I have an iPhone for work and I want to set Do Not Disturb to block all notifications except calls. I do not prioritize reading emails and messages outside of normal working hours, but if the phone rings, I will answer it.

I want all calls to ring, not just vibrate, and I do not want to set Emergency Bypass for contacts as I occasionally get calls from external contractors who I don't know. How do I set this up?

On Android, this is easy.

Yes that should be easy.

Settings > Do Not Disturb > Allow Calls From > Anyone

enter image description here

If you want your phone to ring instead of vibrating, you should leave the mute button on the left side deactivated.

  • Hi Darwin. Thanks for that. The mute button was activated and didn't realize.
