Oh, I didn't understand what you meant. I thought you want a data plan for a phone that does not have calling capabilities...

Hi I'm new here and I happened upon this post. If I understand correctly, you want to have calls go straight to VM while data is still on, right?  If this is the case, go into your settings,  go to sounds and notifications. You can select "do not disturb" mode so that calls go directly to vm and you can still use data (you can also customize this). Hope this helps.

Welcome to the forums!

Thanks, it doesn't seem to work, I'll play around a little bit and see what happens.

Try a call blocker app.
 Something like this should do the job, just block all calls.

I'm locked out of my phone... The swipe won't work I need to enter a password. And it only gives me 10 attempts.  I tried it 9 times and I don't remember the password.


I tried to lock the device via Android Device manager but since the device already has a password it won't override it.

How can I get in??

I can't grant any permissions to apps. I get a pop-up that says screen overlay detected. I then have a list of a few apps that I can select yes.

I can't access pics on WhatsApp etc. Or even upload my screenshot to Tapa

Anyone have a good app which shuts data automatically at certain times? I know that there are many available but would prefer a recommendation.
