Robo Call and Spam Text Blockers — Anyone Pay to Use Them

I’m tired of all the spam texts and robo calls.

Any experiences using Robokiller or Nomorobo? (I found an article that said the former is better, but who knows.)

Most phones these days have spam or call blocking features. Mine blocks a thousand numbers before you have to reset it back to zero.

I have the paid blocker from AT&T (the irony) and it barely does anything. Perhaps those others are better.

Just switch to the latest Google Pixel phone. It comes baked in with it, and anything that might happen to slip by you can easily screen the call with an automated message. Works like a charm.

^ I forgot to add, buy it directly from Google, not your carrier. You'll get all the latest updates for Android immediately.

I pay 2.99/mo.for Hiya, a spam blocking app. It's not perfect but better than the built-in one from Verizon.

There is supposed to be a federal mandate that went into effect this year. SHAKEN or STIRRED or SPOONED or something, that will eliminate them.

I now get texts that say: AT&T Free Message: Thank you for paying your bill. We’d like to send you a gift as a reward [insert link to download malware].

I need this shit to stop!

R2, same, hell I think my most recent spam text came from "AT&T" themselves informing me that I came in "second place for the free iPad drawing."

R7 I just started getting those damn things in the last few days - I must have gotten a dozen in the last couple of days

What?! I was in the Robocall thread!

Somehow my post ended up in a Joe Covid Rogan thread. Anyway, here goes3

AT&T fucking sucks. I had been with t-mobile for fifteen years. AT&T had a plan where you get an iPhone 12 Pro Max when you switch to their plan. I needed a new phone, and I didn't think there would be much difference in their service, so I switched.

Now I have a phone that has 5G capability but the speed is SO slow, I'll never even know what that means. It hasn't been this slow since 2010. FML.

Not a fan of AT&T.
