How Set Up And Use 'Do Not Disturb' On iPhone (iOS 7)

Don't you hate it when some inconsiderate person/company sends you an email in the middle of the night... Or a spammy app pushing a notification telling you to play the game... Or that person who texts or calls you while you are trying to sleep.  The best solution - set up 'Do Not Disturb' on your iPhone! It's a great feature from Apple that can stop those alerts from disturbing you, while leaving them on your iPhone until you're ready to see them.

Setting Up 'Do Not Disturb' on iPhone:
1. Head over to the 'Settings' app.

2. Tap on option 'Do Not Disturb'.

3. Their is a 'Manual' or 'Scheduled' setting. Manual will only activate 'Do Not Disturb' when you choose switch it on, from the Settings app or through 'Control Center'. Schedule, will automatically switch 'Do Not Disturb' on the days and times of your choosing. This is great if you want it on overnight and you have a regular sleep and wake time.

4. Other options are: "Allow Calls From". In this option you can choose whether you want to allow calls from; everyone, no one, your favorite contacts, or all your contacts, to break through Do Not Disturb.

5. The "Repeated Calls" setting, when switched on, will allow a second call from the same person (within three minutes) to sound. A good option to have on if you are not allowing any contacts you call you when 'Do Not Disturb' is on.

6. "Silence": if 'Do Not Disturb' is on, but your are using your iPhone, you can allow incoming calls and notifications to go through. Or check "Always" to silence all calls and notifications even if your on your iPhone when 'Do Not Disturb' is on.
