    When I was the commander of a volunteer organization, texts is how I notified my members of a call-out. I could blast out the pertinent info in one text to everyone at the same time. In the middle of the night, it's not such a jolt to have a text message ring, versus a ring for the phone. Much less disturbing to my wife.
    And that is fine. Bedside Mode allowed you to create a custom sound profile that would allow only what you wanted. So if you wanted texts only and no phone calls, you could do so. If I wanted phone calls only but no texts, I could do so. Being able to custom tailor it to your needs is what was nice.

    actually this feature is not that important to me anymore. I don't have my e mail ringtone set. I'm not the commander of the organization now so I don't need to know when certain e mails come in. Actually I don't even have that e mail account set up on my phone, just my Touchpad.

    That's just one part of it. If it is ONLY tied to a time, what happens when you stay out late one evening past the start time. You might want to get emails and texts then. It needs to be tied to a time AND being on AC power.

    Also, this scheme wouldn't allow you to turn off some notifications and not others. It would be all or nothing. It would be nice to adjust your notifications (sounds and vibrate) and not just adjust the overall volume or turn off the radio altogether.
