Apple Approves App That Unmasks Blocked Calls After 201 Days in Review

Posted April 4, 2011 at 12:42pm by iClarified
Apple has approved TrapCall, an app that unmasks blocked calls, after 201 days in review.

Just install the TrapCall app, program your phone, and TrapCall will instantly start unblocking every private and blocked call you get! ***A paid TrapCall account is required to use this app. Please keep this in mind before downloading/rating/reviewing. ***

How's it work?
Easy! When you receive a private or blocked call, just decline the call so it can be sent to TrapCall for unmasking, and within seconds we send the call back to your phone with the number unmasked! You can even get the name and address associated with the number via SMS or Push Notification instantly!


Blacklist Unwanted Calls:
Stop getting harassing phone calls! Blacklisted numbers will be played a phone company recording telling them your phone number has been disconnected. They'll think your number has been disconnected and will stop calling forever!

Voicemail Transcriptions:
Your voicemails get converted into text and sent to you via SMS, email, or Push Notification. Read your voicemail messages via SMS while in a meeting, class, movie or other busy area!

Missed Call Alerts:
Receive alerts any time you miss a call, even when your phone is off or the caller didn't leave a voicemail!

Caller ID Name & Address:
You won't only see the number of the person calling you, but we'll also show you their full name and address information, when available!

TrapCall offers 3 different plans from the Bug Trap, Mouse Trap and Bear Trap packages, starting at $4.95/month.

You can download TrapCall from the App Store for free.

Yes, it's legal in the US. Most people don't realize this, but you can't block your ID 100% when making calls. The reason for this is that: 1) Toll-free number owners need to see who they're being charged for receiving calls from. 2) Protection from people making harassing calls. It's funny because I have a lot of paranoid friends who block caller ID because they don't want businesses or whoever knowing who they are, but the "system" works just the opposite of that. What I mean is that everyone should turn on caller ID. The bad guys don't need you to turn it on anyway. The good guys, friends and family, need you to turn it on so they can then block or ignore calls from the bad guys. There's nothing worse then having to take calls from the bad guys because you think a friend or family person is trying to call you with caller ID blocked.

Yeah - I'm not quite sure of the legality of this. Telephone operators are required to comply with the request of callers to block their number when they send/transit calls. In this case it appears that you are effectively forwarding your calls to another service [or carrier] who then disregards this request. I can do not believe that this is truly legal.
