Verizon Call Filter app reviews

  • App doesn’t work 1/5

    By Insured5333
    App doesn’t connect to Verizon servers and does not work at all. Useless application. I would rate it zero stars if I could.
  • Waste 1/5

    By ahubb90
    Does not block “no caller ID” or “unknown caller “ so basically if a scammer blocks their number your phone blows up… this is a paid service
  • Verizon unsubscribed me 3/5

    By VeryGrumpy12121212
    We have call filter plus on all lines. But guess what, Verizon unsubscribed me. Still paying for it though; in VZ app it is listed as subscribed.
  • Makes problem worse 1/5

    By AEAZ99
    Enabling call filter will remove the calling party number from the incoming call screen. So if its an “unknown” caller, you wont be able to see the number unless you check your call history. Caller ID names are mostly wrong anyway.
  • Not getting calls 2/5

    By not wortg it
    Call Filter has been blocking a couple of numbers in my contact list. I’ve checked allow number whenever it’s blocked. Call filter still blocks the number from coming through. And it doesn’t always blocked spam calls, telemarketers, etc either. Tech support can’t figure out why this is happening.
  • Doesn’t work with e sim 1/5

    By doesnt work with e sim
    Doesn’t work with e sim… please fix! Says I’m not on the Verizon network when I obviously am
  • Pretty Worthless 1/5

    By Oldbrat
    I spend all my time loading numbers for it has only blocked 3 calls in an entire week. Just pushing block is easier.
  • Did not work at all 1/5

    By Tbogie
    Spam calls actually got worse. Verizon kept bugging me about downloading the app then told me I need to pay the extra 2.99 to try and make it better with no real guarantee. Just better off to silence unknown callers and let them leave a message.
  • Ineffective and poor UI 1/5

    By Dachman
    This catches 25-50% and doesn’t have an easy way to report the ones that get through. Also, while I had international blocking on, kept getting calls from Mexico…
  • Junk 2/5

    By Gregory R_93
    “SERVER CONNECTION IS UNAVAILABLE” day in and day out. App says not to delete and re-install. Let’s go!
  • Make reporting easier 3/5

    By Rpking111
    The easier it is for us to report robo callers the better your service will be. It should be an option from the phone app.
  • Don’t pay … for what should be free! 1/5

    By CarbnKnight1
    So disappointed - blocks only a few calls. Receiving more unblocked: Robo Calls, Unknown Callers, and Fake listed names than I was before installing App. Useless!!!!
  • Not worth the space used to store on your iPhone!!!!! 1/5

    By DickTheStick
    I am a Verizon customer. I tried this app for several months. It only blocks 5 numbers for 90 days, then that number is out there free to send bogus calls to you!!! In short, it’s useless. You can purchase a plan to block calls, but if the trial doesn’t work, what could you expect from a paid version? This service should be provided to Verizon customers anyway. If it was, Verizon could probably increase their customer base. Just an opinion from a none business person! Better yet any provider should consider it as a driving force to increase its customer base!!!!
  • Call filter 5/5

    By Cowboy5090

  • Many calls blocked 5/5

    By p14181
    This app helps to block many calls. It doesn’t seem to catch any that come in on the local area code of which I get 6-7 a day. It would be great if there was an easier way (now I use copy & paste) to send the spam calls over to this app.
  • Bug fixes? Only a$$h0le$ post this 1/5

    By CarlosYanez
    There’s more you can tell the reader what was done in this update. Lazy @$$€$. Bug fixes equals a$$h0les.
  • Should be FREE! 1/5

    By jebidiah springsteen
    It breaks down like this: The FCC created the no call list. That’s a joke. The FCC required our carriers to implement Stir / shaken. While it appears to have helped (temporarily??), every day more scam calls get through. The FCC oversees all of the carriers. The carriers KNOW exactly who is making the scam calls. The carriers, monitored by the FCC are allowed to charge you monthly, per line for a service to block the calls that are illegal and knowingly processed on their network! Only in America.
  • I think it works. lol 3/5

    By Gator (Connecticut)
    Latest update crashes on iPhone 12. But… I deleted and reinstalled and it seems to be okay now.
  • Still no eSIM Support 1/5

    By umich2000
    Every other providers app supports eSIM except Verizon. Why?
  • App not working 3/5

    By CRZ575757
    The app will not open even after RE download multiple times. Restarts and setting changes do not fix the problem. Please advise.
  • App hangs on startup. 1/5

    By Just1what1the1dr1ordered
    I have paid for the full version but ever since the last update, the app just hangs on the white opening screen. Previous versions and updates had no issues like this, sad this update was so catastrophic. Customers have complained up here for two weeks and nothing. At least they could roll back the app so at least some customers could use the app. Poor version control.
  • Useless 1/5

    By Da_Otaku King
    I’m a Verizon customer using Verizon wireless service and when I open app it reeks me I have to be on Verizon network. Again I am currently on Verizon network
  • Blocked calls from my contact list 2/5

    By Queenkp
    This is a good, but lately it blocked my home and work numbers.
  • Useless 1/5

    By DrGhaedi
    Has yet to block a single robocall.
  • App not working 1/5

    By TV1963
    Emailed as they suggested did everything that they said still does it work this spinning around and spinning around and not loading I’m canceling this thing it worked for a little while for probably almost a year actually I haven’t had it working in over two weeks
  • Identity of caller 5/5

    By kelvinallen
    If the caller could have an identity it would be helpful when it is a called from your doctor office on a line you do not have listed.
  • App freezes and locks constantly 1/5

