Seeking some current input/thinking on ‘CALL BLOCKING’ apps/services’.
On my home number I’ve used Nomorobo (free) for about 1 year and it seems to really be doing the job! Calls rings 1-2 times, displays caller ID, then the call gets disconnected. On my iPhone 7 (IOS 10.3.3) I have tried a number of apps but still daily receive many random calls .. a few are marked SUSPECTED SPAM, most aren’t.
Are any of these Call Blocking tools useful? Or are they just selling my phone number to other telemarketers? I have tried HIYA, Call Protect (AT&T – my provider), CallerSmart, and Trucaller. If multiple apps are on my iPhone, does that in any way limit the effectiveness of blocking calls? I also have installed the app for Nomorobo, but they want $19.99/year on my mobile (which I would gladly pay IF it worked as well as it does at home). I used to go to 800notes.com to look up callers, but these days many of the calls I am receiving (which is quite close to my own mobile #)
