I was paying for the premium call filter and it was working just fine. I did get a few calls slip through but that is to be expected with spoof callers as well as I found it annoying that they could still leave voicemails but overall I was happy. That was until today. We just recently experienced an earthquake and I tried to call my sister and boyfriend and I got a Verizon error message. I was confused and thought maybe something happened and my bill didn’t get paid so I check, nope, I was fine. I tried calling my mom and dad and that worked which was even more confusing. Finally after troubleshooting I went to the app and removed the blocking feature and I was able to make a call. The annoying thing about is I let the app auto block for me so nothing showed up on my block list but when I turned off I could call. So annoying! The app should have shown me what numbers were being auto blocked so if there was a mistake I could fix it but it didn’t. I don’t know if it’s because I’m an iPhone user or what but that was annoying and alarming considering what just happened.
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 started receiving calls from my own phone number (spoofing) so I called Verizon and they suggested call filter turned on on their end which was free then also suggested I get the app for additional features. So I did both. App installed and I set it up and subscribed for an additional 2.99 a month. Everything worked fine until about an hour ago. All of a sudden I couldn’t make calls or receive calls. I’d get dead air then call failed error or I would get all circuits are busy now message. On incoming calls I couldn’t hear anything and the caller obviously couldn’t hear me. First I reset all settings. Then restarted phone. Nothing. Next I chatted with tec support via the Verizon app. Ran test on my line said it was fine. So next I went into my Verizon app and canceled the call filter app subscription. Then went into settings/phone and turned off call filter. Uninstalled app, then ran magic cleaner. Went in and reset settings. Rebooted phone. Still nothing. Around 15 to 20 minutes later i received a phone call then checked if I could also make calls again. It worked. Sorry Verizon I love you but won’t be installing or using your call filter app again.
Update #2: It would be really nice to have Verizon address directly the question of why so many calls are labeled robocall, potential spam call, etc. but they still ring through? This has been asked in numerous reviews and Verizon still has never given an answer that I’ve seen other than some generic nonsense. Update: After using this for several months, I’ve probably only seen maybe two calls blocked. Since virtually all spam calls nowadays appear to be spoofed, I don’t think reporting a number really does anything. Sometimes the scammers even seem to be spoofing legitimate numbers. Until Verizon has a way to deal with spoofed numbers, I don’t really see a way to effectively block spam calls. I’m not sure this app does anything. I can’t say I’ve seen anything blocked. It has identified some calls as “potential spam.” However, even though I have the app set to block all spam, including potential spam, these calls still merrily come through and are not sent to VM. Verizon has such a good network. It’s kind of embarrassing they don’t have a more effective call blocker app. I won’t even talk about Verizon charging $3 per month for this app.
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.
