    Hey guys, I am looking for an app that shows the number anyone that is currently calling me dialed....The reason is my phone is assigned 2 numbers, one is for personal use and the other is for business. I'd like to know which number the current person calling me dialed. Prefferably it would work without wifi/3g connectivity, but if it needs either of those, that is fine too.

    Does anyone know if such an app exists? :confused:

    FYI I was not able to find anything like this available anywhere so I don't believe it currently exists :(

    Set dial tones for all your personal contacts, any one that doesn't ring the specific tone it's business. Not ideal but do-able.

    Unfortunately, there's no app that can do that because it's not something that an app CAN do. The feature you're asking for is called DNIS and it's a service that must be provided by your carrier. Most cell companies don't offer it. It's something landline and VoIP companies provide for PBXes and large installations.

    Wow, thank you so much! Exactly what I was looking for....I knew it would have to be based on the underlying telephony technology but I didn't know the name....With it, I can now atleast contact my provider and ask if its something they offer :D Thanks again!

    Virgin Mobile in Canada who are a reseller of Bell...Would you have any idea if they offer it as an addon?

    In fact, is it common at all for any wireless cell provider to offer or even possible? After going a bit of research, it is mainly something that applies to landlines and VOIP appearently :(

    I've used OpenVBX and Twilio in the past, and assigned my Twilio number to show when it's calling me. The only downfall with this is that you can't see who the caller is! I highly recommend the service though, it sounds like exactly what you need.
