    Default silencing a single contact?

    I have a contact in my phone(celly) that I recieve 100+ text from a day. On my blackberry I was able to turn the text tone off and the vibration off of just that contact. Is there any way I can do that on the note 3?

    Divorce?

    I went through all the Contact and Sound settings and like you couldn't see a way to select 'none' in message notifications for one contact. I guess another app or Hangouts might do it.

    A sound profile app should be able to do this.

    Ahh. You won't need the number of a hit-man either then!

    I tried putting a contact in a new group but that doesn't work.
    I am just curious if it can be done, it should be.
    I think I had a similar need in the distant past.
    As Deb above said, maybe a sound profile app.

    It's a quiet Sunday so it may take a while for someone with a direct solution.

    If it allows for individual ringtones, then record one of your own. I use RecForge Lite.

    I think I found a convoluted way of doing it. You can select to allow all messages but untick the one you don't want.
    You can choose to receive calls but not texts except from the Custom list, which in your case is everyone bar one number.
    Of course you can also use blocking mode at night for calls and/or texts at the hours you choose.
    Not 100% sure this will work, but you might want to give it a try, and I / we would appreciate the feedback.

    ON EDIT: What the difference is between going to Allowed Contacts and Allowed Contact List I can't figure.

    Go to your contacts and edit that contact. You can choose message alert there and set to silent.

    I can't choose silent or none on my contacts. A heap of ringtones for calls and messages but no option for none.
    Only 'None' in default Notification sounds and ringtones.

    Oh, ok, well they can just record their own silent track and use that.

    If anyone doesn't have a file manager installed that lets them choose their own ringtone files, you can install ES file explorer for that purpose.

    I think Blocking Mode will work at all times, and still be used for other things.
    Samsung Mesages can also be set to silent, but for all contacts.

    Allowed Contacts is just where you choose the option of what to allow. Allowed Contact list is the custom list of contacts. When you choose custom under Allowed Contacts for the first time, it sends you to the Allowed Contact List to add contacts since you don't have any yet. If you choose one of the other options it doesn't. If you have already chosen Custom before and added people to your list, then it will not send you there again if you choose custom. It assumes you want to use your pre-existing custom list. You click on the List option to edit it instead.

    But I'm Irish. We don't do logic.

    I knew there would be some reason, but I didn't have time to figure it for the OP.
