RoboKiller: Spam Call Blocker for Negative User Reviews

Don’t waste your money!!These so-called spam call blockers are in fact spams!! They don’t work! Period!! Why should they?? You’d think spammers with all their talents sit and watch how their only source of income gets blocked?!! I usually get 2 or 3 spam calls. I thought pay for this app and see how it works! It does not! Just feel sorry for my stupidity wasting my money for 1 year subscription! It’s passed 30 days so no way I can ask for refund! Yes, I am patient to wait and hope this app would work after missing few spam calls but it failed blocking any of these spam calls which look like legit local numbers!! Be smarter than me, take advantage of my experience (which cost me $25+) and don’t even bother installing this app!!.Version: 4.8.2

Getting worse with every updateI started my subscription two years ago. I liked it at the beginning. I have a handyman business and get unknown calls every day. RoboKiller is ruining my business. If the number isn’t in my contacts, it thinks the calls are spam. But yet “Spam Call” and “Unknown Caller” calls come thru quite regularly. I am now forced to cancel my subscription and delete the app. I got tested for Covid. I was sent a text telling me I was positive but RoboKiller sent it to my junk file. I later missed a call from the health dept trying to reach me about the results and again RoboKiller silenced the call not allowing it to go through. If any call was considered important, this was the call and RoboKiller stopped it!!! I just updated the app yesterday and set it to the low setting. This setting is supposed to be more relaxed in allowing calls to come thru. RoboKiller is simply blocking almost every number not found in my contacts. Bye bye RoboKiller!!! Oh, I forgot. The health dept finally reached me. During the whole conversation our connection kept breaking up. It was bad. We finally managed to finish. When I hung up, RoboKiller sent a survey asking how the conversation was thru the app. I didn’t know my calls started to go thru the app. Well, it was horrible. Yet another reason to avoid the app..Version: 5.5.0

Too aggressiveI have had RoboKiller in the past, and it did greatly reduce the daily multitude of unwanted calls. After discontinuing it, gradually these increased again to multiple unwanted calls per day. I tried another app by my cellphone carrier, which was absolutely worthless, so I decided to reactivate RoboKiller. It immediately reduced unwanted calls, but it blocked calls that should have been allowed. One caller today that was in my call history, as I called them first, was blocked. So I unblocked them on the RoboKiller app. Next call was blocked, as well. So I added them to my contact list, and their next call was blocked, too! This is absolutely unacceptable, so I’m done with RoboKiller. I’m not fond of their cheesy AnswerBots. They are mildly entertaining and represent what I would like to say to the sleaze ball scammers who call, but the fact is that most of those calls are recordings, themselves, so there goes the entertainment value of listening to the recordings of their responses. This begs my next question, as to why the phone companies allow this crap in the first place? If the technology exists to allow phone scammers to hijack local phone numbers as if they are my neighbors, does the same technology not exist to prevent this activity in the first place? Get with it ATT, Sprint and others! Congress, Trump, DOJ???.Version: 4.3

Canadian carriers charge you for screeningEvery call screen is forwarded to a US number. If you do not have a US plan you pay the charges for every call. They need a Canadian number and they should make this clearer!.Version: 5.5.0

Stay away from this app.The app only works to screw up your device. It does forward the spam calls but also captures legitimate calls. Then if you try to remove it it will trash your voicemail completely. It is NOT ready to be used with Canadian carriers..Version: 4.7

It works but...It was fun listening to a marketer talking to Samuel L Jackson for a full 1 minute but the app didn't work me. I live in Canada and some of these calls would get forwarded to an US number - these 2 features (call forwarding and long distance) are not included in my plan. I ended up paying and extra $30 for my last month's bill. Doing this every month just to zap telemarketers is not worth it to me. I have contacted apple for a refund..Version: 5.5.0

Trial then payIt’s not free. It’s a free trial and then a monthly pay service.Version: 5.6.2

I don’t like RoboKillerI need to know how to cancel my subscription or who to call. I do not want to be charged for a service that is answering important calls with the message I chose because I trusted it to work for all spam calls. Some spam calls are coming through. It does not appear to be able to always know who is spam & who is not. I see where I am supposed to be renewed April 2019 . I don’t want renewed at all. I don’t have any clear information on how to keep from being charged again. Updated: This blocked my moving company from contacting me Oct 2018, plus another business where a friend of mine works. Neither were able to contact me nor did they appreciate the message. It put stress on my move & had I not called the moving company, my move would have been cancelled that day. This caught a few spam calls, but RoboKiller really can’t tell when it is true spam or an important call much of the time. I hate the fact there is no customer service to contact by phone & you’re subscription will be automatically updated if you can’t unsubscribe or contact them to cancel it. I can’t delete it off my phone or following the instructions via computer because the program gives me messages that it did not work. I want my subscription cancelled I want this off of my phone with no error messages of how it is unable to uninstall.Version: 4.3

Not worth itThis app did nothing to stop scammers and spam calls. When it did work it blocked the calls I wanted. Don’t waste your money in getting this app..Version: 5.6.2

Doesn’t work in Canada!Apple should kick this app off the store! Absolutely criminal! They keep referring you to their website for help. And everything is related to American cell phone carriers. Absolute garbage. You should be ashamed you criminals!.Version: 5.7.6

