  • Good App That Needs Work

    By euphoricwho
    Nice app. Interface is clean. However, I notice that refreshing the call log (done by dragging the list down and releasing) could be improved. I notice that it takes a long swipe down to refresh the list. I’ve done this similar gesture on other apps, and they do it much better compared to on the Call Block app from my personal experience. Another thing I notice is missing is notification badges from the lock screen. Even when it’s enabled from the notification settings, it will not show up. Would be nice to have the option for that, and for those who don’t like it, they can simply disable it. Another thing I notice is every time I report the number and I already blocked it, the app still asks me if I want to block it. If I already blocked the number, it would be better if the app told me I blocked it already. Finally, I would like to see an option for SMS reporting in the future. It seems to be a built in iOS feature, but I have no idea what apps support it. It seems perfect sense for this app to incorporate it in the future. Edit: when the user changes back to the basic plan, AT&T doesn’t even let you finish your month off! They cancel your plan immediately. Wish they would give you an option to let you keep the premium plan until the end of the payment cycle.
  • I would give it five stars but...

    By KELLYMDFLA
    The app works great! Within days of putting it on my phone the insane amount of telemarketers, political calls, scammers, and unknown numbers have been blocked or at least flagged so I know not to answer them. I immediately manually block them. The message they get when they call my phone number is great and it really has cut down on my calls. Here’s what really makes me angry and here’s why the app received two stars from me. I have never had any other cellular service. I have the same phone number I started with waaaay back in the early days of wireless. Back in the Cellular One/MCI Wireless, the first AT&T, the buyout by Cingular, and the switch back to AT&T wireless and this is the thanks I get for being a loyal customer with seven lines of wireless service (with data) and DirectTV. They actually want me to pay $3.99 for Call Protect Plus? If they're not willing to give the Call Protect Plus at no charge to everyone, they should at least provide the service to those of us who have been faithful customers and/or give them a tremendous amount of business. There’s no excuse for charging customers for this service! They already get a ridiculous amount of money from me. I don’t think I should have to fork out more to them for Call Protect Plus.
  • READ YOUR CONTRACT

    By AllMostDone
    Big warning! Please make sure that you read the contract you are signing before you hit the agree button. Not only are you playing ATT a full term price before you get any service but ATT (one if not the biggest company in the phone business) could not even do this without bring in some unknown 3rd company. Let’s see if they can’t make it work or they “accidentally” sell all of your personal info you can’t sue in a class action lawsuit! They are glad to tell you that they are collecting even more data but doesn’t ATT already have you account info? Shouldn’t that be enough? Wait shouldn’t the need to collect data info be redundant? Oops, look some there’s another company involved maybe this company is collecting “your personal data” and selling it to the highest bidder so someone completely new can try and sell you that new trip to the Caribbean. NO THANKS! How about making it harder to spoof a fake phone number? How about allowing the end customer seeing the person who is actually paying for making that call (you need a court order and multi state corporation to get that!) But if you have a friend in the local police department he/she can have your physical location sent to him while you are driving down the highway.

    Despite signing up for the national “do not call” registry, scammers & spammers & fraudsters would still be able to call me — that is until I downloaded the AT&T Call Protect App! Within 3 day’s of downloading this app, all of the spam, non-profit solicitations, and fraudulent callers were flagged and blocked for my review. I have the ability to report any unwanted callers & phone numbers, as well as blocking them. What really makes this app a awesome is that it tracks reports from users who report a specific number and builds a database of reported/unwanted phone numbers to then protect other users of this app! You retain complete control over who you call, who you block. Now, when my phone rings, it’s only a known contact. I’ve had this app for over a month, and it has blocked over 100 calls from suspicious/fraudulent numbers. Give this app a try - you’ve got nothing to lose and there’s no cost! I could not be happier with this app, I wish I had downloaded it sooner! Nice Job AT&T!
  • Great feature, broken Plus support

    By glebec
    The app itself is a godsend. Being able to see and block spammers, telemarketers etc. integrated into both the phone display and at the network level itself is great. However, the app is broken in one very significant and unacceptable way. Some of the features (e.g. auto-blocking telemarketers, as opposed to just spammers) are hidden behind a $3.99/mo. “Plus” subscription. We could argue over whether the extra charge is warranted, but that’s not what this review is about. No, the issue is that the subscription option DOES NOT WORK. I have paid for it, it appears in my iTunes billing, etc. but the relevant screens in the app still say “upgrade to Plus!” I was able to access the extra features once, when I first unlocked Plus, but in every subsequent app access they are hidden again as if I never upgraded. When I click “upgrade” from within the app, it says “you are already subscribed” but the relevant menu systems do not appear – it keeps advertising a service I already paid for. This is an incredibly bad error to have. The app essentially has taken my money and given nothing in return. Fix this, AT&T.

