    will ATT call protect come to prepaid?

    On post paid line some friends have the ATT call protect enabled, and they get a text like this

    AT&T Free Msg: AT&T Mobile Security & Call Protect is now activated. Set up your preferences in the apps to prevent scammers, identity theft, and more. Download both apps now or opt out: att.com/securitycallprotect


    Then all spam calls are marked / identified as such.

    Any idea if this feature will come to prepaid?

    I hope it does.

    My T-mobile legacy prepaid plan already has a similar feature enabled. In my dumb phone I use there it shows for called ID something like "Scam Likely". Nice.

    I signed up for AT&T prepaid on Saturday, and I got that text before I left the store. Guess I will check it out.

    The phone must have HD Voice to use Call Protect.

    Got the text announcing the feature and also my first call labeled "Spam Risk" on my at&t prepaid phone. Glad to see this working.

    I was really glad to see this feature added recently. The lack of this feature was one of my few complaints about ATTPP.

    Noticed that it's "powered by Hiya." Wonder how/if the Basic is any different from using the regular Hiya app. Never figured out the difference between Hiya and Mr Number.

    We also have a brand new ATT prepaid line and noticed that att protect is available. If you don’t have it, please go to www.paygonline.com to enable it. It is under att mobile security and call protect.
