Sprint does have this, but it is only available on the Bolt right now.  I didnt bother to add it though but at least they say it is coming for more devices "soon"...plus it cosrts a bit extra, $2.99..dunno if it is any better than AT&Ts implementation.  I also wonder if it will work if you are not connected to LTE.

Wouldn't you have to have simultaneous voice and data for these services to work? Or is Sprint checking the number on a network level before it rings your phone?

evidently not if sprint has this service working.  It is possible the appropriate info is being passed during call set up as the call rings (or maybe right before it) which is why i wonder if one needs to be on LTE for it to work.  If so, I am on eHRPD to much to be really valuable to me at this point in time.

I have been using the built in service/setting on my Galaxy S7.    Phone -> More -> Settings -> "Identify spam numbers".

Or you can get the Mr. Number app in Playstore, which works great detecting, and blocking spam calls.
