    Is there a way to set my note 2 up to block or send straight to voice message any calls that come from restricted or unavailable numbers? I do not want my phone to ring if any numbers using this call.

    Thanks.

    Go into Call settings --> Call restriction --> turn ON Auto reject mode, the go to Auto reject list & create whatever rule you want.

    I try to "Create" a new rule, and go to my logs, I select an "Unavailable" call, though since a corresponding phone number does not display for the unavailable call, it does not get placed into the text field necessary for creating the rule. Same goes for restricted calls. Is there another way to do this?

    Thanks.

    My Auto Reject list has a check box under the "Create +" line that says "Unknown Number". Do you have that option? If so, check the box.

    Awesome! It took less than 3 minutes.
    My employers are rerouting incoming calls to my cell and I don't want all those calls disturbing my non working hours.. Thank you for posting this!

    :rolleyes:
