    Default Mute all sounds except incoming phone calls?

    Is there a simple way to mute all notification sounds except incoming phone calls? I need to keep my phone next to my bed tonight for work purposes and don't want to listen to my normal notifications all night. I do need to have the phone ring though.

    Think if u use the toggles to turn off notifications, you still get calls.
    Test it

    I don't see a "notification" toggle. What toggle are you referring to?

    Android is a tune up sports car with custom interior, sound system, and IOS is a stock model benz

    I use Android, because unlike IOS, i keep my apps in app drawers, and not infinitely cluttered homescreens

    Blocking mode isnt a toggle switch on my Note 2. It's under general settings. Tbis is what i use when I sleep so that it doesnt wake me unless it's urgent. You can also set which phone numbers get through and which don't.

    Yeah on s3 you set up the times etc in settings but theres a toggle in the pulldown.
    I feel bad for the people who use driving mode tbh..

    Blocking mode is a new JB feature.
    For some reason theyve removed toggles for driving mode + notifications
