Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
First concerning customer satisfaction: Look at any of the product reviews here on Amazom, and you will find a reply from Kevin (presumably their US representative) offering a solution and inviting (begging) people who are having problems to call him. I had no need to do so, but from the comments of those who did, it seems they all came away impressed with the personal and individualized service they got from Kevin. So, major Kudos here.
Second, perhaps because I have the newest model, the 202, (and because I read the instructions) I had almost none of the problems with installation and programming that others have mentioned. My only issue was that the beep codes to program the 202 conflicted with the star codes on my phone system (a Panasonic DECT 6.0 cordless), but the instructions told me how to solve the issue. Fortunately, the CID signal in my area was strong enough that I could also set up the system in serial configuration.
Third, before you buy this product you must understand its essential limitations, some of which I think they can fix easily now, and others which I hope they fix before they come out with the next version of their product.
First the easy stuff: It is so emotionally satisfying, a real catharsis, to push the big red button and send the telemarketer into oblivion (they clearly get this), but marking the button "block now" is more than just "British reserve" it borders on the insipid. "Block now" just does not capture the furor of having 15 or more telemarketers call you every day for years. I have already covered over my Red Button with an adhesive label that reads: "DIE, DIE, DIE" and I have commissioned my young son to draw a series of even more expressive labels for me. This is not a trivial concern, I think you could triple your US sales by removing "block now" lettering from your red button and substituting a sheet of 8 adhesive labels, four with popular themes, perhaps: DIE, a mushroom cloud, a skull and crossbones, the face from Edvard Munch's Scream, and four blank ones to allow the purchaser to express their anger more individuality.
Second, 1000 blocked numbers is great, and far better that your competitors, but my question for you is, with flash memory so cheap, why just 1000, and not 100,000? (Indeed, where did you even find a memory card so small?) I imagine telemarketers use a least 20 different numbers, and there must be more than 50 telemarketing operations, so that could become a problem.
Third, I am fortunate to be able to set up my system in series and not parallel, but you could solve this by adding a alpha numeric key pad to your unit to allow it to be programmed directly without having to use the very cumbersome and annoying beeps codes, or even worse having to change the configuration of the unit to program it if it is set up in parallel configuration.
Fourth, for many people blocking an entire area code, all anonymous calls, or all international calls is not a viable option. By doing so you might block your banks fraud center in Minot ND (or God knows where), or cut yourself off from tech support, or friends, customers and family which have a legitimate reason for blocking their numbers. So, I just let any unrecognized number go to my answering machine unanswered, and answer personally only those numbers I recognize. But that is not ideal. What would be ideal is if they incorporated their blocker into an answering machine. If a good call comes in push a button to add it to your "white list," if you want to block a number, push the red button and add it to your "black list," if you are unsure, let the call go to the answering machine, initially set on audible mode to screen the call and pick it up if necessary. After several months set the answering machine to quiet mode - takes message, but does not ring or play the message audibly, but you can play it back later if you wish.
Finally, I personally like the fact that the telemarketer cannot tell that you have blocked him. Viscerally I like that confusion and doubt that you must be engendering in their minds, but I am also sure many in the American market would like some other options. Perhaps the blocked person could hear, maniacal laughter, Justin Bieber's greatest hits, or perhaps the French Knight from Monty Python saying: "I fart in your general direction."
Very lastly, please save your poor Kevin some grief and make a better You Tube video covering all the installation issues, glitches and workarounds. Your current video just does not cut it.
I hope you guys make a fortune and succeed beyond your wildest dreams.
Some reviews say they have had problems with it, but that was the old version. This version is guaranteed to work on all American systems as well as British ones CPR say. We have Verizon FIOS and it worked perfectly right out of the box and flawlessly.
It comes packaged in a box like a cell/mobile phone does. Nice packaging and the manual is a delight! The manual is nice and simply explained, with lots of clear color pictures and easy-to-understand text. I am so used to tiny gray line illustrations on cheap paper with instructions badly translated from other languages, that this was a most welcome change. Even the text is quite large, so those with limited eyesight should be able to read it. All of the manuals can be read and/or downloaded for free at:
www dot cprcallblocker dot com/User-Guide.html
If you are just buying a call blocker now, you should download the manual for version v.202 as this is the model currently being supplied.
Despite what you might read in some of the reviews and questions, there are some things that are not made clear and others things that have been improved and so have changed now:
1. It has a memory for 1200 numbers, but 200 of these are permanently set, so you can only store 1000 yourself.
2. You can only block numbers, NOT names like "Generic Credit Card Services".
3. You do not have to block a complete 10-digit number, you can block any length of numbers, such as an area code like "xxx", or a smaller area like "xxxx" or even a much larger area (or service) like all numbers that begin with "9" for example, by just blocking only the first digit "9".
4. You can just as easily unblock anything.
5. Despite what the manual and reviews say, mine (V.202) emits two short beeps when there is a problem, such as you have already blocked that number, or you have tried to enter an incorrect command code.
6. Be careful blocking certain services like calls without an ID - My friends and family from the UK could not get through to me in America, because I tried blocking calls without caller ID, Approximately 60% of the time it was blocking calls from the UK now. Turning that off again allowed all of the calls to come through again - I do NOT think this is a problem with the CPR call blocker, but is a problem with how the telephone companies are using different methods of routing calls overseas? As one person uses the same phone in their house and yet sometimes it comes through on our Panasonic phone with their name and number, while at other times it comes though as only "out of area" because it has not got a caller ID.
7. Block your own phone number! Some telemarketers spoof your own number to call you with, knowing it is unlikely to be blocked - They caught us out with this sneaky trick, but only once!
8. While you are at it, block all the non-existent area codes as well. Most people know that "555" is used on TV and movies because it does not really exist, but block the other ones as well. I blocked all the missing area codes from a list of all existing area codes (use a list on a website like allareacodes dot com, or a similar service).
9. I can fill up the possible 1000 numbers in under 12 months - 12 telemarketing calls per day is quite common here, and they all usually have different numbers. Blocking services are getting so good that the telemarketers are having to change their numbers at least once a week - So apart from a small handful of numbers, you only need block a number for a week here at the moment. Meaning that you can go back and delete all the older numbers you blocked a year or so ago to free up space for the new numbers - With only a few of them coming back to haunt you...
10. Some people do not like that the phone rings once before the call blocker stops the call. This is how phone systems are designed as the caller ID code is actually sent between the first and second rings - So the CPR cannot block that first ring as the caller ID has not been sent yet! HOWEVER - There is a workaround...A lot of phones now have an option to "suppress the first ring" or it will be called something similar. All this does is the phone will not actually make any sound for the first ring it receives. This gives the CPR time to get the caller ID and cut the call off before the phone would actually ring on the second ring. Now the CPR will cut blocked calls off without the phone making any noise at all, that is how I have ours set up.
I know CPR read reviews and answer questions - Wonderful that they are pretty responsive unlike many companies. So I would like to make a feature request...Could the software be changed to give the option of storing the numbers to be let through, instead of storing the numbers to be blocked? The idea then would be that ALL calls would be blocked automatically, unless you had programed in their number - Whitelisting, instead of blacklisting numbers.
