Sound profile, block incoming calls and sms RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't figure why my WP7 Mango beta2 does not have sound profiles. It's a basic feature for a phone, I got used to it since my first phone which I bought 10 years ago. And now it's 2011 and I simply can't tune and preset sound profiles in my phone with the latest OS for phone. That's a bit sarcastic bc if I want to switch from "max sound volume + vibration" set (which I use outdoors) to "no sound, no vibration" (office) I have to go a long way through the Settings section. As a user I want to make 1-2 steps to toggle profiles, no more.

     

    As for the second part ot my question, I want to have an application which will block incoming calls and sms from persons I had chose. Likethis for iPhone and this for Nokia. As far as I've understood there is no API for Windows Phone developers which will allow them to intercept calls, have access to call history (with rights to delete items) and access to sms. But why, why? If I as a user want to give access to the app which will do good things for me, it's not a security question.

     

    Thanks for your answers in advance.
