Jan 28, 2013, 11:48 AM by Eric M. Zeman
T-Mobile today announced a new service that allows customers to pick a phone number that reflects their name or other descriptor. The service, which is run by StarStar Me, costs $2.99 per month, lets T-Mobile customers choose a name, nickname, or other word in place of their mobile phone number, providing, in effect, a vanity phone number that appears when they call others. The service includes an application for Android and iOS devices that lets users manage incoming calls, send text message responses, as well as block calls and view their call log. The service can be initiated directly from T-Mobile's devices or via T-Mobile's web site. Sprint began offering the same service in October 2012.
