Tired of getting calls from telemarketers, phone surveys, and pesky debt collectors? If you have a Samsung Android phone, you’re are in luck! Here is a neat feature that allows you to avoid the nuisance: Auto Reject. This feature automatically filters incoming calls so that calls from non-contacts will not be connected, and you will not be alerted of the missed call.
Here are the steps to activate this feature:
2. Go from Call Settings -> All Calls and select Auto Reject
4. From here you can create a set of blacklisted numbers using the menu button. The list of numbers will be saved and you can toggle when they are blocked.
We tested this feature on the Samsung Galaxy S, and it should work for all owners with 2.2 or later firmware. We also took a look at the Google Nexus One running Android 2.3 firmware but it lacked this feature. Remember to promptly save your new contact information; you don’t want your potential employer’s interview call being rejected. It should also be noted that while phone calls will be screened, text messages will still go through.
Here is a video demonstration of the feature in action:
