First, I think saying this a "call-blocking" app is a little misleading since the app itself admits it can't block calls due to "technical limitations"- it can only send calls to voicemail. I installed NoMoRobo thinking it would be the best protection against unwanted telemarketing calls, but unfortunately, I can't recommend it. I installed Mr Number about 2 months ago and it does a very good job of identifying robo-calls and junk calls. But I wanted something stronger, which would block the call completely, so I installed NoMoRobo. Since NoMoRobo is a paid-subscription app and Mr Number is free, I assumed the paid-app would do a better job. Here's what happened after I installed it on 11/13: Day 1: 11/14: no robo-calls 11/15: 2 robo-calls which weren't labelled robo-calls; when I looked them up in NoMoRobo, they were labeled as "not reported", but when I looked them up in Mr Number, they *were* labeled as robo-calls. 11/16: no robo-calls 11/17: 3 calls: 2 which were labeled as robo-calls, but the phone app didn't turn red and offer the option to swipe to report; 1 robo-call went straight to voicemail without a warning 11/18 and 11/19: robo-calls don't seem to call on the weekend 11/20: no robo-calls. However, I called GoDaddy (a website hosting company) for information about websites and NoMoRobo labelled their number as a political robo caller. So this is a false positive. 11/21: no robo-calls So out of 6 unknown numbers, 4 were not labeled robo-calls, 1 went to voicemail and 1 false positive. I don't understand how Mr Number (a free app) can identify robo-calls but NoMoRobo (a paid-subscription app) doesn't. I hate to sound blunt, but I'm finding it hard to justify paying for a call-identifier service when a free app seems to be doing a better job.
I’ve used Nomorobo for a year and it has been quite effective, but for the past couple of months the app has increasingly not been updating consistently in the background and has required a restart or deletion and reinstallation. When it’s working properly, it is great. I hope the issues get ironed out soon.
I had high hopes to finally beat all these robocallers, but after my 2 week trial, it is only catching about one out of five calls. I've followed all the advise to keep the app running, but it just isn't identifying calls. With as many numbers that I've reported, I feel nomorobo should be paying *me* to keep their list updated. Sadly will be deleting :(
After a few months of subscribing I can say that this App really doesn’t work. Looking back at a few months’ worth of call logs, I see Nomorobo only successfully blocked a handful of incoming spam calls, compared to the 50+ I received. Doing the math it looks to be less than 10% effective. I keep the product running in the background as necessary, and I keep it updated, and it simply doesn’t block enough calls to make up for the $3/month subscription. I’ve been diligently reporting the spam calls that “got through”, so maybe I’m helping someone, somewhere, but for me the product isn’t doing squat. My phone rings with spam calls at least once a day and it’s aggravating to know that a product I’m paying for doesn’t seem to do anything about blocking them. I’m cancelling.
After upgrading to iOS 11.1.2, it appears that the background refresh is working again. Now I only wish that the mobile app worked like their VOIP product in that it junk the spam calls. Unfortunately the mobile app seems to letb the phone ring (albeit says it's a robocaller) and puts the call to voicemail. I'd prefer a solution that just drops the call so I didn't waste time looking at the caller-id. So I'm giving it an upgraded 3 stars. If they can implement a way to just drop the call it'll get 5 stars.
Most of the robocalls have been successfully blocked. I’ve noticed that with the latest update it uses a lot more of my battery than it used to, up from 1% a day to about 5% a day. It’s not a dealbreaker, but every percent counts when charging isn’t always an option during the day.
At this rate, I will be cancelling during my free trial period!! Downloaded the app this weekend and have received spam calls without being identified. I’ve had to go to the app and look them up! Might as well use the free Truecaller app I was using!!
Please cancel, I did not realize I was paying every month. Thank you
The call blocking option for the app doesn’t show under settings, even after hours.
This app is completely useless. I had to manually enter every robocall number into their database. Then what’s the point? And what’s the point of sending robocalls to voicemail? That’s what they do anyway! I’m just not answering calls if I don’t recognize the number, which is what I was doing before I tried the app, and it works much better for me since it doesn’t waste my time like the app does. Users are doing the work and still dealing with robocall voicemails but paying for a piece of software? Not me!!!
@derekhalpern I use the Nomorobo app on my iPhone- spammers can rarely get thru now
After living with the app for some time I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s probably more trouble than it’s worth and definitely not worth the price I had to pay for it. In addition to really not doing a decent job of blocking calls from mobile phones in my area code, it also does not keep itself and its black list up-to-date automatically very well. I get a message every day or so reminding me that I need to open the app to update it. This is pretty poor software design. In contrast, Nomorobo for my landline works extremely well. It’s free, but that’s the one I’d be willing to pay for. *************** Even though the app recognizes calls with numbers similar to your cell exchange as robocalls--and says so--it labels them as "unblockable" and lets them through to your phone. There's a complicated explanation for this from the vendor on its website, but really, who cares? The app doesn't do an adequate job of stopping robocalls to cell phones. Which is what your paying for but not getting.
This app utilizes a Blacklist to identify nuisance calls, however many scammers are using random phone numbers to get around lists. Therefore, most robocalls are allowed. This product does not work.
Definitely helps, but nowhere near complete
A snap to install, and it just works. Love it!
Only a “free 30-day trial”. Don’t waste your time downloading. It’s just a scam.
I used to get a lot of Robocalls but now I have none!😀 I love Nomorobo
i absolutely LOVE this app! I used to have Hiya and Truecaller but i'd still get like 5 calls a day. Ever since i downloaded this app i rarely get calls, maybe 3 a week that's it! People are saying it doesn't work but i love it. Download it and try it for yourself and see what works for you! But for me, this is it! ❤️
I used to receive annoying robo calls. I tried to block them one by one. But they used to change numbers immediately. I got tired. Then I installed this Nomorobo app. Immediately afterwards, the robo calls stopped calling my number👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾
I was really impressed when I first started using this app but now after using it for awhile the spammers have adjusted! The app fails to block the 4-5 calls I get everyday now where the spammers are faking their caller ID and making it the same as my phones prefix (538)! Every single one of these calls is a Robocall and I report them all to the company, they just keep using different numbers!
Good idea - poor implementation. Works sporadically. Many calls are blocked until it needs an “update”. About 3 times per week. Then you have to reactivate or refresh this stupid app. Frustratingly bad.
