    I want to use Quiet Hours, I wanna know whether I will get the missed call or text notification after I disable Quiet hours after a night's sleep?

    I understand that calls are blocked and phone remains silent during the entire set duration. But, can we get to know what we missed in those hours?

    yes you can.... All notifications are there (live tiles, notification center etc) but the phone does not bother you in any way. Just unlock the screen and see if there is any unread notification. Simple as that!

    You will still see the calls you missed :) Cortana will provide a notification and as far as I can tell, it has never missed to notify me of a call that came through during QH..

    I activated the "calls back twice within one minute" (or sth like that; don't have my phone at hand), because if a call is urgent, the person will most likely call twice before giving up

    Dr Sammy,

    You will grow to LOVE Quiet Hours. It is one of the coolest Automagical features to come along in years. As others said, you get your notifications. They are not delayed even, they just are... shhhhhh... not even quiet, but Silent.

    Look into having Quiet Hours activate during calendar events marked busy. I use it ALL the time, Fantastic. And Inner Circle breaks through. Essential, because no matter what, some people are a priority. That's just life.

    I find Quiet Hours well thought out and executed. It has become essential for me. A must have feature, like Glance.

    Thanks Guys, Quiet hours is superb, really QUIET, No vibrations too.
    I set it up for my sleep timings in the night, but to get it automatically started we have to swtich location to ON right?
    I dont understand its association with Location and Cortana.

    Thanks Ven, I read that article before, I'm just wondering why MS doesnt make Quiet Hours work without Cortana or Location On,
    I'm asking about the technical aspect, may be the team is working on that.
    It works well, I'm happy with it.

    Thanks for the article :)

    Yes I understand.. The truth is not many of us know why lol I figure Cortana is the main thread and inner circle/QH are subsections. One needs the other to survive (for now)

    Got a thing to ask, at the same time I feel its a complex one.
    I liked ''Sleep'' app from Windows store few months ago by Blake Haas, I'm currently not using it. I want to use that app or some other app related to sleep, but is there any way I can make a particular app work even in Quiet Hours mode, I know the purpose of QH is to make everything silent.
    I primarily want my calls and texts to go Quiet with Sleep app working on, is this possible?

    QH only keeps things like calls and incoming texts/whatsapp/line/viber messages, silent. Otherwise the phone is very much active...

    If you were using flight mode then the phone would be (essentially) turned off (except for if you kept wifi on, but that would only give you messages from apps like whatsapp).

    So the benefit of QH is that the phone stays on; calls text messaging and whatsapp messages still come through, but you wont get a sound alert

    Edit: the sleep app which provides sounds, will work even if QH is on (if not, give me a haeds up and I'll test it out tonight)
