Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How do I enter a number manually?
A: Android 2.x: choose the manual entry option from the menu on the main screen. Android 4.x: press the PHONE icon in the Action Bar on the app’s main screen. IMAGE: http://i.imgur.com/dMZTZ.png
Q: How do I get the call list in the app to update?
A: Each time the app launches, it pulls the latest applicable numbers from your call log. If you have a phone with lots of RAM, it will update less frequently. To make sure it is always updated, exit the app by using your phones BACK button. This will kill the app each time, and when you use it next time it will launch fresh and update your numbers. (in newer versions of the app, the refresh button at the top will usually do the job!)
Q: How do I unblock a number that I blocked with the app?
A: Open your contacts list, scroll to the bottom and you will find all the numbers you blocked with the app listed with the prefix zzBlocked. Just find the number you’d like to unblock and delete the contact that goes with it. Storing blocked numbers this way allows them to be blocked at the system level, which is the most consistent way to catch them. If you don’t see the zzBlocked contacts listed, press your menu key and make sure you are viewing “All contacts”.
Q: Only outgoing numbers are shown on the app’s main screen..
A: If you have a Verizon phone, you most likely have City ID installed. This software hijacks your call log and it must be disabled in order for Reverse Lookup to work properly. See our website for info.
Q: I’m getting results that are showing the wrong phone carrier.
A: If a number gets ported to another carrier, it usually remains listed as being serviced by the original carrier.
