Phone stalkers have always been out there. But with the spread of mobile phones, unwanted calls and text messages (aka SMS) have really become a nuisance. Now it is common for all of us to get blank calls, prank calls, indecent text messages, promotional calls and SMS, telecallers harassing you for credit cards or donations... the list is endless. Sometimes unwanted calls become a source of big safety trouble especially for girls. In such a scenario, the first thing you want is to trace the phone number. While landline (fixed line) numbers can be looked into telephone directory, tracing mobile number is not so easy.
Wondering who is calling you?
Sometimes, I receive phone calls from unknown mobile numbers that neither I nor does my cellphone recognize. In such cases I often wished if I could find details (like caller's name and location) of the phone number. If I happen to miss the call then it becomes a bit difficult decision whether to return the call. The dilemma gets enhanced also because the unknown number could as well be a wrong number and also it could that be of a nagging tele-caller. Very routinely, we all face this problem of unknown phone numbers. In such times, TrueCaller service comes as a great respite. Using TrueCaller, you can easily trace any mobile number and put a name to an unknown mobile phone number number.
Trust me, this is extremely useful if someone is trying to harass you by making unsolicited, unwanted and/or blank calls. Faced with such anti-social elements, people often wish if they could find the details of phone number that is being used by the offender.

Besides tracking a mobile number, you can also take a few more step to reduce the number of incoming unwanted promotional calls. you should register your number in the National Do Not Disturb (DND) Registry.
Pesky telephone calls and SMS/text messages sent by tele-callers and marketers are a massive nuisance in India. It is common for people to keep getting messages and calls to buy flats, plots, insurance, credit cards, loans and what not!
Every time your phone beeps to signal that a new SMS has arrived, you tend to believe that it's a message from family, friend or colleague –but what great disappointment it cause when you open the message only to see an –unbelievable offer! You've wished so many times if you could track these unwanted phone calls!
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) came to customers' rescue when this nonsense method of marketing grew beyond a limit. TRAI started a DO NOT DISTURB aka DND registry and mandated that if a consumer's phone number is listed in this database –it would be illegal to make marketing calls or send such messages to that number.
Once you get registered in DND, you're not supposed to receive any annoying marketing calls. But in reality, you still do get such calls/sms. Although the number and frequency may get reduced. So, it's beneficial to some extent. Also, if you register in DND database, you can take legal action against such callers.
TRAI has setup a website for this purpose. Go to Telecom Commercial Communications Customer Preference Portal and enter the phone number you want to check for. The site immediately informs you of the DND status of the phone number.
If your mobile phone number turns out to not be listed in this registry –it is highly recommended that you immediately take steps to register it.
When the telemarketing companies began to go overboard in making unsolicited calls and sending a barrage of sms / text messages to mobile phone customers in India, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) came to customers' rescue.
Government of India's agency, TRAI, setup a National Do Not Disturb Registry and invited customers to register their phone number. Once registered, it becomes illegal to make marketing calls or send such sms to that phone number. In reality, however, you still do get such calls/sms. Although the number and frequency may get reduced. So, it's beneficial to some extent. Also, if you register in DND database, you can take legal action against such callers.
