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.
Randomly starts blocking all calls!
The app quit working and started blocking all calls. There’s no way to see this is happening because it doesn’t tell you when it’s blocked calls and the calls don’t show up in recent cal history. I only figured it out after someone called my home phone to ask why I didn’t answer my iPhone. At that point, after troubleshooting, I realized I wasn’t receiving any calls at all on my iPhone, but to the person calling, it rings like normal and then goes to voicemail. In troubleshooting that issue, I tried to turn off spam filtering and it wouldn’t turn off. That allowed me to realize it’s probably what was causing the issue so I uninstalled it and bingo. I started receiving calls again.
I reinstalled it a few days later and it worked for about a week before it started blocking all calls again! I’ve uninstalled it for good now.
In addition, you can’t block #’s with the app. Verizon requires you to pay a monthly fee to block more than a small amount of #’s (I think it’s 10). It’s unethical to charge consumers to stop unwanted calls because it shows you have no incentive to help fix the issue of spam calls since you’re using them to make money. How long before Verizon starts helping spammers so the problem becomes some bad all Verizon customers are forced to sign up for their blocking service?
I downloaded the Call Filter app and used the free plan it provides but Verizon can choose to automatically sign you up for the Plus version and charge you $2.99 a month. I didn’t realize this until I noticed my bill was getting a few dollars higher and higher each month and I hadn’t ordered or purchased anything so I done some digging on My Verizon App and I found what the charges were and that Verizon could enroll you in it themselves without even verifying or confirming it with you before hand and was VERY upset!! I then figured out how to take off the Call Filter Plus from my bill and did so but more then likely will not get my 2.99 back for each month they charged without my permission, unfortunately. And it being Easter Sunday, plus with Covid-19 accommodations I can not get in touch with anyone from Verizon about getting a refund if possible until 7am tomorrow morning Monday, April 12th 2020. So my advice would be to not download this app at all unless you want the “Plus” Version because they will automatically sign you up for it anyways and you won’t know until you realize you bill is increasing monthly without any changes you have made yourself.
