How to report SMS Spam
I have been putting up with these calls for about 2 yrs now. These telemarketing companies have about 200-300 extensions at each location. When they call and believe me u will know if it is one before u answer because it will say on your phone identifier “United States”; no name available or some other name u know is not identifiable. What AT&T needs to do is Monitor these calls and inform them of harassment charges that can be brought against them if they continue this unwanted activity. I have over 2000 phone #’s in my block phone # list on my phone. Sometimes I receive 4 to 5 of these phone calls each day. If they tell u to select item 2 to be put on there “do not call list” do not think they will not call u again. And if u block that call they will just call u on one of the other 200 lines the have at the call center. [email protected] must take a more aggressive approach to this “big” problem!!
How many times do they need to send me a pin to verify my number!!! After the sixth time I gave up.
You have to manually block calls.
Already paying AT&T for phone service. Now they want to charge you to not get calls from spammers.
Get your act together att
Allows too many calls through, even when they are labeled as telemarketer or spam. Does not fix the problem.
Best addition to AT&T. Scammers are under control out of my life!!!
Still getting too many robo calls
Calls marks as potential ATT scam on caller ID are not automatically blocked?
“Reverse Call Lookup” should be free. Before I report an “Unknown Caller” as spam, I’d like to verify the caller. Some unknown callers may be people I know who are calling me from a different legitimate phone number.
Sure... it flags calls as telemarketers, but they still ring. I thought it would stop the calls from even coming through, but it sure doesn’t. Furthermore, it does absolutely nothing to block the robocalls, so I still get endless calls from numbers with the same area code and first three digits as my phone number. Perhaps I’d be more impressed if I upgraded to the premium services... but I already pay AT&T a lot of money... I shouldn’t have to dish out more. If you’re using the basic app without upgrading, it’s pretty pointless as far as I can tell.
Most features are useless unless you pay to upgrade. I expected this app to have some intelligence and block spam without even the call coming in. I have had no reduction in traffic and most useful features are paid only.
I thought paying for the premium version it will be a great blocker for unwanted incoming calls but for my surprise it’s not. What it does block calls from real ppl and those risky calls keep coming . Hope they do Something about it
This app is useless. I still receive many spam and telemarketing calls throughout the day. The FEW calls that the app actually catches, its just a caller ID letting you know it’s a spam call. Rarely does it actually block the numbers. Also, a few times when I have reported and blocked a number through this app it still let the same phone number call me the next day. AT&T needs to work on protecting our information instead of creating useless apps.
Love this program, I can enjoy my phone without all the bs calls.
Total garbage. It just doesn’t work at all. If anything I get more Robo calls than I did before. Why does AT&T even bother with this junk. Robo call blocking should be built-in as part of the iPhone.
Does a great job blocking all unwanted calls
If there is no way to identify these calls from spoofed phone number as bot calls PLEASE!! Add a function to just block all calls not in your contacts list and then add a section to view only those specific blocked calls in case you want white list them or add them to your contacts
