Upgrading to Plus indicates that if you cancel the iTunes subscription it will revert back to Basic, but it doesn’t. Not even the AT&T support reps could do that without breaking the App registration process. As such on the positive side you can get Plus for free, but on the negative side there’s no way to get rid of it if you don’t like the features (like enhanced caller ID).
Got 15 scam calls today... it flagged one. When it starts blocking the crud I’ll give it a 5.
This worked for one day. Now I’m receiving calls again. I’m going to cancel all my dealings with at&t if you can’t stop these calls.
I’ve had 3 calls back to back which should’ve been blocked
But the kicker is that if you want more complete coverage, you have to pay an additional monthly fee- for protection, from security issues that are inherent in the very system that they literally invented.
The free version. Calls still come thru. After you answer or determine it spam, you have to manually add it to this as call block. That does no good because the spam callers change the number they are calling from called Spoofing, to a totally new number and continue to call. ATT is operating bait and switch, ie. Bait and we’ll charge you if you really want this to work. FCC should clamp down and force them to provide it and not charge extra for it.
Update was released today supposedly fixing the sign-in problems. However, I am still having the same sign-in problems as before. This app was great WHEN it worked.
This does not work. One out of 15 calls was flagged. This is pointless. Don’t waste your time
All the calls still come through and have to be manually blocked. A decent app should respond to known telemarketers and shut them down before they ever ring. And AT&T does nothing for the bulk of the calls using spoofed #s
I subscribed to the Plus option under the impression that it would block Unknown or Private numbers. NOPE! They still come through!!
