I use it too - seems very good.
Not sure how it works though as it says it never uploads your phonebook but it seems to be able to identify callers by name even if not in your phonebook so must be getting the info from someone's?

When you register it asks for your number etc and adds it to there public database not sure if it has local access to your contacts as if you hit search in the app it says among your xxxx contacs and xxxxxxxxx in trucaller the number in trucaller is growing as you look at the page

Right, so it only knows others who use truecaller if not in your address book........?
I guess it also has access to a public database too as I had a call yesterday which came up as "Severn Trent Water"

Nice heads up Adam. Might be useful now considering I get regular premium numbers calling & because myo2 is knackered, I am no longer able to edit my contact preferences
