Sprint offers your name as your number for $3 a month
posted by Victor H. / Oct 08, 2012, 7:28 AM
This is a collaboration between Sprint and Palo Alto company Zoove holding millions of such numbers, where you dial twice asterisk and follow up with numbers matching the name.
Zoove saw an opportunity in partnering with Sprint as it has only sold thousands of its millions of numbers.
The goal is to offer the same service on other big U.S. carriers as well.
When dialling such a number, the phone will either ring or you can have an app send an automated message as an answer or a text.
Would you spend $3 on pimping out your number like this?

Can't say I'm intrigued by the concept; my contact book and all kinds of quick-dial widgets are more than easy enough. On another (much more compelling) note, what on earth is that GS3 in the picture? It not only has on-screen navigation buttons, but they're stylized to imitate pre-ICS usage. Very, very odd image.
