That’s right, raise your hand if you're tired of those annoying robocalls? We’re taking action against the bad guys that reduced their traffic dramatically, resulting in a reduction of between 250 million to 500 million calls to Verizon customers per month. Add that up and Verizon customers have avoided more than 10 billion robocalls and counting!!

With Call Filter, customers can block or avoid many robocalls at no cost. With just a few taps on the free Call Filter app or by going to your My Verizon profile (for those on iOS devices), you’ll be able to choose to block all spam risk levels — or keep them from going to voicemail — in order to silence spam callers.

If you want extra protection, you can upgrade to Call Filter Plus for just $2.99 per month. That version of the app offers additional features, including:

  • Caller Name ID
  • Spam LookUp
  • Personal Block List
  • Spam Risk Meter
