Call Filter, previously named Caller Name ID, is a premium service that lets you see the following contact details for unknown callers*:
- Phone number
If the caller has uploaded an image to their Call Filter profile and you are using an Android® or BlackBerry® device, you'll also see their picture. iPhone® users will not see any pictures. You can also upload your own picture in the app to display when you call other Call Filter subscribers.
If your device is eligible, Caller Filter helps you better manage incoming spam calls with the following features:
- Spam detection: get alerts if an incoming call is likely a robo caller, spam, or potential fraud. More FAQs about spam detection.
- Spam reporting: report a phone number after they've called. This information helps us improve our spam detection service. How to report a number as spam.
- Spam blocking: set up your spam filter and personal block list to automatically send unwanted calls to voicemail.
*Service is not available for restricted or unlisted numbers. Delivery of caller names and pictures may not be available in all areas and some devices may only display the caller's name.
