Trash Software 1/5
Worthless as can be, stops nothing and does not work with iPhone
Does not work 1/5
App keeps saying protection pending and can take up to an hour to complete. I check back every couple hours. Been days trying to activate since Verizon support told me to download this app. No calls being filtered😡
Blocked calls go yo voicemail? BAD idea. Do not want them to access any part of my account!
No filter with Call Filter 1/5
Even with call filter activated with the highest level settings to block all non contact list callers I am still getting at minimum 5 robocalls a day! Completely worthless.
Receiving an embarrassing amount of calls now! 1/5
I just downloaded this app and I typically get 1-3 MAX calls a day from spam or telemarketers. The moment I loaded this I have received one call every 2 hours from different numbers but with the same BS spam message alternating from 888 to 800 and not only has this not shown spam or anything at all besides the normal number. They are coming through in excess now!
This app made my problem worst... guess I should have never expected Verizon to actually give something for “free”. Free is never free these days. They’ll always find a way to make us pay more
The only one thing it should do, block calls, it does not. 1/5
So disappointed about this app. The only thing I expected it to do, which is block calls, it does not. I do a better job myself, manually blocking this annoying numbers.
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 Your recent 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 in 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.
In addition, you can’t block #’s with the app. Verizon requires you to pay a mi they 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 desire to help fix the issue of spam calls since you’re using them to make money. How long before you start helping spammers so the problem because some bad all your customers are forced to sign up for your blocking service?
Doesn’t work 1/5
Don’t waste your money on this app, doesn’t work. It maybe stops one call a day and you still get all other spam calls.
Couldn’t block a six digit number 1/5
Several hours after installing this app I get the same “your social security number is cancelled” robo call I’ve been getting the last week and it couldn’t even recognize a number like (800) 138-721. This app is vaporware!
Bad call filter 1/5
Verizon call filter is really bad. Blocks hardly anything. Thats why its got 1.8 stars. Waste of money.
Update the app! 5/5
By ibotta is better
So far so good! Just updated bc I’ve been getting so many calls the past few days and it’s working better than ever. Shows you who it blocked now also.
Contact list names not displayed? 3/5
After last update of this app on July 6th, I stopped seeing the name of callers in my contact list when they call. I just see the phone number not their name. This is very annoying especially when someone in my contacts calls but they don’t call me often enough that I recognize the number.
Not Impressed 1/5
Not impressed with this app. Seem to be getting more robocalls than before I downloaded this app. Wish there was something that would stop these calls.
Call filter plus? 5/5
I’m paying for call filter but not showing call filter plus what up? if I’m not going to receive it I’ll just unsubscribe
App limitation makes it unusable for dual sim phones 1/5
I use esim for my Verizon service (physical sim for travel). This app only picks up the phone number tied to the physical SIM card and since that is not Verizon managed I can’t use the feature. Will change if app becomes usable.
Better than others 5/5
Don’t let the critics of the app fool you thinking that they know more but they just haven’t really tried it out. This app does its job by automatically adding the number to the spam list depending on the risk you selected. Occasionally I get robot calls which can be annoying enough if I don’t download and follow the instructions to make it work well for me.
No eSim Support 1/5
Still no support if your using an eSim only iPhone XS.
By Lego people
Doesn’t seem to do much unless you pay
Just doesn’t work 1/5
I’ve had this app for about two weeks. I just received a robocall from a well known robo number. It does not appear to work at all. I have it on strict settings. Still doesn’t seem to work.
Incompetent Verizon 1/5
How hard is it for Verizon to auto-block ALL unknown callers? There’s absolutely no reason for anybody to EVER call me with a blocked caller ID so please stop enabling these people.
Doesn’t block. Only labels. 1/5
This app doesn’t block spam calls as advertised. It only labels them. As a VZW customer, I expected the app to work at the infrastructure level to block calls that it could identify as spam, but apparently Verizon has no control over their own network. It was bad enough that calls used to make it through to voicemail, but now the phone keeps ringing throughout the day, with calls identified as spam, as well as unidentifiable “neighbor scam” spoofed caller id calls.
Esim issues 1/5
Are you gonna ever fix this issue for your customers that use an esim? Such a waste...
It works! 5/5
By Jenni who jenni me
I only had this app for a day and I am very satisfied with this app! I have not had any spam or robo calls all day long. And I used to get them about every two hours. I highly recommend!
Complete Garbage 1/5
By Aunt Mae's Posse
Does not work, installed it and no less robo calls than before I had it. Don’t waste you time with this it itself is spam.
I received more spam calls after I installed this than I ever received before. I think it’s a scam so you will upgrade to the paid one.
Needs a lot of work 2/5
Can we please add a feature we’re blocking numbers on the stock iOS phone app automatically blocks it the call filter app?
Also when I search a number, if the app has been closed it just takes me to the main menu and instead of jumping the number I’m looking up, forcing me to go back to the phone app and hit share contact again. I have to do this repeatedly.
Doesn’t block any of the spam calls. I am not sure what this app is doing. It very proudly tells me when it does block a call. Has sent me a grand total of 4 blocks I believe. I get spam calls multiple times a day.
You get what you pay for 1/5
Recommend by the Version customer relations on line person. Wasted half an hour of my life only to have to down load it myself. No calls blocked but alerts me that it may be spam as I get numerous calls a day. Not much different then no app at all. Oh yes and I can upgrade. 🥺ugh. Why can’t something be done about all the nuisance calls.
