Whitepages ID will help you identify random callers on Windows 10 Mobile

White Pages ID, a fantastically-useful little caller ID app, is now available for Windows 10 Mobile. Similar to the popular Truecaller app, Whitepages ID offers up a free way to identify phone numbers that you don't have in your address book when they come calling. In addition, you'll get automatic warnings about suspected spammers along with easy call blocking and more. Here's a quick rundown of the main features of Whitepages ID:

  • Caller ID: Only take calls from people you want to talk to. Take calls from friends not in your phone book. Pick up the call from your doctor. Never miss an important call from someone trying to get in touch.
  • Call Blocker: Black list spam, scams, and annoying telemarketer or political calls and send them straight to voice mail. Call blocker that black lists and stop calls and SMS messages to take your privacy back.
  • Scam & Spam Protection: Alerts automatically appear to warn you if an incoming call is from suspected spam. Easily report spam callers, scams, and SMS spam to stop them from contacting other users in the Whitepages community.
  • Phone Book Contact Photos: See the latest profile photo, job title and city information for friends, family, co-workers and business associates from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
  • True Contacts: Add names and addresses from the Whitepages directory to your phone book contacts to keep them true, complete and up to date.
  • Save Money: Reduce the amount of minutes that unknown calls and unknown text messages use up.

The app makes a nice alternative to Truecaller if it's not your thing for one reason or another, so it's worth checking out. At the moment, it looks like the app is only available for those in the U.S., however, so do be aware of that. In any case, if you'd like to check it out, you can hit up the link below to grab Whitepages ID from the Windows Store.

  • Any idea how to compare this to True caller, which has been awesome for me!
  • I've found so far that Truecaller has a more complete database but I haven't used both enough yet to really be sure.
  • wonder how it compares to true caller.... which has let a few blocked numbers through over the past couple of days...
  • Just on reputation in the US I'd go with Whitepages as they have been doing this longer than anyone. Either way, both are free, so compare/contrast.
  • So does it work good enough for you to ditch Trucaller?
  • will try it out for a week.let's see how it does :)
  • so far, not good. 1 blocked number came through today, and no additional caller ID info was presented.
  • Sounds awesome :)
  • Well - this helped me identify a bug in build .36 (L925) at least. Clicking on the provided link in this article (in Edge) takes me to the web store where I can click the Get the App button. That, in turn, sends me to something about the app not being in the kids corner. Install from the store app worked fine.
  • Funny that the first screenshot is a 215 number. Philly represent!
  • Woot woot
  • In da house!
  • Sigh...where is the Lumia Call + SMS filter app that was there in WP8!!!
  • It's hidden in the settings in the messaging app. I stumbled on it accidentally
  • No download option, anyone give me the Link plz..
  • Just search in the store my friend.
  • As if the store has a competent search function...
  • Go to the store and enter whitepages, pops right up.
  • Nice to see it on WP. I use it on my Android.
  • Dual SIM support would be nice.
  • Not founding in store it is not there
  • Crashes trying to sign up on Lumia 950. Guess I will stick with True Caller for now.
  • Lol it won't send me verification code. Lumia 950 XL.
  • Had the same problem on my Nokia 928 so I had it call me with the code instead.
  • It's this kind of service not commonly offered by providers? My provider (Rogers in Canada) offers this service, branded as Name Display. It's a lot more useful as not only does it have publically available names, but it also has the names of Rogers customers (about 30% of Canada's population uses Rogers).
  • Does this app take all of your contact data and upload it into their database?
  • its not available in India?  
  • I never could get it to send me the code to verify my number to activate. Am using TrueCaller right now.
  • It took a bunch of tries but I finaly got a verification code. (but I had to have it call me.) But it doesn't seem to actually work. I'll have to try some more tomorrow.
  • It's not there...
  • Doesn't support my L620(that's weird what the heck it needs)
  • 1gb ram
  • Just give me the download link ? Pleas major drawback of this app

  • I couldn't get past the advertisment. So, I just uninstalled it. Guess it's back to using TrueCaller for me.
