NH3 and Transiton complexes

I am taking this correspondence course, i ran into this question and I think i know the answer but i'm not sure.
Why is it that NH3 readily forms complex ions with the transition elements but NH4 does not?
I think it is because of the extra bond with Hydrogen, therefore there is less unpaired d electrons but i'm not sure.
