    On ALL the time. DND at night with only calls allowed. How else can some one reach you in case of emergency?
    This. Set DND to only allow favorites. Phone is never off and can still be used for alarms.

    My phone stays on all the time. If I am not using it, it is on the wireless charging stand in my den.

    Reading threads on overnight issues like battery drain, etc, I find myself wondering if I'm the only person left who just turns off their phone at night. Phone gets a reboot daily, battery gets used about 1/3 less than if always on.... Am I the only one?
    No; I charge it full, turn it off and leave it in the living room.

    Clueless to the age of people on this forum but I've got a feeling the answers are a bit dependant on age group.

    Age and circumstance. We all do things differently.

    I've never shut any of mine off in the15 years I've had a phone. I do however have it on DND and only allow my favorites to contact me at night.

    I am 35 and leave it on because it's my only phone. I use my Amazon Echo for an alarm clock. My parents are older and my sister has some health issues so there is no way it's ever going off in case something was to happen. It's not about me being able to do anything for them (because I know nothing about being a field doctor lol), it's just being there for them. That is all that is important.

    I don't. It's my only p phone. I don't have a landline, so I need to keep it on in case of family emergency.
    Same here.

    Same here, DND with a couple of custom rules and I only restart the phone every other week or so.

    I keep mine on just in case of emergency calls. But it's on silent, battery saver, and Do Not Disturb.
    If you have it on DND, doesn't that mean you won't get even emergency calls?

    You have options. I have it set where my starred contacts can get through (wife, parents, etc.) and repeated calls (calls twice in less than 15 minutes). That's good enough for me.

    Exactly and you can fine tune DND a bit more if needed. The repeated calls option was very useful once when my son lost his phone and had to use a friend's. Very often teenagers are still partying when parents went already on DND mode

    I don't think it's much about age but from what I'm seeing here and the comments in blog citing this thread most people keep it on.

    Agreed. It's not much about age and fortunately there are some very easy options to filter what can bypass your DND mode. The only "price" is a tiny battery percentage if the phone is unplugged.

    There are many reasons for every age to keep the phone always on. Young people don't switch it off as a basic principle, ever. Kind of a religious thing, almost And most people have parents, children, loved ones, jobs, business or whatever that could need an emergency call at some point. Set your favourites and a couple more rules and DND will work as a charm.

    This is my set up as well. It works for me.

    Horses for courses I guess. The beauty is having the choice.
    Mine stays on, silent mode on charger. Only notifications I ever allow is messages and calls. Anything else, I check when I want to know

    I never turn it off - use it as an alarm and in-case of any emergency calls. I also leave the WiFi running in case I want to check emails in bed. Battery drain just not an issue at all with my Sony XA2
