Caller ID sharing

    My friend's phone rang and his caller ID showed a name that I typed into my phone months before. Can two phones share this information?

        It's possible. The caller ID from the phone will show whatever the owner enters for that specific number. Does your friend have that number saved as a contact? If so, can they edit that contact and see if they're allowed to change the name to something different.

            The question is why would my friends phone show an ID name that was typed into my phone ? Do T-Mobile phones automatically share information if they are close to each other?

                Sharing phone information is possible, but not automatically. Things like that would require one phone giving permission to the other. Other than coincidentally entering the exact same name for that number, I can't think of another way that the names would match.
