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:
- Call the number back
- Hang up before they answer
- 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?
