    Regarding "is this what the fuss is about and everybody complaining " Might want to do a little more reading and comprehension. It has to do with a lot more than just blocking a telemarketer's number (or any number you don't want to hear from). Do it, go back re-read because they did a great job explaining what the blocking feature is for. I apologize for not telling you my self but I feel your reply was snide for no apparent reason. Best wishes and best of luck

    Wonmotyme - The discussion was regarding those of us who have VZN which doesn't give us the blocking option. While I can see why u thought the comment was snide, I don't think it was meant that way. I, too, would like to learn about the blocking options since I'm on VZN.

    Smalltowngirl - I'm using the stock text app and found a setting that allowed me to turn off that pop-up problem. My screen doesn't turn on any more when I get a text. I'll try to go find that setting for u and will let u know.

    STG - I can't remember for sure if this is what did it for me, but I think this will work. ....

    Settings
    Lockscreen
    Pop-up note

    I unchecked that box and it solved the problem for me. My screen doesn't turn on at all now when I get a notification. Hope that helps.

    The implications of the content being snide was due to the person referencing people's comments as fussing and our complaining. Moving on to more interesting items. Unfortunately what people have been posting seems to be factual, the Verizon version, which I am a proud owner of, has been stripped of a few features most of us were looking forward to. I was very much looking forward to the blocking mode because I have been getting calls late at night from some people dialing the wrong number. I unfortunately do not have the luxury of turning off my device in case an emergency arises. Yet, the good out weigh the bad and this is the best phone so far to date by a huge margin. Hope everyone is having as much fun with learning their's as I am with mine.

    There are apps that put your phone into a silent mode when it's plugged in and some of them even let only certain callers through. Some also only turn on if your in a certain area. I used to use Motorola smart actions now I use hush free... there's all kinds of options just search around. I do miss my BlackBerry's beside mode... wish I knew how to code well enough to make one.

    The only reason I can think Verizon would remove features is because it didn't work with their garbage bloat... out they needed more room and something had to go. Either way I'm not pulling the trigger until there are a few good roms out for this.

    I use Call Block from the play store. Is that not the same thing as we are talking about here?

    I thought it was weird as well. But I am not worried about verizon charging me because we have to agree to their service plan to use it. Since that never came up they can not charge us for it

    Wonmotyme - Do u need all ur notifications to be on @ night or just ur phone? I use the Simple Sounds app to design my profiles and it works great for me. I have it set so only the phone rings @ night in case of emergency. But that may not be what u need.
