Use Do Not Disturb on Galaxy S6 edge and S6 edge+

Tired of telemarketers calling you in the middle of the night, or getting interrupted while you're in an important meeting? Do Not Disturb mutes all alerts on your phone, unless you set them as exceptions. You can also set a schedule for Do Not Disturb so you can always get a good night's rest.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Turn On Do Not Disturb

When you need a break from the constant buzz of your phone, turn on Do Not Disturb. This is all you have to do:

From the Notification Panel 

  1. To access the Notification Panel, swipe down from the top of the screen.  

  2. To display all Quick Settings, swipe down again.  

    Swipe to the left if needed.

  3. Touch Do not disturb.

   

From Settings

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.  

  2. Touch Search, then search for and select Do not disturb.

  3. To turn on Do not disturb, touch the slider next to Turn on now.   

  4. To turn off Do not disturb, touch the slider again.

Do Not Disturb Schedule

Schedule a time for Do Not Disturb to activate. You’re all set for that 9 a.m. interview. P.S.: For that one pesky app that's always bugging you with notifications, Change App Notifications individually.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.  

  2. Touch Search, then search for and select Do not disturb

  3. To set a schedule, touch the slider next to Turn on as scheduled.     

  4. To adjust the schedule, touch Days, Start time, and End time, and then set the schedule to your preference. 

Set Up Exceptions

Maybe you want to silence any calls that might come in, but you still need to hear your alarm. You can set up exceptions for Do Not Disturb mode. Here’s how to customize alerts:

If the exceptions are not adjusted, the Do not disturb mode will silence all alerts set on your phone.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.  

  2. Touch Search, then search for and select Do not disturb.  

  3. Touch Allow exceptions.  

  4. Choose from the displayed options.
