  1. This was great. I didn't know how to edit the reject mesages. I live abroad and my friends use 3-4 different languages, so now I have made the messages in all the needed languages instead of just the default list in my phones language

    1. Hi Benjamin Mikkelsen,
      Thanks for coming.
      Glad to know that this article can provide something useful for you :)

  2. Seems to be that I am limited to 6 messages is that correct?

    1. Hi Mary Klafert,
      Thanks for coming.
      Theoretically, you should be able to add them up to 10 messages. But, it's may vary depending on your carrier or else.

  3. Hi there, My Galaxy 3 USED to let me see who is calling and then send a text instead of answering ... but latest update seems to have removed the option of sending an incoming caller an immediate text saying "cant talk - in meeting- so pls send quick text!"which I used to be able to do.. is there a way to do this again? (not reject all callers which seems to be only new option)

    1. Hi Buddy,
      Thanks for coming.
      Did you mean about call reject message as I've mentioned in this article? This option (reject call with message) will be displayed at the bottom of the screen when you receive an incoming call. You can use this option to send one of your reject message to the caller which will also reject the call. FYI, this option isn't removed in all Android Jelly Bean. You can still find this option in the Call settings in the Phone app.

  4. Hi Rehan, I used to be able to do what you say... and now I cannot (have rung myself from other phone and tried every option and button!) I found the visual I get fyi
    any clues?

    1. Hi Buddy,
      Thanks for getting back here.
      Well, seems I was wrong. So, is it Samsung Galaxy Gear? I don't understand much about Gear, but from what I've read, if you reject a call in your Gear, you should be able to choose to send a call reject message to the caller. So, I'm so sorry if I can't help you much.

  5. Hi i heard about this but it is very annoying because when ever i remove my phone (Samsung galaxy note2 N7100)from my pocket this reject call with message appears by mistake i go to accept three call before looking i end up rejecting the call with sending some message i just wanted to know how to stop that popup

    1. Hi Ashrith Dkishore,
      Thanks for coming.
      The reject call with message screen only appears if you swipe up the bottom of the screen when you have an incoming call. However, since there's no option to turn this feature off, then you can avoid sending reject message accidentally when receiving a call by deleting all rejection messages in the Phone app settings.
