Car warranty 4/5
In the last week I’ve had 4 car warranty calls.when Verizon first started this service almost all of those calls were caught.
Works well 4/5
Works well could be better, I fill it needs a option to block anyone not in your contacts. Also should block probable spam as well. In short could be better.
Great App 5/5
Before this app, my phone averaged 5-6 robo calls per day. Sometimes many more. Extremely frustrating is an understatement. Now all those calls do not ring my phone. They are treated a a silent missed call. To say i love this app is an understatement!!!
DO NOT DOWNLOAD 1/5
It “worked” for 2 days telling me scam likely, with my phone still ringing. Then they want money for the app to work as advertised. I already pay money each month, this app shows version can block the spam calls but won’t... shame on you version. Forcing people to pay for this app is childish and inappropriate. DO NOT DOWNLOAD
Great feature... but could do more... 4/5
Very appreciative of this service, but disappointed the numbers identified as “Spam” are still allowed to ring thru. Also need more labels (such as Telemarking) !
Absolute. Garbage. 1/5
By El Guapo666
All this app successfully does is steal your data and try to sell you additional services from Verizon.
This shouldn’t even be allowed in Apple’s App Store!
Scott Vogt 5/5
I use Verizon block and love it. My scam calls are at a minimum compared before I had it. Highly recommend this feature
Blocked non spam calls 3/5
By electric eye twin
I liked the app, worked great! Then I noticed a physician’s number I needed to communicate with was coming up as a spam call. My phone would not ring. They would leave a voicemail and my phone would alert that I had a voicemail. That was the only way I knew the physician’s office had called. I put the physician’s number in my contacts and still had the same issue. I had to delete the app in order for the calls from his office to come through.
Should be automatic 1/5
Verizon should be intercepting these calls automatically before they even ring my phone.
This app is useless. I haven’t found that it actually blocks or filters any calls regardless of paying for their service or not. I cannot report numbers as spam calls unless I subscribe. In my opinion, this should be free to do since I’m helping make their product better. Waste of time and space on my phone. Don’t bother downloading this garbage.
Use to get 20 calls a day now I get maybe one every two weeks
Call filter 5/5
Call filter is the best app I have ever used I am so glad Verizon came up with this app it is absolutely wonderful and great app and Verizon does a great job at there products and services. It’s just so great keep up the good work Verizon
Blocks my important calls 1/5
Installed this yesterday ;set my block to highest spam level. The AP has my addresses. It blocked my home phone!!! Reset to medium level - still blocked my home phone. Don’t bother installing unless you want frustration and missing emergency calls.
Only works if you are paying 1/5
Worked great when I got it for free for a short time with my new plan. When I stopped paying for the service this app doesn’t do anything at all. Verizon then sent me a text saying I could get it for free and I downloaded it again. Still is useless unless you pay
Not the best but..... 3/5
They say it will help, and it has. However I still have no idea who is calling which one of the selling points was it would identify the caller with the premium charge service, it doesn’t. But it does stop the constant ringing. I am still adding a ton of spoofed callers to my blocked list hoping in the end it is not someone I actually know because of lack of caller ID.
Verizon can’t even call me! 1/5
This has some major problems. I had it on the lowest settings for blocking calls, but it blocked anyone that was not in my contact list. I turned the filter off, but it continued to block calls as it had before. I called Verizon for another issue and they set up a time to call me back. It wouldn’t even let them through! When I told the lady of the problem, she told me I had to delete the app. I get a lot of spam calls, so it did help, but there were a lot of calls that should not have been blocked. So it’s either block all or block nothing. Thanks, but no thanks, seems like you could do better than that Verizon.
Does the exact opposite of what it should 1/5
Ever since installing this I get more spam calls than ever. I get at least three a day now; it used to be one every couple of days.
Terrible & useless! 1/5
By jb dean
I’ve had this app for a few months now and it’s useless! This app is so beneath Verizon that I cannot believe they released it! It blocked my GAS COMPANY & I almost got my gas turned off. Yet phone numbers that have zero online presence but call me 2-3 times a week, NEVER get marked as “potential spam” or blocked. Add to this the fact that to truly utilize it (like adding blocked numbers yourself) costs $$, it’s a scam to just get your money. I can choose to block ANY phone number I get myself for FREE through my phone and I don’t have to answer an unknown phone number. WHY PAY?
DELETED after I turned off all settings.
My number is reported as potential spam 1/5
I recently called someone with my Verizon phone number and they indicated I was flagged as potential spam. I spoke with a helpful Verizon tech support and they told me that the app is likely listing my phone number incorrectly. This needs to be fixed. I use my phone for work.
Why does this cost money? 1/5
The phone companies caused the problem — allowing spoofing — and they now charge $3/mo to solve it. By my own count, 2/3 of the voice calls that I receive are bogus, either spoofed or robocalls.
The FTC’s no-call list is useless. This app is just extortion to force customers pay to avoid having their expensive mobile phone service become just a useless annoyance.
I downloaded this app, but now I’m having second thoughts about the ethics of activating the service and rewarding Verizon for causing this problem in the first place.
Eliminate the ability of callers to spoof country codes and phone number. Then maybe this app will be useful.
Verizon drop the ball with this one 1/5
By A owa user
You have to pay to add call to their list. The only reason they give you a free Version is that the government forced them to do so. This app will not even block their own spoofed phone numbers.
