Mr. Number Call Block & Lookup App Reviews

1 add

I firmly believe that this app takes your info and shares it with business. Ever since I downloaded it, I started to get 5-10 unsolicited phone calls everyday. I only downloaded the app because a little girl that my daughter is friends with has boundary issues. Now suddenly I'm getting tons of calls from businesses trying to sell me stuff? Yeah right. Don't download this app.

Now charging to look up names

App was great until it started asking me to pay for a service that’s been free for years.

Used to be good

Used to be good before they got money hungry and now it’s useless

Caller ID charges

This app used to work well but now you have to pay to see the caller ID? My carrier also now charges for this too. What used to be free is now another scam to the consumer to can make these companies more money. So add Mr. Number to the scam list because without an ID I won’t answer your call.

Good app! And would be even better if....

it allowed us to block ‘Unknown’ (anonymous, number deliberately hidden) callers. There is no way to block “unknown caller” and those are the majority of the spam calls that still get through. Thank you for a good app!


Great app always gets the calls and lets me know I would recommend to everyone

Great until premium now for caller names.

Used often to check unfamiliar numbers as don't usually answer numbers that I don't recognize or don't leave messages. Now am getting messages that won't let me know who's calling unless you pay.

Used to be good

Used to actually be useful before “premium” came out. What’s the point now? So I can still be confused about who is calling me?

Well I used to like it...

The app was great for years until this last update. Now they want me to pay for a service that they used to provide for free. Time to delete this one and look elsewhere.

Mr Number

I love this app.


Mr number was a cool app to have. Not so much anymore since they are charging to give the name of the person calling. Something they’ve been doing for free.

Does not block spam calls

This app does not block spam calls, it just notifies you when the caller is a spam caller. I still get a dozen spam calls everyday

Not as good as previous versions

This version doesn’t block calls like the old one did!!!! I have always loved mr number and recommended it to friends. With this version it blocks no one. Give alert does nothing! Very disappointed!!!!!

This was great until recently

Suddenly everything is marked “Premium”. If Mr Number wants me to buy in, why don’t they give me a heads up? This feels slimy.

The best

After years of dealing with a regular phone and spammers and then call waiting was helpful but this app by far is the most reliable and the fact that it goes to voicemail in case I do miss an important call is what I like the most because I’m one of those people that thinks every call could be important. I am so tired of dealing with spammers especially around the holidays Thank you Mr. number


That’s all!

Wack app

I thought this would work..not at all!!!!!😡😡😡😡

I had this app for years... Now they wanna charge

I loved this app, did the job. But now they want you to pay. Not cool.

Free but not have to pay?

This was a good app but it recently required payment. Bait and switch.

Now Mr. Number is charging us for names?

This is BS. It’s been free for last year now you are charging us? That’s crap.

Mostly works

I have it setup to block numbers, 4 out of 5 make is past without being blocked. Some say name available with premium so I try to find a premium version but it won’t connect to iTunes.

Forcing to pay for a once free app

I will not pay to upgrade.

Works great to avoid unnecessary calls!!

I've had huge issues with telemarketers and spoof calls so this app works perfect for me. I'm not super techy savvy but it's easier to figure out and set up to warn or block unwanted calls. Definitely recommend!!!

Not a free caller ID anymore.

Ever since version “4.0” Mr. Number stopped providing Caller ID for free. They now want users to pay $2.99 a month for the privilege of using their service.... Only problem is that they built their database by harvesting data from people’s address books, and by users crowdsourcing spammers and scammers. I didn’t even realize I was giving Mr. Number my info until it was too late... Now they want to take your contacts for free, have you do the work by reporting spam callers, and charge you $2.99 a month? No thanks!


I’ve had this app for years and I’ve always recommended it to friends. Now that they have made it to where you have to pay to see whose number it is....deleted.

Zero stars

I use to see ppl name now I have to buy app in order to see who’s calling me.:. Bye bye

Spam calls still go through

Spam calls still go through. I never once got warned. And now they have a premium option. Used to be a great app. Not anymore.

New pay model

1 star. They downgraded the app to require monthly $$$ for key functionality.

Needs a few upgrades

This app is cool but it would be great if they could change outgoing caller ID and have a recording answer when telemarketing weezels call


A great call blocker. My phone is finally quite

Incomplete Protection

Does not allow blocking spoofed calls. Even with all options set to block, it rarely blocks calls. A very defective app. Wish I could give it a negative rating

Forcing to Premium

I used to love this app, now they are trying to force me to change to the Premium and instead I’ll be deleting this app.


Really liked the app before. Not that it truly stops them completely. But it at least told you about the call and how many reports the number had on it. Now you need to pay to get anything. Will he deleting it.

Now it costs

This was a free app that works good but now they want $2.99 a month. The information you get with out paying is useless. I will delete the app now

It works!!!

This has definitely filtered out calls. If one gets through, it’s flagged that it might be questionable. Definitely recommend

Won’t block unknown callers

So what’s the point? Still get scams everyday

Awful bait and switch app. Don’t DOWNLOAD

I had this app for a few months, free and it worked. Now whenever I go to look up a number, it says I can fine out who’s calling only in premium! BOOOOOO- HISSS

Liked the older version better

Mr. Number allowed you to see the name before and now in order to see the name you have to upgrade to premium

Disappointing update

I really liked this app, but the recent update is now charging for identifying numbers. Guess it’s time for a new app.

After years of use now it wants $ to use.

I have loved this app for a while. Very helpful.... until the 4.2 version. Now to see who called I have to upgrade and pay for premium.

Use to be free

This app use to be free now they have in app purchases.


Very happy with this application. If you are looking for a call blocking app to identify telemarketers or spammers this is the one. Easy userface and all around great app.

No longer good, since you have to pay 4ID

Used it for years. But now they want you to pay to get the names, so what’s the point? They just made r so you have to pay, about a month ago. Uninstalling and reinstalling other, similar apps

Awesome app

Thanks for this amazing app. Helps keep scams and fraud away by giving you a little background on the caller. Thanks Just got ruined by charging for the name of who is calling, this used to be free in the app. Time delete the app

Does not work like it should.

The identification aspect sometimes returns a useful result after the call has come through. I often get called by numbers that I specifically told the app to block. Before anyone asks I gave the app permission to block in phone settings. Why have this app if it only occasionally helps with identification and does not block calls when I ask it to? Not useful.

Not sure what...

Not sure what happens when this app is used. When I forget about the app and leave it alone, maybe I get two calls a week. When I “protect”, which is the update feature, I’ll get like 3-4 in the same hour. Now I cant even see the name of the annoying callers without a premium subscription. Didn’t used to be that way. I guess I need to try a different app...

Loss of service

Now wanting to charge for names associated with numbers. Was free. Greedy!

USED to be good

They updated their stupid app so now you can only see names of who's calling if you pay. That was the only reason I used the app. No longer going to use if they're just going to try and take money from me

Great app!!

Thanks it has reduced my junk calls to zero!

Used to be free

Suddenly there is a premium version. I will never pay a subscription for something like this. Disappointed. Was a great app. I recommend it to many of my friends and family. It would have been the right thing to do to grandfather those who had already downloaded the free version in with the new “premium” paid version. Moving on.

Used to be 5 Star, they got greedy

I’ve been using this app since long before it was well known. I recommended and shared this app with so many of my friends/family, and everyone who downloaded it - LOVED it. Sadly, someone got greedy, because it used to all be free. Free to look up a number of a missed call, and it would give you various stats and info about volumes blocked. Not any more, unless you pay them. It may block suspected scam and fraud for free, and sure that’s nice, but even nicer - when I could look up missed call numbers for free.
