    Can't blame you for being confused - just the time you start checking it out, it happens to be broken, with yet another "new year" bug in the code.

    I've got a problem with DND with a slight twist.  I manually slide it on when I finish working and slide it off right before 9:00am.  I have a friend that was on my favorite list, but I temporarily took them off when they called late a few times.

     

    I have subsequently added their contact back to my favorites list.  But for some reason, when they call and DND is turned on, the phone doesn't ring.  It rings when other favorites call during the same session.  I have verified that they are calling from the same number and that I have added that specific number to my favorites.  Their missed call and subsequent message proves that they called from the number that is set in favorites.

     

    I removed them from favorites and readded them.  I also made a slight modification to their contact and resaved it just to make sure everything was "set".  Not sure what else to try.  Has anyone else seen this behavior?

    Sounds like a bug. It looks like it's caching the Favorites list and not re-reading it after you've made a change.

     

    What if you go into Settings > Notifications > Do Not Disturb, and change Allow Calls From to No One and then back to Favorites? That might force DND to re-read it...

     

    Did you restart the phone?

    I think I did do that, but I did it again for good measure.  I'm hoping that since there are other DND issues, that there will be an IOS 6 update to address all of them soon.

     

    I totally agree with your assesment, BTW, that DND should not allow people to call in while the phone is active.  I set mine to DND after hours and weekend because it's also my work phone.  Nothing is more irritating that doing something as simple as checking in at a restaurant with foursquare or texting a family member only to have a customer interrupt right when I open my phone!

     

    That is NOT DND!

    "Nothing is more irritating that doing something as simple as checking in at a restaurant with foursquare or texting a family member only to have a customer interrupt right when I open my phone!

    Yes, no clue why they decided to implement it that way. I guess the thinking is that if you're actually using the phone, you're not "tied up" and must be ok with getting notifications, calls, etc. However, they didn't seem to consider if you are in a quiet meeting/restaurant/movie/classical concert/library. How embarrassing...

     

    The answer is simple - just add an option in the Settings called "Only when Locked" and let the user decide...

    You clearly did not read the reasoning of other users who talked about having alarm clock apps running.  These apps work just like a "real" alarm clock.  They display the time continuously and prevent the iPhone from going into AutoLock.  These are very useful apps and provide services that iOS does not with its built-in apps.

     

    But since the phone screen is not locked when these apps are running, DND doesn't function as it was intended.  It allows phone calls and other notifications to come through, disturbing the sleep of the phone's owner.  So these owners are simply asking Apple to consider making a change in iOS that would allow these apps and DND to both work properly together.

     

    So take a few deep breaths and calm down, eh?

    Excellent suggestion Frank, that is the easy way to implement the flexibility to allow the user to choose.

     

    Currently, the time when I want DnD to function as advertised is when I am sleeping and the alarm clock is running...Most other times, I can deal with the buzz if I have the phone in my hand.
