So is it actually called Sprint call screener or Sprint caller id? I have the caller id.

Caller ID.  I don't know why Sprint says it's Sprint Call Screener.  I have no such app installed, and there's nothing called that in the google play store.

Thanks, that's what I was trying to figure out. Weird.

I've tried enabling it but it just sits there and doesn't do anything. Well I stand corrected, deleted the app data and now it turned right on.

You deleted the Caller ID app?

How do I get rid of it- it keeps coming up every time I block a call.  And tells me that I must pay $2.99 extra per month for it!

I don't want it.  Help articles say don't answer phone if you don't know who it is.  Those who really need me will leave a message.  Since implementing that policy I have gotten far fewer spam/con artist calls on my voicemail.

So is there any way to get it to stop dinging me for that extra $2.99 every time I block a message or direct to voicmail audio???

Which raises another question--  how do these idiots drop messages directly into my voicemail without ever calling me first?  Makes it harder to eliminate and block.

They call you from 2 lines a fraction of a second apart in time.  The later call will immediately go to your voicemail since the first call is trying to connect to your phone to ring it.  Even with call waiting, 2 calls cannot ring your phone at the same time.  As soon as the voicemail answers one of the calls, they hang up the other call that is connecting to your phone.  This usually occurs before the call ever causes your phone to ring or shows up in your missed calls log. This also prevents most spam blockers from blocking the call since they usually operate when call is connected to your phone line.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.

    • You need to have Wi-Fi Calling enabled and also have made at least one phone call over Wi-Fi Calling prior to using the inflight Wi-Fi.
