Some Very Serious Problems
Downloaded to my wife’s iPhone 5C and used it to call my iPhone 4S, both running current IOS. When I called my wife’s number her phone rang normally and showed the identity screen of my calling. After a few rings I answered and basically the app had no effect at all on the call proceeding normally. Figured I would try it again. This time the called phone (the 4S) rang one time and briefly showed the caller screen and then hung up the phone call. Voice Mail was never reached. So I Then reversed the procedure and used my iPhone 4S to call my wife’s iPhone 5C. This time the app did work and the call did not ring on the 5C nor was it shown on the caller ID screen. So it apparently will not work if used to call a iPhone 4S. Not good at all unless you know what model iPhone you are calling. This also explain the discrepancies in the reviews here. There is also one other caveat. In the Recent Calls screen on the iPhone 5C it actually shows that you were called by “Slydial.” In the Recent Calls screen on the 4S (which did not work) it shows the phone number of the Slydial server and I don’t think that is too great either. If you are using the app with anything approaching an important reason to maintain the secrecy of you having called it is best to trash this app and not to use it.
The app has worked great for me, I got it about two weeks ago, and had seen the mix of good and bad reviews, and figured I would take a gamble. I have not used it much, but in each case it has put me straight through to the persons voicemail, and I could leave a message acting like I am sorry I didn't reach you today, but why don't I leave a message,.....
JUST DOESN'T WORK
I've tried to use this app with the same results. I continually get the message that the line is busy. Every time I call every number? Then you only get three free calls. Fortunately busy numbers don't count but a lot of good it does when the app doesn't work. It's great for those that say it works but it sure doesn't work for everyone. So glad I didn't pay for this app because it's a big disappointment. Guess I'm back to calling on those occasions. Maybe someone else will put out an app that works like it claims.
