I have a blank "no ring" ringtone for Unknown/No Caller ID callers.

I SOOOOO WISH SPRINT WOULD OFFER "ANONYMOUS CALL REJECTION" JUST LIKE ALL LAND LINES OFFER!!!

What would really be nice is to have the name with the number like on a landline.

Ya, when are they going to upgrade the technology.

Our cell caller ID is the same as it was in 1995. Just 10 digits.

Yes the incoming numbers are pulled from a different data system, but still, you would think it would save sprint some time and their cusotmers some hassle. If they want to reduce churn, they better start thinking of ways to make their customers happy!
the reason why sprint dont post incoming calls detail with call trace process is becasue its againts the FCC or FEDERAL COMMUNICATION COMMITTEE. if other providers are showing those details, that means they are violating teh rules.

you can now request for your name to shows up as your caller id. just call customer care from your mobile phone by dialling *2 and they will grant your req in 72 hrs. try it.

I don't know if you're missing something -- it depends which post you're replying to. The initial post was about getting calls w/ no caller ID info traced. Additionally, this thread was started two years ago. At that time, Sprint did not offer incoming call details on the bill.

The problem is they honor the presentation flag on the call. So if someone *67's before they call you they block it but sprint still gets that data. What I do is forward my cell phone to a tollfree number on equipment that I control. I get the callerid of the caller no matter what then. I have done this multiple times and it really freaks people out that are messing with me.

If you get a voice mail account at http://www.k7.net I believe they show blocked caller ID's.

Also, it's cool to record a custom greeting of a outgoing ring/call tone so that anyone calling thinks it's still ringing when really their number was logged and recording was started after the 2nd ring. And you might get to hear anything that was said about you while the fake ringing was going on. "This dumbass never answers his phone!" lol.

Turn Call Forwarding on on your cell and forward it to the K7 number.

Sprint does charge per min for forwarding.

I SOOOOO want Sprint to offer the same Anonymous Call Rejection service I have on my landline.

Has the policy changed?

Just called (866) 259-7534 today, but they require me to see a police officer, the officer then call sprint... and the records will be released to the police..

If there is another special number to call, I would appreciate anyone sharing..

what about unwanted TEXT messages are they traceable if sent from your computer and not your phone. I have several and they are sent from a computer and I do not know who is doing this but i am tired of it all.
