Having caller ID on your phone has made a world of difference in our lives and we can’t imagine being without it. Most importantly, as a parent, you’re not only taking calls for yourself but on behalf of your kids too. So when it comes to keeping track of your kids and their after-school activities, this situation may sound familiar…’
After dropping your kids off at school, you’re free of worry and go about your day knowing that they’ll be occupied with school until 3 p.m., followed by soccer practice until 4:30, which is when you’ll pick them up. Everything runs like clockwork, until coach cancels practice because he’s sick. What happens now?
Remember that phone tree you filled out at the start of the season? It’s the one you listed your cell phone number on because everyone knows that you have your Android on you at all times. Well today it’s going into full effect to alert you and the other parents that your little MVPs need to be picked up early. That’s a call you would absolutely want to take, but the likelihood of it coming from another parent’s cell phone is high. If you haven’t added their number to your phone, then they will ring through as an unknown number, and because of that, you may choose to ignore their call. I mean, how many times do you really pick-up an unknown call?
Unfortunately, due to the belief that the call is “unwanted,” you’ve suddenly become the break in the phone tree and on top of that, you’re late to pick up your little one.
But what if you had the Hiya app installed on your phone? That unknown number would pre-populate with the name of the other player’s parent. You’d call the next parent on the phone tree list and be on time for pick-up. Everybody wins!
With the Hiya app for Android, know who’s calling even if they’re not listed in your phone’s contacts list. On top of that, you can block specific numbers and receive spam alerts to ensure that you only take the calls from the people who matter most in your life.
