What app lets two people call each other without disclosing each others’ numbers?

What web, social media or mobile app enables two people to call each other without disclosing each others’ numbers?

I’m hoping for something similar to Jajah, which acts as connector between phone lines  and doesn’t incur data charges.

    What web, social media or mobile app enables two people to call each other without disclosing each others’ numbers? Not over data like viber or skype but
    Something similar to Jajah, which acts as connector between phone lines and doesn’t incur data charges and preferably a link to share which when clicked inputs users' numbers to connect over regular lines with charges being incurred through the app

    Here's half an answer:

    Try MagicJack's Android app. It's free, and doesn't require that you have a MagicJack account. If you call from the MagicJack app, the number that shows up on the recipient's phone is a randomly assigned MagicJack number that can change over time.

    This is only half an answer, because the caller still need to know the recipient's number. Your question wanted anonymity on both ends...

    As far as I know, for India this feature lies with the mobile operator.
    If you do not want your number to be disclosed you need to get your operator to activate this feature.
    The operator will only activate it after an NOC from the cops.

    When the operator does activate it, anyone you call will get "Private number calling" on their screen insteadf of the mobile number.

    Having said that if you are not in India.
    Then for Android you can use this app

    Checkout google.com/voice you can call up any phone number(after recharging your account of Google Voice with a min $10). And they wont notice your number. (I use this :3) It has been integrated with Google Hangouts.

      IDK but I still want further clarification of your statement. Do you want (a) an app to call up the phone lines or (b) an app that can be called up from phone lines.

      (a) To call the regular phone lines, Skype/Google Voice will work.
      (b) To be called up on an App from phone lines, I'vent heard of any such 3rd party apps.

      Btw, still if the numbers are kept hidden from the people one can make a third party app which can keep the database of the numbers of people connected over one's social/media/mail account and the call transaction can be made over regular phone lines via that app. (which would be a nice app). But I've not heard of any such application till now.

      P.S: Are you going to make an application over it?

      Dear Dr., do rephrase my answer as 'I Don't know' :)
      And if you get to know such an app, please do reply your question here providing the answer, such that we can be aware of it. I'd be thankful to the one who will spread awareness.

    Though I you use an app like Google Hangouts, your phone number will not be disclosed.

      perhaps if you call your phone company provider they can direct you. Certain companies/ government agencies... can still see your number.

    I know "Line" is one of most popular apps in Asia; possibly the world - but not as much in the US.

    It requires users to import their contacts (I think you can manually add) and only the records that have matching pairs of email addresses are populated in your "Line" address book. (You and the Caller must have each other listed in your contacts).

    It doesn't use phone numbers at all. I don't believe it even uses typical telephone or voip circuits; and if I remember correctly - it's encrypted.

    NSA is gonna have a fit with this one.
