T-Mobile today announced that it has completed implementing the STIR/SHAKEN phone number verification technology with all major US network providers. This allows T-Mobile to authenticate that an incoming call is coming from the actual phone number displayed in Caller ID. This helps fight phone number spoofing, a common tactic used by scammers and illicit robocalls to evade identification and enforcement. The FCC has mandated that all network providers in the US implement STIR/SHAKEN on their modern (IP-based) voice networks by June 2021.

Patiently Awaiting

I appreciate T-Mobile’s efforts combating robocalls. However, I’ve seen only a slight improvement versus what ai used to get beforehand. PLEASE get a new-and-improved version going to thwart these annoying pests who waste our most valuable commodity: time.
