Set your phone to Do Not Disturb
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, like at a family dinner or during an important work meeting. 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 and software version.
