    StarStar Me sounds like a incomplete revenue generoator.

    With things like GoogleTalk, Blackberry Messenger, etc., which are free why would I pay $3 bucks for this? This screams of desperation!

    I read the FAQs and at the moment it seems very limited.

    Personally I feel like it's going to backfire. Might be good for a business, but for a personal line it sounds like harassment waiting to happen.

    Haven't really read up on this because, quite frankly, I don't care. But from what you guys are saying, it sounds almost as bad as Verizon charging 10 dollars a month for their "VZW Navigator," when you could just get free navigation with Google Maps. lol

    for business.. it sounds good...

    personal..
    with all the smart devices.. that can remember almost everything for us. I dont see why i would want this for $3 .. a month. $36 a yr!



    for work/personal business.
    if you do not have a sprint service... can we still get this?
    or
    since I have sprint.. can I get it.. and link it to a non-sprint number???

    For people who meet a variety of strangers via personal or work events with one number this is an easy way to screen who gets your actual number without having to add an app or 3rd party service. For most of us who have two phones it might not be be an option but it isn't wise to knock on what is made for a niche market.

    It's all about the other person being able to get, remember your number without you having to wait til they get a pen or get their phone and slowy get to contacts as you stand there and tap the feet...lol..

    I just say "what's your #, I'll send you a text" BAM done. With Galaxy S3 auto-reject, I have no fear of giving out my numbers, and I have google voice to give to telemarketing loving businesses.

    **ME could be useful for those with flip phones or feature phones tho.
