T-Mobile's spam call blocking is coming to MetroPCS

Scam ID

Back in March, T-Mobile introduced Scam ID and Scam Block, two features that help users avoid annoying robocalls, and now it’s bringing the service to MetroPCS. Starting tomorrow, all MetroPCS users will automatically get Scam ID, the feature that displays a “scam likely” tag above the caller ID when a scammer is spotted.

Users will also have access to Scam Block, which keeps those calls from reaching your phone entirely, although you will have to activate that on your own. If you’d like to activate Scam Block, you can dial #ONB# (#662#) on your phone. You can check if it’s active by dialing #STS# (#787#) and turn it off using #OFB# (#632#).

Both Scam ID and Scam Block are free for all MetroPCS users.
