    How to block calls and notifications in my Samsung Android 4.1 phone?

    In order to prevent distractions during working hours, I wish to block unwanted incoming calls and the notifications on my Samsung Android 4.1 phone. Can anyone tell me how to tweak the settings to block them?

    Yes, you can tweak the settings for the incoming calls and notifications in your Android phone with a few taps only. First, open the App drawer and then go to the settings. In the settings page, scroll down to the Blocking Mode option and just tap the slider to turn on this. Once you reach the Blocking Mode page you find options for disabling incoming calls, alarm, notifications and timers. Just put a check mark against the ones which you want to disable. You can also set it according to a way whether a specific person or a created group of contacts can be accessed. Just select contacts by check boxes. I think you query is been solved. Have a good time!
