What is Blocking Mode in Jelly Bean operating system?

Last Update Date : Mar 28. 2018

Blocking Mode :


The Blocking Mode allows you to disable Incoming calls ( except for those on allowed list), notifications, alarms, and the LED indicator.  




You can also set the time the Blocking mode should get enabled and when it has to automatically get disabled.


The Symbol ( 1 ) will be displayed on the top left of the screen when the block mode is enabled.


Once you create the list of Allowed Contacts, and enable the block mode, you will be able to get incoming calls from only the person who are in the allowed list. The rest will automatically get disconnected and you will have a missed call alert.


The options can be activated by Going into Blocked Mode under the Settings menu.
