It blocked everything 2/5
Robocalls, solicitors, and contacts, even after repeatedly entering the numbers as allowed calls. And I’d paid for a year. Had to go back to Hiya so my kids could get through to me.
Great app! 4/5
I use this and love it.
Only complaint -- even with Background App Refresh enabled, I still see a notification from the app every 24 hours asking me to open it so it can update.
If it could go much longer without notifying me, that would be super 100 awesome.
Has some more dev work to do 2/5
By American Voice
It works as advertised.
However, we can not yet ready view list of calls with the action this app took on each call. The current method of adding a number to the do not call list is impossible to use; it requires you to memorize the number in order to type it into a text box. Not user friendly on any account.
I will keep on checking this app for updates from the developer, and try again when the app is more Intuitive to use.
Now Broken 3/5
I purchased Nomorobo over 6 months ago and loved it, there have been no problems until now. Just as the other review on October 10 from wlaughlin said, it no longer works for me.
I'm running IOS 10.3.3 and you can no longer set Nomorobo to block calls under the Settings-Phone-Call Blocking & Identification settings. You get an error saying contact support.
EDIT: After uninstall, reinstall, and phone reset, app now works. Increasing to 3 stars.
Not ready for prime time 1/5
By Awfully PO'd
I truly want this app to work and be successful, but am not impressed so far. I downloaded it yesterday and within 24 hours, it has not stopped one Robocall. Rather, I am receiving them at a record rate, some within literally one minute of the other. Just goes to show you the national “do not call” list is worthless. At the end of my 30 trial, my hope to have changed my mind. There is likely no way to stop these irritating calls, but it would be nice to see that this app is actually proactively stopping some of them, versus listing ones I had already blocked via my iPhone. If my rating does not change, caveat emptor folks!
Doesn't really work very well UPDATED 2/5
After living with the app for some time I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s probably more trouble than it’s worth and definitely not worth the price I had to pay for it. In addition to really not doing a decent job of blocking calls from mobile phones in my area code, it also does not keep itself and its black list up-to-date automatically very well. I get a message every day or so reminding me that I need to open the app to update it. This is pretty poor software design. In contrast, Nomorobo for my landline works extremely well. It’s free, but that’s the one I’d be willing to pay for.
Even though the app recognizes calls with numbers similar to your cell exchange as robocalls--and says so--it labels them as "unblockable" and lets them through to your phone. There's a complicated explanation for this from the vendor on its website, but really, who cares? The app doesn't do an adequate job of stopping robocalls to cell phones. Which is what your paying for but not getting.
This Product Does Not Work 1/5
This app utilizes a Blacklist to identify nuisance calls, however many scammers are using random phone numbers to get around lists. Therefore, most robocalls are allowed. This product does not work.
Blocks Some, Still Get Calls Everyday 3/5
Definitely helps, but nowhere near complete
The calls stopped. Amazing!! 5/5
A snap to install, and it just works. Love it!
Paid Subscription Trick 1/5
By Alan Coughlin
Only a “free 30-day trial”. Don’t waste your time downloading. It’s just a scam.
Very Good 5/5
I used to get a lot of Robocalls but now I have none!😀 I love Nomorobo
Absolutely Love This App! 5/5
i absolutely LOVE this app! I used to have Hiya and Truecaller but i'd still get like 5 calls a day. Ever since i downloaded this app i rarely get calls, maybe 3 a week that's it! People are saying it doesn't work but i love it. Download it and try it for yourself and see what works for you! But for me, this is it! ❤️
Finally an effective to stop annoying robo callss 5/5
I used to receive annoying robo calls. I tried to block them one by one. But they used to change numbers immediately. I got tired. Then I installed this Nomorobo app. Immediately afterwards, the robo calls stopped calling my number👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾
Good but could be better 3/5
I was really impressed when I first started using this app but now after using it for awhile the spammers have adjusted! The app fails to block the 4-5 calls I get everyday now where the spammers are faking their caller ID and making it the same as my phones prefix (538)! Every single one of these calls is a Robocall and I report them all to the company, they just keep using different numbers!
By Review Madness
Good idea - poor implementation. Works sporadically. Many calls are blocked until it needs an “update”. About 3 times per week. Then you have to reactivate or refresh this stupid app. Frustratingly bad.
