Nomorobo Stopped Working When Connect App Disappeared

When the Connect App & Voice2Go were discontinued last night, Nomorobo stopped working. 

I've deleted my Xfinity Voice number from the Nomorobo site and re-added it multiple times, and have deleted Nomorobo from Advanced Call Forwarding and re-added it multiple times, but when I test my line, Nomorobo fails.

When I call Xfinity Tech Support, they have no clue what I'm talking about, or how to help, though I was able to open a ticket with Advanced tech support, and I've sent an email to Nomorobo support.

Anyone else?

I have a similar problem, although I'm pretty sure Nomorobo stopped working well before Comcast turned off both those apps as 95% of the calls I've received in the past 3 months have been spam calls. 

I logged into my Nomorobo account today to test the status of my registered phone number, and what do you know, it's disabled.  I then tried to re-enable Advanced Call Forwarding in my Xfinity account and I'm no longer able to make changes with error message "Sorry!  We're unable to process this request. Please Try again".  Called Support and they have zero clue but instead tell me to use *60 to block each call after I receive it.  I challenge support and ask him if *60 has a limit of 25 numbers and after some fumbling around, he admits to the limit.   Twenty-five blocked numbers isn't enough to last a month!

At least you're able to access Advanced Call Forwarding; which Support eventually concedes to saying that there's a known issue with accessing Advanced Call Forwarding that will be resolved in 24-48 hours and that he'll call be back to confirm it's working.  

Verified callers doesn't seem to be working either and I suspect that blocking Nomorobo is leading towards selling an addon that will basically peform the same function but for a monthly price.   

Take for example this call I received today, the first call was at 12:59PM from [V]Anonymous, duration 0s.  The same number calls back (time stamp is still 12:59PM) but the Caller ID now says [V]JONI JEN, duration 0s.  

Same thing yesterday, first call from Caller ID [V]Anonymous, duration 0s and blocked because I had Anonymous caller blocking enabled.  Second call immediately after with the Caller ID of KAISER PERMANEN, not verified, I answered it and it was a pre-recorded voice telling me that I owed the IRS money.  

How is a caller "Verified" if spammers can have two separate Caller IDs with the same phone number?

Hey, @5hl , sorry to hear you're having so many issues with spoofed spammers.  I've run into the "Sorry!" error once myself, but they were able to get it resolved quickly.

As far as the [V], I had an unusually aggressive robocaller yesterday, calling me 60+ times between 1:23 am and 2:12 pm (!), and 2 of the calls showed the [V}, while the others didn't - go figure.  It's a new system, so I'm giving them a chance to work out the kinks, but, you're right, that doesn't make much sense.

Keep me posted on your troubles if you don't mind, I'm curious if you'll get things smoothed out soon, and good luck!

UPDATE:  It appears Nomorobo is active and blocking robocalls, but the test call from nomorobo.com still fails.  Two robocallers were blocked after I opened my ticket with Xfinity advanced tech support, and when they called me at home, I made them aware.  They said they would still follow through until a resolution with the failing test calls is found.  🤞

Nomorobo support wasn't nearly as helpful, their tech support sent an email saying "It's working, have a nice day" without any answer or help as to why the test calls are still failing, even while robocalls are being blocked.  I replied asking again, we'll see if they respond.  🙄

Ten days now, Advanced Call Forwarding still doesn't work, no call back from Support who said they would contact me in 24-48 hours to confirm it's working again.