Needs a setting to allow us to block ALL calls if wanted...It would be Nice if there was an option to set the call blocking up to where it blocks ALL calls not in our contact list. Lately a lot of the spammers have been getting past the auto blocking from just simply putting a plus (+) sign in front of the phone number. I have literally seen where the spammer will first try and call from a spoofed neighbor number where RoboKiller blocked it, and then they immediately try again right after but just simply putting a + sign in front of that exact same phone number and it gets past the call blocking. It would just be nice if we could opt to block ALL phone numbers that are not in our contact list! It is very unfortunate that the spammers have made this one of the only options to eliminate their harassment calls. Because there are times where I legitimately get calls from unknown numbers that are important such as from my daughter when she needs to use somebody else’s phone to call me. So that is why it would be nice to continue to get instant alerts for any voicemails that are left so that we know that it may have been an important phone call. Please fix this and make it an update and then it would be a five star app!.Version: 4.5.2

Missing a lot of callsNeeds more work. Spam calls are getting through. Canceling my service..Version: 5.4.5

Actually encourages callsApp worked well at first and was amusing. However, a fundamental flaw in the app is despite how fun it is to punish scam spam callers with the recorded messages, the fact RoboKiller technically ‘answers’ the calls to play the funny recordings in fact provides scammer robocaller software autodialer systems an indicator your number is 1) valid and 2) gets answered. This in turn makes your number get shared by these scammers and their call generation algorithms. I paid full year $29 but sadly had to cancel it. The only callers this works on are actual human dialers. I’ve reported a clear robo caller fake debt collector scammer number to RoboKiller for quite awhile and it never blocks. It gets answered by RoboKiller and I hear the robocaller message going on and on at the same time RoboKillers funny voicemail message plays. All that is doing is telling the scammer my phone number is worth calling. Just surprised RoboKiller doesn’t block it even though I’ve reported and flagged it and several other numbers for weeks. I’m going back to just using my iPhone blocking tool. I never answer calls I don’t know anyhow. RoboKiller was fun though! It just shoots itself in the foot answering the calls. Actually encourages call activity and you can read in Popular Mechanics, Bloomberg, Wall Street Journal et al regarding the how robocaller software keeps calling and sharing phone numbers that get answered..Version: 4.4.2

What a nightmare 😡For the first year and a little more this app was wonderful. Completely stopped the spam calls. In recent months my friends and family we’re having problems getting their calls through to me. At first I thought it must be a problem with my phone but could not find any reason for the phone to be blocking the calls. Additionally I recently got a notification from RoboKiller of ability to analyze all incoming calls. I thought this might be a handy tool and so I activate it. Then I could not get any calls. All the calls were being blocked or sent straight to voicemail. this was not good. I tried to change back to the way it was working before this update and it could not be done I also finally connected the dots and realized it was Robo killer interfering with my other calls all along so since I could not fix it and I did not get very good assistance from the RoboKiller team I have deactivated the app however it just keeps going on screening calls blocking them sending them to voicemail I don’t know what I’m going to do I am hoping since I canceled the subscription which you can only cancel it based on the date that it renews so I am stuck with it until July 20 and I am hoping at that point it will finally die and go away. I don’t know what happened to this app I don’t know why it started performing like it did but it’s like an insidious virus that has infected my phone and there is no cure😤.Version: 5.4.1

The idea is cool but...I subscribed to this app and thought the idea was really cool since I get a lot of spam calls. After a month or two of all the callers just not falling for it I decided to cancel my account. After a few more months I realize I’m not receiving any voicemails. I know I have drs offices and insurance companies calling me because I was recently injured at work but I always let the phone numbers I don’t know go to voicemail. I’ve been getting a lot of calls lately but no voicemails. I tried to fix the voicemail settings on my phone but everything seemed alright. I googled about voicemail problems after using robokiller and found out I had to go to a website called deactivate my phone to get my voicemails re routed back to my phone. I guess robokiller routs your voicemails to their server and when you cancel your account it doesn’t automatically rout it back to your phone. When canceling I received no instructions how or that I had to do this. So now I have no access to my voicemails for the last three months which contain important information. I’m not sure that if I pay for another month of service to get on the app, if they are stored there or not. But I don’t want to give them more money to find out. This should not be legal..Version: 4.7.2

Did much more harm than goodI was getting a lot of spam texts and felt pretty desperate to get rid of them, so I downloaded a free trial of this. I would prefer something that just blocks texts, since I don’t care about or answer spam calls— I figure that’s what voicemail is for? It’s helped a little with my spam texts, so I added a star for that, but it’s only blocking some of them. I wouldn’t mind that if it weren’t blocking every single person who calls me and playing them this awful faux-nice message that tells them I’ve blocked their number. I’m doing volunteer calls from my phone, and it automatically blocked numbers who have tried to call me back. That makes me look really cruel to people I’m trying to help, and I hate that this app doesn’t at all consider the potential that some phone calls coming in from random numbers might be important. Outside of leaving no room for politeness, this app has completely destroyed my voicemail. I hate not knowing if I’ve missed anything important, or having any influence over what people hear when they try to call me, and I regret spending money on this. If I could turn off the call function entirely and just keep the spam text blocker, I would, but this is way, way too aggressive for me to recommend to anyone..Version: 5.4

