Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Reject Calls Using 7 Different Methods in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

For certain reason, you may don't want to accept incoming calls and prefer to reject the calls. Luckily, you can do so in Samsung Galaxy S5 with ease by using several methods, ranging from the most common methods up to the advanced ones. These methods give you some alternative ways if you have difficulty to reject the calls using certain method in certain condition. Each method has their own advantage and can be used based on your need.


How to reject incoming calls using 7 different methods?
There are several ways that have been provided by this phone to reject calls, but in this post I'll summarize 7 different methods that can be used to reject calls.

Method #1: Swiping the on-screen reject call icon
This method is the common method that can be used to reject calls. You don't need to enable any option to be able to use this feature. When an incoming call comes and is displayed in full screen then you'll see two call-related icons. Tap and hold and then drag it to the left to reject the call.


Method #2: Single tapping the on-screen reject call icon
This method lets you single tap the on-screen reject call instead of swiping it, makes this method easier to be done than #1. With the single tap mode has been enabled, when an incoming call comes and is displayed in full screen then you just need to single tap to reject the call.


Method #3: From the call-notification pop-ups
If you have enabled call-notification pop-ups, when you're using other app in full screen view and an incoming call comes then it'll be displayed in a small pop-up window, gives you some time to finish or close your work before taking the call. If you want to ignore the call, you can tap in the pop-up window to reject it.


Method #4: Using Voice command
If you have enabled voice control for incoming call, when an incoming call comes you can reject it simply by saying the voice command "reject". Since this method lets you reject call without having to touch the screen, the it'd be useful to be used when you're in a situation where you hard to use your hand to control/navigate the phone. As a note, make sure your phone is not in the vibration mode when using this feature.


Method #5: Using Auto reject call feature
Samsung Galaxy S5 has a feature called call rejection that can be used to reject calls automatically. With this feature, you can easily block all incoming calls, block calls from specific phone numbers, or block unknown calls. When a blocked number calls, you won't be notified (either by ringtone or notification) and the call will be rejected automatically.


Method #6: Using Reject call with message
By using reject call with message, when an incoming call comes you can easily send a message(either by using the default message or creating a new one) to reject call, lets you give a reason to the caller why you didn't take the call so that they won't misunderstand. It's faster and easier than if you have to reject the call and send the message separately.


Method #7: Using Blocking mode
In the blocking mode feature, there's an option that can be used to block incoming calls. When you have enabled this option, you can easily block all incoming calls except calls from those that you have allowed to call you while blocking mode is on. When a blocked number calls, you won't be notified (either by ringtone or notification) and the call will be rejected automatically.
