Can I request that a particular site be blocked or unblocked?

Yes. Please email any requests to change the Web Guard filters to contentcontrol2@t-mobile.com. Please include the website address (URL) and your request to block or unblock the content.


T-Mobile uses a third party vendor to assist in reviewing and blocking content for the Web Guard feature. T-Mobile’s third party vendor maintains the list of blocked URLs. Although T-Mobile does not comment on specific content, we do provide a tool to capture and provide feedback to the vendor. Your feedback will be reviewed and evaluated by our vendor, but, at this time, there's no procedure to provide specific feedback on your concerns. If you have questions regarding whether your request resulted in a change, please refer back to that URL.
