And no wonder, using the do not disturb mode is always good when you want to give a moment of relaxation with the family or alone, but there are a lot of people committed who just can't afford to disconnect completely, that's why here today is the solution.

What is do not disturb mode?

To know how to turn off Do Not Disturb mode when receiving a call, it is good to keep in mind that it is this mode itself, because although it is present on most phones, not everyone is familiar with this term.



It is very simple, this feature is designed so that when it is activated, it turns off or silences all notifications, calls or sounds in general on the phone. If what you read looked like it similar to airplane mode, it is because they are distant cousins.

Do not disturb mode does not deactivate all networks, to not allow anything to happen, you can activate and configure the do not disturb mode of Android or iPhone to decide which numbers you want calls to come from, and also if you want notifications not to ring but if turn on the screen as a warning.

 

Deactivate do not disturb mode when receiving a call, setting the function

How to activate do not disturb mode while driving my car is a very common question and its answer even more, being supported by the exact configuration of this mode.

Setting up Do Not Disturb mode is very simple and depending on what we want it shouldn't take more than 10 minutes of our life. First of all, to access this function, go to the "Quick settings" bar of the mobile phone, here obviously you select the option called "Do not disturb".



Once inside the function you will see that a menu appears with three options that can be placed, the first one being called: "Total silence" which is the most severe of all, as it blocks all phone sounds, including all scheduled alarms.

The second is called "Only alarms", as the name specifies, it silences everything except the alarms you have set. And finally, the third is called "Only with priority", this option is the least severe and the one necessary, as it leaves free alarms, reminders, sounds of specific applications and calls.

The best thing about this mode, and what will help us disable do not disturb mode when we receive a call, is the simple fact that we can configure it to our liking, with the options of "Until this option is deactivated", with one specific time (we can put a period of time on it and then it will automatically deactivate like 12 hours).

And last but not least "Until the next alarm", which is similar to the previous one with the exclusivity that even in total silence mode, the alarm will sound.

 

Deactivate when receiving a call or rather allow a call

There is no need to turn off Do Not Disturb mode when you receive a call. You just have to configure the contact from which you want to receive calls, SMS or whatever.

In the same menu do not disturb there is a call option "Other options", click there. Immediately afterwards another menu will appear where you can configure automatic rules, such as: on which day of the week and at what time the mode will be activated or in which events it must be activated.


But what matters is the section "Priority only allows", here we can configure which users (be they normal or prominent) can call or send messages, you can also make «Repeated calls», in so that the phone rings if it is the second time they call within 15 minutes.


With these options it is not necessary to deactivate the do not disturb mode, it can simply be adapted to the needs of the person. If it's a call from a boss or important family member, just allow the contact to access you in this mode and that's it. So you can rest and at the same time maintaining responsibilities.
