Do Not Disturb

This is a great new setting. What it does is to block all incoming calls and turns off all your notifications. Perfect for those days where you don’t want to be disturb or when you need a restful sleep at night. You can customise this and allow more important people to still get through and be in touch.


Go to Settings, Sound, Do not disturb, it’s default to be OFF. Press it to start customising your parameters.


You can set it to automatically turn off, turn off at a specific time, provide exceptions for your family, select friends and boss, and allow/remove your alarms and timers too.

Swipe downwards with 2 fingers, & click the edit icon on the top left hand side, next to the menus switcher.


That gives you easy access to Do Not Disturb, Data Roaming toggle, Media Output Control, Ringtone changer, and so much more.
