Doesn’t work 1/5
It doesn’t provide any information about any calls, and it won’t block any spam calls.
Blocks all calls and will be too expensive 1/5
After I installed it I have had only a couple of calls which doesn’t even show in the app. Then found out other numbers aren’t getting through.
A day after I purchase the pay version I’m told it’s going up in price. Disclose that while we are purchasing. Cancelling pay plan and deleting app
This app doesn’t block any calls, it just let’s you know it’s a spam call. My phone does that anyway without the app. Don’t waste your time trying to set it up. I deleted after the first day.
As of 9/28/22 it will be $3.99 a month - you can block spam on your apple phone already! 1/5
I’m a long time customer, but the app I’ve found doesn’t DO anything more than an Apple phone itself does (apple’s is free, and works better). When it started it did identify spam, but now, the spammers have gotten more savvy and Verizon has NOT kept up. A handful of times in two years using the premium app (paying $2.99/mo) I got an actual spam call notice from the app, out of the hundreds I’ve ever gotten - but the app *never identified*! What the app ends up doing is working like crowd sourcing - we as payers or users end up are the ones telling Verizon who is a spam caller! I gave it time hoping after a while it would build up and I’d start seeing more proactive spam potential alerts. But no. I am the one who seems to tell Verizon. I block them, and I still see the caller unless I also block it on Apple. So why mess with both? Why should I pay to give Verizon this info - in my money or time? If you have an apple phone, apple lets you block numbers easily without need of the special app and apple never lets you see the call you block directly on your iPhone - so what’s the point of a Verizon app that doesn’t identify 95% of incoming spam? Verizon app also still lets numbers thru you identify, unless you also block them ON APPLE. The app itself doesn’t block anything. They don’t disclose - and they SHOULD - the premium price is going up from $2.99 to $3.99 a month (and they aren’t disclosing the priceI in the App Store and are supposed to - misleading VW!) I just deleted the app after paying to use for over 2 years.

I just realized I will be paying $3.99 per month for this app. I can’t afford additional charges. How do I get rid of this app and charges?
Call Filter works 4/5
Have been using Call filter for several years. It works good, blocks spam calls, alerts me of th incoming calls risk level, let’s me select block caller. It does the job. Not sure if other apps have a different or better algorithm and database but, at $48/ year I may shop around.
Blocked work calls and didn’t block spam or robocalls 2/5
If you use the free version of this, then you have to hope that your workplace, doctors office, etc., doesn’t use an electronic switchboard because if it does, this program will block it. What it won’t block, however, are spam texts spam calls people trying to sell you extended car insurance warranty crap for a nonexistent car, stuff like that this program lets go through and you get to deal with all those while wondering why you can’t get a hold of your workplace. Deleted
Not that great 2/5
Verizon just upped the fee to 3.99 a month and it’s honestly not worth it. There are other apps that actually flag and block scam/spam calls.
It could be better!! 2/5
Not having the same issue as others but my main concern is why is a blocked caller still allowed to text?!? With T-Mobile when you blocked a number it also blocked them from texting you. I have to literally go into my account settings online to block a person from calls and texts & even that is only for 90 days!!!! It’s too much that I feel like I should have to change my number when it could all be so simple. Hopefully an update in the future allows us to have this simplicity otherwise I’ll have to change my number smh.
Annoying notifications 1/5
App seems to work well, but I’m rating 1 star for the simple reason that it won’t just work in the background constantly with no interaction from the user. This app constantly sends a push notification saying “We haven’t seen you in a while. Tap here to keep your device up to date”.
This should NOT be a thing. I’ll be removing this app and installing a better, less annoying one.
No longer works with last update 1/5
Since the last update about 2 weeks ago, I am receiving all my spam calls. The app is not even registering that I’m receiving the calls. Please fix the glitch or I’ll be removing my whole family from our premium subscriptions.
Junk app 1/5
By masked unreveled28
Doesn’t at all, have to uninstall and then reinstall, loss all spam callers. What a bone, says it’s fee then change to for it pay over a hundred dollars for line line that is paid off?
