SOLVED: Where is DRIVING MODE on Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

A BLOCKING MODE icon on the Samsung Galaxy S3 Notification Screen what-is-blocking-mode-samsung-galaxy-s3-android-4.1.x has replaced the DRIVING MODE icon and so you may wonder what BLOCKING MODE is and what happened to DRIVING MODE.

  1. DRIVING MODE is still available on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean but it has been buried under SETTINGS > LANGUAGE AND INPUT > TEXT TO SPEECH OUTPUT > DRIVING MODE.  See: urtech.ca/2012/08/solved-samsung-galaxy-s3-driving-mode-google-maps-notification-volumes/
    .
  2. BLOCKING MODE turns out to be very well named as it basically stops the phone from giving you notice (no ring tone, no led flash, no vibration…) for the people and time of day you set.  See:  urtech.ca/2012/12/solved-what-is-blocking-mode-on-a-samsung-galaxy-s3-with-android-4-1-jelly-bean/
