Anyone using NOMOROBO to stop robo calls? Is it for real?
I've got 10 blocks for Card Services/Consumer Services and get constant calls from other scammers. If I put a block on the number, a week later they call with a different number.
No, talking to them and asking to be removed from their call list doesn't work as as soon as you mention it they hang up.
I couldn't find anything bad about NOMOROBO and Uverse seems to be on their compatibility list. You need to create an account and give them your phone number.

I have been using NOMOROBO for about 3 or 4 months now, and it works great. If I get a call from one of these scammers my phone rings only one time before it goes dead on the callers end...and mine stops ringing. But, if I get a call from a legitimate business, regardless of wether or not I am expecting it, the call goes through. Same for family and friends. I had read about this program for over a year, but never installed it until I went to the AT&T website one day to pay my bill, when I noticed that the phone company was also supporting the use of this app. I clicked on the link, taking me to the website, where I got the instructions on how to install and set it up. It only took a few minutes to set up, and it's been working great. And, not only does it work well, it's also free!

AT&T customers like you have put AT&T’s CEO Randall Stephenson in a real bind. After trying to punt the responsibility for enacting tougher robocall blocking protections to the FCC, the FCC made it perfectly clear in a statement: “There are no hurdles preventing AT&T from taking immediate action to block robocalls.”
If AT&T tries to tell you that they already offer robocall blocking, make sure they know you want FREE, EFFECTIVE call-blocking tools to stop unwanted robocalls for everyone (not just the limited options they offer now).
AT&T knows they need to take action; they just don’t want to put the time and money towards a solution.

I was an early adopter of Nomorobo and I love it! It does an outstanding job of picking up those annoying telemarketing calls and the ones from "Windows" wanting to "fix" my PC while letting the legit ones through. Our evenings are much more peaceful since Nomorobo came to town. And it works great with U-Verse and AT&T Mobile!

I easily set up Nomorobo about a month ago on my U-Verse landline and I'm just an every day senior citizen. ;-) Anyway, it is working well; however, I have learned that it is blocking calls from my county government, person was told to enter some numbers and still did not get through. This has happened several times.
Yesterday I was talking with a manufacturer with whom I working on an issue and they said they tried to call me and could not get through.
There may be other calls that should have come through, but didn't, but I have no way of knowing.
So, how do I correct this problem of important phone calls not coming through?
Thank you very much for your help.

With all the various scams on the internet these days its hard to actually determine the ligitimate calls from the fakes!
Rest assured folks nomorobo is the "REAL DEAL"!
I travel in my work and when i return home for the weekends we are usually bombarded with more calls than you could imagine.
Seriously, we receive from 15 to 25 spam calls in a day!! These calls are on Saturday & Sunday!!
Very Disgusting and frankly upsetting!
NOMOROBO has eliminated my spam calls!!
I have ATT wireless and i whope this service can be added to my wireless numbers as well!!
One of the best programs I have used in years! 99.9% effective!

Maybe NoMoRobo DID exactly what it says once -- but now NoMoRobo works great at blocking robocalls, so long as those robocalls come from anyone other than Cardholder Services. Calls from the infamous Cardholder Services scam go right through NoMoRobo without being blocked. It is absolutely amazing how effective NoMoRobo can be against the robocallers that they want to block - so amazing that you just have to wonder why it is that Cardholder Services calls get through every day without fail. Does Cardholder Services have some magic technology that beats NoMoRobo's filters or could the answer be much simpler? If the call centers making the Cardholder Services calls really did have some magic technology wouldn't they be selling their service to other companies. I can't say that NoMoRobo is working with Cardholder Services instead of blocking them, but I will say that all complaints pointing out that Cardholder Services robocalls consistently get through have been deleted from NoMoRobo's Facebook page and the complainers have been blocked from posting on the page. NoMoRobo's Facebook team tells people reporting problems that they need to contact the support email address, but all you get if you email their support address is an automatic reply telling you they are too busy to bother responding.

In any event if you are still receiving spam calls go to robo's site and
manually block it. I called their customer service number, they returned
my call and we discussed their services 15 minutes..
I averaged 15/25 calls per weekend from scammers..down to 1 last weekend.
I have manually blocked a couple. But I would say nomorobo has been a good
experience for our home..I would recommend it in a heartbeat to anyone.
If you don't like it disable it! Scammers switch number banks daily. If one
slips by, block it dude!

Maybe YOU need to take it easy on the insults (which are not acceptable here).
Then it would be good for you to recognize that you just might not be the only person in the entire world who is technically competent to follow simple directions.
Reporting the spoofed numbers used by robocallers is just playing wack-a-mole, but I have still reported each and every robocall that NoMoRobo missed. In fact it was the process of reporting these calls that really brought my attention to the FACT that NoMoRobo simply does not block calls from the scammers at Cardholder Services.
If you would bother to look at recent reviews for NoMoRobo you will find dozens of others reporting exactly the same thing - NoMoRobo works great for OTHER robocalls, but it is a total failure at blocking Cardholder Services with their "reduce your interest rate" scam.
I can't say whether Cardholder Services has simply developed some magic new technology that consistently defeats NoMoRobo or if something more sinister is involved; but there is absolutely no doubt that NoMoRobo consistently fails to block calls from one well known scammer.
Two things about this bother me:
1) NoMoRobo refuses to acknowledge that there is a problem - and even took the step of deleting numerous posts from their Facebook page made by people describing this specific issue, as well as blocking those people from posting anything on the page.
2) If this really were some magic new technology or technique that enables the call centers placing robocalls for Cardholder Services to consistently beat NoMoRobo how is it that no other company has started using this same technology? The call centers that make these scam calls rarely work for just one company, but it is only Cardholder Services that is somehow magically able to avoid being blocked by NoMoRobo.
Taken together, those two facts make me wonder if there isn't a much simpler reason why Cardholder Services isn't being blocked by NoMoRobo.

I was getting 3 calls a day, 7 days a week from Cardholder Services. Since I am using Nomorobo I am getting "ZERO" calls from them!

You have to have to download the NOMOROBO app. I'm trying it now. Just having your cell phone number referred to in their database is not sufficient.
