T-Mobile Unveils Scam Shield

Via webcast, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) CEO Mike Sievert unveiled the company´s latest Un-carrier move, a comprehensive set of protections against a pervasive problem affecting everyone with a phone: scams and robocalls, the company said.

The move, called Scam Shield, is the company´s response to a rising tide of scammers preying on Americans at their most vulnerable — a problem that´s only grown more severe in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Like all Un-carrier moves, Scam Shield started by listening to customers. And they´ve had it. Scams and robocalls are the #1 complaint to the FCC. And also like all Un-carrier moves, Scam Shield is designed to change wireless for good and challenge Verizon and AT&T to take this problem seriously, especially now.

T-Mobile US is America´s supercharged Un-carrier, delivering an advanced 4G LTE and transformative nationwide 5G network that will offer reliable connectivity for all. T-Mobile´s customers benefit from its unmatched combination of value and quality, unwavering obsession with offering them the best possible service experience and undisputable drive for disruption that creates competition and innovation in wireless and beyond. Based in Bellevue, Wash., T-Mobile provides services through its subsidiaries and operates its flagship brands, T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile and Sprint.
