  • IntelliID Delivers Smart Calling ID For Jailbroken iPhones


    A wicked cool (but not yet released) creation for jailbroken iPhones is getting a lot of buzz ahead of its much-anticipated release -- and not without good reason.

    The app in question -- which is iOS 5 ready, by the way -- is IntelliID. As you might imagine, it provides Caller ID for your iPhone. But what we're dealing with here is an immensely sophisticated app even capable of looking up wireless callers.

    According to Intelliborn, makers of IntelliID, the app fetches the caller's name from a US/Canada calling database and displays on the incoming call screen, as well as missed calls on the lock screen and on the recent call list.

    Among the announced features:
    • Rapidly fetches incoming caller name
    • Add to contacts automatically enters First and Last Name in Contacts entry
    • Integrates into Missed Call information in Recent Phone list and on lockscreen for iOS 4.x and iOS 5.x!
    • Full 30 day history helps you keep track of your lookup usage
    IntelliID also makes it simple to add contact numbers after they've called by filling in their first and last name when you add an IntelliID'd new contact.
    IntelliID will be available on a subscription basis. All tiers include 6 months of service. Tier 1, for example ($4.99), gets you 250 lookups per month; Tier 2 ($7.99) bestows 500 lookups per month; and Tier 3 ($9.99) gives you Unlimited lookups (limited to one device only).

    A free trial (10 Free Lookups) is being made available to new users. IntelliID supports iOS 4.x and, as mentioned, iOS 5.x.

      This should be standard on all mobile service and phones, and people shouldn't have the right to block their numbers and names from showing up. If a strange number appears to be calling me I want to know the name behind it so I know whether it's someone I know, or not.

      I disagree to a point. Many people value their privacy. We should have the right to hide our caller id, but on the flip side, we should also have the ability to automatically stop incoming calls from blocked ids, and let them hear a "please unblock your id" message. My land line (Cablevision) allows that to be setup. I don't see why cell phones don't

      Let's you know the name behind the numbers that you don't have in your contacts. It's useful if the person gives you a fake name (assuming the service is accurate) when doing business, That could be a tip off to not do business with them. It may also have some private investigation qualities to it. I'll test it out when it comes out, and probably write a blog post about it.

      Agreed!

      This sounds a lot like "TrapCall" which has been available for months now.

      iBlacklist my friend.....wonderful app I must say at blocking unwanted calls.

      Also to add to the discussion, it says the plans are for 6 month blocks not 1 month so $5 for 6 months is a great price to try it and see if its worth it to you. You cant even buy a latte and a donut for $5 nowadays.

      Most of the time, this works, but only in the notification after the call has ended, right?

      Mine doesn't do it in real time.

      iBlacklist is the primary reason I jailbreak my phone now that almost every other reason I used to JB for has been added to iOS. If Apple added winterboard features, and iBlacklist features I'd be fine with stock iOS.

      Grab whoiscalling from Cydia. It does the same thing, has been out for a year or so, and is free. Screw that stupid subscription pricing. I used to buy a lot of intelliborn's products, but the has just been going up and up in price and I'm done with his wares.
