Callblock: Adblock for unwanted calls App Description & Overview

Callblock is the first app that lets you stop telemarketing phone calls in iOS (https://techcrunch.com/2016/09/07/callblocks-new-ios-app-will-block-calls-from-over-2-million-telemarketers/), with the world’s biggest directory of telemarketers – now over 3,000,000 classified entries from over 100 countries! Note: Callblock is free to try for one month then will automatically renew using your Apple account for $1.99 monthly or $19.99 yearly afterwards – you can cancel anytime by going to your account settings in iOS or iTunes. See the app’s terms of use at https://callblockapp.com/terms and privacy policy at https://www.iubenda.com/privacy-policy/7907565. Callblock *cannot* block calls with no caller ID – this is an iOS limitation, but most telemarketers don’t block their caller IDs. You love your iPhone – except sometimes the phone part and, in particular, the telemarketers often on the other end of the line. Telemarketers make 148 million annoying, time-wasting calls per day according to consumer group Private Citizen and do-not-call lists (where available) do not work (and weren’t even meant to for many types of telemarketers) according to governments themselves. Callblock helps prevent these calls. The app blocks unwanted telephone calls not iMessage, SMS, or MMS messages. To allow Callblock to block calls: 1. press the Home button on your iPhone, 2. tap the “Settings” app, 3. tap “Phone” > (under “Calls”) “Call Blocking & Identification”, then 4. toggle the “Callblock” switch on. To unblock calls or to add missing or misclassified callers, navigate to the Callblock app. Enabling Callblock or making changes in the app may take up to a minute to take effect.

  • Worth a try

    I'm going to give this app a try. I am going to wait to decide until it has time to be fully functional (with all the database downloaded ) then I will provide a fully informed review. I get A LOT of junk calls. I know I can block them with the iPhone but that takes a lot of time for the amount of calls I get. If it works out will definitely be worth it.
  • Just installed, paid version. Unhappy

    A 20 minutes later, got a junk call. Not so happy. Added the call to the app. So far, no joy. Cancelled subscription. Looks like I still have access for 30 days. Will use this period to evaluate further. UPDATE: just got an email From these guys. Said it takes a while to download the millions of numbers. Ok then. Well, even now - some time later. No Joy. I wrote them back and said it does It work. Period. What an insult, getting a standard email from them. I already voted by getting my refund. Wish there was a consumer warning button.
  • Terrible support, terrible upgrade

    Bought it when it came out last year. It was never that effective. But I felt it was better than nothing. After recent upgrade, it lost my subscription status. I followed instruction to contact support with receipt, after a week I still haven't heard from them. I've deleted the app and back to manual blocking EDIT: I did follow FAQ instruction and emailed receipt as I already stated in my review above. Still no response yet from your support. But only reply on here
  • Worked okay for a while

    Update: it has improved again so I'm bumping this up to 4 stars. I just hope they can keep up with the spammers. It feels like they've given up. I'm back to manually blocking callers that show up as spammers in google searches.
  • Does not work. Do not use.

    1.) It is not free, requires a $20/year or $2/month subscription. No free option, it just stops working. 2.) If does not work. Literally an hour after I downloaded and subscribed, I received another junk robocall that it did not block or tag. I added it to the system but I can already block callers on my iPhone. Why would I pay $20/yr for something that the iPhone already can do. 3.) Even for your $20 the support does not care, is not knowledgeable and is either slow to respond or just unresponsive in general.
  • Not free

    Considering I can block any phone number on my iPhone. I do not want to pay for something I already have.
  • Works great!

    This app has been really effective for me, significantly better than most of the other call blocking apps out there! A very small price to get rid of the huge unwanted call headache.
  • Love this app

    The app is free but the second you download it makes you pay for a subscription. Two thumbs down

    I highly recommend this app for anybody who does not appreciate getting telephone calls from unknown numbers over and over again. No more fraud, telemarketers, IRS scams and contacts that I don’t want calling! It’s a great peace of mind
  • Fails to identify most calls
