    I’m canceling because this app doesn’t live up to its promise: I keep getting robocalls
  • Since Late 2017 Major Background Update Issues

    1
    By irelander
    Update 20 June 2018: Back down to one star after the latest iOS update apparently undid all the progress that had been made. I even uninstalled the app, restarted my phone and did a fresh install, but it didn’t help in the end. I have wanted this app to work, but it has been problematic for more than six months now. With all of the robocalls I’m getting now, I need something that works so I have no choice but to look elsewhere. I hope Nomorobo and/or Apple will eventually fix whatever is truly the issue. Update 29 May 2018: For the past week the previous issues seem to have been addressed. A cautious four for now. Update 23 May 2018: Something has changed such that I am no longer getting the error dialogue and I no longer have to continually delete and re-download the app. It still seems to be inconsistent on background updates, but it does update when I open the app which is a big improvement. Back up to 3 stars. Update 26 April 2018: I saw that there was a recent update and decided to try Nomorobo again, sadly, with the same results except there’s a new error dialogue. I’ve followed the directions including the troubleshooting directions, but it still randomly fails to update on my iPhone 7 Plus and reporting the issue to support results in the same ‘due to high demand our response time is significantly delayed‘ message. I want it to work, but it doesn’t due to the fact that it stops refreshing and the robocalls start slipping through. I hope it works better for others, however for my experience I reduced it to one star. Previous review: I’ve used Nomorobo for a year and it has been quite effective, but for the past couple of months the app has increasingly not been updating consistently in the background and has required a restart or deletion and reinstallation. When it’s working properly, it is great. I hope the issues get ironed out soon.
  • iPhone app needs more development

    I got Nomorobo at my boss’ recommendation for my home phone several years ago. I found it very effective so purchased the iPhone app. Unfortunately it does not work. One option is to send calls directly to voice mail but this function does not work. Nomorobo should put a disclaimer to IPhone if they are unable to get this function working. Having the app for about a month now it appears to identify few if any spam calls whatsoever. The only call it identified for me was a repeat spam caller that I reported to Nomorobo myself. Unfortunately the call still rings through because of the apps inability to forward to voice mail mentioned earlier. I therefore am blocking the calls directly through the iPhone’s Apple contacts app. I’ve continued to report all spam calls within the Nomorobo app to assist them to improve the service. Since many of the calls I receive are already identified by White Pages as spam I am unsure why the Nomorobo app is unable to screen them.
  • It just doesn’t work

    It’s nothing personal, but the Nomorobo technology has been thwarted by the junk callers and doesn’t work. The callers are using temporary phone numbers that are somewhat randomised and Nomorobo can’t block the calls (otherwise they would have to block legitimate calls as well). It’s not worth $20. As soon as I laid for my subscription, I got a call from a spam caller. It was at that point I realised I had just wasted $20.
  • 1 Week In, and...

    So, I’m one week into my free trial with Nomorobo; and frankly, I’m not all that impressed. Let’s be honest, in the last week Nomorobo has worked- managing to block 4 incoming phone calls. Unfortunately, in that same timeframe I have received a whopping 20 phone calls from robo-collers. During this time I logged into the app, in order to make sure that the block lists were updated. I also took the time to register fake phone calls (I have a real problem with this- if I’m telling your company which numbers to block, then I should be the one getting paid). Look, no one I know receives anywhere near as many robo calls as I do on daily basis. To put this in perspective, 20 phony incoming calls is a good week for me. So when I sought out a trial for this app, I had high expectations. But Nomorobo simply isn’t delivering on its promise. I’m going to give it another week, but based on this initial performance, it is unlikely that I will commit to a subscription- Nomorobo simply isn’t worth it right now.
  • No more neighbor spoofs!

    I would get so many neighbor spoof calls, usually 5 ore more a day. It was so annoying, I’d leave my phone in silent all day to avoid them. Then I’d miss my actual phone calls. I’m his app eliminated ALL of my sales calls, havent had a single one in 2 weeks. I can actually keep my phone on now get my actual calls.
  • How do I stop Roby all app?

    Started free trial June 5. By June 7 or 8 I realized it wasn’t much help. Robots change their numbers so often, no one can keep up. The icon stayed on my iPhone after canceling, wouldn’t delete. Now I’m angry with app and robocalls

    *EDIT JUN 5 2018 So it’s been about two weeks and I’ve only received about 4/5 robo-calls in total I’m pretty impressed. These days my phone seems to be rather quiet. It’s nice. I’m definitely considering going a week without to test the difference before making the decision to subscribe. Give this app a chance- it’s not perfect, but it’s worth trying and they’re an honest company. At the $2/$3 monthly cost- it’s really not bad at all. I haven’t gotten more than 5-6 robocalls (not blocked) since installing it a month ago. Which is impressive as I used to get roughly 2 or more, every other day! __________________________________ I really love that this app respects our privacy- it doesn’t send your data to a server, record information or sell any of your data to services. Kudos to the developers for their honesty. The concern I have with this app is its effectiveness- it seeks to prevent robo calls using the process of elimination- by slowly adding to a data base of bogus numbers. While this seems like a sensible solution- it’s kind of a hit and miss because most robo calls can switch numbers in an instant. I’ve had the app for about 8 hours now, and I just got two consecutive robo calls- the robo caller instantly switched numbers when I declined the first “neighbor spoof” number. The calls were within 30 second of each other. It’s an easy to use app and it has great promise but I’m not sure much can be done for the robocalling issue- unless technology advances and we figure out how to counter the algorithms utilized to make such devious and sneaky robo calls. It’s a shame robo calls even exist- it’s not like people even listen to them- what’s the point of trying to use them to scam people? Most people decline numbers they see as foreign- a petty way for a petty thief. Great promise as a future app- but still needs work. I will continue with the trial :)

    I still received calls at all hours. And texts. Sure, a few went straight to voicemail. But the phone still rang through with many calls. Sadly, the technology isn’t there yet.
  • Good experience

    I had a terrible time with robo calls before downloading this app. I was manually blocking offending numbers which was a pain and not that effective. Nomorobo catches a large percentage of the calls and even the ones that get through usually within a few minutes they've been logged to the known spammers list for the future. It's not perfect, but it's better than any solution I've had previously so I have to give them credit for that. Hope they continue to innovate the service to fight back against spammers.
