I'm so confused! Do not disturb worked so Awesome! I work 7p-7a....and can not figure out my alarm and interruption modes. My understanding is I have to reset my schedule every time it changes. I just want my phone to sleep when I push do not disturb. Also I want emergency contacts to be able to call when I don't want to be disturbed. Why was this changed? Sleepless in Indy.
What phone do you have? I don't quite follow what your goal is in your post, but I'm going to take a stab. You want to be able to turn your phone to complete silent mode; no interruptions and use your alarm at the same time and allow certain contacts to reach you?
It sounds like you have an S5; after the update setting your alarm got tricky.
If that's the case try this:
Settings>Sound and notification>Interruptions
From there you can adjust them as needed. When I want to have my phone on silent, but still use my alarm I do this:
When calls and notifications arrive>Only allow priority interruptions>Indefinitely (or select a time length)
If you want certain people to interrupt do this:
Select Phone Calls>From>Favorite Contacts Only (keep in mind you'll need to have made those contacts your favorite)
Once your priorities have been set you'll see a Star appear at the top in your notification bar, that alerts you to the fact that you have it turned on.
I have a HTC One that is missing it's Do Not Disturb option after the
latest upgrade Before the update I could select DND when I went to bed
and had already set who could call, during DND time, in an emergency, such
as my husband and mother. Now I have a Interruption option. Also I can only
choose all, none, or favorites (or equivilent to) for persons who can call
during uniterrupted time. Also this makes it difficult for me because I
have to remember to reset days and times, VERY often. I work 3 nights a
week with a different schedule every week. It would be ok if I work Monday
through Friday 8-5. This change causes me pain because I have to go to
interruptions, change days and times, choose priorities/or favorites. In
the past I could choose DND and it made everything uninterrupted. When I
woke up I would take the DND off. I'm really bummed about this has changed.
Is there anyway I could get it back??
