App becoming more unreliable 2/5
By Anonymous 3887
I’ve been using this app for several years. It has always had glitches but it should be more reliable by now. More often than not these days, the Paste phone number function is missing. I am researching alternative apps.
I tapped App Support in the App Store and got a Page Not Found message.
Reduced phone calls 5/5
This app has helped cut down junk phone calls. I look up every call and see if anyone reported the call. Regardless if the car is spam or legitimate, I update the app so others will know. I hope others do this as well.
Seems to only be effective at number lookuo 2/5
Doesn’t seem to block much even when left on all the time. Calls just come on through. I am a lifetime subscriber and I wish I had gone with something different in retrospect.
No Caller ID 5/5
I was told by a Verizion tech that Mr. Number would block calls I’ve been getting from No Caller ID. I have not been able to find a way to block this unidentified number using your app. If you can I’d appreciate your help.
Try entering the complete number from No Caller ID in to Mr. Number. Hopefully that will work for you.
Not giving out the right info on a number
Does not block spam texts 1/5
Looked everywhere to see if it blocked texts. It does not and you have to manually add every number you want to block. Waste of maney.
Used to be good.... 1/5
This went from being a highly effective app to mediocre at best. There is no way I can find to send a message to MR. NUMBER.
The paste option to search a number no longer works. The Add to Contacts no longer works as the “Done” button is no longer there. Yes, I have the newest version and have rebooted my iPhone X. With working with the public and all the Spam calls, it would be great to have Mr Number working effectively again.
Doesn’t block spam texts 2/5
Let’s too many spam text messages through!
Good Caller ID App 4/5
It's been a good app so far. It allows me to block caller phone numbers. I wish I could block all calls from just a particular area code but I can only find where I can block by area code and first three prefix numbers after area code. It requires at least 6 digits to black. I want to block by area code...three digits. Other than that it has been a helpful App let's you do a number lookup on numbers which I liked does a good job identifying Telemarking incoming calls.
So grateful for this app! 5/5
I cannot believe I went this long without this app. It is potentially and legitimately a lifesaver.a worth every penny.
Easy and thorough 5/5
Love it. Works seamlessly. Saves so much time
Have to manually add and block every call I get 2/5
If you don’t have exactly the phone plan that is approved by Mr Number or Hiya-The only thing I can do with this app is use it to look up numbers by hand. It does nothing automatically.
**update-10/20/20-I’ve been writing in the comments about the calls I get. My bad type calls started with getting a few a week. But since I started using this app to identify calls and added comments to help others I’m now getting an unknown caller every 15-30 minutes for 6-7 hours every day. Thank God my IPhone doesn’t ring these calls.
I really do think this is a problem with Mr Number. So I’m not sure if I feel it’s worth buying a subscription to use this app.
I’ve kept my full review just in case.
I’ve heard that many of this phone identifying and call blocking, trapping, blacklisting apps have problems because of the of your selected cell carrier. Or in other words they don’t work with every cell carrier. The sad part is you would think you could be notified before you buy or try. But I’ve just looked up 10 different caller identify, trapping type apps and none have information about the service not working with certain cell carriers.
I believe this is the biggest problem with most all of these apps. They just don’t work with all cell carriers. And if you don’t know this then you pay for something that was never intended to work for you.
I have Consumer Cellular. I now know that 90% of the caller ID, trapper, blocking type apps do NOT work they way they are advertised and described. It doesn’t matter that some will let you know, after you buy it, that your cell carrier has to be able to do XYZ.
Example, call trapper advised that I had to have a service that allowed call forwarding. Well Consumer cellular doesn’t that. They also work off all of ATT’s towers for range etc. But some will try and use the excuse that because it’s not one if the big carriers-well too bad.
I’m pretty sure that’s the issue with Mr Number. I can pay to use it. But I have to manually do everything myself. If I want to find out the caller ID, I have to put the number in by hand. If I want to block a specific number, I have to put the number in by hand. Nothing is done automatically.
If the truth be told I was ok with that, until most numbers were not identified. I could input the number and it wouldn’t tell me anything. No name etc. Only numbers that had been previously tagged by others would show any info.
So regardless of Mr Number not doing most everything. I just want to be able to know who the hang up callers are. The call doesn’t come in as no caller ID. Those calls you can’t even get the phone number. These are just phone numbers that don’t show a name or anything unless someone else has tagged them as fraud, spam, political or whatever.
I’ve tried to find out if numbers that have no name at all associated with it, are they spam callers? I’ve not found out anything.
So if anyone knows how to really Identify callers that call-give a name for a person, place or thing. I’ll take anything but a blank.
By Call me sorry
It tell me too many time NO NAME AVAILABLE, not worth the money
Was a great app 1/5
For Android. I recently moved to iOS from Android. This WAS the app I would recommend to everyone. It worked. Was worth its subscription price, hands down. Now? In iOS? It’s a joke! It never identified any number that rang through. I had to manually add numbers into be blocked.
This was the first app I put in my new phone. Total disappointment.
