"smart" phone number?

I'd like to know how to get on this "smart" list.

just got a call on my android s7 that has a tag "smart" and shows the full name of the person calling. this person is not in my address book.

I'm assuming that my network/Telco is sending this extra info but where is it coming from?

(I'll try and post a screenshot as i can't while asking a question using the app)

All information is coming from some database. In your case, that should be the mobile provider. Some providers are offering that feature when their clients are calling each other. I have the same function on my landline phone.
