Anonymous Caller with Blocked CallerID? Not Anymore

TrapCall offers a new free service that reveals CallerID from those pesky blocked calls from annoying callers that think their anonymity is more important than you knowing who they are. Well the war between being anonymous and knowing "who is calling you" is over - no more blocked CallerID.

It's over, Johnny. It's over!

Nothing is over! Nothing!! You just don't turn it off! It wasn't my CallerID war! You asked to talk to me, I didn't ask to talk to you! And I did what I had to do to win! But somebody wouldn't let us win! And I come back to the world and I see all those maggots with cell phones at the airport, protesting me, spitting. Calling me CallerID killer and all kinds of vile crap! Who are they to protest me?! Who are they?! Unless they've been me and been there and know what the hell they're yelling about!

Not knowing 'who is calling' was a bad time for everyone, Rambo. It's all in the past now.
With apologies to John Rambo and First Blood, one of the greatest movies of all time.

Here's how TrapCall works. When you reject or miss a call, your phone forwards the call to TrapCall's toll free number. TrapCall then unveils the hidden CallerID info (since you can't block CallerID to toll-free numbers) for the missed call and then re-routes the call back to you. Your phone will then see the Caller ID unblocked. If you reject the call a second time, it'll go to your regular voicemail. Importantly, all the caller hears is normal ringing.

The free version does CallerID unmasking and lets you configure caller blacklists. The two paid versions offer additional features, including CallerID names, call recording, and voicemail transcription.
