MaziPhone Frequently Asked Questions

MaziPhone is a practical Android app/widget that lets you decide ahead of time and automatically what to do when a phone call comes in.

How do I install MaziPhone?

On your Android branded phone, go to the Market Place. Search for MaziPhone, find it and purchase it (it costs a mere $0.99). Once installed you will NOT find it under all your apps. MaziPhone is a Widget! To install, go to any of your home screens (where you have room for a couple of icons), and do a long press on an empty spot. From the menu that comes up, tap Android Widgets or Widgets. In the next screen, scroll to MaziPhone and tap it. Now you have MaziPhone running. Please note: The default settings IS to block all calls and send a simple text 'Sorry, I cannot answer the phone right now'. Please note: You have to tap on MaziPhone widget screen to go into the Settings at least once. In that screen you can further configure MaziPhone.

I followed above steps but still I do not see the app/widget?

As it turns out, if you install the app/widget to the SD card (or if your phone is set to install to the SD card by default) you may NOT find the widget in the widget list. To resolve this, please uninstall/re-install the app/widget to the phone and not to the SD card. MaziPhone is tiny and will take next to zero resources from your phone

What if I don't want to block certain callers?

In order to allow certain callers (spouse, kid, friend) to not be blocked by MaziPhone and for you to receive the call, tap on MaziPhone's home widget screen (the one that shows green/on or red/off) which will take you to the Settings screen. Tap on Favorite Contacts and place a check mark next to the contacts you wish MaziPhone NOT to block.

I bought and installed MaziPhone but it does not hang up on callers?

Please note: you have to tap the MaziPhone home screen widget (the one with the green "on" icon in order to go to the settings.) This has to be done at least once. If you did that but it still does not hang up on callers, go again into the Settings screen and make sure MaziPhone is not set to "Do Nothing". Finally, make sure MaziPhone is "on" and not "off" (red "off" icon showing on the MaziPhone home screen widget.

What if I tap on the home screen widget and it "crashes" and does not go to the Settings screen?

This is VERY rare and should not happen. However, MaziPhone is an app and despite EXTENSIVE testing done by us and many beta testers, this can happen. If this happens please follow this:

  1. Go to the home screen where the MaziPhone widget resides. Do a long press on the MaziPhone widget and "drag" it to trash. Next, do a long press again in the empty spot where MaziPhone was and select Android Widgets (or Widgets) and tap MaziPhone again to "re-install" it. Now tap it and it should go to Settings with no errors
  2. "OK, I did #1 and it still crashes..." In this case we must recommend you uninstall MaziPhone, then reinstall