Works, But Vwz shots themselves Again 2/5
Why do these big companies always mess up a good offering, it says Free on app search description but this apparently is an attempt to deceive, according to others here I will eventually start getting a bill without it being clear that this was only a trial, at no time during my being presented with this product by Vwz digital marketing or while finding and installing the app was it made clear This is a Trial Offer Only, I hope some attorneys see this and get some easy money out of Vwz with a class action, the sad this is I was liking it and would have paid the 2.99 gladly, but Now that I have been the target of a misrepresentation , I can’t do it. Shame of the clever little buggers at Vwz who are full time deceivers, thinking they are being clever marketers when in truth they are bugger pooh
Blocks about 50% 1/5
It’s a paid feature to not be harassed all day. Phone companies actually have the resources to do this in their end, but what’s profitable about that right? So they charge you $3 a month so you don’t get calls all day long about warranty.
But every time they block something, they they still provide either a push message, or notification that you cannot turn off telling you they blocked spam.
So you pay to get spammed by the app that tells you every instance of spam trying to go through.
It’s terrible, hardly works, paid feature, that spams you as much as spam callers.
Doesn’t work 1/5
I have been trying to log into the app all day. I downloaded it because Verizon online directed me here due to constant calls from spammers trying to get my CC information to pay my bill before my plan is terminated. I am on autopay, up to date with my bill, therefore I know the call is a scammer. Plus- if I owed money, they would not use a robo call, telling me I owe money and to get my CC ready and wait for the next representative. If I were dodging my bills, I wouldn’t wait on the phone lol. Every time I try getting into this app, it says my device can’t be authenticated and to try back later. Has gone on for hours now. Total waste and now no way to report the spammer before they actually fool someone into giving them their credit card information.
App gets lonely 1/5
Thos app gets lonely and starts begging for attention, even when there’s no reason to open it.
This app is terrible. I could receive calls from possible spam and would even tell me it was possible spam (and it was spam) , but it would block Uber driver calls, DoorDash calls , my Credit Union , and my employer.
Free version not effective 1/5
Started getting a rash of calls every 5 min. Thought I would try this out. App did not catch any of the robo-calls. I wouldn’t waste my time on it.
Blocks virtually nothing. 1/5
For a paid service, I get an absurd number of spam calls on a daily basis. Call filter hardly blocks anything.
Reporting still broken 1/5
By High on lifeeee
Please fix the reporting from phone log. It doesn’t work anymore.
Hit “share contact” > verizon call filter, this bring me to a screen that doesn’t allow me to report.
Doesn’t really work 2/5
By sylveon trainer
Ever since I downloaded this app I’ve gotten 7 spam calls and it’s only blocked one of them.
Blocks your annoying contacts 5/5
Wanted to add my 2 cents here. I relocated and had an ex that I was still amicable with calling me incessantly after I left. I was ok with texting here and there but the calls were too much. Which is why I didn’t want to block them altogether. I checked out call filter since I have Verizon anyway and it allowed me to block them from calling - sends them straight to VM, but we can still text. And when they ask why I don’t ever answer my phone I just tell them it’s always on DND 😂. Hopefully this helps someone in a similar situation
Worked for like a day 2/5
Installed it worked for like a day and hasn’t worked since then. It no longer blocks or alerts to spam calls or even sees the calls coming in.
Call filter plus 1/5
Everything was working fine on call filter plus until last week (July 14?, 2022) when Verizon did a software upgrade on the call filter plus. Now I’m getting 15-20 unwanted call per day. How/why?????! This software upgrade did something way wrong! Please re-look this upgrade. I’m going crazy! Saundra Reed
It’s ok… wish it was Google Voice 3/5
This app has potential to be good but needs a lot more help. Spam calls have gotten out of control and it would be so easy to stop the spoofing if all carriers offered an “announce your call” type option that Google Voice does that requires a person to say their name before connecting a call.
What A Joke 1/5
I get dozens of spam calls a day. This app stops one. The rest are silenced by filters on iOS.
But I shouldn’t have to filter anything. The carriers should know if a number is legit. They don’t because they refuse to invest the money to overhaul the network to make it work like it does in Europe. So, this whole spam call epidemic is the fault of the US carriers, yet it comes down on the user to pay an EXTRA fee to Verizon to fix it.
Don’t bother. 1/5
Keep getting “checking account status” and can’t use. Deleting
Don’t download this. Certainly don’t pay for it! Doesn’t work at all.
Yup, useless 1/5
Just got a “online pharmacy” scam call. Call Filter says “this number hasn’t contacted you?!?!” Absolutely pointless application…
Too need 3/5
By Soundman 2
This app is good but need, if you haven’t seen me in awhile it’s because you are doing a good job!
App won’t authenticate so I can’t use it 1/5
I reached out to Verizon support about this but they just said try again later. Can not login because it needs to authenticate your number but after 2 minutes fails and says try again later. It’s been over 4 months now.
