Nokia Lumia Update brings Call and SMS Filter
Nokia recently rolled out an update for Lumia Smartphones running Windows Phone 8. This update has been made available to Lumia users via Windows Phone Store. Not every Lumia running Windows Phone 8 has received this update for eg:- Lumia 1020, Lumia 925 and Lumia 625 and others still await the update.
One great feature about this update is the addition of a Call and SMS filter. This new addition will allow users to block unwanted phone numbers thus preventing any calls and/or SMS from these numbers. The feature is very easy to use. One just has to long tap on a number and choose Block Number. Or, you could access this from the Settings. One can also switch on/off this feature to block/unblock all numbers on the list respectively. Live Title Shortcut for this feature has also been made available.
Android users have had access to this feature, but with the help of 3rd party applications like Avast Anti-Virus for example. iOS 7, expected to release on the next iPhone might have this feature inbuilt.(1)