    This app is awesome thank you AT&T for creating this app for your customers. Ever since the hurricane I’ve been getting a lot of unwanted calls from everywhere. Like Canada, Philadelphia, Texas these are among the few places that I’ve gotten calls from, trying to sell or said I won something. Grrrr these teller marketers just get on my nerves they would not shut up when they call so you can’t tell them it’s the wrong person or you are not interested in what they are selling. I just hang up on them. I had 90 block calls on my phone in less than a month. Phew, now I don’t have to worry about the midnight calls or early Sunday morning calls. This app does it all for me, it like having your own bodyguards..... tried of these disrespectful people calling you all hours of the night get this app for your phone. It truly gives you a peace of mind that when your phone rings it is for you and someone that you really would like to speak to. Great app AT&T 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼😜
  • You’ll need to turn off notifications and be patient

    By Derek49
    First, notifications: if you have that turned on you get s whole series for one phone call. Basically once every second. Might be related to how the app identifies fraudulent calls. Not sure. But supper annoying when they keep popping on the screen. Second, patience: seems like we, the users, have to train the app. Of course people perpetrating these robo calls have thousands of phone numbers so you’ll spend an eternity writing them up. Almost as annoying as the calls themselves. Not sure if the app has ever identified a fake call before I’ve logged it as such. With new trick of attaching a fake name to calls things might become harder as they are read as “identified call”. So, my patience is wearing thin. Is AT&T (and other telecoms) putting this on the subscribers rather than trying to figure out how to simply stop this crap from ever reaching us? Yes, is my guess. Kinda like the “convenience” of bagging your own groceries (a labor savings for stores in reality) 😂
  • Insulting!

    By Bill2go
    AT&T, I find it insulting that you even have the nerve to charge your loyal customers additional money for this app/service. $3.99/month for the full-featured version of this app is ridiculous, especially when this is a service that should already be included in your extraordinarily overpriced rate plans. I’ve been a loyal AT&T cellular customer for many, many years. What do I get for my loyalty to your company? Nothing but, overpriced cellular plans, poor customer service and extremely poor cellular coverage. You already nickel & dime your customers to death with all the add-on administrative fees, service charges and never-before heard of taxes, and now you want to charge additional for this service too? Your company has no shame. I’d be embarrassed to work for AT&T, almost as embarrassed as I am to be a customer. I’d recommend you improve on your pricing, poor cellular coverage, and poor customer service before you folks invent more ways to charge your loyal customers, like you’re doing with this app/service. You can be sure that I’ll be as vocal as I can, online and in person, to recommend to anyone who’s considering your services that they should avoid your company at all costs.
  • Initial impression of Fraud Protect

    5
    By FP Flag
    With in a limited time span of using Fraud Protect the app was very slow to react to fraud initiated calls. As the app gains input from (?) sources notification to the user is getting a little better. However, the newest “fraud” calls are centered on the caller listed as “DEBT COLLECTOR” - leading the ATT customer to believe the call is credible because “Fraud Protect” did not FLAG it as a fraudulent call. These appear to be a new form of fraudulent calls focused on a “new scam” and “Fraud Protect” programmers or data input/intercept monitoring system is once again falling behind in the curve to protect ATT customers - especially the elderly that don’t have access to what’s new in the current cell phone scam MO. Actual debt collectors send a notice via the US Mail system not over the cell phone radio waves. ATT Fraud Protect monitoring system personnel should be “a lot” quicker in spotting new scams being launched over their systems before customers begin filing formal complaints and “all credibility is lost”.

    So far this app hasn’t worked as I hoped. First of all, I couldn’t find an operating manual or explanation anywhere. So, use is based on best guess. Telemarketers still ring through, you just get a warning that it is a telemarketer. The app has completely missed one telemarketer phone number or they are figuring out how to get around it. Since starting to use this app my fraud calls have tripled. They don't ring through, but my phone looks like a strobe light because they just keep calling every few seconds. I want a way so anyone not in my contacts list can’t call me or anyone not in my contacts list would automatically be sent to voice mail except fraud call should be blocked in this case. These two setting could just be under settings in the app for those who want them. Also, you are going to have to answer the telemarketer call and find out who they are so you can fill out the information section. This defeats the whole purpose of the app. I answered one of these calls by accident and I now get 20 or 30 calls a day.
