    Suddenly, my phone has decided to block ALL incoming calls, even from my favorite contacts and voicemail. I just cannot receive incoming calls. The notification shows "Missed call from (blocked) [contact name or phone number]." The [contact name or phone number] part shows the name of the contact or phone number that is being blocked.

    Outgoing calls work just fine.

    I have disabled blocked/black lists on the phone app, removed any restrictions from Hangouts/Voice and any other apps that interfere with the phone functions. I have restarted the phone and restored the phone app from Titanium. I have frozen/uninstalled any third party apps that provide calling/texting functions, such as voice, hangouts, talkatone, etc. I have cleared cache and removed default app options from phone/contacts.

    This problem suddenly started and I just cannot figure out what may be causing this problem. When I search online, it shows listings of apps that block calls, etc., but nothing that addresses my problem.

    I am an advanced user - I have root on my current phone (Galaxy s3 with 4.4.2), and have installed custom roms on previous phones (an old Charge, s2, S3), etc. I am not a newbie, so, PLEASE answer my issue without condescension - THANK YOU.

    I do not want to factory reset my phone - any ideas about what might be causing this problem and how to resolve it?

    Also, went through Verizon Tier 2 - no solution.

    Phone info: Galaxy s3 with 4.4.2, rooted, on Verizon (I535).

    Are you able to boot into Safe Mode to see if any 3rd party apps might be interfering? How to boot the Galaxy S3 into Safe mode?. I ask if you're able to, because I confess I'm not really sure if a rooted phone can boot into Safe Mode.

    I haven't been able to boot into safe mode for a long time. Before I had re-flashed once because an app had corrupted some files, I just couldn't get into safe mode, and I can't do it now.

    I'll get a new SIM which might solve the problem, according to VZ. I really don't want to re-flash.

    Any other ideas anyone??
