How to block incoming calls on a smartphone, not including flight mode

If it so happened that for some time you would like not to receive or even see incoming calls, there is a way to get rid of them without putting your smartphone in flight mode – this will leave mobile Internet active. To do this, you only need to learn more about the capabilities of Android.

An important digression: on the iPhone, you can use the Do Not Disturb mode — always — or blacklist the numbers one at a time.

Disable inbox on Xiaomi

  • Now in the “Other settings” tab, select “Call barring”, and then the SIM card, if you have two of them and wait for the network settings to be read;
  • Enable the ban on incoming and / or other settings, confirm the action;
  • Finally, you need to enter a four-digit password: usually, it is 0000, 1111 or 1234. If the combinations do not fit, you need to find out the password from the operator.

Disable Samsung Inbox

  • Go to the contact settings;
  • Select your SIM settings and Call Forwarding.
  • Enter some non-existent number and activate the “Always” call forwarding.
