    So I keep reading Verizon is providing this free now. I've already got the app on my phone but it's still saying $2.99/month. Is there a way to get it free yet?

    You can get it here. Go to section that has the "enroll now" link.

    And of course, my unlocked phone on Verizon is reported as not being compatible with the free filter.

    This whole unlocked thing is really BS. I get that Verizon can’t assure that OS builds not done by them may not be able to do everything, but why not allow some core changes or packages to support these phones better?!

    I have an unlocked IPhone X on VZW and I was able to install the app and activate everything successfully. I’ve heard from other members that the website may say it’s not compatible but it will still work.

    Mine looks like that too... you can checkmark the top features but that's not really signing up

    That's really strange. I followed the prompts, took me to the Verizon sight. I signed in and and set up 3 lines on the free version. Maybe just call Verizon and sign up that way (or open a chat with them).

    Here is a direct link to the free and non free features.

    Another way to block unwanted spam calls is to set your Do Not Disturb to only allow your contacts to call through. Anyone who is not a contact but is a legitimate caller will leave you a message. I had to do this to my mom's phone. She is elderly and now she does not even realize when a spam call arrives. Yes, it is in the call log but they don't leave messages and we don't have to worry about her picking up the phone when someone on the other end is trying to do her harm.

    Verizon doesn't make it easy. But here's how I found the free version:

    1) Open your Verizon Call Filter app on your phone
    2) Press on the three horizontal lines = in the top left corner by "Recent Activity" to expand the main menu
    3) Press "Account"
    4) Press "Subscription Status"
    5) At the bottom of the screen (if you're not currently a subscriber), you'll see "Other options" below "Subscribe Now"--this is where the free version can be selected.

    It's not going to catch everything if that's what you were expecting. It's building a database through user reporting along with other algorithms

    The problem I see is that they (scammers) use a different number every time they call. I get at least 1 or 2 calls from my area code a day (sometimes as many as 4), each one regarding "lowering my interest rate due to a great payment history"... funny that they all have east Indian accents....I digress.. When I ask which card they are calling about, they hang up. Each time they call I block the number. I have blocked 184 calls so far.
    My point, it's going to be hard to create an effective data base when they never use the same number. Yet I remain hopeful that something will be done.

    My experience shows many scamers also are using disconnected numbers. I tested this buy calling right back to these numbers and getting a disconnected message from the carrier. Of course the carrier will not say how this can happen.
