Trapcall : How does it actually work to reveal caller ID

Trapcall has made a big name in the industry. And why not, it is a one stop solution for unmasking the blocked calls and revealing caller ID. Ever wondered, how you can actually get to know who's calling even if the caller ID displayed shows "Private Number" or "Caller ID Blocked". If someone's bothering you by making those masked calls, Trapcall can help you.

That being said, people have always wondered about this service. As the service is not free, you must satisfy yourself (get answers to all your queries) before you jump on to buy the plans. Moreover its service is currently available only in USA and Canada. I am sure you must be having many questions in your mind about Trapcall like "How it works", "Will it work on my mobile", "Does it work on landline" etc etc...

We decided to dig deep into the common questions and have prepared a list of QnA about these. Yeah, and the part about its working is interesting. Lets find out! - Unmask Blocked Calls

Q. How does TrapCall works to unmask those blocked calls ?
A.  After signing up, TrapCall instructs new users to reprogram their cell phones to send all rejected, missed and unanswered calls to TrapCall's own number. When a blocked or restricted call shows up on a users cell phone, the user just presses the button on the phone that would normally send the call to voicemail. The call then loops through TrapCall's systems where it's unmasked, then sent back to the user's phone, with the caller's number displayed as the Caller ID. All the while the caller hears a normal ring tone, oblivious to the fact that you know exactly who they are.

But how can it get the caller ID. 
Well, it is based on the fact fact that toll-free numbers are not blocked, so it reroutes all calls through a TrapCall toll-free number. And why calls to toll-free numbers are not blocked, because those calls are paid for by the recipient.

So what TrapCall is doing is basically forwarding the call to their own network (Toll Free Number). As we said that calls to Toll Free are not blocked, so the caller id is revealed to them. They can then transfer the call to you with proper caller id. The whole process takes about 5 to 6 seconds !!

Q. Does it have any app ?
A. Yes you can use Trapcall on your iphone or trapcall for your android mobile. It even has an application for blackberry phones. That said, it can work on any phone without the need of any software. Its just that these apps being some additional features.
