T-mobile to offer Message and Call blocking

Remember the class action suit against T-mobile regarding unwanted messaging charges?  Well T-mobile has answered by creating a system to block messaging.  But why stop there? Lets take this all the way to calls too! While details from our sources are still a bit fuzzy, TmoNews can confirm this is all in the works. Now there seems to be multiple levels of this.  The general level will allow users to block SMS through a call to Customer Care, or in T-mobile stores.  This general phase will still let through system SMS, Voicemail notifications, and OTA updates. Neither the general, nor advanced phases will be able to block internet-based IM or E-mail, or Danger’s messaging services.  The more advanced version, which we haven’t confirmed yet, will allow users to block the following:

  • ALL E-mail
  • ALL IMs
  • Everything (Except free T-mobile SMS, Voicemail, and OTA updates)
