Now reporting to BSNL varanasi has initiated another issue. They have their own format to report (Message, Sender, Date, Time in 24hours). They are not accepting the sms sent inTRAI's format and even they don't acknowledge the issue immediately. It seems BSNL has its own regulation beyond TRAI. Don't kown what TRAI is doing then. Requesting to add time stamp feature too.
This is dumb even after 4 versions down the app still fails to work for SMS spam. Its time TRAI had some better android developers than the idiots working on this. And dont ask to try new version as it does not work right from the beginning.
Sms not showing in the app to report spam. I use signal messaging app for Android. Also, spam complaints are closed as Not Promotional in nature. So technically one can legally send any number is spam messages as long as they are not commercial in nature. 😊
Jan 2018 update - The app works again as expected. However, the whole DND workflow defined by TRAI is broken. Idea keeps closing these complaints with the excuse that "since there is no error established at our end. You may call 198 and select option of APPEAL". And selecting appeal option only creates a new DND request which is again closed with the same excuse. Dec 2017 update - app doesn't create the complaint sms anymore. It shows the message about dual SIM and then nothing. Nov 2017 update - Seems to work as expected with the latest update. Reported a promotional SMS and call without issues.
Total useless app like the department itself. Need regular SMS to send info to get robotic reply as, "can't resolve....". Sleepy team can't act forget strict action against SMS/call spams.
Always crashed. Never could get to home screen except the first time. After every updates. It's not an app, it's a joke Tried it after i got a response from them. and it works now. Not checked the functionality yet, but it does start and show correct data.
