TrapCall was founded in February of 2009; and three monthly plans are available for purchase. As of February 2015, the most basic plan is priced at $3.95 per month, and it offers identification of the blocked number as well as the option to blacklist the unwanted caller. The premium and ultimate plans range from $7.95 to $19.95 per month and offer a comprehensive range of functions, including those of the basic plan as well as voice mail transcriptions, notifications for missed calls, name and address of the caller, and lastly the ability to record calls, which is only available with the ultimate plan.

The vision of the company was founded on the basis of protecting the privacy of victims of domestic abuse. Although some domestic abuse advocates contest this foundation, stating that it may actually put the victims at risk of contact with their abuser, TrapCall believes the service will allow victims to maintain their anonymity as they can screen, reject and block unwanted calls, as stated in a 2009 interview with ABC News.

The phone company is another option for tracing blocked calls, as they have the resources to investigate the calls. This is most likely a free option.
