Make Your Phone Not Reachable Without Switching it Off
Switching your phone off is not ideal these days since mobile phones and our lives have become very coherent. The main problem with switching off the phone is you make the other person know that you have done it deliberately and that is not very smart, is it?
But do not lose hope, it has exclusively picked up the 10 best ways that can make your phone unreachable without you needing to switch it off:
Trick 1: Put Your Smartphone in the Flight Mode
This is the quickest, easiest and simplest trick in the bag to ignore someone’s calls. All you need to do is tap on flight mode icon and you are good to go. In-flight mode, the network operator detects you are in an out of coverage area and reflects callers to as unreachable.
Trick 2: Change the Network Preference of your phone
This is yet another effective trick. This trick will make you disappear from the caller’s radar in no time. All you have to do is to change the preferred network of your mobile phone. For this follow the following instructions:
Go over settings> more settings> network selection> manual.
Select manual, and just wait for 10 to 15 seconds, now your mobile phone will show all the available networks to you. The next step is to select any network which is not your current network. This will make your smartphone appear as unreachable.
When you are ready and want to take the calls again change the settings back to automatic in the network selection.
Trick 3: Forward Your Call to An Expired Number
This is a little bit tricky but serves the purposes just fine. Do you have a phone number that you do not use? An old number or even your working landline number would do (make sure the landline rings do not disturb anyone). To do this trick follow these simple steps as mentioned below:
Go to System app> Settings or call settings> call forwarding> Enter the number you do not use.
Trick 4: Hang the phone for good
Before going ahead with this trick it is important to know that this is a desperate trick and also will not work for a longer duration of time. If you have decided to go along with this trick, all you have to do is open multiple web browsers on your mobile phone, and now open multiple windows on each of the browsers.
Now start downloading internet files from every open tab. This will hang your phone, and you won’t be able to receive any calls for some time.
Trick 5: Remove The Battery Without Switching Off the Phone
This trick often shocks many people. Simply remove your battery from your smartphone without switching off the smartphone. By doing this, you will be found unreachable, until you put the battery back in. For obvious reasons, this trick will not work on phones where batteries are not removable.
Trick 6: Find a steel Dabba (container)

Make sure that it is steel, you can ask the ladies in your house if you can’t seem to figure it out on your own. Just put your phone inside, and shut the lid. The steel metal will block the signals. Make sure you silent the phone prior to putting it in the steel container.
