Do not disturb

Enabling Do Not Disturb (DND) stops your phone from ringing and sends all incoming calls directly to voicemail. All calls you receive while DND is enabled are logged to your Recent Calls list.


When you enable Do Not Disturb, the following happens:

  • The Do Not Disturb icon displays in the status bar.

  • If your phone is idle, the Do Not Disturb icon, displays next to your phone line in Lines view (If you have new messages or forwarding enabled, the messages or forwarding icon will display instead.)

If you’ve set your presence status to Do Not Disturb, as well as enabled DND for your phone, the message My Status: Do Not Disturb will display instead the date display, and the DND icon won’t display in the status bar.

To toggle Do Not Disturb on and off:

Do one of the following:

  • From Home view, press the DND soft key.

  • Or, if your phone is idle, and the DND soft key is show than press it.


By default, the Do Not Disturb feature applies to all lines on your phone. However, your phone may be set up so that you can enable the feature on a per-line basis.

To enable or disable Do Not Disturb for a particular line:
  • From Home view, press the DND soft key.

  • From the Line Select screen, use the Up and Down arrow keys to select the line to enable or disable Do Not Disturb on. 

  • From the Do Not Disturb screen, select Enable or Disable.
