In the US, mobile carriers don't transmit names along with the call, so while such a function would definitely be great, I can't see it happening anytime soon. (Do they transmit names with the number in your part of the world?)

When your phone rings, it knows who it is (even in the US) using CallerID.. On a lot of other phones, there is an option so it goes RING RING and then announces the name of the caller (Like if I've got Eugene in my phone, it will say that, if I've got you stored as "E", it will say "E")Macbook Pro (Late 2008, 2.53GHz), Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 26, 2009 10:38 PM (in response to Bas.T)I've only tried this with numbers in my contacts, but if you turn on the accessability features, it will read out the name of the person calling you. Navigating and everything else becomes much tougher though.Custom, iPhone OS 3.0
