Consumer Reports’ Spam Findings Rank Hiya-Powered T-Mobile Name ID as #1

In the midst of the FCC Strike Force’s plan to find solutions against robocalls, T-Mobile’s Name ID (powered by Hiya), has stood out amongst the competition. T-Mobile Name ID has been named as a top contender that promises “to block robocalls on cellphones, internet-based VoIP lines, and classic old-school landlines,” per Consumer Reports.

Put up against 21 other providers based on six criteria by Consumer Reports, T-Mobile has stepped up to the plate by providing a number of solutions within Name ID and its latest update.

T-Mobile has made it a priority to protect its customers against spam and robocalls. By partnering with Hiya to offer Name ID, T-Mobile is providing call protection by identifying and blocking unwanted calls.

With their latest update, T-Mobile Name ID customers can expect:

•Identified calls and texts from unknown phone numbers
Know who is calling or texting before you answer. T-Mobile Name ID combines T-Mobile and partner data to provide identification for over 600 million phone numbers. Easily manage call preferences within the application settings.

•Simpler, more functional design
Based on Google’s “Material Design” principles, T-Mobile Name ID now operates in the manner that users of modern Android devices understand and expect.

•Dangerous caller identification
Robocallers, IRS scammers, political calls, and other nuisance or even dangerous calls are identified immediately so you can decide whether or not to answer.

•Smart Blocking
Prefer not to choose which calls to answer? Let T-Mobile Named ID automatically block any combination of spammers and hidden callers.

•Spam Reporting
Was a call incorrectly marked as spam? Or did you receive a call that should have been marked as spam? No problem–now you can report the issue.

•Improved Block List
T-Mobile’s block list now has its own area of the app where you can easily block or unblock callers from your call log. You can also choose whether or not blocked calls show up in your call log, and manage notifications.

•True call blocking
Send blocked callers to voicemail or block them all together with “hang up” blocking.

•Reverse phone search
Lookup phone numbers to receive contact information for over 600 million people and businesses.

•Improved memory performance
T-Mobile Name ID uses even less memory, runs faster, and uses less battery.
