For a long time I was a big fan of TrueCaller, which is a good caller ID asp itself, but then I discovered Current Caller ID. I found that Current Caller ID was able to identify a lot more unknown phone numbers than TrueCaller was able to recognize. Plus, it's free!

I have also installed the latest version of truecaller along with it; but what's killing truecaller is those numerous ads,esp the full screen ones which pop up after you make 2-3 searches; and that's where this shines.I didn't find any ad yet.And it has an awesome graph feature summarizing your text and call msgs and finding top 3 person who texts you.I really wished it to have whatsapp integration.
