I bet you are like me - you have a smartphone in your pocket and the phone is much smarter than you think. I would also be willing to bet you’ve never read the manual. Which leads to the old time worn anecdote WAEFRTFM (When All Else Fails - Read The Frigging Manual)

But what is it about kids, you know the generation we see hanging around a lock, just chilling under their hoodies. Well give any one of those kids a controller and they can reprogram a video recorder, satellite box or the television set in a matter of seconds. So now when you see them stood around 'texting each other' They are in reality probably just doing a Snowden at MI6 and adjusting the DEFCOM settings at GCHQ.

So I set off on a mission, I was going to teach myself something new about my Android  (Samsung Galaxy S5) Smartphone everyday. So enlisted the help of Poppy the wonder dog - she is young, pretty smart for a mutt and gets on well with the 'lock landing kids' we come across in the towns we pass through. She is very good at breaking the ice (age gulf) between the old wrinklies (us) and the Daily Mail bone idle, work shy, benefit scroungers. (us and them)

Ever had some 'annoying nurk' continuously ringing you and thought. I wonder if there is a way to stop them from ringing my number and disturbing me.

So today I learned how to block calls and texts on my Android Samsung Galaxy S5!

On Android, Press the icon that says 'Phone' on your Home Screen. Next, touch the entry for the number you want to block under 'Logs.' Next, tap the menu button on your Samsung Galaxy Ace. Finally, select add to 'reject list.'
