Sprint offers $3/mo StarStar Me vanity number service

Sprint has started offering a monthly service to let subscribers enjoy an easy-to-use vanity number service through StarStar Me. Through the said service, users can get a special 5-digit code that can be used to reach them instead of the regular 10-digit numbers that are assigned to their cellphones. To use the service, one only has to dial two asterisks followed by the 5-digit code--for example: dial **32843 for DAVID. It costs $3 a month.

What Else You Need To Know

  • This service from Sprint is offered in cooperation with Zoove's Star Star.
  • Android users can enjoy additional features of the Star Star Me service through a special Star Star Me Android app.
