RingPlus Members Get New Universal Blacklist Feature for Free

ringplus-robocalls
For many, robot calls are an annoying problem. This is why there are several people who just let unknown calls go to voicemail since they don't want to deal with solicitation calls. To take care of this concern, RingPlus launched its new Universal Blacklist feature that aims to put a stop to Robocalls.

In less than five days, RingPlus IT CTO, Evan McGee, was able to develop and launch the feature. The service was designed to get rid of Robocalls, including illegal calls from numbers listed on the FCC's Unwanted Calls list, phone surveys, and any unwanted legal calls from telemarketers. It can also include phone numbers of those you don't want to hear from. RingPlus Members can take advantage of this new feature for free. They can also choose to turn it on or off whenever they like. They can even block all "anonymous" calls by flipping on a switch on their accounts.

RingPlus protects its Members against Robocalls. It does so by cross-checking any incoming calls against the FCC list. If a number can be found on the list, it doesn't reach the RingPlus Member's phone.

RingPlus Universal Blacklist service launched last Sept. 23, 2016. By default, it is automatically switched on for all new Members. Members who were able to join RingPlus prior to the service's launch of date may have to switch on the feature online.

The feature is part of RingPlus technology, which has already been implemented by the Sprint MVNO. According to RingPlus, they are open to share the technology with other MVNOs. The MVNOs operating under Sprint will be able to implement the technology in just a few days. However, other carriers could get the technology implemented in a few weeks' time. By sharing the technology, RingPlus shows that there is an initiative to put a stop on these problematic and annoying Robocalls. In doing so, they could even fix the concern throughout the country by the middle of next month. Randall Stephenson, AT&T's CEO, has been named as the chairperson for "Robocall Strike Force" for its subscribers.

  1. Hope it works well. RP deserves kudos, not snark for this.

    Don't throw them in the trash, please?

  2. I've gotten more robocalls in the last few days than I had gotten in the last few months combined. I'm afraid that RP has a few bugs to work out before it functions like described. Like most things at RP, sound familiar? This management group is like a group of grade schoolers trying to do an adults job!

    1. So you are saying turning the feature on caused more telemarketers to call? That's what is called a correlation/coincidence, not conclusive proof that the feature is not working.

  3. Nice! Just set it up, and added a bunch of numbers that keep calling me.

  4. Maybe they can forward all the robocalls to the moderators phones let them take turns answering these calls.
    Perhaps they can moderate telemarketers better than they can moderate a company website. Those telemarketers keep telling me I have won a cruise but they need my SS#, 2 credit cards with expiration date and my mothers maiden name. LOL Let the worthless moderators monitor the calls.

    1. we are still getting robo calls to lower our credit card rates so its not working but dont give any xtra jobs to those helpers on the website because they are already whining that their job is stressful and they are being overworked

  5. Article does not mention that if you happen to answer a robo/telemarketing call you can hit **0 during the call and it gets added to your block list automatically. Nice, I stopped calls from the biggest liars/scammers of all, a regional politican's campaign call center. It works!

    I think they should redirect robocalls to listen to ringplus ads.

  6. My moto e has a white list feature. Too bad many phones do not do this. However, an app can easily be installed but I have not figured out which is a good one.

  7. Is R+ still in operation, what a surprise. Have they fixed the latency issue or did they just give up and are now trying to fix the telemarketing call complaints?

    1. The latency is still there. It doesn't bother some people, myself included, but it is noticeable.

    2. Got in on their recent free Mad plan offer. Loving it.

    3. I also decided to stick with RingPlus after the TOS flak, now been on my free plan for a few days under 11 months now.

      I also have firsthand experience that their call fliters work; I blacklisted a number several months ago that would ring once or maybe twice before hanging up and would disconnect if I answered.

  8. This doesn't work. My R+ line gets more robocalls than all my other lines combined from work, home, cell. It all started when I ported my number to R+.

  9. Can they blacklist political calls?

    1. Not automatically, but you can add any number to the blocked calls list.
