    I was watching videos about all the cool S4 features and noticed the one called Blocking. Too bad I can't find it in my phone.

    Friend with Verizon S4 also missing it but friend with Sprint version has it.

    Any clue if we have it and where it is?

    Verizon removed it like they did with the S3.

    Many of the early video reviews where with the Sprint version... @ttrimmer is correct, there are even some blog's that talk about some of the differences between some of the different providers.

    And from what I understand (maybe someone can confirm) the app that can be used with the S3 to add blocking mode does not work on the S4 - at least not right now. But I'm sure it'll be a matter of time before something does.

    Not blocking mode in particular, but over tinkering of the OS is one of the several reasons I just left big red.

    Can you post a screen shot of your toggles? Just curious as to what is there versus Verizon.

    AT&T has the same stuff as sprint. As in they both have a wifi air gesture and blocking toggle

    Just switched from t mob, wanted blocking, verizon has to do it. It took a few minutes at store/kiosk but it works now.

    I had read this post before, I went to my local Verizon store and was told that they could not open up blocking mode for me. Read another post about Quickshortcutmaker, there is newer version out and it does work on the Gs4.

    Give it a try. I know it worked on my Note 2. The app is free.

    Blocking mode is available and works in the latest Verizon firmware update, but you do need to use a shortcut creator to access it.

    What short cut creator are you referring to? I have the latest update.

    Blocking mode is accessible in 4.3 via the notification panel and settings and can be triggered by any app that uses samsung profile switches (such as secure settings)
