With this release, Microsoft improves some existing bugs and adds some improvements, but the truth is that it is not an update that highlights precisely for their news. The resources has published an interesting news that developer collects the discovery of Cat Walking dubbed Windows Phone 8 GDR2 hides a function that had gone unnoticed in previous analysis: the ability to block calls or text messages.
Social networking and messaging services often have the option of blocking contacts you do not want to talk, or for people who are bothering us. However, the phone calls do not allow similar locking type and often calls we face commercial or advertising messages that do not interest us at all. Microsoft have developed a system that allows you to filter both calls and text messages in order to choose who you can call and who not. For example we could block a specific number and so would cease to receive your calls, but we could also set other parameters as they lock all hidden identity numbers or all those who are not saved on our agenda of contacts. With text messaging could do exactly the same, very useful to block advertising campaigns often use this way to communicate.
However, resources warn that this function still remains hidden, that is, users who have an updated phone Windows Phone 8 GDR2 no access to this interesting feature. Microsoft has simply enter the code that allows operation , but have not created an interface to manage it. The reason for not taking advantage of this service is that it would be designed for developers to launch their own applications this advantage.
