    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.
    It's the principle of the matter, not the emotional trigger it causes.

    Do you get upset when you order food and they get it wrong? You should be. And if you aren't then that's on you. If I order a hamburger with cheese and it doesn't come with cheese, I take it back and demand what I paid for. Obviously blocking mode might not be the equivalent to cheese on a burger to some people, but to others it is. Just saying, why let this one company bend you over and take it without even making a fuss? That passiveness is how they get by and are allowed to take more and more from you, the paying customer.

    I do not have children yet, maybe in the next 5-10 years, but if I did have a son I would want him to grow up valuing his hard earned cash and making sure he gets what he pays for.

    I save my aggressiveness for XDA and the forums I belong to over there. If I order something from someplace and they get it wrong, yes; I do bring it to their attention. But not in a manner which denounces my intellect. Anger is the body acting without the benefit of intellect. I save all my anger and rage for things better suited to receive them.

It might not change anything but it is a way to get our voices heard.

    So are you telling me I am ignorant because I am passionate?

    And what do you do then when bringing it to their attention in a calm and civil manner gets you nowhere? Do you accept that you paid for cheese on your burger and the burger Nazi isn't going to supply it to you?

    I never called you anything. Do you feel insulted? Nobody here has called you anything to my knowledge.

    My physical stature and tone of voice usually yield me positive results when dealing with those in public that need to have something brought to their attention.

    And please don't let my low post count in any way deceive my level of professionalism. I've been on forums since the mid 90's.

    I take the bolded statement as indication that you believe I act in a way that makes me appear less intelligent. Hence my comment that you are correlating passion with a lack of intelligence.
    In which case yes I take offense to you calling me an *****.

    And in bold I said my. Not 'your'. But of course you'd take offense. That chip on your shoulder seems huge. Once you get over the online persona you'll have a much better time dealing with the awful reality that nobody really cares that much about frivolous things. Blocking mode included.

    Have a nice day and quit thinking everyone that doesn't feel the same way about something is out to offend you.

    Hopefully the things that the Verizon Note 2 are missing will be fixed in a update in the next few months. I honestly don't use multi window mode. It would be nice on a tablet but I don't see use for it on the phone. If it isn't updated by March or April, then I will probably root it. I actually like the stock ROM. It is as good as stock, but IMO it is the next best thing.

    Verizon is the only reliable source in the region I live in, otherwise I would go through T-Mobile.

    I say that they wanted it not to work!

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.
    I agree with you

    "best" is up for debate, but the screenshots look nice. No reviews, must be brand new.

    When it blocks a call, do we have the option of sending people to voicemail, pick up/hang up, etc?
