Protecting You From Unwanted Calls
AT&T is providing AT&T Phone Call Protect to phone customers to alert users if a call is suspected spam and block unwanted calls.
Finally, you’ve sat the entire family down to enjoy a nice dinner when the phone rings. Wanting to make sure you don’t miss someone important you answer only to hear that “you’ve just won a cruise,” or “you can be the proud owner of a new vacuum.”
It’s happened to all of us. In fact, U.S. consumers received an average 2.4 million robocalls per month in 2016! 1
Luckily, we have a few features to help protect you from unwanted calls.
Through AT&T Call Protect our wireless customers have been able to detect and block unwanted calls for nearly a year, and starting today the same great protection is available to AT&T Phone customers while at home with AT&T Phone Call Protect.2 This free service will also alert you if a call is suspected spam and allows you to unblock numbers you specify.
AT&T Phone customers can also block unwanted calls from up to 100 numbers by pressing *613 after their most recent unwanted incoming call. You can set-up and edit a call block list online through your myAT&T account.

Since 2016, we have blocked over 2.8 billion robocalls through a combination of AT&T Call Protect and our analytics-based blocking program. Our analytics-based program detects illegal robocallers through network data analysis and stops the call.
It’s a priority for us to give you more control over unwanted calls and security threats. Together, we can say goodbye to unwanted calls (and dinner interruptions!).
