Use Do not disturb mode on your Galaxy phone
Studying the night before an exam? A distraction is the last thing you need. Don’t let anything pull your focus with Do not disturb. It mutes all alerts on your phone when you really need some peace and quiet. You can also set Do not disturb to turn on or off automatically at scheduled times. Of course, you can always set certain alerts as exceptions so you don’t miss an important call.
Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and phone model.
