Not understanding why the app doesn’t stop calls from coming through. You only block calls after they came through. Still get the same auto warranty calls just different number
Only had the app a couple of days but it hasn’t seemed to block the nuisance calls yet. Maybe it takes a little longer.
I called AT&T about the app not sending a PIN to enable the call protect. The app never gives you the PIN? 🤷♂️. After the update the app is broken. Check your code. The request pin link does not work. Try it yourself. Please fix this issues.
Well, I got ONE call that said “Spam”, which is not what I want. I want to not deal with these things at all. Every other call went right through. I might as well not have this app on my phone for all the good it’s done. Out of 10 calls - 9 were allowed, one was flagged, none were blocked. And this is the app itself, proudly bragging about its failing average
Seems to work for a few #’s Still getting used to it.
The only calls that have been flagged are from my husband that is in my contacts.
Don’t like that I have to come into the app and block each one. So the calls still ring with each new number
I am hopeful that this app will assist in reducing the flood of ‘spam’ calls I (& many others) receive.
The problem is the spammers, hackers, telemarketers, etc, will always be using new numbers to do their deeds. So this app WILL NOT block most numbers if you are always the earliest to get the calls with a new number. What we really need is for something like CAPTCHA for completing the call. Like “I had 5 apples and someone takes away 2 pears in exchange for 1 apple, how many apples do I have now?”
I pay for this, but the i.d. calling doesn’t really help as the scammers numbers just have a normal individual’s name. I’m in real estate, so don’t have option of ignoring calls from people I don’t know. My youmail account is actually more effective than this, at finding and blocking the noise. I’d highly recommend.
This app lets me have control over spam calls thank you so much!
Don’t work all the time....
I had to buy the next level of call protect so that unidentifiable call could be identified. It is a small fee monthly for some valuable peace.
I’ve been paying $3.99 a month for this app and it does not work. I still get spam calls, unknown, blocked, etc... I’ve tried the free ones and they actually work. K thought since I was an att customer I’d use this app they recommended. It does not work. Period
Love this service app!!
Should be zero stars!!! I’m not paying any sort of upgrade to the plus version. AT&T should be ashamed of themselves.
I got call from Indian scammers like 200 times within few days I flagged them n all but it keeps letting them call me doesn’t make since. N it comes up from Jamaica so pretty useless
Great and free
I love this Long over due Recommend to all
It would be best if the calls flagged as Telemarking or fraudulent are prevented to ring on the phone.
