T-Mobile is trying to help its subscribers dodge more spammy calls.
The carrier is going to begin warning subscribers when an incoming phone call appears to be from a scammer. If a scam call is detected, the caller ID will display as “Scam Likely,” giving subscribers a heads up before they answer or the chance to just ignore it outright.
T-Mobile will also let subscribers block all suspected scam calls so those calls never reach their phones in the first place. But subscribers will have to actively opt in to the blocking service, as there’s a chance the carrier could accidentally filter out legitimate numbers.