Use to be awesome - NOW a Junk AppEver since the recent update all calls are now delivered to your phone via data using VOIP. The call quality is horrible, and the call screening is not working properly. Every single call comes through VoIP via the App including the contacts that are in my phone book. This means I’m no longer getting notifications on my Apple Watch or other Apple devices for phone calls that I’m receiving. After each phone call the app is asks for you to complete a survey on the call quality. Obviously if they’re asking for feedback after every call they know that the quality is rancid. This recent upgrade is absolutely horrible. Only reason I can think of why they would push this junk update out to consumers is because it’s saving them money by delivering calls over data and not cellular. I wish I could get a refund on the year subscription that I paid for. This is not the original service that I paid for. This App received a ton of five star reviews when it first came out and would forward the calls to your phone via cellular service. I noticed that since this update most reviews are now only one star. It’s a shame that they had such an awesome app but now this is just another soon to be deleted app from my phone. I hope they consider bringing back the original service or at least give customers the option to receive calls over cellular service as a premium option..Version: 5.4.5

I expected more.It's now been a week and I have noticed fewer calls. However, calls that may be getting blocked are not showing up in the app, so I can't really tell what it's doing (worrisome). About 50% of spam calls still get through, AND the app blocked a legitimate call that I really needed to pick up. That's a significant problem. What would be helpful: Add a toggle on the incoming call screen that allows me to flag the call as spam and automatically activate the app. I got a snippy response from a developer in which I was told that I missed the point in my original review about the answer bots (I wrote "epic fail on the answer bots. I am suspicious of all these glowing reviews as most of them sound a little silly to me.") I still maintain that they are disappointing. All the voices sound like variations on a white guy being goofy. If the bots are only supposed to waste a robocaller's time, yes, they succeed. If they are supposed to trick a robocaller into thinking they've actually hooked a live human, I don't think they go far enough. Also, why is there only one female bot out of over 20 options? And why on earth does she have to sound so fake and frivolous? ("Southern Belle"? No stereotyping there...) Really, people?! What year is this? Come *on.*.Version: 3.3.0

Do Not Get This App!Got this app about a year ago and boy it worked great did everything I needed it to do for my business and gave me relief from all the scammers and Robo calls out there! So I renewed it for another year's subscription and about two months in to that subscription they totally change the app in an update without me knowing. It totally sucked,what they did was pre-screened all my calls I had to leave my microphone on and customers,doctors, hospital appointments all had to leave messages with Robokiller.I ask RoboKiller what does listening to my phone calls have to do with blocking unwanted scam calls? Answer want to make sure your experience with us is a good one and we want to earn your trust by listening to your personal phone calls! (remember RoboKiller does not have any phone number you must contact them by email only you are totally at their mercy.) (tried there 24 hour chat helpline said it was a real person they lied it's a robot!) So what happened at the end here was Apple refused to refund my money or prorate my subscription and I had to go to my carrier to totally rid this app in my phone because they had turned on some things that I did not know about! What ever you do do not buy this app especially from Apple! (go to the Internet and look up why does Robokiller need to turn on microphone?) You Will be shocked!.Version: 5.4.1

Needs major improvementUsed for approximately 6 weeks, and have just deleted from iPhone. All of my incoming calls were forwarded to a U.S. #. I’m in Canada. My cell bill costs increased due each of these forwarded calls attracted a charge. If the caller is not already in your contact list, calls forward to the RoboKiller voicemail. App “rebooted” itself at least 3 times, and each time, would require you to sign in again. Before you can access your account, you have to enter a verification code. First time app “rebooted”, it was about 10 days before I was able to get a code. There is an option to call for the code, however, the call gets intercepted by RoboKiller. I requested, and received, a full refund from Apple..Version: 5.5.1

Does not block callsDon’t pay for this..Version: 5.6.6

No support for Canadian carriersNone of the support articles mention Canadian carriers or how to get past setup. Don’t waste your time..Version: 5.7.4

Screens calls even when call screening is turned offMissed a call from my doctor because it screened the call even though I had it turned off. Be wary about using this app until they get it fixed..Version: 5.4.5

Stops working and leads to extra carrier chargesAfter about a week and a half it simply stopped working. No change to settings, nothing. It just stopped screening calls. I also must have missed the small print about additional carrier charges. The app “forwards” calls in order to screen them. I was surprised when I received my phone bill and had been charged a flat fee for each call I received that was forwarded by the app. So in addition to the subscription fee for the app, your carrier may charge for the call forwarding. Bottom line: it cost a whole lot of money for absolutely nothing in return..Version: 5.7.8

DO NOT DOWNLOADThe damage this app has caused is so upsetting. I’m constantly missing job interview phone calls, therefore losing out on chances for a job all because phone calls never show up anymore. Not matter what I do in settings the calls don’t come up, but once I check the app...there’s like 50 missed calls by people I have in my contact list. So I have to shamefully call back begging for another chance at an interview all because I can’t get rid of this stupid app on my phone. That brings me to the second part...good luck getting rid of this thing. It’s like trying to get rid of bed bugs. You think it’s gone, but then it’s back. You can’t just delete it, you have to unregister your number and even then it might still be taking over your calls. There’s numbers you can call to unregister your phone but even after doing that my friends and family were still getting sent to RoboKiller’s weird auto message. I’m trying a handful of things tonight to try and get rid of it for good, including calling my carrier. This app makes every first impression with future employers mortifying, and good luck hearing from your friends or family. I would rather manually go through and block spam calls on my own everyday than deal with this app..Version: 5.6.0

