T-Mobile announced that it was launching two features intended to help its users stay safe from scammers. These two features were known as Scam ID and Scam Block. Initially, T-Mobile offered these features exclusively to its T-Mobile One customers as they promised that it would roll out by April 5th.
Today, T-Mobile has revealed that they are extending availability of these two features to its MetroPCS customers. According to TMONews, T-Mobile will be rolling out Scam ID and Scam Block to its MetroPCS customers starting July 25th. The release reveals that the two features will automatically be switched on for all customers under MetroPCS on that date.
But in case you wanted to verify whether or not Scam Block is already enabled on your device, you can dial #STS# (#787#). In the event that you wish to disable this new security feature, you can do so by dialing #OFB# (#632#). On the contrary, you can switch it back on anytime you like by dialing #ONB# (#662#).
Meanwhile, the other feature, Scam ID, works by giving you a warning when you are about to receive a phone call by a number suspected to be a spammer. When this happens, you will see a "Scam Likely" alert on your phone. You can then enable Scam Block (if it hasn't been enabled yet) to never see those phone calls on your device ever again. T-Mobile's network will prevent such callers from getting through to your phone.
