    Verizon's at it again. I was really looking forward to blocking mode with the jb update, but they decided not to include this in the settings. Its actually hidden. However, you can still get it. This is part of the new software and not an app or 3rd party.

    First down load this app from the play store.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....quickshortcut

    Search for blocking mode.

    Click on the first one. There should be two.

    Rename it. I chose "blocking mode "

    A shortcut is now created on the home screen for blocking mode!

    Update: this creates a shortcut, but unfortunately its not fully functional. Post if you've found a fix please...

    How do you access blocking mode without using this app?

    You can't.......unlike other jb updates, this one is not accessible from settings. The app simply creates you a shortcut.

    But the real question is, does it actually work?

    Everyone was all excited when I figured this out for the Verizon Note 2, but it turned out that even though it says that blocking mode is enabled, it didn't actually block anything. Is it actually blocking stuff on the S3?

    I figured that would be the case given the similarities in the software between the S3 and the Note 2.