On the fenceWhen I first downloaded this app about 2 months ago I was ecstatic! I did the week trial to make sure the app was something I wanted to pay for. This app was great and did exactly what it said it would do. I paid the yearly subscription for a product I believed did what I needed it too. And was perfect. Then the dreaded Verizon voice mail bug hit. Now, I know it was unexpected and not the fault of the app developers but I lost many voice mails. The only ones to get texted to me were from my husband. All the others just poof - disappeared. Once the fix was put in place there were many voicemails that showed up. I had 28 voice mails that were never texted to me. Some from my employer and even more from my husband which I thought were being sent by text. Now the “fix” is in place I have to go into the app to hear my voicemails, AND trust I’m getting every one. It’s frustrating that the app isn’t the same when I made the decision to pay the yearly subscription. Had I known in advance I would have done month to month and canceled. As it is I am debating deleting the app as I shouldn’t have to go into the app to hear my voice mails. And while I know they did what they could to fix it, and it’s still a great robo killer it’s just not what I paid for..Version: 3.2.0

Scam....Be aware for this people , they are taking your phone number. This is against the piracy policy of canada . They don’t have to do anything with your phone number..Version: 5.7.6

PLEASE fix this app, VERY buggy and works half the timeBefore you read please know I really think this app is wonderful and has A LOT of potential; however, MANY things need to be fixed. This summer, I been getting literally 5-10 spam calls a day. Blocking didn’t work and I was desperate for a solution. This app seemed more than perfect and had many unique features to get pay back on the scammers. However, the app keep uninstalling itself (not off my phone) when it’s hooked to blocking in settings. It doesn’t block calls when it unhooks itself from my phone blocking and I have to constantly check it it’s still hooked up, or else NOTHING gets blocked. Even when it is all hooked up and running, it blocks only 2-3 of the 10+ spam calls I get in a day. This is with blocking over 30 numbers + blocking ranges, how many more numbers and rangers do I have to block for RoboKiller to process “these similar numbers are scammers, block them.” Then, to put the cherry on top, it keeps telling me “RoboKiller has stopped working, please uninstall the app from you phone and re-install.” I had to go through the process of setting up Robo killer all over again more than 5 times now. I also have texting options set and it hasn’t blocked one text in 3 weeks; I keep getting spam. With updating my phone the app still hasn’t improved. Please, find a way to fix these issues..Version: 4.8.7

Not Able To Activate!I have been trying off & on for about 6 weeks or so to activate this app to no avail. Every time I click on the activate button, it goes through the call process then shows that it’s attempting to activate then I finally get a message that “RoboKiller couldn’t be activated at this time.” It gives you the option to try again or to get help. Well the try again just takes me through the same nowhere process and the get help option opens up a blank screen with no options for anything. So, I have to go back and click “Try Again”. There is a support option in the top right corner of the screen, and when I click on that I get another window that gives me a chat box to click on. That opens up to something that looks like it’s opening up a page then finally get the message that says “Could Not Connect - Sorry we cant connect you right now. Please try again later.” One of the notes on the bottom of the page says to “make sure WiFi is turned off when activating.” I’ve done all of these things and am still not getting connected. I got my “free” trial period and now I’m a paying customer, but am NOT getting the service I’m paying for. I am NOT satisfied and unless the people or BOTS behind this app can help me, I DO NOT recommend it. There are a lot of good reviews, but unless something changes for me, I will not change how I feel about this app. This has been more than frustrating..Version: 4.4.2

DOES NOT WORK WITH SPRINT!!!UPDATE — After I cancelled my subscription customer service admitted that with Sprint the app does not work. They also asked that positive reviews be posted on social media but negative reviews be emailed only to them. Um... no. People need to know that problems exist with this app. Original post: I heard about this app from and friend and was SO excited to try it out. Unfortunately, it’s been a headache for a month. All calls, including spam, are still ringing off the hook at all hours of the day. Also, my actual contacts are all being redirected to a RoboKiller voicemail instead of my personal voicemail on my phone. I have been in contact with customer service several times and they keep giving me new phone numbers to try to correctly install they app but none of them worked. Nor have they directly answered my question, “is this app supposed to filter calls so automated calls and spammers never or rarely actually ring through AND can the app allow my saved contacts and numbers I don’t have saved but are real people who need to reach me ring through and be directed to my personal voicemail if I can’t answer. I’ve been dealing with “Frank” and he seems nice but was utterly unhelpful. He did not respond to my latest inquiry. So to sum up, this app seemed like it would be just what I needed and wanted, but in the end it fell so short I would give it zero stars if I could, and it is not worth $5 to even try it out for a month..Version: 4.7

Don’t install from Canada!If you’re in Canada, do NOT install this. I’m at almost $100 in call forwarding charges, just to avoid spam calls. Some of the robot responses are funny, but if I knew it was going to cost extra I would never have installed it!.Version: 4.8.5

