Robocalls are a nuisance, and it isn't easy to get them to stop calling a cell phone. You don't want to be bothered by phone spam and what's more, if you have certain phone plans, you'll waste your minutes by answering phone calls from telemarketers. One way to solve this problem is to install an app, like Stealth Mode App, that blocks the robocalls. There are several different apps out there that help you manage your phone. Here's an overview of how they work.
Caller ID Is Included
Your smartphone may normally show who's calling only if they are in your phone list. An app can work just like traditional caller ID in that the caller's name and number pops up on your screen every time you get a phone call. This allows you to see who is calling so you can decide if you want to answer the phone or not. This function also eliminates the risk of blocking a call that you may want to answer.
Information Is Pulled From Reports
There are sites on the internet that collect reports from individuals who have received robocalls. If you type a phone number into a search engine, you may land on one of these websites and see what people are reporting. This gives you a good idea of what the call is about. When you install a phone app, this information is available at your fingertips as soon as you get a call. If there have been reports from others that the number is a telemarketer, collection agency, or scammer, a warning message will be shown next to the phone number as it is ringing. You may also have the option to tap the flag to see what others are reporting about the number. Once you find out it is a robocall, you can add it to the block list in the app so you won't get calls from that number again.
Blocks Are Reversible
If you find you blocked a number by mistake, you can undo the block in the app. If for some reason you want to erase everything and start over, you can delete the app and reinstall it. You can still have complete control over your phone and set the blocks to your liking so you don't have to worry about blocking real calls and missing important messages from your creditors or friends.
While you can download all kinds of apps for your phone, one that blocks robocalls is one of the most useful apps to have. You'll never have to answer a number you don't recognize since all the information you need about the caller is displayed on your phone as soon as it rings.Share
