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.

DND Indicators and Situations 

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    icon displays next to your phone line in Lines view, as shown next. If you have new messages or forwarding enabled, the messages or forwarding icon will display instead.

  • The DND icon in Home view changes from    to   , as shown next.

Enabling Do Not Disturb on shared lines disables ringing only. You’ll still see a visual notification of the call and have the option to answer it.

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.

 From Home view, select DND. Or, if your phone is idle, press DND.
