Take action against T-Mobile: T-Mobile’s Big Uncarrier Move is All About Destroying Spam Calls

From Droid Life:

T-Mobile has been hyping its next Uncarrier announcement for a few weeks now, and this morning, the details were made public. The entirety of this Uncarrier move has to do with spam and robocalls. Obviously, they suck, so T-Mobile is ready to squash them on its network and help protect its customers.

Scam Shield is a combination of multiple things, not just for T-Mobile customers, but Sprint and Metro customers, too. Here’s what the list includes.

As mentioned above, there is a new Scam Shield app for iOS and Android devices, available starting on July 24. However, to turn on Scam Block right now, T-Mobile postpaid and Metro customers can, “simply dial #662# to tell T-Mobile’s network to stop robocalls before they ever reach your phone.”

Not highlighted above, Scam Shield has a Premium tier, available for $4/month. Scam Shield Premium gives customers more control, allowing you to send entire categories of unwanted robocalls directly to voicemail, such as telemarketers. You can create ‘always block’ lists and also get voicemail-to-text for at-a-glance access to your voicemails. T-Mobile says Scam Shield Premium is included at no extra charge for customers with Magenta Plus, but $4/month for everyone else.
