A tech blog I read a couple weeks ago did a comparison between Windows Phone, Android and iOS. It mentioned that Windows Phone had some limited call control options.

Is this actually the case, or were they stretching the definition of call control to include saving a contact and setting it to a silent ringtone?

  • A link to the aforementioned tech blog would be useful.

  • They didn't go into any detail. For all it matters I could have heard it on the street.

  • Call blocking for example.

  • Is this the article to which you are referring? (Look under the heading Call Features) Does anyone know if the Do Not Disturb or canned SMS texts are on the books for Windows 8? Jul 12, 2012 at 18:25

Unfortunately there aren't any call controls in WP 7.5 - which is a shame! The only thing you can do is to set a specific ringtone for a caller via the People hub.
