How to enable Blocking mode - Jellybean 4.1


Blocking mode has options to disable any incoming calls or notifications, as well as disabling the alarm, timer and LED indicator

Notifications will still appear on the screen as normal but any sound or vibration for the notification will be disabled


To enable Blocking mode:

1. From the home screen press the bottom left menu key

2. Tap on Settings

3. Turn on Blocking mode and tap on it


From here you can choose what features to disable and set a time blocking mode will be active

eg: 09.00 AM to 06.00 PM

While blocking mode is active, all calls will be blocked unless the contact is in the Allowed contacts list

**A quick way of accessing Blocking mode once the feature is enabled is to slide down the notification panel at the top of the screen and tap on Blocking mode
