From time to time, you may receive a call from an unknown number. Maybe this is a friend who got a new number, or maybe it’s someone you’ve recently met whose number you haven’t saved yet. However more often than not, it might be a nuisance call from salespeople who are cold calling, or it might be scammers who are trying to trick you into giving away personal details.


The good news is that if you are planning on picking up either the newly announced Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, you will be pleased to learn that Samsung has teamed up with Whitepages to offer built-in caller ID software. What this means is that when you receive calls from unknown numbers, Whitepages will be able to tell you if the call might be a scam or a fraudulent call, so that you can save yourself time and effort from having to answer it.

According to Whitepages CEO Alex Algard, “Ensuring phone safety through user-friendly services is what we do at Whitepages. We are happy to have worked with Samsung on the Galaxy S7 to provide their users with the greatest phone experience possible and further grow our footprint in the international arena.”

In the meantime, major US carriers have announced that they will begin taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge starting on the 23rd of February, with the phones expected to be available for purchase on the 11th of March.
