T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) and Sprint (NYSE: S) have announced they´re delivering STIR/SHAKEN number-verification across networks, an important step in the industry´s ongoing fight against unwanted scam and spam calls, the company said.
The new anti-robocalling feature is currently rolling out to T-Mobile and Sprint customers and will give customers peace of mind that calls from the Sprint network to the T-Mobile network (and vice versa) are really coming from the number listed on their caller ID display and are not being spoofed.
T-Mobile was first to announce readiness for the FCC-recommended STIR/SHAKEN standards in November 2018 and first in the wireless industry to implement STIR/SHAKEN when it launched Caller Verified on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in January 2019.
As part of today´s news, T-Mobile also announced that Caller Verified is now operable across 23 smartphones, with more coming soon.
