Been getting annoying calls from your local witchcraft guild? Now you can add them to your black list and POOF they’re gone!
Without a doubt your very first step should be to visit WebGate’s website and download the User’s Manual if you want to take full control of the functionality of this app. If not, you’ll need a witch doctor to help you understand how you will best benefit. When I am busy and don’t want to be interrupted I found using ACM to send callers a text message that tells them I am busy but offering either an alternate phone number for emergencies or telling them to text me if it’s an emergency, a great way to professionally respond. If you work for a company where you are on call after hours what do you want your phone to do when you are sleeping? My answer to that dilemma is to add that special phone number to my white list so it will ring while blocking everyone else but still sending them a text message that I will call them tomorrow.

Tips and Tricks
Use Auto Reply to proceed your text message….reason, why would you use a driving profile and have your caller think you won’t take the call but you took time to text them while you’re driving?
Do this, set up a list under “manage lists” with just one number for now and name your list “white list”. Next setup an “active mode” for “active from white list” and make your active list “white list”. Now open default action and select how you want to treat the calls you won’t be answering. Scenario: you’re busy and are currently using a profile blocking all calls. Unexpectedly you have to call someone, but you have to leave a message but want to take their call when they call back. Solution: open your “white list” and add that person, then change your profile to “white list” and you won’t miss the call.
On all of my text message replies, I begin them with “AUTO REPLY. Seems kinda stupid to not be taking calls while driving yet sends your caller a text message. Do you really want them to think you’re driving but will text and not take their call?
