Do you remember V2R's Caller2Picture which was the first available Caller ID for Pocket PCs and Smartphones? Now, V2R released its C2P in version 3 for Smartphone with lots of new features and I was happy enough to play with it for several weeks already, since its early Beta.

Caller2Picture for Smartphone adds more fun to your Microsoft's Windows Powered Smartphone and increase the usability by adding pictures, ringtones and now also animated backgrounds to the standard call notification window.
While the standard Smartphone platform devices notifies incoming calls with the caller name, company and phone number (if available from the contacts database) only, Caller2Picture adds an additional image and a specific ring tone of the contact to the information, displayed on the Smartphone screen.
Caller2Picture v3.0 for Smartphone is fast, easy-to-use and comes with a new and improved interface that has new functionalities that will make your incoming calls look more interesting.

Caller2Picture is based on V2Rs Intelligence2Interface i-2-i technology (which is also used by O2 for the Xda II as O2 Active User Interface) and therefore allows you to be used in the most intuitive and easy way. V2R i-2-1 technology becomes the basic user interface for all V2R products in the future to give the user all advantages of the enhanced graphic displays for Windows Mobile devices.

New in Version 3.0:

  • New and improved interface based on Intelligence2Interfaces technology
  • SD Card installation
  • New contact interface as a replacement for standard contact interface
  • Compatibility with the standard contacts (uses the default assigned groups, notes, webpage and phone numbers)
  • SMS and Flash SMS sending support (if the SMS has more than 160 characters will be split in several messages)
  • Animated GIF support
  • Default picture selection for not assigned incoming calls
  • WAVE MIDI and WMA rintones support
  • Different rintones for different numbers within a single contact
  • Different pictures for different numbers within a contact
  • OTA updates for new animated GIFs via V2R PPC-Club

Features:

  • Uses Microsoft Outlook Contacts
  • Can use either the contacts from SIM or Outlook

  • Browsing a contacts phone numbers its very easy with a simple click on that contact you can select which phone number would you like to call and by a press on the action button that number is automatically called

  • A sent SMS can be flashed too
  • Offers the possibility to add, edit or delete any contact
  • Clear option offers the possibility to delete all ringtome or picture assignments on the selected contact

Hmm, I have having some problems entering the registration code, the marker is there, but won't let me enter anything.

Posted by Pablo Labarrere on 11.02.04 - 20:03:15

Hey, I have a previous version for the smartphone (1.0) and I want to upgrade to version 3.0 for US$4.95 but the only problem is that I don't know where to go or how to do this because the only option is to pay the US$19.95... am I missing something?  Can someone send me more info, an e-mail address to contact or a link of some sort? 

Thanks - Pablo

At this time version 3 does not run on my i600. A patch was promised to be out soon. Nothing so far

Posted by Richard on 26.02.04 - 18:13:13

Have you received the patch information for the i600 yet? I didn't see your note prior to purchase..... all mine does is continually say "loading......"

Posted by Patrick on 17.03.04 - 14:55:21

Did you find a fix for this yet?  Im having the same problem.
