Question: How do I control Voice Cue?
Answer: Voice Cue can be active, with or without Bluetooth connectivity. Volume control is handled by your device profile, so if you are on vibrate the name will not be announced until you change to an audible tone profile.
Voice Cue will only announce a Text ID based on your delay setting in the options menu, so you won’t get repeated announcements during a text conversation. Choose the delay time between VoiceCue announcements for TEXT ID only.
CallerID will always announce, based on your phone profile. New texters are always announced once. If you do not get an announcement for a Caller or Texter, make sure you have Caller ID and/ Text ID enabled in the options menu for people NOT in your contacts list.
Voice Cue will announce people IN your contacts list for all Calls and all Texts but not for unknown numbers, unless you have Caller ID and/or Text ID enabled.

Question: Why is my device telling me it cannot find a necessary file to download this application?
Answer: You should go back to the site you are using for the download and find your device to ensure you are downloading the proper application for the operating system (OS) of your device.
We offer applications for the following OS: BlackBerry, Windows Mobile (Touch and Non-Touch), Android, Symbian and iPhone.
Question: I noticed that many of my Caller’s Names show up after the call is completed or the call is missed. Why?
Answer: Some BlackBerry devices receive Caller Name but display it after the call. The Storm2 connected to Wi-Fi or 3G will display Caller Name during ringing.
Sprint and Verizon networks, at this time, do not offer voice and data simultaneously unless in a Wi-Fi zone. On the other hand, most Windows Mobile and all Android and Symbian devices will provide Caller Name during ringing on ATT’s or T-Mobile’s 3G or 4G networks or in Wi-Fi zones . The application works across all carriers with a good data connection.
Question: Why am I unable to register or receive calling name?
Answer: If you are unable to register or receive a Caller Name response it may be due to a weak data connection. You must have an unrestricted, active data plan and be in an area that can send/receive data. Other times it is due to permissions issues.
Your device must be able to contact an HTTPS web server. You may need to adjust the settings in your device regarding permissions to access web servers. Your carrier can assist you in this matter. If you still need assistance, please contact us by completing a support ticket.
