    Open the Settings App > Notifications > Do No Disturb. Check the settings for Allow Calls From and Repeated Calls.

    I found the best way for do not disturb to work is to actually turn off the phone.

    Although it is a bit of a joke, I really did mean it when I wrote the most reliable way for me was actually turning off the phone.

     

    There are 100's of posts similar to yours regarding inconsistent behavior of the DND.   Try googling the problem also if no one here can help you.

    Was the phone asleep at the time (dark screen)? Keep in mind, it DND is only really active when the phone is asleep.

     

    Caveat: I have an iPhone 5, not a 4S as your profile indicates. I know the 4S had some issues with 6.1 and should be upgraded to 6.1. However, I don't recall DND being one of the issue with it. This is indeed working corrctly on both of my iPone 5s.

I wanted to go to apple to see whats wrong, but i havent b/c i didnt think it was a big of a deal , but now im mad b/c i dont like when thing dont work, while everybody is telling you this is what you should do for it to work.

    yes! as i took it liek that! B/c actually your right! lol But if my DND was working it would be nice to still use my phone , since it does things other that text & make calls. But i cant wich is annoying and agregaving when things you pay for always have something wrong. Its a brand new phone. I have google and i get the same answers.... maybe its just my phone that has this glich! i think i will jus turn off phone or put on silent! UGH! > technology no-a-days<  lol Thanks for ya help
