    (migrating from note 5 to note 7)
    On the note 5 caller i.d would show state or country if caller was not in my my address book.

    on the note 7 i've actually noticed that it shows business names. Even if they are not saved in my phone.
    Is that a note 7 feature? or a Sprint feature?

    On AT&T it's an app called Caller Name ID, and there is a monthly charge for it. It's likely the same for other carriers.

    T-mobile does the same thing, it's a free trial basically. Then x dollars a month if you want to continue. They get 3 bucks a month out of me for the Voicemail to text feature that was a free trial lol

    Good question, been a long time since I've been on these forums, something like 2 years. Looks like it is a like button now?

    True caller id is an app that Samsung integrated into the new phones( I believe it started with S6/note 5). Most carriers disabled it because they have vtheir own caller id apps that charge a monthly fee. You can download it in the Google play store.

    It's not on the web forum anymore but it still is an option in the mobile app. I don't think users get notified of 'thanks' they get though.

    Is that backwards? I can Thank somebody on the desktop version, but not on the mobile web version, nor the AC Forums app. Please correct me and let me know how to do it if I am missing something.

    I am on the Web now using Chrome on a PC, and I have options to reply, quote, multi quote, and like. No thanks option that I can see.

    I use the AC full mobile app on my Note, not the forum only app, and in there I have the Thank option as well as like and quote.

    Just install Hiya. It's free and actually is what T-Mobile charges for (Hiya is the backend for T-Mo's paid caller ID service). It's pretty shady that they charge for something that's totally free, but here we are. I disabled my T-Mo app and just use Hiya (formerly Whitepages). Works perfectly.

    Hate that we're going off topic here, but I don't have that pop-up in the AC Forums app.
