Its a monthly subscription though. They have a bunch of features, I don't use it anymore though cuz I don't get as many blocked calls anymore. But it is bad *** and it works. Ps. This isn't a commercial.

I tried this app on my wife's phone because she has been getting calls that could use it. It simply does not work. It doesn't even register my name which she has as a contact in her phone. Good thing it is free, it would suck if it cost.

That is what i meant by asking how it works.
For example: does it fetch your whole phonebook to their server and then create registered entries? I see no other way, other than personally giving numbers-to-names to them, to create the DB in the first place.
Where in the hell-hole could it get a number-to-name information for sim cards sold without contract to random buyer, when even operator does not possess such information...
Have you even though about that?
Unless the way DB gets populated is known, and there is guarantee app does not fetch your whole phonebook, unless you do not care of course, i strongly discourage anyone from using it.
Because if it does fetch phonebook info, all who use it are giving hell-of-a-lot information about who's numbers is who's to some random private company, who then can simply sell it to spammers / interested parties etc.

I have the same problem as yours.
I am on 5.0.1 iPhone 4. Had to uninstall it to go out from safe mode.
I used to use it before upgrading to 5.0.1, i was on 4.3.3 and it was working like a charm, but not now.
Also sent an email to the developer to fix this issue telling him that i also have the following call related Apps installed:
Hope he finds a solution to this.
To whom who are asking how does this work, let me explain it in few lines.
Once you install the App it will upload the complete contact list found on your device to their servers without even asking your permission.
This way they collect as many phone numbers as possible in all different countries even for unregistered users.
When you use it you will notice a very funny names fetched while you receive a call like "Mom of Elias" and "George insurance" this is what I've got at least. (Depending on how other users saved some numbers in their contacts).
The more it's downloaded and used the more the database will grow up and expend. It is very popular in my country and it's very rare that you receive an unknown caller.
TC "True Caller" from the App Store does exactly the same but it will ask you the permission to upload your contacts before doing it. Also it has no real time (While ringing) fetching for names, it has a manual search for any number in any country.
Of course Whozcalling is much more usefull but unfortunately it's not working on my 5.0.1 device.
Can anyone confirm if it's causing the device to always go in "Safe mode" right after installing it?

Of course NOT!
Man this app is aweeeeeeeeeeesome!
Beats all in the market
And it's for free.
Now people only start attackin it that it's fake and bull$hit just cuz they're not payin or it!
WhozCalling is a really great app. And IS WORKING FINE.
Cydia is the problem not your goddamn phones nor downloaded app