They sell your phone number. 1/5
Ever since I downloaded this app and set up the trial. In the same day I cancelled it because I didn’t want to deal with the subscription in 30 Days. So I have had 5 calls in the past 24 hours that have been robocalls. They are juicing their numbers to take you off their own do not call list. This is a sham. I haven’t had a single robo call in 2 months before downloading this app
Okay but not as promised 2/5
It seems to do some marking of numbers, but even with background app refresh turned on, it requires daily opening of the app to do the refresh. It won’t refresh in the background.
Since most of my spam comes from spoofed numbers, this app has limited use.
No more, I deleted Nomorobo after 1 year 1/5
By Radar O'Reiley
It worked well and was the best app I’ve ever used until the last week when Nomorobo started disallowing subscribers to report scam phone calls. I kept getting “can’t be reported at this time, please try later” with continuing text suggesting it was Apple’s fault (and it may well be since updating to IOS 11.
Needs IOS 11 update 3/5
Getting message that the app hasn’t updated in 12 days. App needs updating to be compatible with IOS 11 and later.
Does not block as many as it should 1/5
While it does block some robocallers, it does not block enough to justify the expense. I found myself reporting too many calls and doing their work for them. I will be canceling.
By Michigan Girl
How about a option to block unknown calls. You can block a spam or robo call, but if the caller decides to call unknown the app is useless to me. iPhone does not give the option to block unknown calls. But android does.
Used to work great!! 1/5
This app was great until 11.0 came out. At which time the app totally ceased to work. I got 15+ calls over 2.5 days before deleting the app
Done trying to get it to work 1/5
I have tried to get this app to work over and over again and it will not work. I don’t mean that it won’t block calls, it simply won’t enable in the Call Blocking & Identification section of Settings. I did all of the trouble shooting of uninstalling it that is on their helpdesk documentation and still nothing. Submitted an email asking what to do, informing them that I have tried the troubleshooting their site states to do and the only reply I received was they were sorry and being told to try the troubleshooting on their site with a link to it. I have reached out on Twitter with no reply. I blasted trough my free trial awhile ago and kept it on my phone attempting to enable it after any updates but I am done trying. Glad to see that it works for some but, I have seen all to many people complaining that it won’t enable. If it is a bug an Apples part they really need to get this worked out and not allow these types of extensions to be sold in the App Store.
This is what I've been waiting for 3/5
This blocks some calls. It misses phone numbers that are similar to my own Blacklist updates fail to run automatically, so it must be done manually every day. If you have a family or mor than one phone, you can’t use this app. I stuck with this app since it’s release, but have to move on to something that better suits my needs.
Piece of junk 1/5
Terrific app! 5/5
Beginning in February, I suddenly started getting inundated with phone calls even though my number is on the do not call list. The calls came daily and I was soon getting 15-20 calls a day. Since I got Nomorobo, that has dropped to 0. That’s ZERO, nada, zilch, zip. I have to answer calls even if I don’t know the number, and Nomorobo has not interfered with regular calls coming through, even from overseas. I am more grateful than I could ever express. Thank you so much!
Almost flawless 5/5
By Taylor Hively
This is the one. It works reliably and after turning it from identify to block, my phone hasn't rang (except when I want it to.)
I was getting 2 to 5 spam/scam/robo calls per day.
It’s certainly not perfect because an iOS limitation doesn’t allow the app to send the phone number to their servers for real-time analysis, so it can only block numbers in the (continually updated) list. Therefore new numbers may not yet be identified or many robocall era now spoof numbers, and nothing can deal with that except maybe your carrier.
Suggestion: Get this and put it in order at #1 top of the list in settings>phone>call blocking.
Add "Hiya" app as a secondary for identify, which may catch the few iffy ones that might get through.
Will not update 1/5
I have contacted apple. AT&T and emailed this company.
The APP WILL NOT UPDAT THE BLACK LIST!
It is not free 3/5
By Sergey Finesse
Omg it works!! 5/5
Used to get 5-6 robo calls daily. They have all STOPPED!! Its really amazing... Great app!!
Does not update automatically- no customer support 1/5
Robocalls come through regularly because the app does not refresh automatically.
Following the advice on their website does not solve the problem.
There is no customer service. I have sent them several emails over multiple days asking for help. None of my emails were answered and they did not provide any help.
Go for another app.