HORRIBLEDo not download in Canada. Trash app.Version: 5.6.6

Stupid appCant get it DELETED !!!!!!! Need to get my phone carrier involved . Don’t say go to the Help site .....it doesn’t work.Version: 5.6.1

RoboKiller: you’re doing false/fraudulent promotionIn Google Search, you show up as being a “FREE” app. However, scratch surface, carefully check reviews here...& see fine print: “7 day free trial, then autorenews at your regular rate. Google should de-list Robokiller—-as well as permanent “Buyer Beware” tag attached.Version: 5.4.5

Horrible App! Beware! Screws up your phone.Biggest mistake I ever made. Not only did it block unwanted callers it blocked everyone in my contacts that tried to call me. Deactivated my voicemail. Was on the phone with my carrier for an hour refreshing all my settings. What a waste of my time..Version: 5.6.6

Didn’t workI received a robocal hours after installing and setting up the app..Version: 5.7.0

Why didn’t I get this sooner?!?!This is the greatest app, if you don’t want to be bothered by annoying spam calls. I have had this app for a few days now, and only people in my contacts can actually get thru to me. Fantastic!!.Version: 5.5.2

Bad AppRobokiller can’t be deleted due to call forwarding function. To delete app, you must contact your carrier to ask them to reset your call forwarding. Who wants to do that in order to delete an app? The worst ever..Version: 5.7.7

Blocked only 2/14 numbers in first weekI downloaded this app because daily spam was ruining my life. The reviews were promising, but so far it doesn't seem to work at all. During the week long free trial, only 2 calls were blocked while I had to add 11 numbers to the blocked list! Then there was an unknown caller that I couldn't add to the block list at all! I have an iPhone, so I can't block unknown callers in my settings (Even my old windows phone could at least do that. One of infinite reasons not to buy an iPhone!!!!!) so I was really hoping this app would help. Update: since I thought adding all those numbers to the blocked list may improve the app, I kept the app past the free trial to see the results. . . The only call blocked so far was one I needed to hear from Verizon, while I'm still bombarded by Student loan forgiveness scammers daily. Ugh! Update 2: still have several unwanted calls a day. I'll get an unwanted call that has made it past RoboKiller and ignore or dismiss the call until I get the chance to manually add it to Robo's block list, but the app still sends me a notification claiming it blocked the call for me. Not true. The phone rang and I declined the call myself without your help. This kept happening from the same few numbers so I manually added them to the list and still the calls came through..Version: 3.3.0

App is a scamApp is a scam, forces you to enter your phone number before telling you that the app is not free and the cost is ridiculous. Deleted..Version: 5.6.6

Great.... but....Each time someone calls who are known callers, the app will still block that call in ways that cause the call to not connect. 95% of the time I will have to hang up on the caller and call them back. This “feature” is annoying and makes me want to stop the service. If I am expecting a call, I must “pause” the service just to be able to receive a call. Often times, the spam text messages get thru, and there is no option to report these as such. I still have to delete them. It’s a great app, I just don’t like how it takes away from my phone and inserts it into my calls.... such as when my daughter or husband call.... their pictures are not shown, and the call must go thru the app first, then if they leave a message, I don’t see the message unless I cycle thru the app to look. Also , if you don’t answer a call, the app gets “stuck” and my phone will continue to ring and ring.... annoying AF, and drains my battery especially if I am away from my phone. This feature has left my phone ringing for over 3 hours until I notice my phone is almost drained of battery. Fix these bugs and perhaps I will raise the stars..Version: 5.4.3

Even your review doesn’t work properly.Does not work. Blocked all calls..Version: 5.7.2

A waste of space.How in f••k do I get rid of this POS?!?!.Version: 4.6

Fraud/scamJust received my cell bill almost an additional 80 dollars in charges for every call I answered..Version: 5.5.1

RoboKiller takes overRoboKiller takes over my iPhone voicemail and missed calls - it completely disabled the iPhone Visual Voicemail and missed calls features. Also I missed many legit and important calls - like from a new doctor’s office, or a prospective client, where I don’t have their number in my contacts. It would be better if it just dealt with the robo calls and allowed me to chose which calls go to the RoboKiller..Version: 5.6.1

Not Free, Who Knew?I don’t normally write reviews for the apps I download, just the ones that have NO functionality without purchasing or if they have some sort of inherent flaw otherwise. I think this app could have been great. I’m just not willing to spend 30$ on something like this. IMO, it’s shady that any company doesn’t warn a consumer of their application’s complete inability to work without a payment. All I see before downloading this app (and giving out my phone number to a company I know nothing of besides what they themselves tell me) is that it has in-app purchases. Neither apple nor the company’s own advertising materials states that this app is not actually free. Indeed, when you open the application it tells you to input a phone number. This is to “confirm” your number. Only after this are you taken to a screen where you can purchase an annual plan for 30$. None of the functions work without a plan and instead of offering a “lite” version like many apps do, this just brings you straight to a subscription screen. I have now deleted this app - since I don’t have 30$ to waste on an app like this. But I wanted to warn anyone who may be considering downloading this. This application does not work AT ALL unless you give them 30$. I’m not going to comment on anything else, simply because I did not get a chance to use it..Version: 4.2.1

