CONWAY and LITTLE ROCK, Ark., July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PrivacyStar and Alltel Wireless today announce PrivacyStar for Alltel Wireless Android customers. Users of the privacy application can now easily block unwanted calls and texts as well as easily report telemarketer and debt collector violations directly to the Federal Trade Commission. Other features include SmartBlock, Do Not Disturb, Caller Lookup and more. The PrivacyStar feature-packed application provides Alltel Wireless customers with the ability to enjoy privacy, protection and preference on their mobile phone.
"With more and more people abandoning landlines for the sole use of mobile phones, people are living a very mobile life and finding that privacy options are a necessity," said Jeff Stalnaker, CEO of PrivacyStar. "We are proud that two Arkansas high-tech companies are coming together to offer Alltel Wireless customers a powerful set of privacy features that will give customers the capability to have complete control of their mobile phone."
PrivacyStar offers a feature-rich application in privacy, protection and preference that provides consumers with complete control of their mobile phone. Its versatile call blocking feature blocks unwanted calls and text messages from individual, private and unknown numbers. Blocked numbers can be managed directly from the user's phone, enabling them to easily monitor all activity on their account as well as block and unblock callers. A SmartBlock feature uses crowdsourcing for the top 25 blocked numbers and automatically blocks them for all PrivacyStar users.
PrivacyStar's complaint filing feature allows users to report potential Do Not Call Registry and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act violations directly from their phones, making it easy to file complaints with the Federal Trade Commission. Additionally, the Do Not Disturb provides consumers with the ability to send customized text messages such as "I'm driving" or "in a meeting" to callers when unavailable. With PrivacyStar's Caller Lookup function, identify unknown callers by name and take appropriate action, such as adding to the contacts list or Privacy List.