Doesn’t work in a dual SIM situation 1/5
I’ve got two Verizon SIMs. One is personal and the other is work. I pay for call filtering on my personal eSIM - work doesn’t pay for it on the regular SIM.
While Verizon’s main app works great with this, the call filter app doesn’t recognize that I even have a Verizon account. I think it’s confused by the dual SIMs.
Blocks calls I need, let’s Spam thru 1/5
This app literally does the exact opposite of what it’s supposed to. Every single Chinese robocall makes it to me (sometimes 6 per day), when a regular unknown number calls, like my health care provider or a service that I’ve actually given my information to, it blocks them as spam! This is a total joke.
Blocks legitimate numbers, let’s spam calls pass 1/5
Spam calls are a major problem in the US. Unfortunately the FTC is not doing anything about it and this Verizon filter app does not help. Spam calls are still getting through and legitimate numbers are being blocked. I was wondering why my hospital couldn’t reach me when I was on call. Took me a while to figure out it was the Verizon filter app which blocked it. Had to completely disable it to receive calls again. Useless.
So what? 1/5
By JP Sevedge
I recently down loaded the Verizon call filter. I can absolutely see no difference between now and the time it was downloaded. Yes it SOMETIMES gives a “potential spam” notice, but, of coarse we already know that. Instead of giving us a “warning” it should just delete the call the w/o bothering the user. Don’t bother downloading this app.
Thank you !!!!!!!!! 5/5
I absolutely love this app. I’ve had nothing but a great experience. It definitely blocks ALL spam callers. I’m sending a special shoutout to the developers of this app. Thank You!!!!!!!
Don’t waste you time 1/5
This Verizon app doesn’t do anything useful.
Spoofing Calls 1/5
Does not block spoofed numbers. Pretty useless for me, unfortunately.
Stopped working 2/5
Have had 4 spam callers within 2 hours this morning. Using free version.
Love it! 4/5
This app is great. It stops spam calls. Yes you will get calls that say potential spam but that is Bc it’s in your area code. It has stopped my phone from ringing for spam. It’s so nice.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Numerous calls make it though that should have been labeled spam. I’ve even set it to the most aggressive blocking setting.
It is ludicrous that Verizon expects us to pay for a service they should be providing free of charge and is relatively easy for them to implement. Furthermore, spam calls have gotten wven worse since installing this, as I didn’t pay for the upgrade. The telecom operators should be held criminally liable for this crap, as they know darn well they can stop it. Instead they prefer to profit off of the criminal activity of organizations inside and outside of the country.
Turned it on to filter medium & high level likely spam calls. Works great! I was getting way too many robo calls, I seem to get less now. And almost none that the app doesn’t block/send to voicemail. Only one that I wish it hadn’t was a tv provider trying to make an appointment haha
Not very effective 2/5
This app does very little to block spam calls. Most calls still come through. It doesn’t seem Comcast is really using stir/shaken tech. Hardly worth using.
Deleted this App 1/5
Don’t waste your time. Deleted app and went back to RoboKiller.
I have easily gotten TEN TIMES more spam calls per day than I did before installing this app.
Not smart about blocking calls 1/5
Blocks calls from alexa find my phone and my company identity check for log in. Seems to be no way to train this app. I disabled it as well as the spam it is blocking needed resourses.
Who are your developers? 1/5
Seriously? It takes a few minutes to show up? Is that because your devs don’t know how to properly ask for permissions? This doesn’t do a thing right now.
App Crashes 1/5
The app keeps crashing at the main loading screen. This started happening after I downloaded the update for the app. Poor execution in the app, at least get it to work before rolling out an update for it.
Won't configure (iOS 13.4 public beta) 1/5
App installs but never adds the required configuration switch to the Settings app and therefore can't be enabled. Deleted after several tries including a restart.
Verizon scam 1/5
Verizon advertises this as a free service but no matter what it requires a paid subscription. Total BS.
Can’t block spam calls spoofing local numbers so it does me no good.
Not too sure 1/5
By Not a smiley face
I never know what the blocked number is. If somebody important, a relative for example, were blocked, they might just give up and I wouldn’t know that they tried to call me. Also, it seems to me that Verizon, or any carrier, for that matter, could detect if a number wasn’t reachable on a return call. Sometimes I don’t answer a call that might be spam. Then, I’ll try calling back and get, “Welcome to Verizon wireless. Your call cannot be completed.” That kind of call could/SHOULD have been stopped before it got to me.
Doesn’t work 1/5
I had 3 calls today! None of them stopped, so whats the point of the app if it doesn’t detect the call being spam?
Keeps telling me I’m not a Verizon member 1/5
The app does not want to work. I keep getting an error message that I need to be a Verizon member - which I am.
You want me to pay for it?! 1/5
By Psorry Now
Verizon wants you to pay for a blocking service because you’re already not paying enough just for telephone service.
This service may notify of a potential spam call, sometime as the call comes in, most of the time after the fact.
I remember the time when phone companies charged customers for a non-published number.
Does not work 1/5
By Gianna iaria
This app does not block anything period! All it does is allow the call to come thru and label as potential spam and does not show the number. It also hides numbers that are in your call list so you do not know who is calling you. Takes some big ones to charge monthly for a really crappy app that is so far behind other call blockers which charge less.
Why pay when it doesn’t work 1/5
Installed on my phone and telemarketers still getting through. No notification that the call is spam either. I won’t pay to upgrade if the free version doesn’t work.
