What's New in Version 2.4.3
This app is great in the variety of features and services it provides. However, it appears after recent updates, there have been a number of inconsistencies. For example, contact names (which are correct on my iPhone) have appeared in my Verizon contacts via this app under something completely different. Courtney became K in my contacts. It took several days before I noticed. Before I could edit the contact and change it myself, the Verizon contacts list performed autocorrect I suppose. It was baffling.
When it works..
It's a great app when it works but for whatever reason after awhile it will just stop forwarding calls and texts. If I uninstall it then reinstall it it will start working again. Have had to do this numerous times it's become unreliable and I have switched to forwarding my calls to google hangouts instead. I live in a remote area where signal is weak and have a metal roof and cannot get a signal inside at all so I need to forward calls over wifi. This app is great in theory just wish it was more reliable.
I can't even get past the "enter special pin" they are supposedly sending to complete my sign in. I tried their *advice* and deleted the app, reinstalled, then tried regular turn off, then a hard start, and even the suggestion of repeatedly asking for a new pin to be sent. NOTHING. I refuse to wipe my phone clean for an obvious app issue - especially because anyone with iOS 10 knows the nightmares we have been through and since it's running perfectly for me right now --- I am not going to jinx it! Great job on your product, Verizon. Keep up the good work...
