    Where is my "blocking" mode.

    Hey all,
    I have done the latest update along with an FDR. Reading an article from Samsung about 10 hidden features of the S4. I don't remember seeing blocking mode before the update but the article says it is here now. Was quite excited hoping for something a little like smart actions.
    Am I missing something? Thanks in advance.

    Verizon is not allowing the blocking mode to be activated at this time. Maybe a future update, similar to getting the Wifi toggle with the last update.

    BTW, why not update your profile and show the S4 a little love. It's a great device.

    Yep. VZW.
    Thanks for the information. I wonder why VZW will not allow. I found it on my note 8.0 and really love the lack of interruptions.
    Forgot all about updating my profile. It is time to give the S4 a little love.

    It's the same thing, but Verizon charges you past 5 numbers I believe. They took out the blocking feature so you can pay for their service. Crooks...

    No. Blocking mode is NOT the same as Call Reject. The S4 supports Call Reject.

    I have installed, (and uninstalled), several caller ID apps and found this one, (free) that allow you to block calls/numbers and also does a fab job of identifying the caller. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...umail.callerid

    Though it would seem to be pushing something called YouMail it's working great, so far.

    This is what I found blocking mode is:

    Blocking Mode

    Do you have a bug-a-boo stalking you? Is there a creep who keeps calling? The Samsung Galaxy S4 lets you keep them away with the blocking mode. It restricts notifications and calls from all but your approved contacts - and that can be at all times, or just during the hours you choose.*

    Seems to be roughly the same as call reject but more general. /shrug
