Ratings and Reviews
Update fixed an issue
Really lacking in features. I’m paying three dollars for the service a month and it doesn’t tell me the calls that it has blocked automatically. I’d like a history of all the calls that it has automatically blocked on my phone.
As for the latest update that’s about 30 hours old as of the time of this review, it fixed a huge problem with the app that it basically was not allowing me to search numbers directly from my call list. However, there was nothing in the App Store on my iPhone that said there was a pending update. It could be that the update was throttled because it was so new. On a hunch, I went into the app in the App Store and I was just lucky to have seen that there was an update to the app. This is not the same as updating the call block list, which appears to work every time I open the app. It would be great if they call block list could be updated off-line without the app having to be open.
Might be nice to allow us to use the T-Mobile name ID app instead.
I’m not paying for it so there is that. However it doesn’t do what it says it will. I have it set to block all risk levels, but it blocks very little because the numbers keep changing faster than they can update their database. I’ve seen no additional caller ID information as promised. Another thing is, in the couple instances a number rang through that was already identified as spam/fraud, they were not labeled so I didn’t find out until I tried to add them as spam. Those are the only unwanted calls in my history that are not labeled spam/fraud & no label I try to add will stick???? Also there are too many steps to add to fraud list. There should be a way to default some of the settings and only override them when they’re different. We’re helping them build a database of bad numbers, for what I don’t know, and getting little to nothing in return. I’ll keep it now that I started with it, but if you haven’t installed it yet, I wouldn’t bother.
App ineffective & time consumptive & has the nerve to charge $
I can’t believe Sprint has the nerve to charge for such an ineffective app/service! I don’t mind paying for an app that actually does the job but I have heard that with other carriers the service is free and is working well. This app costs and does not do the job effectively. Before the iOS update at least the app auto-loaded the caller phone number into the app in order to report the caller. No more. Now I have to write it down so I can enter myself and then report it. So all those robocallers and scam auto warranty calls come through this app. Since I rarely answer I don’t even know, but what I’d like is for the app TO NOT COST ME IN TIME AND MONEY AND ACTUALLY DO THE JOB!!! And now I understand that with the update the Call Screener does not let me see the caller ID? This is ridiculous. Unless you want this for someone who is not smart enough not to answer random calls...save your money. This app barely accomplishes the task of blocking any calls. Save your money and time waiting on hold with Sprint customer service to bother getting this app!
