I want to turn on do not disturb mode on my iPhone. But we use a pager application for work, and I want that application to still be able to notify me and make noises.

How do I do that? I can only figure out how to allow contacts to not be in do not disturb mode.

Unfortunately, you cannot (on a non-jailbroken device). There is currently no iPhone feature available to exempt a specific application from either Silent or Do Not Disturb mode.


If the device is jailbroken, you can use Banner Sounds to allow certain notifications which match filters you configure the ability to bypass Do Not Disturb.
