How Talk Shield works

Someone tries to call you

Talk Shield intercepts and blocks any robots

If it's a person, your phone rings and Talk Shield tells you who it is

Listen to who's calling and choose to accept or block the call

You can easily add the number to your Star or Block List

Star and Block Lists

Add up to 1,000 numbers across your Star and Block Lists easily, while on a call, after the call has ended, or online. Callers on your Star List, such as your friends and family, will get straight through every time. Numbers you block will never bother you again. Simple.
