Dear tellows friends,
as you already know, the tellows database contains over 1,8 millions of telephone numbers which are reported by our users. However, not only our users can benefit from this database but also companies and organisations! Like we explained on our API page, we are always happy about new collaborations and partnerships by offering access to our database. We are really glad to inform you about our latest collaboration with a volontaire organisation. The name of the organisation is “Service Volontaire International (SVI)” and they use our Scorelist API in a FreePBX system in order to block unwanted calls. By that they are free from any spam or fraud-call and can concentrate even more on doing something good.
But let us introduce you the organization a little bit further..
Today we would like to talk about the new features of our Android app!
Since 2014, the year we launched it, our app has grown: we have moved to over 450,000 downloads, more than 6,400 evaluations and 200,000 subscribers. Every day we work hard to improve it and your advice and feedbacks have been fundamental.
Functionality at a glance
Immediately identify who is calling you:
We have improved Caller ID, so that the spam numbers are immediately detected through the tellows app; the tellows score will be always shown on the screen of our mobile phone and, in addition to the rating, you will also be able to find out the name of the caller, the type of call and from which location it phones. You will have all the information you need, so you can decide whether or not to answer calls!
Find any number and info on callers:
With over 180.000 reviewsper day, you can find out who is bothering you in no time. Thanks to your reports, our database is constantly updated and over time it has become a big world family. New countries and new languages are available in the application, no scammers or call centers around the globe will have a chance!
Evaluate and comment on phone numbers:
Commenting and evaluating is now easier and more immediate, in order that you can help us in our mission against telephone scams; just connect to your account and enter in the tellows world from all devices in a simple and free way. It is not required to leave a comment anymore when rating a number which makes it faster to evaluate unknown numbers. Your negative rated numbers are also on your personalized blacklist and can be blocked with premium.
Call barring and Blacklist customized with Premium:
In the Premium version, all dangerous numbers rated by you, are saved on your phone and can be blocked even in offline mode. All is possible thanks to the black list stored and updated locally and also use it without any advertising.
We could not be more proud of our product, but without your support and the trust that you give us every day, we would not have made the giant steps we have taken so far: you, our community tellows, are the beating heart of our app!
We have good news! A new tellowsiPhone version for “tellows Caller ID & Blocker” is available in the App store: 1.4.0! The app works for all devices using iOS 10 or higher.
Version 1.4.0 comes with an improved protection from unwanted phone calls, thanks to some new features. You have the ability to log in to your own tellows account and easily access it from multiple devices. You can also edit your account settings and posted comments, when you log in to tellows in the web browser.
Additionally, you can now create your personal blacklist and add unwanted numbers that are not yet rated or don’t appear in the blacklist. If you rate a number negatively, it will be added to your personal blacklist and will be blocked the next time you receive a call. Even if the overall rating assigned by other tellows users of the phone number is different, it will still be blocked. You must be logged in to use this feature and synchronize your personal blacklist with your device. You can use your one personal blacklist across all devices and tellows products. Continue reading →
we are happy to announce a partnership with the app developer Sergey Smirnov. He developed the iPhone app #SCB • Caller ID & Blocker to identify and block unwanted calls. Additionally you can put numbers on a personal black- or whitelist. The app also allows you to filter and block incoming SMS messages.
The #SCB app uses the tellows database to identify unknown numbers. Therefore spam numbers like robocalls, telemarketers and advertising can be identified before the user picks up the phone and saves you lots of time. If you have been bothered by a number that has not been reported, you can add it to your blacklist and report it to warn others about this number as well.
Watch out, Apple users: Today, we introduce you to our new app!

With the release of iOS 10, it is finally possible to block calls! And we don’t want to withhold this feature from you any longer. We developed a new app that protects you even better from unwanted calls. Annoying spam calls that cost you time and nerves are now history.
To offer you the best protection ever, we equipped the tellows app with a special feature. Incoming calls can be identified with the tellows Caller ID & Block app, instantly. And to make sure you don’t even get disturbed by those calls, you can now block all spam calls.
