Note 2: block/ignore calls without dropping LTE
I tether my i317 Note 2 on T-Mobile to video chat. I need LTE to video chat. Whenever I get a call, it switches to 3G and kills the video chat.
I tried "blocking mode" in settings, "ignore all numbers" in the phone settings, and both, and regardless, whenever someone calls, while it does 'block' the call (doesn't ring, immediately shows as missed) it drops LTE every time and video chat stops.
My workaround after it drops LTE because of a call is to disable mobile data for about 5 seconds, turn it back on, and hope it connects back to LTE. Most of the time it will reconnect to LTE, some of the time it will reconnect to 3G. Either way, it's driving me nuts and hurting my business.
I need the phone to stay on LTE even if someone is trying to call me. I'm thinking of changing my number to Google Voice and using forwarding to go to my phone. That way, I can disable call forwarding on Google Voice and people straight up won't be able to call my phone and disable LTE unless they randomly dial the phones random number instead of the Voice number.....kinda complicated to do that.

That may be the only way. I don't really have any other suggestion, and in fact, I was kind of thinking the same thing.
