ATT has Call Protect. It filters known and suspected spam and telemarketers
It's free on postpaid plan for iPhones and branded android

Call protect does not work for me.
I have a Spammer that calls me multiple times per day, and leaves no message. I don't pick up the call, because I have the number saved in my contacts as Mr. Spammer.
I added Mr. Spammer to Call Protect.
He called me back the next day anyway.
Call Protect did not block the call.
Im soooo frustrated that ATT can do nothing to stop calls to my phone, even if I block the number, even if I use Call Protect, Even if I am on the Do Not Call List, and Even after I have reported the number to the DoNot Call List
I use Hiya for Android
Works perfect for me. Usually your contact list is whitelisted and will never be blocked. So make sure the number isn't in your contacts.
The contact Mr. Spammer in my Contact List is BLOCKED
AND I added Mr. Spammers numbers to ATT Call Protect
if there is a whitelist somewhere, please advise how to access it and make sure Mr. Spammer is not on it.
thanks for the ideas
This Call Protect thing accomplishes very little. How can you offer Anonymous Call Rejection on Landlines, but not on Cellular? I get dozens of anonymous calls each day, and it's very frustrating. Call protect accomplishes NOTHING towards blocking these calls. I could get a new AT&T number at how ever much $$, but a simple fix on your end could probably rectify the situation.
Thanks, AT&T... for nothing.
I would try to delete the spammer number from regular contacts since that may override Call Protect action. Also I would double-check Call Protect to make the spammer number isn't just added but also set to blocked. If so, boom! Call Protect drops the hammer on the spammer with fast-busy tones. No ring, no voicemail, no nothing for the shyster.
The app used to work for me on my iPhone 6 but since I upgraded to the X, it stopped working. Mr. Number app seems to be working for me.
Recently, my home received a spammer harassment. That person uses anonymous call. This morning, my mom received the call and ask him don't call anymore. That guy kept calling even answer machine is on. Finally, I told him I record what he said and he is harassing my family. During the phone call he kept using "F" word. He has my address and home number, ATT, please teach me what should I do besides block the anonymous? Thanks.
How can we improve?
