Lookup+ for iPhone is an app designed by PrivacyStar that provides Directory Assistance, FTC complaint filing, and Reverse Number Lookup.
We know that there is nothing enjoyable about getting a call or text from a number you don’t recognize, so here is a step by step guide on how to use Lookup+ for iPhone.
Normally- unless a caller leaves a message, which often doesn’t happen- you would be left to either scour the internet for answers, or forever not know why the caller was trying to reach you. Consumers may soon have more options for protecting their smartphones from unwanted robocalls.
Aaron Foss, the creator of Nomorobo, plans to roll out an app for iPhones and Androids in the coming months. Click here to ask the top phone companies to offer free, effective robocall blockers to everyone! Consumer Reports tested several home phone call –blocking tools, including Nomorobo, this summer – click here to see the results.
Foss’s Nomorobo was the co-winner of the Federal Trade Commission’s Robocall Challenge in 2013, which asked participants to devise an effective tool to stop unwanted robocalls. Another analyst told Bloomberg that in 2011 4.5 billion spam text messages were pushed out to cell phone owners, so you can imagine by now that number is even higher. And, don't forget about clingy exes who keep calling, incessantly harassing debt collectors or weirdos from Craigslist who won’t stop texting you about the laptop you sold weeks ago. For now, iOS doesn't support call and text blocking, but blocking is coming this fall with iOS 7.
As for Android users, there are a few good free apps that you can immediately install on your smartphone to help.
This app offers real-time caller ID, reverse call look-up, unlimited call and text blocking and the ability to report abusive callers to the Federal Trade Commission. Its call and text blocking features let you block specific numbers, entire area codes or all private and unknown numbers. The reverse call look-up feature is slick and lets you scan your call log and look up any number on it.


The free version of the app comes with ads and only gives you real-time caller IDs and reverse call lookups for one week. Unlike Privacy Star, this app doesn’t completely highjack your regular Android call-answer screen. You can go into the app, see your call log and mark calls as spam, block numbers or look them up. You can also manage your block list by specifying which numbers you always want to hang up on, send to voicemail or make exceptions for—meaning you could block every call from your hometown area code except ones coming from your mom.
For anybody passing by who uses blackberry and feel out in the cold (as far as call blocking and apps go), I have a tip for you - Turn on your phones parental controls under settings. Lookup+ will display the name of the caller’s mobile, landline, or business phone number and then allow you to call, text, add to your contact list or, if it ends up being a telemarketer or debt collector making an unsolicited call,  you can file a complaint against the number directly to the FTC. A few mobile carriers also hide their customers’ name, however the majority provide for public record.
Foss has offered the free call-blocking service Nomorobo to consumers with Internet-based home phone service since 2013, and claims to have blocked over 59 million unwanted calls for his 360,000 users. Number, Call Control, and PrivacyStar in an already-crowded market for robocall-blocking smartphone apps. Notably, over 800 people submitted proposals – showing that there’s no shortage of great ideas to solve the robocall problem. Over 222 million phone numbers are on the national Do Not Call Registry, and last year, the FTC alone fielded over 3.5 million complaints from consumers about unwanted calls.
Most wireless carriers will let you block at least a few numbers for free, so check with your carrier. PrivacyStar automatically hangs up or delivers a busy signal to blocked callers, and texts from blocked numbers never arrive on your phone.
When I tested it, the app was able to identify land lines well but less than half of the mobile numbers I tried. It just adds a small box that lists the caller’s name and when he or she last called you to it.


You can block any number from your contacts list, call log or message log, as well as add numbers manually.
Not finding any, I was going to take a little time this morning to email Techlicious to ask for help on this. Blacklist Plus is also free (and has a Pro version that’s on sale through this week). The app will use a cloud-based blacklist built with spam numbers submitted by consumers, federal agencies like the IRS and the FCC, and from companies like Twilio. We think the phone companies should follow the lead of these developers and offer advanced robocall-blocking tools to all of their customers, for free.
You'll also want to find out how long the block remains in place because some carriers expire blocks.
Number and can identify not only home and business landlines, but more than half the mobile numbers I tried. Number figures out what company it is, the app will show you more information about the company, such as any offers it might have running, its location and a link to the website. However, Blacklist Plus, like Calls Blacklist, does not truly block calls—it just sends them to voicemail. Very useful for those who use their blackberry’s privately yet find all the market apps totally useless. There’s also a history button you can tap to see how many times the number has called you.
The only minor caveat is you only get 20 reverse call look-ups for free—after that Mr. You can also turn notifications off, so you don't have to be notified every time a call is blocked.
