    The selection below reads like T Mobile is forbidden from allowing you to block numbers, like the collection agency that keeps calling me for Capitol One despite the fact that I have told them that it's illegal to call everyone with the same last name as the person you are looking for. It's really rather disconcerting when you consider tht I am actually a Capitol One customer and they ought to be able to see that I am not the person they are looking for. But I digress.

    I think it's BS. I find it difficult to believe that there is a law against call blocking. Anyone know for sure?

    Blocking Anonymous Callers

    When you use T-Mobile communications services to receive calls, the telephone number of the calling party is generally delivered to your mobile device, allowing you to identify the number (and the name you may have entered into your contacts) of a caller before answering. However, the FCC has mandated that carriers allow callers the ability to block their Caller ID information and thus place “anonymous” calls. T-Mobile is obligated to honor the privacy of the caller in these circumstances. Of course, you may choose not to accept such calls. But we cannot block the call or override the privacy choice of the caller.
