Genesis: Truecaller for Symbian

One of the very first versions of Truecaller from 2009 was on Nokia’s Symbian OS, as pictured below:

In a valedictory message, Truecaller paid tribute to these glorious platforms of years gone by in the following words:

When we began creating Truecaller in 2009, these phone types were at the top of their popularity, and because of them, Truecaller reached millions of people and helped their calling experience. With the evolution of how phones have changed throughout the years, so has the technology of Truecaller. These platforms simply cannot offer the kind of capabilities we need to explore and grow our app’s features for the future.

Moving Along Now

If you intend to keep using Truecaller and currently own a phone that falls under any of the platforms being discontinued, what you need to do is switch to Android, iPhone or Windows 10 Mobile. Come October 2016, Truecaller for Symbian OS, Nokia Series 40 and BlackBerry 7 SO will have been shut down.
