  • Great effort but needs FirstNet access.

    By OriginalGumshoe
    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

    By DarthRoosta
    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

    By 51@jdino
    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

  • Almost useless but not quite

    By TheGuyInTheMirror
    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.
  • Stop all fraud and block them plz

    Stop all fraud calls and block them plz
  • Not working

    By 77019Hou
    I had three robocall telemarketer calls today that this did not block.
  • What is this app supposed to do ?

    By bijouxtoo
    I still get spam calls and have to manually block them.
  • Skip it

    By jon truelove
    Setup was slick and promising. But the app wouldn’t let me add any numbers at all to block, let alone a range (which is arguably the most important feature of apps like this). So the app simply doesn’t do anything. Waste.
  • Horrible

    By ndbluguy
    I get 6-8 robo calls per day with this app. Doesn’t block anything.
  • Let to many calls throug

    By swordpoint
    Shofar has not stopped but one call Let’s to many others through.
  • 4 stars

    By derod52
    Not blocking done new telemarking calls that call 6 or. 7 times a day
  • What a joke!

    By sgjitv
    This app doesn’t even allow me to block the callers it’s kinda a joke
  • Hiya is feeling a little pushy today.

    By Sustenator
    I wrote this review because in my first days using the app, it prompted me to review it every time I wanted to use any of its functions (not just when I opened it). For that, you get three stars! Ease up, Hiya!
  • Still approx 10 robo calls/day

    By 2cats1girl
    I really don’t think this works at all. It hasn’t cut down on the number of robo calls/spammers a bit. I open the app and report numbers each time but there’s never any relief. Save the space on your phone and pay for an app that actually works.
  • OK

    By Tom_Tak
    Update: it worked great the first 3 or 4 months. Maybe one call every 3 weeks would get through. But since about September, slowly but surely, more and more calls are getting through. I’m now getting as many a 3/day sometimes, with at least one every week day. I don’t know what is happening. The only reason I don’t cancel outright is that I suspect I would get even more calls everyday. Whatever was working last spring when I first signed up is no longer working. I’ve been using this for about 3 months now and I’m happy with it. It took several weeks for it to “kick in” but has since been really good about screening and blocking calls. I guess I get 1 spam/fraud call every 2 weeks or so now, whereas before I was getting as many as 3 or 4 a day. It works pretty well in my experience.
  • Terrible login / auth process

    By edward forrester
    One star because its a loop to login when you click request pin then type in the pin it says invalid. Suggestion stop asking for the pin the app should be able yo verify the device. Fix your code att.
  • Still getting bad calls

    By Akadnr
    Not sure if this app is depending on user submits, but I am still getting many unwanted calls , including calls in Chinese
  • Useless app

    By Bump101
    My previous review said it does nothing but I’m updating because now it does something. It blocks important calls including numbers in my phone book. Will most likely delete the app.
  • Unlisted

    By Hollyscarlo
    Does not block unlisted numbers
  • What’s the point?

    By Bobhuma1982
    I guess I’m not sure I understand the point. It doesn’t block calls that are suspected spam or scams. It just lets you know the the caller is such. These days, a number you don’t recognize is usually ignored anyway, so how about you block the call all together?
  • Cool

    By The Raft Guide
    Works great! I turned off notifications and I love this app!!! Calls are on the rise, so the funnel for thieves is closing quickly! Thank God!!!
  • Still get a lot of calls

    By call blockerz
    I don’t know how much this helps. I still get a lot of calls.
  • Charging me to fix a problem you created

    By Hebrewthunder
    I don’t think so I’m not paying to fix a problem that it is your obligation to fix. Fix it or nobody will be on voice soon.
  • Call protect

    By deb32375
    Disappointed often does not load . Initially worked great
  • Like the idea and concept

    By J D@11
    I like the concept of what the app does. It seems like though that the same calls are coming in on many different numbers now. How long does it take for my report to get to other folks who are getting the same calls? Can we just push telemarketers off a cliff?
  • Worthless

    By Sgt Pete
    Downloaded and set up. Never blocked or flagged a single call when I am getting two a day, over a 2 month period. Most worthless app I have ever had!
  • No way to downgrade from Plus

    By Morac
    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).
  • Not blocking

    By Am88sono
    Got 15 scam calls today... it flagged one. When it starts blocking the crud I’ll give it a 5.
  • How can I stop the calls?

    By Sulogus
    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.
  • Doesn’t work

    By wtalaski
    I’ve had 3 calls back to back which should’ve been blocked
  • It kinda works

    By Arkanjil
    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.
  • Blah blah blah

    By RDInWV
    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 didn’t fix sign in

    By Steven Baxley
    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.
  • Don’t waste your time

    By DezNuts are crazy
    This does not work. One out of 15 calls was flagged. This is pointless. Don’t waste your time
  • Virtually worthless

    By o8fuscated
    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
  • Call Protect Plus a waste

    By Sir Sly
    I subscribed to the Plus option under the impression that it would block Unknown or Private numbers. NOPE! They still come through!!
  • FirstNet Support

    By JakeCP12
    Really need FirstNet support!!!
  • Please Block Flagged Spammers

    By aa319110
    Please Block Flagged Spammers
  • Worked well - - then just stopped

    By Disappointed CPA
    One used the app for well over a year. It worked great! Then, just today, it stopped working. Attempts to receive a new activation PIN via SMS fail (I never receive a PIN). All attempts at getting support end with frustration! Companies hiding behind their technology really aggravate me. C’mon! You guys are the premier telecom company in the world. Is anybody listening?
  • Extra charges

    By Laser158689
    The useful blocking is an extra monthly fee.
  • App still broken

    By HolmenV
    Can’t enter the pin and access the Verify button as keyboard won’t disappear.
  • Blocked numbers still get through

    By erttdguiursdghj
    Not sure what’s the point of blocking numbers if they still get through!!!
  • Free version does nothing

    By m_meegs
    Been using free version for 5 days, has not not blocked a single call. Perhaps $48/yr version is better but I’m not willing to pay for something AT&T should provide for free.
  • Not all that great

    By Ritcheytl
    Still getting spam calls. Thought this app was supposed to stop that. Currently looking for something better. Very disappointed for what it advertises it can do, and doesn’t follow through
  • This isn’t working

    By Cage a monkey
    I either don’t know how to use this app or it just doesn’t work. I get more robo calls than I did before downloading this app. Thanks AT&T🙄🙄.
  • Not even one blocked call

    By Macross2013
    After one week and 38 robo spam calls, the app did not block even one and warned me only twice. It’s a waste of time if one has to block calls manually. I’ve already done it using iPhone feature.
  • Essential