Has gone downhill 2/5
No longer works well after iOS 11 install
Doesn't update in background
Stopped Working 2/5
Is no longer blocking or identifying robocalls on latest update. :/
Scam!! Said was free not!! 1/5
I went to get this app because when I went on the national do not call registry they said this was free and went to AT&T they said the service was free I gave them all my personal info and then they wanted $1.99 a month or $19 for a year that is not free that is a scam
Works ONLY on 800 numbers 1/5
This is great at blocking 800 or 866 etc numbers but so many telemarketers now use numbers with same prefix as your mobile number so calls get through. Keep your money and just don't answer it if you don't recognize it.
Must have app these days 5/5
Before NomoRobo I got so many spam calls a day. Now almost all of them get blocked!
This app is well worth the monthly cost if you hate robo calls. I work in IT so any time my phone rings I can’t ignore it, so I have to cut out the noise. NomoRobo support was also excellent when there was a past iOS bug and the app wouldn’t stay on. They resolved that!
Won’t run! 1/5
This app will not run on my iPhone 6 with IOS 11.0
I want to stop my subscription now.
No more annoying sales calls 5/5
Since I have installed this App I have not received any annoying telemarketing calls, the cost is well worth it to have peace of mind and not be interrupted by people calling you reading their scripts and acting like they know you. I recommend this app for anyone being harassed by telemarketers or calls you don't want.
Not working after three months 3/5
By Ocean hair
I can't get the button under the phone location in the settings to implement Nomorobo...... been this way for a couple of weeks now......making it totally useless!
HEY CREATORS what's going on? Let's get this app FIXED.....if you can't I want my money back!!!!!!
No longer updated under iOS 11 1/5
Seems to no longer being updated under ios11. It used to update in the background and it no longer does that. I have also noticed that it no longer tells you if it goes longer than 24 hours of being updated. Also have tried to manually update it a few times and noticed it did not update.
I get multiple spam calls daily, and it's rare that Nomorobo correctly identifies one as such and blocks it. Occasionally when reviewing call history I'll see a spam call that was originally allowed through is later flagged, which is not helpful. It's like having a radar detector tell you that the guy writing you a ticket is a cop.
Doesn't block anything on mobile 1/5
Works great at home, but doesn't catch ANYTHING on my mobile. I've got an iPhone w/AT&T and that could be it, but then what's the point of the app and paying $10?? I report everything, but sooooo irritating that it doesn't catch them.
It works 4/5
By Ali Engin
I have been using this app for a couple months now and it's been proven worthy. I'm just really annoyed by being have to manually updating it everyday.
Great for land line. Not so much for mobile. 1/5
We have this app on Home line and it works great. I paid for the updated version on my cell phone, and it missed just about everything. Would not recommend it. I got better results with Mr. Number. And it was free.
Don't bother with this. 1/5
Earlier this year it worked well. Lately, though, it's been so exasperating that I have canceled my subscription.
The issues are as many other reviewers here describe.
At least several times weekly I receive a notification that the blacklist is a day old and needs updating. This is even after launching the app so that it's running in the background.
What's worse is that it doesn't block calls from spoofed numbers similar to my own, which constitute the bulk of the spam calls I receive.
If the app can identify them as robocalls, it should be able to block them.
Give us the option to block all calls with the same interchange and allow us to whitelist specific numbers.
Never shows up in the settings to enable 1/5
Trying to set up the app but Nomorobo never pops in the Block and Identification section under Settings-->Phone to enable it.
By KS Flatlander
Never stopped a single call. Finally stopped excepting my reports of actual robocalls. Only success of app was charging & collecting monthly subscription fee.
Fine Print 1/5
I'm elderly and I saw the word "Free" by the App for Nomorobo. No, I didn't read the fine print- me bad, but was shocked when I was charged $1.99 and would be every month. I had told many of my also elderly neighbors about it and have told them it was free. We can't afford $1.99 a month. I feel I might have gotten several of them in a pickle now. Ugh!
No perfect but very good 5/5
Most of the failures are really the result of Apple having just added support for call blocking apps on iOS. Give it time and it will improve - keeps getting better and better!
Keeps not refreshing 4/5
Since iOS 11 betas and still with final release, it’s always beeping at me about needing to be refreshed. It’s the one app I always keep running. I’d wish it would just refresh on its own.
