    Default Any way to silence notifications at night?

    I'm hoping for a way to silence my phone (Verizon Galaxy Samsung S4) at night, specifically just the Notifications. Ideally, I'd like the phone to ring for an incoming call but remain silent for Notifications (messages, emails, etc.) during certain hours, like when I'm asleep at night. I know how to silence the Notifications. The problem with that, as I understand it, is that the Notifications are silenced until I change the setting. What a hassle!! Having to change the settings twice a day... Surely there must be a way to choose when I receive the Notification sounds! If not, how can I suggest such a change to the Android folks?

    Go to Settings >> My Device >> Blocking Mode
    There you can specify which features to block (incoming calls, notifications, and more) at specific times!

    ** I am not sure, but I've heard from some friends, that Verizon has disabled this feature. See if it works for you or not!

    Should be able to accomplish what you want with Automateit. Need 2 rules to do it; 1 with a time trigger to turn your notification stream silent and 1 with a time trigger to turn your notification stream back to your desired volume.

    Sure enough, on my Verizon SG4, Blocking Mode is not available under My Device.

    Take a look at this thread:

    What app are you using to block texts when you are sleeping?

    Download "Night Clock" free in Play store. Can create alarm clock look on screen and dim it etc paid version turns soft button lights off too.

    What about turning off wifi and data when you go to bed and turning it back on when you wake up? You should still have the ability to receive calls.

    Here should be a way to restore blocking mode on the s4. Like the note 2, blocking mode is a feature in the phone, but verizon has deleted the access.

    There is an app in the play store....quickshortcutmaker. Once App is installed just search for blocking mode. The app will find and create a shortcut.

    I don't have an s4 yet. So was unable to confirm.

    Look for Do Not Disturb in the Playstore. It works basically like the iPhone setting where you can have a white list of callers that will ring through and everything else will be silent. Has worked for me so far.

    I use blocking mode every night to stop sounds and still be able to receive calls with ringer on. I also have llama, which is a location based task manager, but it has a ton of features to do whatever it is you need.

    Coming late to the party but was looking for a solution to the same exact problem OP had and came across this thread.

    I just got the S4 about a week ago (April 2014) and I'm happy to report that the Blocking Mode mentioned in this thread is no longer disabled by verizon! Just make sure you toggle it from OFF to ON to access the controls but it is easy to set up and works like a charm. Was using timeriffic app on my old android but it was not working on the S4. Glad they built this feature in natively.

    For ease of referene...Settings > My Device > Blocking Mode.

    Cheers!
