Call monitoring applications can be your best friend or worst enemy, while they keep away the calls you don't want to come through, they can just as easily be keeping away some of the extremely important calls that you do want to come through. Setting up lists that allow and don't allow certain calls to filter through at various times can be a bit of a daunting task since you don't want to miss any on the allow list that could possibly cause you to miss that important phone call from the school or a doctor. Qwell is a new BlackBerry application that will change the way users have to monitor their calls since there is no longer and allow and do not allow list that has to be created.
Instead of creating lists, users will activate the application which then is good for all inbound calls. Now don't fear, this does not mean that you are then rejecting all the inbound calls, instead it gives the caller a chance to decide the importance of the call. While the application is active it will give the callers a message stating that you are not accepting calls currently but if it is important they can then chose to have the call connected anyway which sends the call to your device. If the caller decides it is not an urgent matter they are then able to leave a voice mail for you to return their call at a later time. While your device is in "Qwell Mode" it keeps track of any missed calls or voice mails that took place during that time so that users are easily able to view this log once they are done with the activity they were doing. Be sure to check out the video after the jump and for more information on this service, as well as a download link head to the Qwell site.