Awesome Filter 5/5
I’m getting upwards of 20+ robo calls everyday. Call Filter is silencing them (letting me know what as attempting to come through) but I don’t have to deal with the calls. Thanks Call Filter—awesome app!!!!
Completely Useless 1/5
Downgrading rating to 1-star. Completely useless app. I never blocks calls anymore and when I look one up that literally just called me, the stupid app says the number hasn’t contacted me recently.
It will occasionally block a spam call, but 9/10 I’ll look up a number that literally just call me and the app says “this number hasn’t contacted you recently”. Lol, it contacted me 60 seconds ago. How recent is recent?? Anyway, the only reason I use it is because I get it for free. I would absolutely NEVER actually pay extra for this.
You're blocking MY MOTHER 2/5
By Mrs. Federale
I keep labeling my mother as NOT SPAM, but this app continues to block her number. If I have a phone number stored in my phone book, shouldn't you realize its NOT spam?! The calls you should be blocking aren't being blocked but my mama is. Geeze! Get it together!
They really need to fix this app 1/5
You nees to fix this have. Its so hard to do anything on it. Nothing is really explained or easy to find what options you are looking to change. They took a lot of things out. To try and make it not as hard to use however i think they all but made it worse. Also more confusing. I really think need
Make it more simple. By putting all the settings & options under one tab. Also to pit a little ? Next to them and give a brief but detailed description of each. Its crazy to have everything all over the place. An app is like a website it needs ro ne easy to use & flow.
GREAT APP 5/5
I haven’t read other reviews but I can say for me personally, holy cow. I was losing my mind getting so many spam calls a day. I’ve had this for maybe 2-3 weeks I think, and I don’t think a single spam call has made it through. I am so happy with this. I mean it had gotten to the point where legit 80% of my incoming calls were spam. Very happy. Highly recommend. I am using the free version of the app.
Like lots of other recent reviews. This app is worthless. It rarely blocks calls, though it’ll show me one or two a week it blocked, and cannot identify when a recent call was made when I go in to report spam.
Doesn’t even work 1/5
By CA DogMom
I am bombarded DAILY, starting at 8am with spam calls. I thought this app was supposed to filter these calls? I’m paying for something that is completely useless. Step up and fix this app.
So so 1/5
In order to block what Verizon should be blocking from the start is a paid subscription which proves theu can block spam—but are greedy for payment
Doesn’t work 1/5
By Roi Des Rois
Gave it all permissions but it doesn’t work. Got a spam call and the app doesn’t even see it. How they don’t see what’s coming thru their network is unbelievable.
Seems all they want is to access your contacts.
Doesn’t work! 1/5
I’ve tried multiple times to report spam calls and voicemails but app won’t allow me to report. This app is totally useless.
Too many apps, too few that work 2/5
All you need to do is look at the reviews by most recent, and you’ll see I’m not alone in my confusion about this app. Verizon has so many applications that seemingly overlap, it’s difficult to figure out which one to use. This particular one doesn’t seem to do much of anything at all. Whatever is working seems to be taken care of by Apple’s call options. Disappointing, I had hoped for better.
No caller ID/ useless app 1/5
By frozen weather
I purchased this app in an attempt to stop the spam calls such as no caller Id and unknown caller. It stopped neither. I even contacted Verizon to get their assistance. The voice on the other end was ole so useless.
Never worked 1/5
I downloaded it and set it up. Gave it all the permissions it needed but it never did anything when I received phone calls.
To expensive 1/5
Now that you increased your fees and taxes, bring back Verizon Up Rewards for staying with yet another predatory monopoly.. I want the one bonus gig data.. greedy just like every other Corp.. It’s not about customers, it’s about shareholders and Outrageous salaries and benefits for Top management though all you do is manage how much is in your pockets
Horrible app, does not block ‘No Caller ID’ or ‘unknown caller’ nor does it do anything to Caller ID Spoofing. The app has gone backwards and no longer even allows blocking of International calls.
Doesn’t work 1/5
This app is worthless, even the paid service. T mobiles scam blocker is MUCH better and so is their service. Don’t waste your time.
Requires personal info 1/5
“Requires” access to my contacts in order to work. Hahaha no. Deleted.
Clumsy interface 1/5
By unhappy 9999 customer
WAY too many clicks to add a spam call. They should make it easy to copy & paste a number. It blocks some but not unless u have highest setting. Use HiYa or another app for free
