    donnafromeagen - please refer to my previous posts (reproduced below)  regarding switch positions and lock status of phone.  It you follow and test accordingly - I think you may find it works.

     

    In settings - turn DND off.

    In notifications - set DND to be active at a later time than present.

    Is the moon visible or not?

     

    The time setting in Notifications turns the DND on/off switch in Settings on and off.

     

    If you turn it on manually (in settings) - it overides the time setting in Notifications.

     

    There is something to consider as you test...

    If the iPhone is not in lock screen - DND will be overidden.

    It assumes if the phone is not locked - you are available to take the call, irrespective of DND mode or schedule.

    Apple's wording on the Notifications screen is confusing.  When they say "When Do Not Disturb is enabled..." they are making people think they must turn on the DND in the Settings screen when in fact all they need to do is set a start and end time in the Notifications screen.   It would be clearer if something like "Immediate DND" and "Scheduled DND" settings were on the same screen.

    Or a 3 position switch with DND-Scheduled DND-Off as setting choices

    but maybe that's not elegant enough as Apple only has on-off switches

    I agree.

    Having 2 On/Off knowbs, one in Settings and one in Notifications makes things pretty confusing.

    It seems that it works after all if DND in Settings is Off and DND in Notifications is On

    The fact that the correct switch positions were not correctly understood by the Apple Support person I spoke with (only resolved at Level 2 support) is a clear indication that the setup is confusing.

    So if I have my phone on my clock radio charging, showing time, the DND function will not work. Useless function then, every time I get an e-mail in the middle of the night it notifys me, I thought DND would eliminate this. Do not disturb means Do Not Disturb!

    If the phone is not locked - DND is not enabled. It apparently assumes if it is unlocked - you want to be disturbed - or will press ignore on incoming calls.  Seems reasonable to me.

    Assuming you can see the time on your clock radio, and don't need to see it on your iPhone, just hit the lock button once you've placed your phone on the clock's charger.  DND, if properly set up. will then work as intended.

    My charger is a phillips sound dock so my phone acts as the time display. I disagree WFC_Exile. If I have my phone set to DND and I'm still using it, reading e-mails or whatever, I still don't want to be disturbed by phone calls. I'm going to try a work around and remove e-mails from notifications, no vibrations, nothing. It's the automated e-mails that get sent in the middle of the night that are annoying.

    The phone has to be locked for DND to function. WFC_Exile didn't invent or implement the feature. You may want to forward your suggestion to enhance the feature to Apple.

    I think if you turn the sound off and turn vibration off - the emails won't cause any noise.

    Which device is the 'alarm' source?  If it is the phone, you will have to test to see what overrides what - but wake-up alarms might trump everything.

     

    Can't really blame Apple because the phone does not integrate properly with a Phillips aftermarket product.

    You need to blame Phillips I think.
