    I've been reading the reviews, do I update to include security on my iPhone? Right now this app alone is doing an awesome job, after reading the negative reviews I'm questioning whether to let it go or not, don't want to lose WiFi or use data unnecessarily. VPN's don't have a good history not just yours but everyone I read about. Can you contact me thru email or however it's easier to let me know your opinion? Much appreciation in advance.

    Charges 4$ a month to block most types of spam or telemarketing call. Should be a free service. Shame on you at&t!!!!
  • Great effort but needs FirstNet access.

    Title says it all. I love the effort to block unwanted calls and to allow users to manage calls to their number. As other users have said, I think more automation and AI are needed to stop spam/bot calling, which feels like such a major intrusion or violation of my personal time and life. This service needs to be connected to FirstNet as soon as possible!!! Five stars for effort once FirstNet connection has been established.
  • Garbage offering from AT&T

    Another garbage app from att. This app is just like all the other bundled bloatware AT&T installs on android phones,.... useless, ineffective, inept, space wasting. There are other apps on the market that do the job WAY better. After installing, I can’t say I saw any reduction in the number of spam calls.
  • No difference

    I have been getting multiple unsolicited calls a day from foreign and U.S. numbers. I installed the app 2 weeks ago and to date it has blocked zero calls while I have received dozens of unsolicited calls. I am deleting the app

    Known fraud calls and manually blocked calls do get blocked at the network level. The problem is these scammers and telemarketers are spoofing caller ID and using legitimate numbers. This app and the service itself needs to allow users to set up a whitelist of callers like their Uverse phone service. Even Call Protect Plus doesn’t have that feature. The Plus Custom Call Control only adds the option to block private, telemarketers, surveys, political, nonprofit, and Spam risk calls. There’s nothing custom about it allowing you to set up your own blocking rules. AT&T needs to verify callers at the network level to truly beat telemarketers but there’s a monetary incentive to let their users get harassed.
