How to view calls for mobile WAP ads?

So far from what I gather it is impossible to see if a WAP ad has generated a call and it will show up as only a click.  Is this true?  I'm looking to track phone calls to our number, even if I have to use a google routing number in the WAP add (I haven't seen any way to do this)

 

Tracking the fact that someone clicked our number to call is much more valuable to us then tracking the fact that they clicked the add.

Hello there;

WAP is rapidly phasing out in favor of smartphones with full internet browsers; There are markets in which the number of mobile phones supporting WAP is still significant. However; they are rapidly replaced with high-end mobile phones.

Thus; Google does not support call extensions on WAP.

I don't think this answer addresses what the user is asking. I can create ads specifically for WAP devices, and have them call, as opposed to redirecting the user to a webpage. However, I am also uncertain as to how these ads track in this scenario.
