AT&T is now charging for spam blocking that it used to include for free?

I recently upgraded my phone and now AT&T wants to charge me $3.99 a month for an "advanced" version of its Call Blocker feature. (Edited per community guidelines)?

Before "upgrading," I had the option to permanently block a number as soon as I hung up. Now, to reach the "Block Caller" setting, I have to:

  1. Call the number back
  2. Hang up before they answer
  3. Enable the "Block Number" setting in the 0.5 seconds before it disappears.

Who's brilliant idea was this and what can we do about it?

There is a free version, and a paid version.  The paid includes caller ID and other perks.

So.... I got caller ID for free on my old plan. Why do I have to pay for it now? I'm being add-on'ed to death.
