How to unmask blocked caller IDs with TrapCall

32 Comments

It’s incredibly annoying when friends block their numbers. I understand that you might think your call is of the utmost importance, but I have an idea of what you’re calling about and whatever I’m doing right now is more important. It’s not that I don’t value your friendship, I’ll call you back, it’s just that you’re a little self-centered and don’t realize my time isn’t yours to waste. So don’t block your number and just let me ignore you until it’s convenient to call back. Capiche?

Trapcall works to solve the above problem. When you reject or miss a call, your phone forwards those calls to TrapCall’s servers which then re-routes the call back to you. When the call comes back to you, the caller ID is unblocked. The second time you reject, the call goes to voicemail. This is not only a great way to stop your friends or insane ex’s from tricking you, but it also helps stop telemarketers do the same thing.