    By 183815
    once setup was completed, the app no longer works. it just gets stuck on the home page no matter force reboot or force quit.
  • Doesn’t filter most spam calls 1/5

    By Migdala
    It has not been working at all. In any given day I will get over 5 spam calls.
  • Unable to deactivate FREE version. 1/5

    By joannspil
    Spammed by Verizon’s spam filter. Unable to deactivate. Will block non-spam calls. Guess they want me to subscribe.
  • Why 1/5

    By jasnstu
    Why would I use this app? The features it offers are already part of the OS. If it was able to block texts the same way it blocks calls, it might be useful…
  • Blocking caller so that they will not call me back 2/5

    By Mary*Garrett
    I push on the icon on the phone number i want to block and nothing works even though it shows blocked in contact. Help???
  • App stopped working after the last update 1/5

    By Tbsintsq
    Spins and spins. Deleted reinstalled. Logged out logged in. Restarted iPhone. Useless now. Thank you for nothing.
  • Latest Update 1/5

    By RDawg1234!!??
    App wont open for me and freezes/crashes since the last update. Not sure if anyone else has this issue but would love if they could take a look and resolve. I’ll update rating once it’s usable. Worth noting I am using the paid version so it’s very frustrating.
  • Stopped Working (again) 2/5

    By IndyTI
    Since the last update (review date of 8/18/21) the app no longer opens, and stopped working all together. Therefore, not only can I add numbers to the call block list (app doesn’t load) but all the robocallers have a gateway in. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling but that didn’t solve the problem. Before this issue, my phone was a pleasant device sitting near me but now all the calls continue to come in. Seems a waste of money to pay for a service that’s broken. Please fix!
  • Worse than useless 1/5

    By morganagain
    Not only does it not block any of the numerous spam calls I get daily, but it does block legitimate calls from businesses and delivery drivers. Not only that, but trying to manage the settings often makes the app fail or crash.
  • Best thing ever 5/5

    By germwart
    I love Call Filter. I was getting so many calls about Medicare that it was annoying. Thank goodness I am no longer bothered by them. Also I was receiving calls from other countries. Thank you Call Filter . My phone is no longer getting these unwanted calls.
  • Latest version doesn’t work 1/5

    By RoadRunner505
    App won’t open. Just stalls. Spam calls get through and can’t report spam.
  • Garbage that does not work 1/5

    By aigsifsgsotaotaog
    This thing never works. I get more spam calls now than before I installed this crappy scam.
  • App is broken after update 1/5

    By Why did you change it
    Latest update has made it impossible to open the app to get to controls
  • Useless 1/5

    By Ctll033
    App worked OK for about a week after I downloaded it. Now it won’t launch and locks up when I try. Can’t get hold of technical support.
  • Started blocking my own phone number 2/5

    By Keith in Tucson
    Significant improvement over nothing, boxy occasional call, recently my own phone number has been added to the list of numbers that have been blocked
  • Works 5/5

    By apiolxi
    It works most of the time. B
  • Barely works 1/5

    By Todditron
    Will block the occasional robocall, say 25%, and reporting spam calls on the other 75% is like a 4-6 step process. It’s crazy that they can’t do better than this, and still charge you just the same. I hate robocalls so much that I keep paying for it
  • Won’t stop crashing 1/5

    By iwbfodnw
    I can’t even get the app open without it freezing.
  • Normally works good but has been broken for a week 1/5

    By wingman664
    Normally works good but has been broken for a week
  • Update killed app 1/5

    By All tied up
    App won’t load on a brand new iPhone 12. How does Verizon expect to block spam when they can’t even make an app work? Oh that’s right, they really don’t care as long as the spammers are paying their phone bill. What a joke!
  • Does not honor your contact list 1/5

    By scottmccall
    This app does a mediocre job at blocking spam calls, Robo killer was much better. Meanwhile they call filter app will not respect your contact list and may inadvertently block your contacts from calling you. My work has been filtered out multiple times even though it is on the allowed list. The app makes a statement that they blocked a contact, well geez maybe they should recognize that if they are in my contact list and not blocked separately, they should be allowed through! Thanks for charging me to block my own contact list from calling me!
  • Locks up 1/5

    By JoeNobodyX
    Recently, the app has started locking up. It will work for a little while after uninstalling and reinstalling, but will then freeze up and no longer launch properly. Obviously not protecting against fraudulent scam calls anymore either as a result. iPhone 12 running iOS 14.7.1
  • Useless now. 1/5

    By pitdoug1998
    Face it. The thieves and swindlers have outsmarted Verizon. Sometimes I get a 10-20 calls a day, no name, just American based #s, usually local. When you call back you get a non working number or a hang up. When I filter calls that show 'unidentifiable caller', or whatever, I miss calls from new clients that I haven't made a contact out of yet. Frankly, we're done with Verizon. They're are so many USA companies that provide the same service for MUCH less, and they're more responsive to their CUSTOMERS. I LOATHE AT&T, but after we switched to Verizon the unwanted calls started IMMEDIATELY! They sold us out, period. And my word, the price has gone through the roof too. So to summarize. Over THREE THOUSAND, unwanted calls annually. And a USELESS app that doesn't deal with them. They're crazy expensive. They sell our information. And now it's been revealed they take some of our hard earned money and give it to the monsters at Planned Barrenhood. Which seems crazy from a business standpoint, leave the brutality aside. You can literally put a number, then a dollar amount, on the killing of future customers!
