    Is there a feature in WP7 similar to the "Do Not Disturb" like Apple is introducing in iOS 6? I know (some) android phones you can lay face down and it will automatically do that.

    I really like the idea of that for night time or nap time.

    How is this different than airplane mode or battery saver?

    I don't think it turns off all your radios. What I don't understand is how it is different than silent mode. With the android phones you can put them face down and it just switches to silent mode. Not all that special. I think do not disturb is how Apple is "inventing" silent mode. Lol.

    Lets not pretend that this is just a version of "silent" mode or airplane mode, there's a bit more functionality than that. iOS 6 offers Do Not Disturb feature, adds more Zs to your slumber -- Engadget

    Silent Mode <- Works great when I want to nap or

    Could you not turn on Call Forwading and forward the call to an answer machine when you need to sleep and let the answer machine get it.

    Has for push notifcation and the like, Without turn off Cell or Wifi, you could turn them off in Background Applications that should turn off push notifaction for most programs after all and period checking etc.

    My thoughts on it..

    I am sure this will get moved to the "Other OS" thread.

    I don't understand why many of the comments here are so against whatever another OS is doing, even if it is something that is interesting. Some of the things that are out there for other OS's would be pretty cool on my WP. You guys don't have to bash everything that is not WP.

    I don't even use WP right now. I'm just saying this is nothing new. There are 3rd party apps on android that have been doing this for a while.

    You're right though, it would be cool to see functionality like this come to WP.

    there is an app for htc phones called attentive phone that does the exact same thing... not sure if it is exclusive or not. but it also has a pocket mode that recognizes its in your pocket and rings louder. it can also be turned over during a call to silence a ring, or just lay over for silent mode

    That you can set it to say "allow those important people on my whitelist to ring or call between 10pm-6am".

    So if work phones, they get the answer machine but if you mum rings at 3am because your father has had a heart attack, then it rings..

    At least that is what I understand it to be.

    **** we don't even have office hours for emails yet! :dry

    that is exactly what I am talking about. Important calls could still get through. Much better than just putting phone on silent.

    I wish this was available on WP7. The one I used on Android had a white list for calls and texts, very helpful.

    This is probably the only thing I miss from my Android days and I am jealous that iOS gets it.
