Be Distraction Free with 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.

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

Turn Do Not Disturb On or Off

When you need a break, unplug in a few simple steps. Enjoy the peace and quiet.

From the Notification Panel:

To open the notification panel, using two fingers, swipe down from the top of the screen. Swipe to the left if neccessary, and then touch the Do not disturb icon to turn it on or off.

From Settings:

Open Settings, and then search for and select Do not disturb. Touch the slider next to Turn on now. To turn off Do not disturb, touch the slider again.

Do Not Disturb Schedule

You can set a time for Do Not Disturb to activate. You're all set for that big meeting. Navigate to Settings, and then search for and select Do not disturb. Touch Turn on as scheduled, and then touch the slider. Select and adjust settings as desired.

Set Up Exceptions

When you turn on Do Not Disturb mode to concentrate on your work but are expecting an important call from your boss, allow exceptions to customize what alerts you receive. Navigate to Settings, and then search for and select Do not disturb.
