Awesome tool for screening
I LOVE this app!!! I don’t know how, but for some reason in the past few months I suddenly began receiving dozens and dozens of robo calls and telemarketing calls. Must have inadvertently disclosed my number on the wrong form. What REALLY annoyed me about it was that I am and have been on the National Do Not Call registry, which makes this contact illegal. However, because of my job I do often receive calls from unknown numbers, so I often pick up. I was so annoyed, I was quite honestly on the verge of changing my number entirely.
Anyway, downloaded this app after a recommendation. It tells you if the call you don’t recognise is a scam or suspected scam, and offers you the chance to block all future calls from that number. You can also add numbers to the block list at any point, and it’s very easy.
After a week with this app, my unwanted calls dropped from about 10-20 per day to 3-5, and now - two months in- I’m down to on average 2-3 per week. SO much better!
Works great at screening "neighbor-spoofed" calls
I've been getting "neighbor-spoofing" calls for months. I ignored the problem until I received an angry voicemail from a local woman (because my number is also being "spoofed," natch, popping up on other victims' caller ID), at which point I felt motivated to take more decisive, defensive measures against these obnoxious robocalls.
Mr Number has a setting to block these calls, plus phone calls from telemarketers and criminals alike. Since installing Mr Number a couple months ago, only two robocalls have slipped through. I did my civic duty and reported both numbers, with hopes that I can help protect my fellow humankind from these obnoxious and occasionally dangerous phone calls. I would not hesitate to install this app on the smartphone of a loved one, especially the elderly or the young.
I've been considering purchasing a subscription out of gratitude, but the base Mr Number app is already essentially robo-proof on its own.
First of all, to all the people who think that this app blocks calls that are in the master list. It doesn’t and it never says that in the description. My wife and I have been using it for a while and it helps to know who’s calling. If the number is in your block list, it will say so. It won’t block anyone in your contacts. I’m happy that it warns me about possible spoofing numbers.
Again, this app DOES NOT BLOCK calls. It is just a great way to get an idea of who’s calling.
As I have told my wife, “If you don’t recognize the number, don’t answer. If it’s important, they’ll leave a voicemail”. She uses the app now and agrees that it helps to know what calls to answer.
One bug in the last update: it prompts me to enable push updates/notifications and I have but it doesn’t seem to take the setting.
