If I turn on Do-Not-Disturb, will it also silence my phone alarms?

what's preventing you to check this? – bakytn Nov 6 '12 at 19:03
same thing that prevented you. You could have made easy points @casey_miller! – emmby Nov 7 '12 at 19:11
I prefer showing how to solve problems rather than just solve the problems. – bakytn Nov 8 '12 at 6:12

Simply put: No, it does not.

I suppose this prevents an alarm not going off when you really need it to (i.e. waking you up).

This is from Apples website:

Turn on Do Not Disturb to suppress all incoming calls and notifications. Enable it manually or schedule a recurring time. Or allow calls from your favorites or specific contact groups.
