You have to download the app Sprint Premium caller ID and for iOS goto settings --> phone -->call blocking & identification and turn it on.

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.

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.
