OK, quick question on Do Not Disturb and notifications: If you enable Do Not Disturb, will VoiceOver still read notifications if you have them enabled to show on your locked screen?

Misty, Believe the answer is no. When the Do Not Disturb is set to ON and the screen is LOCKED. I believe you will get nothing on the screen. No notification will ever appear in this list or least Voice Over recognize anything there. HTH

Actually, I still get twitter notifications being read by voiceover on the lock screen when do not disturb is turned on. Really defeats the purpose of do not disturb.

Yes, must agree that is the one and only exception. I believe that is a bug. Hope that get fixed soon. Drives me nuts. However, what I did find that was interesting is that. Even if you have the person you want to recieve a text from in your favorite phone contact. Those text will not come though either even though they can call me when the Do Not Disturb is on. A bit odd that you couldn't recieve a text but wish that was an option. That would be the only exception I like to leave on in the DND is on and the persson is in my favorite list.

Does it matter whether you have an active appin the app switcher when do not disturb is enabled? I have gotten twitter notifications too. However, when I clear it from app switcher, they stop.

I have good reason for setting up a favorites list as I'm sure all of you do. I have a b/f overseas who contacts me after my DND is set. He is in my favorites list. He primarily contacts me on my home number,however, if I am out past DND time, I want him to have the ability to get me if my phone is forwarded to my cell. If that is a problem, I am going to have real issues.

Hi guys, if DND is on, will any alarms you have Set go off? I want to make sure this is actually the case.

I don't think dnd effects alarms, so I'm guessing that, yes, they will still go off when it's active or inactive. But that's just me thinking logically. *grin.*

Chelsea, Yes, the alarm will go off even if the Do Not Disturb is on. I use my phone to wake me up each morning and it does work just fine. HTH

My alarm goes off everyday even though do not disturb is enabled. My alarm goes off at 6 AM and do not disturb doesn't turn off until 7 am. So alarms work just fine even when DND is enabled.

Thanks guys, I ditched my alarm clock ever since I got to college and got an iPhone. It works so much better when I have different classes in the morning.
