Phone numbers with dots or &bull strings, such as (123) ··· - ····

Craigslist is starting to block phone numbers using dots (and/or &bull strings) for some reasons...

You can find (and tap) the phone number either (1) in the header of the listing, (2) tapping the 'call/text' button, or (3) tapping the 'Show Original' button and tapping on the phone number with dots to reveal the phone number. (In the latter case, you will not be able to tap the phone number to call/text though.)

No (zero) results, Onavo installed.

Is Onavo installed? Onavo messes up Internet traffic. Delete it, remove your Onavo profile, and restart your phone.

Why do I get no (zero) results?

There are a few possible reasons for that.
  - Craigslist could be down for maintenance (usually happens late at night). Click this link: http://www.craigslist.org/ to see if that's the case
  - The category that you selected has no matching listings in it. Make sure the selected category matches your search
  - Use the "Reset" button in Settings to remove filters that might be precluding you from getting the results
  -If you are still getting zero results, go to General Settings / Reset and continue with Network Settings Reset

Posting crashes

Download the latest version of the app (App Store -> Updates). Remove and re-add your Craigslist account (Post -> Delete, then Post -> Add)

Please make sure you read and follow Craigslist rules describing posting, reposting, and posting too often. In particular, Craigslist will block all you subsequent posts that are "very similar" to your previously posted ad. Your account could be blocked if you would try to post more often than once every 48 hours. You can read more here

Can I run complex Craigslist searches (2004 not 2005 Honda, for example)?

Yes, you can. You can read more about complex and advanced searches at: http://www.craigslist.org/about/help/search

Why is my posting getting flagged?

Flagging is a community moderation effort taking place on the Craigslist side, and there is nothing the app can help you with in regards to your postings being flagged, unfortunately.

Please read Craigslist FAQ on flagging:

I have a general Craigslist question. Where do I find an answer?


What to do to start receiving new match Notifications?

First, run a search, for which you would like to be alerted when new listings matching your search criteria get posted to Craigslist. Tap the "3 lines (sandwich)" button. Continue with the "New Ad Notifier" button. Please make sure your Location Services are ON and you keep the app running in the background after you leave it.

Do Notifications count against my text messages?

No, Notifications are not SMS/text messages, and they have no impact on your text messaging limits. See also http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3576.

I created a Notifier, but haven't received any notifications yet. What's happening?

You can check if your Notifier has found new matches to your search by tapping the "notifiers" button from the app main page. The purple counter in the bottom right corner of each Notifier reports the number of sent notifications. Please also make sure your Location Services are ON and you keep the app running in the background after you leave it.
