TrueCaller is a mobile application that shows who the caller is instantly on incoming calls if the number is not stored in your phone book. Even if you receive a call from abroad, you can still identify who the caller is, if the number is publicly available. If the number is not publicly available we can still display which city or country the number belongs to.
The Caller ID functionality is available for Android Phones, Symbian Phones and Windows Mobile phones. Blackberry will be supported soon. TrueCaller will always work, provided you have 3G or EDGE or WiFi connection on your cellphone and the number is available on reverse phone number lookup services.
