If it's a blocked/masked number I just don't answer. Hell if it's a number that I don't recognize I don't answer either. They can leave a message & give their number if the REALLY need to talk to me. I won't be needing this.

As AJAC09 said, who cares paid services!!, we need free services too.
TrapCall once was a free service, in one on their options, but now are only paid services.

The headline says it tells you "who". Wrong!

Just to see what would happen, I entered my cell phone number. It said "successfully traced" and offered to sell me a full report. Problem is, it claims the number is for a land line. And I've had this phone number for six years. I guess that's good, since I don't want them tracing my number.

sometimes I really don't mind back tracking to the 1990's where we didn't rely on the world wide web for everything! and where you could get more than 4 gallons of gas for $5, and where people actually socialized in person. there is a time where you gotta say to much is too much.

No. He's just excited because he's reading about how his pathetic home screen is possibly going from 4x4 grid of apps to 4x5. Yes sir, IOS is sure exciting!

I have a CRO. I've received calls from an unknown or blocked number today. I answered them because I am waiting for an important call that I know always comes through as unknown. These were not the calls I anticipated; I'll not detail, but what I heard was disturbing.

Is it possible to reveal the number of prior unknown calls (e.g. In my call history) or only for an active call. I've searched the web and App Store but haven't found anything with this functionality. Thank you.
