Scam calls no more

Since joining T-Mobile (and having them pay off our Google Pixels) I appreciate the Scam ID feature on incoming calls. Instead of a caller ID, the screen lights up red with Scam Likely as the name.

I appreciate the notification that it’s a scam but I wish I could have the calls blocked automatically. Today, I learned that’s possible with the aptly named Scam Block feature.

T-Mobile offers more information about these features.

To enable Scam ID or Scam Block and check their statuses:

#ONI# (#664#) – Enable Scam ID
#ONB# (#662#) – Enable Scam Block
#OFB# (#632#) – Disable Scam Block
#STS# (#787#) – Check Scam Block enabled status

I’ve turned on Scam Block since most of my calls are scammers offering my holidays away, free cruises and hotels. So many hotels. I’m looking forward to my phone no longer ringing everyday with scam calls.
