowing about people that were in my gmail contact list, I understood why webOS gave a darn about the security of it's users and Android didn't.
All that Google has accomplished here is to help telcoms, telemarketers, scammers, and criminals to continue to abuse the network just as they always have.
Sometimes it fails to connect making a terrible noise, when my friend says it then shows International.
Collecting personal information for all contacts stored in a phone, though, that's just shady, even with the phone owner's permission. If the app only took the users info and not their contacts that would be a different story. This app doesn't have a user searchable database, and nothing to suggest that that database is any more or less secure than the plethora of other databases housing your data. Number just does the sharing openly, whereas all of the other companies that also do the same thing do it without telling you. Due to the time a lookup takes, and to male sure its not a one time call (why lookup for a caller that won't call again), then they keep it for x lenght of time. Putting a name next to a number of someone who is calling you or texting you is NOT privacy invasion, it's intuitive and useful.
I can't help but think that this app was starting to put a tiny dent in a revenue stream of one of it's business partners, so they pulled it from the market as a favor. If anything, I would be more inclined to remove a spammer and never do business with them again.
Number attempts to defend itself by saying that "they told you not to opt in to crowd-sourced Caller ID unless you had permission from their contacts and we offered a paid version instead." Give me a break.
I don't want to treat unknown numbered friends the same as unknown solicitors, but without a service like this, I have to.
Unbelievable amounts of data are available for almost any company or person who desires it for whatever purpose. However, if you looked THOROUGHLY through their ToS policies, you would find that you have shared much more than simply your phone number. Or if Cameron's wife calls my phone (using his example from above), would it pop up saying "Ball & Chain"? The fact that the new version of the app will return even better caller ID info is proof enough for me. The better approach is for mr number to maintain a separate database of spammer names and numbers from user feedback. Of course the new database is provided by a third party for a fee, so all the concerns about black-hats are still just as valid. At least the telcoms still get to make money by selling your name and number, and that's what's really important.
