App works as it should.
I see a lot of really bad reviews. A lot. And they are all coming from pretentious individuals who believe everything should be handed to them. So let’s settle this. Your number is public information. It can be found easily. Spam calls, robo-calls, whatever you want to label it, are not very different from spam emails. You’re going to get them. This app will help keep the amount of those calls from coming through, but it doesn’t stop them all. It can’t, realistically. I’ve been issuing since day one, and as time goes on, I get less and less spam calls. If you’re using this app, do your part and report those spam numbers as they come it. That’s how the database is built. By the consumer. Is that too much work for you? Then drop your service with Verizon, toss you phone in the trash, and start using smoke signals. Because that is the ONLY way you can stop all the spam calls.
Frustrating setup, but works great!
It took me over a week to fully set up this app so that it integrates with my iPhone. I’m not sure why I didn’t give up. But I’m glad I didn’t; one set up properly, this app works great. I was already paying for the advanced collar ID service, but all that did was improve the information that was Displayed with each car. This app actually stops the calls sending them to voicemail instead of annoying me all day long. It’s not perfect; but it is a significant improvement over life without it. If you do purchase this app, take the time to read the instructions, the Q&A and the tutorial. Be sure to note the statement that it takes up to a minute for the feature to be added to the Apple Phone app. For me it actually took many tries over several days before the feature actually showed up in the settings for the Phone app and I was able to enable the call suppression feature.
Getting Better Over Time ... with all our input and help...
IMHO ... I think this is the possible beginning of a change in the SPAM War... Please know that if you block a Verizon call on an IOS iPhone - those blocked numbers will not ring through - but still will go to voice mail - where they can leave a voicemail AND if they do those Blocked Number Voicemails WILL NOT ALSO SHOW UP ON YOUR IPHONE’s Visual VoiceMail on your phone!!! To use Verizon’s SPAM Filter EFFECTIVELY esp with iPhone (not sure if it’s the same for Androids) UNBLOCK ALL NUMBER’s on your iPhone! ... and let the call Filter Do It’s Job. The more of us who use it the smarter it becomes... More and more often - on calls that the Filter knows actually to be SPAM - the Filter is self-blocking those out - they never ring through - but you still get a memo of what number and when that number’s call was blocked. Hopefully in the future, as the Filter sees more and more quick hang ups from all of us... the system will backtrack the VOIP data to its originator and start monitoring z AZ and slamming shut each of the numbers it’s temporarily using to SPAM us. If say even 20% of all of Verizon accounts have this in app’s feedback to our responses to calls ... it should put a major dent in yet a larger number of the SPAM we’re all receiving.
