Is it possible through a setting or an app to receive only text messages and not phone calls?

Specifically I have an Samsung galaxy s3

    Not tested: you could disable the Dialer, go to Settings > Applications > Phone (or possibly 'dialer') and disable. Not a great work around. You could route it to your Google Voice mail if you have that set up. You could use a blacklist app: play.google.com/store/apps/… or play.google.com/store/apps/… and see if you can block only calls... Let me know if anything suits or works and I'll expand a fuller answer.

Not sure about the Galaxy S3, but my S5 has the option to disable just the calls. Open the Dialer → Settings → Call → Call → Rejection → Auto rejection mode →All incoming calls.


Use call forwarding. Forward to a number which is not in the network.
