Would you rather:

  1. Go through another Android update.

    This might seem like a relatively small gripe, but it's killing my productivity. Let me explain.

    Seems to be a common thread - unsuspecting M9 user clicks 'yes' to Android 6 update, loses more hair from resulting changes.

    The single most important feature removed during the update was the option to select 'until next alarm' on the do not disturb/alarm setting. Now every drunk hipster friend of mine "sharing" their elated mindset through texts while at the strip club comes through while my productive rear-end tries to sleep. (Tries being the key word.) Instead of fiddling with the DND mode (i.e. failing), I haven't used it in a week. Boy, have I paid for it.

    Before I get quick, mindless quips from people in the know, I can assure you I still have the on/off functionality of the DND mode. However, when I turn it on indefinitely, I assuredly forget to turn it off and miss important calls in the morning. Furthermore, the times I sleep varies drastically, anywhere from a half hour to 6 hours daily. Changing this option manually becomes a bit of a nuisance, especially since I just had an option that fit the bill perfectly.

    Android - who gives a kid a piece of candy then takes it away? You do, Android. You do.

    Again, this seems like small potatoes, I completely understand. But is anyone else feeling the pain? Furthermore, is there a way to lodge a complaint directly with the developers to bring this back?

    If you enter DND by way of the quick settings (and not the volume rocker) there are more options. The DND button is not there by default and you may have to add it first.