Not satisfied.. and unable to removeI downloaded this app as I own a couple businesses and from doing several ads , receive regular telemarketers or robotic calls that interfere with my daily phone usage. Someone how I went to try it out for a couple days and for some reason the yearly amount was deducted from my bank account. Issue 1. After using for a couple days I realized this was nothing that was going to work for me as it blocked the right calls and several potential new customer calls as they weren’t saved in my contacts yet. Issue 2. Upon trying to see if my money could be refunded realized that was probably not going to happen so I tried to get used to the app again. This time was no different and actually I lost a lot of money missing new customers calls. I did the next thing I could think of and remove/uninstalled the app and chop the yearly amount up as a loss. But it didn’t end there, now barely any of my calls came through even ones that were programmed in my contacts giving the caller an “ unreachable/ unavailable at this time “ message and for me I would see in a text that “ ******* number tried reaching Robokiller without success “ . I went through all my apps and couldn’t find where Robokiller was still on my phone. I had to download it again and try to go into settings. Months later and I’m still dealing with this issue with no resolve. Please help.Version: 5.4.2

IneffectiveI really wanted this app to work for me. I get up to a dozen automated calls everyday, so when I came across RoboKiller and I read all these amazing reviews (which after trying the product I'm really wondering if they weren't mostly written by the company themselves trying to get people to use their crappy app) I thought my life was about to change. It did say that Robokiller learns over time, so I didn't expect it to block every spam call right from the get go. But after several months now of paying for a subscription, well over half of my spam calls still come through! I rarely answer the calls anymore because usually it's just a machine, so you can't even get the satisfaction of bullying the jerk on the other end of the line (another reason this app isn't that 'funny' to me like it's intended to be; you can't really prank a machine with a stupid answering machine). I notice that many of the unknown calls that still come through will pop up in the RoboKiller notifications after I let the phone stop ringing like they're taking credit for a call they didn't even block! Try the free trial if you want, but don't be dumb like me and pay months for a subscription that feels more like a scam than a service intended to block scams..Version: 3.6.2

Call forward will cost you big $$$Calls get forwarded to a long distance number. Got a shock of $200 bill on what I thought was my unlimited plan. Turns out call forward cost me both minutes and long distance. When someone called me was actually routed long distance and I was paying big!!!.Version: 5.7.2

This problems and trying to get help to fix are not worth the money paid foru itThis program was best under the original developers. Yes that is what I said. Now I cannot get in touch with a real live human being about an issue that makes or breaks the deal of paying $26. something a year. When I first signed up I think it was like three dollars. Now I can write a lengthy email explaining VERY SPECIFICALLY the problem and the resppnse I get back is like trying to write to a stupid computer, or, some foreign support who doesn’t “get it” what my problem is! This is the problem. I signed up with True talk USA ( about a 50% savings of what I paid Verizon ) so I could save myself some money because bills are hard to pay with job losses etc. The problem is: I am given a phone number already programmed into instructions for robokiller set up, AND ITS THE WRONG PHONE NUMBER to use with Pure Talk! My email ends with verizon, so someone probably thinks I am a nut case! So they send me a list of numbers to use when I find out from PURE TALK USA WHAT TRANSFER WIRES THEY USE. Ok I am told its AT&T. Good luck trying to put the correct number in... the one given cannot seem to be changed! So why did I bother to find out the company wires they use when in fact I cannot change it? Furthermore, why bother when the company is so reliant on computers and foreigners, that I cannot get any satisfaction regarding my issue? Apple, I want my 26 dollars back. Now..Version: 5.4.4

Great concept there are MAJOR glitchesWhen I first started using this app I thought it was great. However there are two MAJOR PROBLEMS: 1) If you are expecting an important call Robo Killer may block it. At first your response may be to pause the blocking ( this is supposed to be an option) however it didn’t work and I missed 5 service support calls because the app blocked them even though it was supposedly paused for 24 hours. In this case my phone never rang and all the calls were immediately sent to voicemail. This is after I told Robo Killer to allow those numbers! So I ended up with a bunch of voicemails saying they would try again, only to be silently blocked again! 2) the tech support for this app is abysmal! They use an answer bot which has limited responses and basically sends you in circles trying the same unsuccessful “ solution.” Eventually I had I resorted to the last and final solution- I canceled my subscription and deactivated my phone with their service. Since my subscription wasn’t due to expire until August 2020, I guess I’m out some $$. An expensive lesson. It’s sad that something that could have been great failed due to these glitches! Obviously the developers don’t care enough about their customers to provide any actual support. I’d give this ZERO STARTS if I could. 😡.Version: 4.9.3

Doesn’t workI bought 1 yr. and have since cancelled my subscription so it can’t be renewed. I’ve had this software on my phone for a month now. Since I installed it I’ve been experiencing AN INCREASE in the number of scam calls. Today alone I received 3 foreign calls..Version: 4.6

Garbage appDeleted app and it’s still on my phone taking my voicemail.Version: 5.7.4

Be careful. You will be charged, a lot, and get zero benefit.I received a fat phone bill for the month that I used robokiller. They forwarded my calls to a number at my expense. I guess I should have read the fine print. On top of all that, it doesn't work. Actual people who call you cannot reach you. A better option is turning off your phone. You don't receive any calls (scam or regular) exactly like what happens with robokiller but without the monthly subscription and extra charges on your phone..Version: 5.6.5

