It depends on thy type of service you are using.

If it is inband, it is in the audio signal, so in theory you could decode it, though I am not sure if it can be done by the normal end user phone as it means you have to decode some frequencies.

In out of band it is sent as a SIP message and can be terminated by the switch.

As of mobile which I think you imply here it can be both because it could be SIP between carriers.
