MTN Nigeria has just unveiled a new service called WhoDeyCall which has similar features to TrueCaller.

MTN WhoDeyCall is a service that shows you the name of anyone that calls you. The service will show you blocked, unknown, and spam phone numbers. You will see the caller’s name as a pop-up message before you pick the call.

As previously stated, the service looks similar to TrueCaller which is an internet-based; but WhoDeyCall grants subscribers an edge over MTN customers as callers can be identified without the use of the internet. This means, without the internet, the name of the caller will still pop up even though you don’t have the said number stored on your phone.

MTN WhoDeyCall works on all device types including non-enabled internet-based smartphones.
