    I believe they are talking about being able to set when calls/texts or emails are quiet at a certain time. I believe if you root it will work. Droidxcon is gonna help me tomorrow root mine and I will ask him.

    Correct, and Verizon wants you to pay for a service they offer. Yet Apple can dictate terms and their phones are left untouched. Go figure.

    I used it with no issues for about 5 days. It worked like it is supposed to. I stopped using it because I am already running Locale and it does the same thing. No reason to run two apps in the background doing the same job.

    May not be an issue for some, but it is a great feature.

    If you tap on the dialer, then tap the menu button, then call settings at the top of that page you will find Call restriction. Tap it and there is an option to toggle Auto reject mode and an option to manage an auto reject list.

    Ya but I want to schedule it to block only only certain people when I sleep along with all notifications. I believe I need to use to different apps for this. Wish a developer would create this for us.

    I think it's bizarre that my nephew has blocking mode on the sprint version of the gs3, but it's blocked on my Verizon version. Anyone have any idea what the reason for that be?

    Probably because they noticed that gs3 users were not using not using their call blocking function on their website and decided to remove it from the note.

    The response doesn't make sense, I'm asking why it would be removed from the Verizon gs3.

    I have been using it and have noticed one bug. If you try to create a custom list of allowed callers, it will crash when you attempt to save the custom list. You can use your Favorites as allowed callers, but I can't make Custom work.

    That sucks. The "Blocking Mode" is one of the reasons I went with the Note 2 over other phones. I would be pissed with Verizon for removing the feature.

    The real question is not whether Verizon hid it because it's either it was broken or they wanted to charge for it. No.

    The real question is: is it broken because Verizon wanted it to be broken?

    Use Tasker to essentially create your own Blocking mode. Mine activates under the conditions of between certain hours AND if it is plugged in so if I am out later than normal it doesn't silence my calls.

    I then have it silence the notifications and lower the call volume. I don't get regular phone calls at night so I do leave ringer on low in case there is an emergency. I think I could make it block calls from everyone except certain people if I wanted, I just haven't tried yet.

    And if you haven't used Tasker it is great for a lot of other stuff too.

    I really don't know why so many are upset about it being hidden/buggy. I've been using Blacklist from the Play store for years and it works flawlessly. The dev has a free version as well so no need to spend money unless you want to help support our wonderful developers.

    Because you can't have it on a schedule like the Icrap. I'll check out Blacklist. Thanks for posting

    So instead of using an OEM built in firmware that should come with your device out of the box, you have to look to 3rd party alternatives. I'm glad you're ok with this, but I'm not. I bought the phone expecting it to be there as it was a stand-out point on many reviews I saw before picking it up. The fact that Verizon hid it and potentially broke it intentionally really pisses me off. (I said that last part in a Duke Nukem accent)

    Either way, unless it get's fixed and added into an OTA, I am going to call bull on Verizon and make a huge fuss. No excuse why they would remove this feature.

    You're rightfully entitled to fuss all you like. I'm simply pointing out alternatives at this point. It's a phone for cryin' out loud. When a piece of technology starts upsetting people, maybe it's time to step back and take a look at the big picture.

    I paid full retail for my Note 2 ($741 to be exact) and I don't let it or anything else **** me off. It's a material thing. Would I want my two year old son seeing daddy getting pissed over a piece of plastic? What would that say to him? Nothing I'm interested in.

    There are way too many important things in life to worry about something so small and insignificant as this. Install a third party call blocker and be done with it. Plus, third party apps are what make Android so awesome. Support the devs.
