#637: ScreenName

Given that I particularly dislike using phones, when someone calls my mobile, I always like to know who it is (it’s hard enough to deal with calls from friends and family, but customers always call when I’m crossing the road or eating a sticky toffee).

Screening like this requires me to have keyed in the names of people likely to phone me…which is itself unlikely.

Today’s invention is therefore a mobile phone function which will prompt a receiver, at the end of an incoming call “Who was that?” This then allows the name to be entered verbally (with the option to edit via the keyboard any unusual or misrecorded name).
