1. Send someone straight to voicemail
If you'd rather not receive calls from a certain someone, then Android has a solution for you. I'm not talking about tapping your phone's sleep button to end a call either. You can set any calls from someone to go directly to voicemail. Here's how to do it:
First, open up the contact card for whomever you don't want calling. Tap edit, then scroll down to Additional Info. Tap the "Send straight to voicemail" option.
If you're sending someone important to voicemail temporarily, be sure to check your voicemail so you don't forget that you've semi-blocked them.
