    Does anyone out there know of an App to DISABLE the incoming caller ID and Picture ID, when in LOCKED MODE.

    You ask, WHY would someone want to do this? Well the other day, I got into a pretty big arguement with girl that I have been recently dating about ANOTHER girl calling my phone at 10:30 at night.
    I had set a password protected screen lock on my EVO... also had the ringer volume on silent. But as we were sitting on the couch watching a movie together... all of a sudden my phone lights up (bright as hell) and shows a picture and name and phone number of ANOTHER girl calling me.

    So needless to say, I had some explaining to do.... So for the past few hours I've been searching for an app or setting to DISABLE my incoming caller ID and PHOTO when screen is locked.
    I'd like for the phone to ring... but require that I UNLOCK with password BEFORE seeing who is calling.
    In this situation I would prefer a missed call and simply call that person back at a more opportune time.
    I'd gladly PAY for an APP that would properly handle this function.

    Thanks in advance

    Ok player...this new age of technology requires that you step up your pimp game. So here's some friendly advice.

    It's never a good idea to keep pictures of your creepers in your phone contact list. If you want to keep them in your gallery that's your choice, although if she's one of your creepers then the only time you want to see her is when she's in front of you anyways. Your side piece should never have a pic and should only be identified by initials (A.J., K.M). That way gender is never known.

    So there you are...problem solved and it won't cost you a dime.






    Of course, you could always just be upfront with the women you're dating and then you don't have to worry about anything, but who does that??

    I don't know of an app but maybe you could try a privacy screen protector?

    Date girls that aren't jealous and insecure? Always works for me :) Better in the long run anyway...

    Probably harder to find than an app.

    Yeah... OK, thanks for all the morality speeches. :) But I thought this was a tech forum?
    My pimp game is up to par... I certanily understand the use of alias names, pics, etc. But I was hoping that I could use some technological advances to simplify things.
    I'm sure there are enough "playas" or even "wanna be playas" out there thatwould gladly pay for this type of security feature (assuming it functioned properly). So maybe some of you software guru's can figure this one out... there's a financial future in it for ya. With online dating, social networking, and divorce rates all on the RISE... someone may just wish to take advantage of this wide open market.

    Such a lame thing to say. I have a GF that I have been with 6 months, but I have been in this guy's shoes too. Trust me, being single is a blast, and anyone who says otherwise lacks confidence or is scared to be alone.

    OP, for now I would fake name it or use initials. It sucks, but you can put their real name in another field.

    The best way to find a killer GF is to date around and have options so you don't have to settle. Sounds like that is what the OP is doing, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

    I like that someone saying they're happily married is lame and condoning sneaky tactics is not. :D

    It's not sneaky to date more then 1 person at a time. Welcome to 2010, where that is how the dating scene goes now. And here is a real stunner for you...girls do the same exact type of things.
