Thank you AT&T for ruining this app and opening my eyes to your competitor. Due to problems with Call Protect as described below, I switched to T-Mo after 20 years with AT&T. What a breath of fresh air in all respects. 3/5/2021: Updated review re: version 2.8.6: Still broken yet again. After four updates this app is totally useless. “We Hit a Snag” 2/27/2021: Updated review re: version 2.8.5: Still broken! After three updates this app is totally useless. “We Hit a Snag” 2/15/2021: Original review: App was working fine before the late January update 2.8.2, now I cannot access it. Broken. Many calls to AT&T have not resolved the problem. A newer update, 2.8.4 in February, did nothing to fix it. Just a blank screen with an eventual “We Hit a Snag” message.
You get the “Plus” version for free if you subscribe to an Unlimited AT&T Wireless Plan.
I have been with call protect AT&T for 3 months , this apps need to improvement as well. It doesn’t work what i expected for callers kept through phone unknown, spam and etc .. still does , text strangers texted me how that happen know information my text phone , and emails too . Need protect calls service . Includes mobile security AT&T same thing . Awful . Please in the future anything update as better .
Every time you open the app you have to pick the free version or the monthly fee version. It seems they figure you will fat finger the response and accidentally subscribe. Why are the basic features not included in the basic plan?
1. Doesn’t recognize most #s. 2. Crashes repeatedly. No. Repeatedly. Nearly every time. Too large a company to have such a poor app.
The block calls called a scam fraud calls call back what is your service doing and I’m not paying you no more money this is ridiculous I’m trying to run a business owner operator
I waited months to leave this review thinking that for sure it would be fixed by now but no, this app still constantly freezes and is basically unusable.
The app hasn’t even loaded once.
Does not work on iPhones, at least it doesn’t on mine. The directions in that section are not applicable. Holding on the text message does not provide an option to forward the message to AT&T. It’s a shame
