Unfortunately, in spite of their "uncarrier" schtick, they don't offer this on grandfathered plans. I'm on an old 6GB/month plan that provides high-speed tethering, which I don't want to give up, so that means no scam blocker for me.

I get far fewer scam calls on the cell phone than I do on my ex-landline (now VoIP), at least. For the VoIP, I had to set up a CAPTCHA on Asterisk.

You should double check with customer care (611). As I mention in a sibling comment, I'm on a very old plan (20+ years). It's SimpleChoice, 10GB per line unlimited calling and texting (4 lines + 2 free as part of a one time promo).
