    I'm looking for an app on my Bionic (or Android phone) that will allow only certain calls from contacts ring my phone and mute all others. I work nights and so I sleep during the day and leave my Phone downstairs while I sleep. I don't like that since if there is an Emergency I'll sleep right through it. I am hoping their is an App out there that will allow me to pick and choose which contacts I want to allow to ring my phone. I see several different call Blocker type apps, but not sure if they are what I need or not. I'm hoping a few bionic users have something they can recommend that they use that will do what I am looking for or close to it.

    Are you looking to permanently silence some callers? Or just silence certain callers at certain times? If you wanna silence some callers permanently, you don't necessarily need an app. If you go into your contact list, just pull up the contact and hit the menu button, then hit the options button, and you can either change the ringtone (maybe to something shorter or quieter using a 3rd party ringtone app like Zedge https://play.google.com/store/apps/...t=W251bGwsMSwxLDMsIm5ldC56ZWRnZS5hbmRyb2lkIl0.) or you can have that contact sent straight to voicemail. If you just want something temporary, I use Profile, https://play.google.com/store/apps/...GwsMSwxLDUwMSwiY29tLm5vaW1qb3NoLnByb2ZpbGUiXQ.. . I don't think you can pick or choose individual contacts to silence, but I don't really use it for that. I'm kinda like you; I want my phone to be quiet at night while I sleep, but I don't wanna miss my alarm since I also use my Bionic as an alarm clock. So I have different profiles set up to change the volume levels of different notifications based on the time of day. I'm thinking if you use Profile in conjunction with Zedge you might get the results you're looking for.

    This looks exactly like what I am looking for. Downloading it now and will give it a try tomorrow since that is my last day of the weekend and if someone who is not on my list calls and wakes me up it won't matter much.
