How to disable unwanted calls, SMSes on an Android device

Now your Android device will help you avoid all those unwanted calls and messages unless you really want them.

Even when telecallers are not there, there are certain people who we want to totally avoid and do not talk to them but they are always persistent on repeatedly calling and annoying us.

But with smartphones avoiding calls is simpler than picking the phone and disconnecting them. With some specific software application like the Netquin Mobile manager, it is now possible to disconnect calls without even having to bother about them. All you need to do is relax and the software application on your smartphone will do the rest for you. Once you have blacklisted anyone from your phonebook he/she is not getting through to you, well at least on this device.
