Search It - in call log

Post by Rence » Wed Jul 01, 2009 2:56 pm

How about a feature in the Call Log to do an internet search on a number - either using a generic search engine like Google or possibly a search with some of those websites that track phone numbers.
Had Ooma since the weekend - saw in the call log the same number popup once per day - called during the day when no one was home. Copied number and pasted in Google - discovered that this is one of those numbers for the "We can lower your interest rates" robocalls - so I immediately blacklisted it. You could offer a search option right within the callog to assist users with tracking down who is calling.

Ooh! Even better.. automatically use known Who Just Called Me research right in the call log so you don't even need to search to find that out. That would be neat.

I was thinking to do this for only numbers that you don't already "trust" but Ooma doesn't support the concept of a white list yet. I wonder if they have any white list plans? Anyway.. I digress.

I like the suggestion.

Cheers,
Scott
