Prepaid MetroPCS phones just got a bit more feature-rich. The company announced a new service aptly named Metro Block-it. In addition to providing the ability to block texts and calls, users can also use the app to file complaints against telemarketers and debt collectors with the Federal Trade Commission. Thats a pretty useful feature. The application is initially available only for Android smartphones, but will soon support BlackBerry smartphones and some feature phones. MetroPCS customers can find it in the Metro App store and will receive a free 30-day trial. After that the service will cost $1.00 a month.
