AT&T Call Protect


AT&T Call Protect

I had installed AT&T Call Protect on my Samsung 5 that I bought from AT&T.  I just got a new phone as a gift from my son but he bought it at Best Buy.  I tried to install the app on my new phone and got a message 'your device must be enabled with AT&T HD Voice to use this service.  I am not sure what that is, I am still using my same AT&T plan and account.  Before I go back to Best Buy does anyone know if this won;t work just because it is from someone besides them?

Hello @p2505f,

It can be confusing to receive the message about your line needing HD Voice for Call Protect.  I will be more than happy to help guide you towards the right direction!

We have a great article which has information on Call Protect, including a couple of troubleshooting steps. I recommend taking a look through it! I will also be following up with you via private message to ensure everything is working correctly. This will appear in your Forum's Inbox.

Have an amazing day!

Re: AT&T Call Protect


If you new phone is not an ATT branded android you cannot use call Protect.  You can use Hiya.  Hiya is the developer of call Protect.