Love it but...It blocks all of my calls. I misplaced my phone in the house one day. So I called my number from the home phone to listen for the ring tone. RoboKiller blocked the call even though my home phone is in my contacts list. I wonder how many legitimate calls it blocked. P.S. I did eventually find my phone..Version: 5.7.4

HORRIBLE VoIP inbound call qualityThey are now forcing all inbound calls through their VoIP provider rather than through your own cell provider which in my case is Verizon. Terrible voice quality, delays, echoes, call drops, calls even from contacts going to VM which can be very dangerous like when my wife (yes, both in contacts and whitelisted) called me in an emergency and kept going to their terrible voicemail system. I understand the reason and in theory it’s good but they are killing the patient with the medication. Also your voice mails are now on their system not your cell provider. If you drop their service you lose any important saved VMs plus we won’t even go into the privacy issues. I’ve been with them since inception but had to give up my 1yr sub because the service has become horrible. Sometimes it pays to leave well enough alone. Sadly I have switched to another, not as good, option. Maybe if they get away from their horrible voip provider I’ll try again. Now I see they are advertising on TV and they will get even bigger and even worse. I find it’s better to have nothing than this. They really have gone bad over the years. Oh, and forget their support. Some guy called me to try and help (it didn’t) and gave me his return phone number which always goes to voicemail and messages never get returned. You win Robokiller, you got my $30 subscription and I get nothing. Too late to cancel..Version: 5.4.1

It also blocks important callsI downloaded this app to try out during the election season with the robocalls intensively increasing. It worked and released some stress for about 2 days. Then I noticed a trend where it was sending the spam audio to people that were calling me for medical reasons, if I tried to circumvent the app and answer the call that I know wasn’t spam it would answer in the app and I couldn’t hear them and there was a delay in our conversation making it very confusing. I had to hang up on several calls and call them back. This was extremely stressful because it was all local calls for my family’s medical needs. I was expecting a call earlier this week and decided to follow up 5 days later and was told they tried calling me twice but it kept ringing and ringing and they couldn’t leave a voicemail. Thankfully I remembered, now I’m wondering what calls or important information I may have missed though. I also deleted and removed the app during a highly stressful day in which I was going back and forth with medical offices and doctors/pharmacies and the app was still taking over my phone. I’ve looked through my settings and I still can’t figure out what to do to make it stop. I’m impatiently waiting for the trial to end so my phone will go back to normal..Version: 5.6.1

DONT BUY IT PEOPLEIf you wanna throw your money away l, go ahead and buy it! This app sucks your money in terms of the forwarding calls! I canceled the service with them month ago! And paid 4$ for that month! But today I received my phone bill and I saw there is 150$ extra! When I checked the records all say forwarding calls to Minneapolis!.Version: 5.5.1

Reduction in spam callsI had been receiving 2-8 telemarketer or robocalls a day. The Do Not Call Registry is pretty much useless, and just trying to duck these scammers and spammers is like walking through a minefield, thanks to their ability to use “neighbor spoofing.” As careful as I had been, I had called a couple contractors and was expecting a local call - and in came a couple calls that got me on their list - and the deluge began. So I signed up for RoboKiller. It has blocked some calls, has let some pass through, and is okay... I do think there was a “magic bullet” that a caller made, and RoboKiller played the “number disconnected” recording. When that one caller heard that, it sounded like he was saying, “what? Hm, uhh...” and next thing I knew, my call volume dropped dramatically - so, to be honest, it seemed like there was a database that a bunch of scammer-spammers were sharing, and once one of them got that message, my number was removed from the database, and all the callers accessing it stopped calling. Good! But since all that, I am still receiving several calls a week that slip through, about as many as RoboKiller blocks. I don’t think it’s RoboKiller’s weakness, nearly so much as the sophistication the scammer-spammers use to spoof a number that looks legit. Still, it’s not blocking the calls, and I am exploring for a better solution..Version: 4.0.0

Costly trial - awful experienceThis app was recommended as one of the best. My experience was the opposite. I’m in Canada and after 5 days realized that the app was not doing anything for me. So I deleted it within the free trial period. What I didn’t know - here’s the sneaky part - was that the app was dialling a US phone multiple times a day. And I was being charged for each call. At the end of November I got a bill for $40 of these calls. It shows up as ‘call forward’ on the bill. The calls continue every day even into December. I am being billed for these calls. There is no way to stop them. No way to contact the company. No instructions on what to do to stop these bills. This is simply atrocious. Unless I cancel my phone I will be paying for these calls in perpetuity. A very bad way of trying to win customers when your app makes sneaky long distance calls which can’t be stopped even after removing the app. Just terrible..Version: 5.6.6

DON’T INSTALLThis app is like a virus, once you set it up, I becomes next to impossible to remove. Redirects important calls, and will mess up your life until you do a phone restore..Version: 5.7.6