Buyer beware! 1/5
By The Murdoc
I’ve had this app almost since it came out, from free to the $15/yr. It worked well and I was happy with it. The $25/yr price increase put me off and now I receive more spam calls then I ever did.
Look at the other reviews and you’ll see they’re targeting you if you drop the service. It’s very likely they’re selling the data.
Reported this app.
Best app 5/5
By Rap 311
Never thought I would be able to block all the junk calls. You must try this app
Not good 1/5
Does not block for iPhone as well as it does on android
Does it’s job 4/5
Does it’s job for the most part but lately there has been a new phone number that is sending text about undelivered pkg etc and Mr Number isn’t keeping up with it
Does not block Sms spam. Increasingly used by fraudsters. 2/5
By Knotted Knickers
You don't give a name. All other information we can get it on Google for free. This app is not worth it.
Doesn’t do any thing 1/5
By Avoise of Reason
It’s not blocked any calls that I can tell. Still getting the same amount I was before. I’ve added 80+ calls to be blocked in just 4 weeks. I’ve added prefixes to spoofing, but it only allows 20. It need to allow hundreds! This is a real drawback to the effectiveness of this app.
Not working with iSO 14 1/5
It worked well with other versions but after the update it no longer blocked calls on my ISO 14 phone
5 stars 5/5
By Mike - Myrtle Beach, SC
Should have done this years ago. Thanks for putting an end to unwanted call.
Doesn’t work 1/5
I still get spam and roto calls it doesn’t work
Lookup doesn’t take the copied phone # about 90% Potential Spam the time anymore 1/5
No longer works with iOS 14 1/5
Was great until I updated to iOS 14. This no longer works at all so I’m getting a ton of spam calls, of course right after I re-upped my subscription. Link to contact app support doesn’t work. Please give me my money back.
Doesn’t always paste number when copied
Time is money 1/5
It’s really annoying and fn rude when apps and companies have you download their app and make you go through a bunch of crap THEN tell you how much it’s gonna cost. Why don’t you just say it ahead of time and save people to time. HaHa!! Not funny!!
Affordable builder 5/5
By El Quichelense
It works great!
Mr. Ward 2/5
By el Wardino
I wanted an app that would identify who is calling. What I’m getting 3/4 of the time is a notification that this is likely spam, with no identification of who is spamming me. I already know it is spam because I don’t recognize the number.
No longer works with iOS 14 2/5
iOS 14 no longer has call blocking capability with an outside app, so I cannot allow Mr Number under settings. I have a paid annual subscription till next summer, and now it’s worthless.
Could be better 2/5
I’m sorta happy with the app However I wish it identified callers when they are calling as opposed to after. Also I wish it blocked spam callers altogether from calling!
Love it 5/5
Love this app 🤣 exposes all the losers
Spam still gets through 3/5
By Hockey rob
Spam calls still get through. Usually the app identifies number as potential spam etc.
Not pleased 1/5
Wish to cancel
I currently use Hiya and the two recent updates In coming calls and out going calls the caller ID IS NOT SHOWN ON MY iPhone SE 2020.
I wanted to try this one since I paid for annual subscription for Hiya.
I want to switch without paying this developer again.
My subscription for hiya ends next year and I would have to file complaints.
Doesn’t catch any spam 1/5
Not very happy with us because it doesn’t catch the spam doesn’t catch the frauds
Add area code blocking 2/5
Would be great if you could block area codes, you wouldn’t have to block as many numbers for iPhone
Great app 5/5
By Olivia Sable
Works good and fast can’t complain.
Not Pleased 2/5
I remember the older version would allow you to enter the area code of a phone number that you wanted to block and it will block the calls the current version does not do that it is not blocking any calls it only tells you if it is suspected spam not liking this version and also not paying for it anymore
By Meme Neetay
Don’t waste your time downloading. Use to be free. Now you have to pay to get the name of the person calling you!! Ummmm what’s the purpose ? I recommend downloading Truecaller it works great and it’s free!! You can thank me later😘
Mr Number call blocker. 3/5
Somewhat useful. At first the calls almost stopped but are now increasing in frequency.
Need to come up with a new plan mr # or I need a new app to help me out.
Almost every number shows no name 2/5
By Pain in our pooter on the road
It would be helpful if it showed who was possibly calling but most every number shows no information.
Does nothing anymore 1/5
By 2020 as an App
The app does nothing anymore, I can copy and paste numbers to look up that I already know are spam, that’s about it. Back in the day when it was just free it would block all spam and pop up every call, now it does nothingggg SAVE YOUR MONEY!! I have all settings on and able to do whatever it is it does now, and it legit does squat. Wasted $25
No Longer Works 1/5
This was an okay app, it never really blocked anything, you need to add numbers to the block list, the app should do this for you. Now that Apple is on iOS 14, this app no longer works, I can paste new phone numbers, I have to enter them manually but you can no longer block or report the number, the app tells you to change settings that no longer exist on the phone??? I think I’m over the BS with this but I have yet to find a way to keep them from charging me.