The worst 1/5
Verizon was the first to say they are coming out with a way to let their customers know if a scam call is coming through. I downloaded the free app and it does nothing! AT&T customers are getting notified without downloading anything. Verizon, get your act together.
Crashes all the time 2/5
Sort of works but crashes frequently. Good idea, poor execution.
Premium paid option is ridiculous 1/5
I don’t understand why Verizon and some other companies are charging for premium options to block calls. Yes you get some features for free with no purchase necessary but having to pay for features regarding spam calls that is being routed through the Verizon network should be free. Only explanation I see for them charging a fee for extra features that are essential is that any phone/telecommunication company would never fix a problem that brings them money
Doesn’t block spam texts 1/5
As the title says, doesn’t block spam texts.
Verizon can do better 1/5
I installed this unpretentiously and in 10 days I have received one spam notice while I personally blocked 2-4 spam calls per day. And why should I block a number that just called and then go to the app to reblock it!? Verizon should be able to figure this out! They know everything else I do they should know this!
Please update to work with eSim 1/5
The app used to work great, but then I switched out from the physical sim to the eSim to make it easier to get a prepaid sim while traveling. Currently,I’m using VZW eSim as my only line on this XS Max. Since going eSim, this app doesn’t recognize that I’m even connected to the VZW network and doesn’t work at all. Come on VZW, this is child’s play. Where is your testing and certification process?
Increased spam after installing app 1/5
After installing the app, I started receiving more calls than before. Not happy at all!
Well I tried this and it stopped exactly 0/20 calls in 24 hrs. If the number is spoofed, how does it know? Will I pay $2.99 per month for it? No I will not.
Good experience for me. 4/5
This app took a few days but it did kick in and limit the spam calls I get. One thing I would ask the negative reviewers is to check their setting for which block level they’ve setup. The default setting does block known spammers but only notifies of potential spam calls that are not confirmed. The default setting can be changed to a higher level. I have this set for me and it auto blocks the calls suspected of spam as well. As soon as I removed the app I got these calls within a day again. Reinstall the app and they stop.
Mixed reviews 3/5
Have setting to block all spam calls. A call Comes up as potential spam (using Plus Version) so WHY is it still ringing through?? Shouldn’t it be auto blocked.
Plus side I do believe there has been a significant reduction in annoying calls
Doesn’t work 1/5
By Please fix65444
Doesn’t work at all and ironically it blocks its own Verizon Fios number. What a waste of an app.
2.4.1 update 1/5
The 2.4.1 update does not do what it says it was created to do?? When you do the update it is supposed to change the icon to “Call Filter Plus” if you pay for that version. It does not do that?? Don’t understand how an update can be created to do one thing and it doesn’t do it??
Furthermore, the app is Not really user-friendly and has no instructions to tell you how to use a different functions and preferences.
Not worth it unless it is revamped to work correctly.
Not worth installing 1/5
Why do calls get through when they are “Unknown “ and do not have a phone number associated with it???? They can’t be blocked on my iPhone because they don’t have a phone number. Extremely frustrating!
Only a few of the calls I received since installing the free version were identified as “Potential Scam”. However the phone still rings.
Doesn’t block spoofed calls at all which accounts for most of my calls.
By Steve's Wife for Life
At first, I had the free app. It was working great, but yesterday got a notification that my “free trial had expired,” I went to the App Store and saw that the version I had needed to be updated to the new free version, so I updated it. Just now, I got another notification that my free trial had expired again. Not sure what’s going on, but this app should be free like other carriers’ to protect their customers from endless robocalls. If the app continues to work like it did and this is just a glitch in the new version, please fix and I will change my review in the App Store. Thank you.
Garbage app 1/5
I was enrolled in a trial I didn’t sign up for because I had read that the reviews sucked and I had a blocker program that worked well.
Ever since being put in this “trial” again that I did not sign up for, my unwanted and spam calls actually increased despite uninstalling the app and removing traces of it in settings and correcting the settings on my phone.
This app did the exact opposite of what it’s supposed to do. And shame on Verizon for putting their customers in a free “trial” without their consent.
Agree with PINKmistDEMON 5/5
The app works like it is supposed to. And if you think about it, most free email accounts receive spam email but no one is complaining about their effectiveness. Also as a Verizon customer, I wouldn’t download an app for call blocking from a company I’m not subscribed to. I am billed through Verizon, not iTunes/Apple. No app is perfect and even in the apps I don’t like, I wouldn’t bash them for things that are in my control.
Verizon should provide the premium service for free 1/5
Come on Verizon; you have the ability to offer you customers a quality spam free phone experience, yet you decided it’s best to put that behind a paywall? We are already paying for our phone service with you, you’re grasping for pennies and losing dollars.
By do not want. can not rate
I DECLINE this offer and free trial. PLEASE DO NOT ADD. PLEASE DO NOT CHARGE ME.
Gets disabled with every update. 1/5
Does not seem to have a good list to filter. Also is disabled in the iPhone blocking options after each update. Updates are frequent enough that It is disabled most of the time.
Can’t see who’s auto blocked! 2/5
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.
Too MANY steps 1/5
I have to click 9 on the screen to block a number. I paid for this app every month!! The process to block someone should be way easier!! The app does identifies the spam, fraud, and robo callers off the bat. Fix the process and the stars will go up