Deactivation Is ImpossibleI downloaded this app because I was receiving so many spam calls. And it did help with the spam calls..... but blocked every single call that wasn’t on my contact list. Even numbers I’ve recently called, they blocked call backs from the same number. After missing many important medical calls, I decided to delete the app and cancel the subscription. Also, be mindful that if you call 911 and get disconnected, if the operator tries to call you back, Robokiller will block them. That’s dangerous! I tried calling my phone after deleting the app and canceling the subscription, but my calls were still being blocked. I went to their technical support and followed the instructions for deactivating but that just caused further issues. The only thing the deactivation did was stop the Robokiller voicemail response. All of my calls are still being sent directly to voicemail. I don’t even get the notification of an incoming call, or have the option to accept or deny a call. So I’m having to contact my phone carrier, AT&T, to try and fix the issue. Or worst case scenario I’ll have to get a new phone number. Spam calls are annoying, but this app is awful and needs major improvement! Difficulty canceling subscription, deactivating app, and they have no phone number to call for support; they just have an option to email and then have an automated chat..Version: 5.5.0

Canadian Users BewareThis app has been an expensive irritation. It was unclear to me when I purchased it that it relied on call forwarding - and that call forwarding was not included in my cell plan. So I got charged a call forwarding fee for every spam call. All calls (even allowed callers) go to RoboKiller’s voice mail, not my provider’s voice mail. Theoretically you should be able to record your own outgoing message on RoboKiller, but it won’t let me do that. So people who are used to my voicemail are confused. And many times it sends known callers directly to that voicemail without letting me answer my phone. The support site has some helpful articles that suggest why this app won’t work with my carrier - but that is only clearly a problem after you pay your approx $50/yr for the app. There is no live support and the support page suggests that you will wait a week for a reply to emails. I cannot wait a week. The problems are too serious. I have to eat the $50, pay for my carrier’s call forwarding fee and now presumably will be tormented when I try to remove this invasive app from my phone. There is some script that you have to run to actually remove the components from your phone. And you have to select your carrier for that to work and since the app does not work well with my carrier, I anticipate the torment will continue. Worst app I have ever got suckered by. It is worse than a waste of money - it is actively making life worse. The 7 day trial was simply not long enough to recognize the defects of this app and its problematic interface with my carrier. I doubt that this App should be permitted on the Canadian App Store..Version: 5.7.9

Serious privacy issuesBefore downloading this app, take a look at the data they’re allowed to collect. I deleted it after 4 days because it was so glitchy and spam calls, texts and emails. really ramped up. That was no coincidence! Fortunately, I had registered a number through another app but it was for work and I didn’t want to change the number but I was forced to. I have an email address that I use when an email address is required but I don’t want emails from the company. I occasionally go online and quickly browse through it but it’s all spam. That’s the email address I used for this app. Within 2 weeks, my spam emails had more than doubled. The same thing happened with my daughter but she was changing carriers and asked for a local phone number. She’d given them her old work email so she escaped all the calls, texts and emails. She feels sorry for whoever eventually gets that phone number. Selling information might or might not be a a company practice, it might be a nefarious employee but a background check and a good IT dept should be able to fish out the. If you’re paying for this app, you might be handing them more information than they need and you’ll become their victim! I deleted it when I was told it would work better without my VPN. I’m sure it will work better...FOR THEM! They want access to my location and I won’t trust them with anything after reading Apple’s note on the info they gather. I’m using Apple’s option to send unknown caller to VM..Version: 5.7.6

DisappointedI only download the app because of trilogy media I love their YouTube channel and they promoted this app is and how great it was all for me I’m very disappointed in the app and customer support does not mean up to the standards that channel trilogy media made them out to be The customer support from this app to me does not exist the problems I’m having there’s no way to address them through their stupid computer system they have they should have a spot we can contact someone in person to leave a message or an email with stating what the issues are the idea behind the app is great but the support behind the app does not exist in my opinion Do not download if u live in Canada.Version: 5.6.6

Doesn’t work! No answer Bot!DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!! SCAM ALERT!! I deleted the app and went to the website but there’s no other option to cancel and a week later they charged me $46.32 Canadian!!!!! I originally wanted this app because of IRLRosie, love her lots, she said she was one of the answer bots and I really need an answer bot, but this app only allows me to add a number to a block list which my phone already does. Sadly these ROBOKILLER developers scammed me out of $46 and I still have to deal with the same scammers calling me with their burner numbers everyday. I’m thoroughly disappointed..Version: 4.8.5

Nope! (How has everyone fallen for this scam?!)A few months ago I started to get maybe 2-3 spam calls a week - this after getting none for the first six months I had my new phone. I decided to give this app a whirl, and immediately after I installed it (as in within the first few hours), it said it had blocked four spam calls! What?! I had never received that many before, and it almost seemed as if by downloading and subscribing to the app, my number had been thrown out there into a database for spammers. I had the app on my phone for a few days, and it was telling me that it was blocking, on average, 5-6 calls a day, when before getting the app, I was not receiving that many a week! Not only that, some spam calls were not even being blocked! I immediately unsubscribed and deleted the app. Know how many spam calls I get a week now? Maybe 2. It appears this app either (a) deliberately gives your number to spammers so it can tell you how great it is in blocking spam calls you were never getting before installing the app, or (b) is just making up numbers, so you feel that you cannot live without it. Of course, this is just my experience. I am but one person. I cannot say that it doesn’t work for others, because again, I’m just me..Version: 5.5.0

Why Bother?No Canadian carriers, so no Canadian customers. Now I have to find out how to ditch this waste of my time!.Version: 4.6
