Jenneth, the well known gadget girl from "down under", recently reviewed V2R's Caller2Picture with her new Orange SPV.

So if you are also thinking about how much sense C2P makes for you or if you should wait for alternatives, you might give it a read - but in any case it's fun to check her site and read about a gadget girl's passion.

Ok, so the SPV's not quite one of those fancy 3G phones capable of video conferencing, but one of the things that I would have thought would be in the SmartPhone 2002 OS would be picture caller ID. So not only would I be able to see the name of the person calling me, but I would also be able see their lovely face (or ugly mug, as the case may be) as well.

Lucky I didn't hope for this too hard, otherwise I'd be nursing a broken heart as I type this. No picture caller ID. As usual though, software developers have stepped up to the fore to deliver the goodies that we so geekily long for.


All in all, a pretty good program. Hangs for a few seconds here and there, which hopefully the developer will fix in the next release, but pretty solid for a 1.0 release.

It's great fun being able to assign pictures to each of my contacts and have their picture come up when they call me. I have fantasies of assigning really horrible pictures for people that I don't like .. like pictures of a dead sea cow or Anna Nicole Smith.

I couldn't agree more! While it might hangs in some situations/configurations, the version 1 works proper on my SPV and hey, you have to keep in mind that V2R had to find some workarounds because not all APIs are accessible. For any reason Microsoft didn't integrated some 3rd party developer stuff (same with contacts search for EZOS MMS client on the SPV). So overall it's done pretty well and I'm more than satisfied with Caller2Picture 1.0

Cheers ~ Arne
