Call Interceptor is an all-in-one application for all your Incoming Call and Incoming SMS handling needs.
What exactly is Call Interceptor ?
Call Interceptor has multiple call handling functionalities. You can define a list of phone numbers you want to block calls from. You can choose whether you want to block just calls, just messages, or both.
Apart from this, it also has the feature of allowing calls from only certain numbers. Lets say you are in a meeting, and only want to receive calls from your boss. You can just activate the selective call allowing feature, and add your boss’s phone number. Now when your boss calls, your phone will work normally. For everyone else, it will keep the phone in silent state so that you are not disturbed. You also have the option of sending an automatic customized SMS to the caller saying that you’re busy.
How does it work?
When you open the application, you see two tabs on top – Calls Blocked and Calls Allowed. Both these tabs are described below in detail.
This is a list of phone numbers whose calls you want to block. Click on the Add Number to Block button to add a phone number to block.
On the new dialog, fill in the name and number of the person whose calls you want to block, or just choose one from your Contacts. From the radio buttons below, choose whether you want to block both Calls and SMS, Only Calls or Only SMS and click OK.
The main screen will now show the number you’ve just added in the list. Against each name, it shows the yellow message-blocked icon if messages are blocked for that person, and a green call-blocked icon if calls are blocked. To edit the entry, click on the blue pencil shaped button, and to delete it, click on the red cross shaped button.
The Calls Allowed feature, also known as the Semi-Silent Mode is a brand new feature, which is very helpful in cases when you want to receive only important calls. To activate this mode, click on the Activate Semi-Silent Mode button. You can add, edit and delete numbers from the Call Allowed list similar to the way it was done for the Blocked Numbers list. Once this mode is activated, all incoming calls will remain on silent except for those from numbers added to the Allowed Numbers list.
The Status field denotes the message you want to send a person whose call has been put on Silent. ex: “I’m busy, call you later” or “In a meeting right now, can’t pick up the call”. If the status message is empty, no message is sent.
Over all, we’ve tried to make an application that pretty much manages all of your requirements related to incoming calls and messages. However, if you have any suggestions for improvement, or you’re facing any problems, please get back to us. We’ll try to resolve your problem as soon as possible.
