Mute and Block

To silence a contact, you have two options:
  • Mute - Calls and messages from this phone will not ring or notify you, but you will see the call and message history in your Inbox.
  • Block - Blocked numbers will not ring through and will process through to your Burner. Calls and message history will be hidden from your Inbox. Blocked numbers that call you will get a notice that the number has been disconnected. Finally, blocked numbers go into their own "Blocked" filter on the Contacts screen.
You can unmute or unblock a number at any time.
