Verizon Call Trace allows you to trace unlawful, threatening, or harassing phone calls. Using Verizon, you can trace a phone call as long as another phone call is not received in the interim. The Verizon Unlawful Call Center stores traced phone calls for 90-days, and it's up to you to notify the proper authorities once a call is successfully traced. Tracing a phone call with Verizon is easy, and takes just a few minutes.
