Ratings and Reviews
Blocks spam, but not if they’re collection agencies!
I got this app, TrueCaller, and its only works part of the time. Understanding there are constantly new numbers added to the spam list, I expect to update the app database daily. Not that big of a deal. The problem is, it clearly identifies a spam caller, but still allows some through. I have found it blocks legitimate spam calls as I recently put my resume online and immediately began getting spam calls. I bought the new iPhone X 256GB, but neglected to turn the blocking options on in settings. Once that was done, no more spam calls... or so I thought. The calls I was receiving, promising job opportunities, required me to sign up for more school. Holding two bachelors and a masters degrees, I politely told the first few I had no interest in school and explained my education level. If you refuse their persistence in signing up for school, they rudely say they can’t help. Truecaller stopped these. However, while clearly marked in red a call is spam and you answer, you will find they let collection agency calls through. I’ve had my number for 10 years now and still get collection calls for someone I don’t know! I haven’t found any better app out there, though, so the collection calls will have to manually be rejected.
Need consistent, frequent app store updates
Love the idea of this app and really appreciate it. It seems to work well at blocking spam callers, HOWEVER, I hate that it doesn’t automatically update on its own; notify you when there’s a new update available; or even show up in the app store to show there’s an update. As a result, I still get spam calls more than I should because they are not included until I go open the app, check if there’s an update, and then initiate it myself. Imagine if we had to do this with all apps? That would be obnoxious. I really hope we can get regular/frequent app updates for this via the app store so we dont have to constantly go in this app and check ourselves. It would save time and stress.
Do Not Use with T-Mobile - More Than Worthless
My cellular provider is T-Mobile (USA). I use T-Mobile’s Scam Shield service and app. I installed Truecaller, hoping it would catch the few spam calls that Scam Shield does not (one or two a month), but, in the 6-9 months I had it installed, Truecaller only showed two calls as spam and they were both legitimate calls. One was Verizon’s Sales department returning my call. (I manage my parents’ Verizon account.) I don’t remember the other one. Truecaller also marked a couple dozen legitimate text messages as Promotional and Junk. Some of those marked as Junk (and therefore had their notifications suppressed when they came in) were from a 911 Computer Aided Dispatch system (used to notify first responders of emergencies and provide address and situational info). These alerts are followed by other notification methods, but the time it takes to receive an alternate notification and take down an address can have a significant negative impact when every minute counts. Truecaller also failed to mark as spam all of the political calls and texts before the U.S. elections.
So, if you have T-Mobile, use T-Mobile’s Scam Shield and don’t bother with Truecaller. And, if you receive critical text messages, DO NOT enable Truecaller’s SMS filtering.
