Question Do Not Disturb for Android? I want to text in class

Hello,

Is there a way I could get a Do not Disturb feature in Android? I have the Galaxy Nexus, unrooted, on 4.1.1. I just want all sounds to be turned off, including alarms and everything, so I can feel totally safe texting and using my phone in class (which is not allowed). I don't think silent mode cuts it, as things still make noise(such as google now).

Power off the phone. Then it will not make any sounds.

Ok, I'm not really texting, or really using it at all. It's just that sometimes I have to, for emergencies. And I have been powering it off, but that takes time.

I know if you root your device some ROM's have DND features in them that will disable the phone from being used, like put it into Airplane mode and on silent.

There is probably an app that could do the same.

I am assuming you saw the iPhone 5 commercial where they showed the "Do not disturb" mode.

With most Motorola devices you can use the Smart Actions app, which is even better than the apple setting, because with this you can set it to go on silent at specific times the day... and much more than that. Currently I use it for sleeping and work, so at 11pm my phone is on silent, then at 7am it comes on til 8am.. and so on..

But the galaxy nexus isn't Motorola so I'm not entirely sure if you're able to get that specific app, though I would think there has to be more apps that do the exact same thing.
Anyone know of any off hand?

Can't stand all those "emergencies" that happen while in class. If you have a legitimate reason for needing to be notified while in class, there are profile apps that allow you to have control of sounds, etc.

Hey pay a ton more than you would for similar hardware from other manufacturers, aaaannnnnnddd, well things kinda don't work sometimes. But you deal with the problem. They might as well have blamed people for holding it wrong AGAIN.

"Do Not Disturb scheduling feature will resume normal functionality after January 7, 2013. Before this date, you should manually turn the Do Not Disturb feature on or off."

Apple says 'Do Not Disturb' bug will fix itself after Jan. 7

Try Shush! I love it. I assume that you can recall to silence your phone as you walk onto campus or into class for the first time every day. Shush will allow you to silence your phone by pressing the sound key all the way to silent mode then you get a pop-up to choose to either silence it for xx hours or until a certain time of day.

(You may want to make sure all your notifications are truly silent. I have only used this occasionally and may not have all the notifications you have.)

Neither of those worked. I actually am rooted now, but CM profiles is hard to set up.

You know I am going to move this thread into the Android Applications forum since you are looking for an Application to help your device go in DND mode.

Hopefully someone there will have some more suggestions

It's funny how I made it through my whole school and University time (two degrees) without having the need for a mobile in class. I also taught some under graduate labs at one time and would have confiscated any phones that had been used and I would expect your teacher(s) to do the same. If there's an emergency then people should know where to get you if you're at school, the school itself should actually have a telephone with a number that anyone can ring ....

Bah humbug over ....

There you have it. What I use successfully on all my Android phones to make the sound disappear completely.

Well, Samsung has a mute all option on their newer devices. Anyway, just install Widgetsoid or some other similar app and put a volume toggle for notifications so that it will act as a mute all button. Set it to mute all notifications, and all apps are muted immediately.

I have to agree. I went through five and a half years of University life (also for two degrees) and the only portable phone available was a bag phone, which I did not own. In all that time, I had one "emergency" and somehow the university used my schedule and found me. Boy how things have changed!!

I use Tasker myself, both to silence the phone at certain times and also when I have appointments in my calendar (conditional on my busy/free status in the appointment). Sure llama could do the same.

Neither can make the phone invisible though, and as a university teacher myself that is what I require in classes

I tend to have panic attacks when I leave without my phone. What would I do without it?

Also, I was thinking of using
my phone for my studies- to record my professor's lectures- but I still need it to be silent. What about alarm volumes? I can't just change that every time, I just want one button to click.

I'm with hadron... I use Tasker to schedule changes to volume levels, but you could also use Tasker to create a shortcut on your home screen that dies what you want with one tap.

There are plenty if apps which can set multiple volume levels at once (ring, notification, system, alarm), some of which have been named in this thread. Almost any "sound profile" app can do this manually, while others we've named can automate this. You aren't limited to a built-in"silent mode" (which may leave some sounds on).

So, switch it to 'silent' and 'airplane mode on'. That way you get no calls/texts etc plus no unwanted sounds (though the alarm, and maybe other apps, can 'override' the 'silent') but you can still record/use the keyboard etc.

Default Silent Time

I use Silent Time. Installed it because my DD lives five/six time zones away and always forgets and calls me in the middle of the night.

You can set up a schedule for when all sounds are off, or a quick set up for temporary situations. But everything else works.
