    Any suggestions for an app to allow me to schedule silencing audible notifications on a selective basis?

    I'd like to hear calls and SMS at night but not emails or other sounds.

    I use timmerific but it treats both ringer and notification volumes as one now, either Ics or the gs3 does not support having the ringer and notification volumes separate. I was able to separate them on my og dinc. Maybe tasker?

    I'm sure tasker could do it.

    Silent Time is what I use, but it cannot separate out e-mails vs SMS. But what's nice is that it does have "exceptions" as an option so that calls/e-mails,/SMS from those exceptions in your contacts will go through during the silent time.

    Made the switch from BB to S3 and searched for the bedside mode replacement, found the little program that needs to be switched on and off but works as needed.

    Hope this helps,

    John

    Bedside. It has a nice little widget if you don't want to use the screensaver.

    Timeriffic has an "experimental" section in settings with a checkbox to resolve this issue... it works great for me.

    I took a look at Silent Time but exceptions have to be added individually and I'd have like 150 exceptions that I'd want calls from 24/7.

    I really just don't want to be woken up when 3am junk email comes thru. But I'm a physician and I need my phone calls and texts to get thru any time of night.

    I may just have to schedule data to be disabled at night; that would let calls and SMS through but not emails.

    Bedside worked great on my DInc, but it has not been working right on my GS3. I need to be able to get calls in the night, but I don't want email/sms notifications. Yet, I keep getting woken up by email notifications. I hope this gets fixed soon.

    Why not just change the settings?

    You can alter when emails are synced or pushed according to a peak schedule which you can define.

    Works for me: allow calls/sms option with whitelist -option- for both.

    Personally I don't want emails EVER waking me up. I wish I could whitelist calls but if someone is calling from a payphone or emergency room or something...and SMS I only let my girlfriend wake me with those!

    Thanks. I downloaded Bedside and we'll see how it goes. The only downside I see is having to remember to manually start it, but at least I can set it to auto-deactivate when removed from power (I don't want it to auto-start when I plug it in since I sometimes top off the battery at work or in the car).

    Looks like I can keep calls and SMS but mute everything else. That's enough to make me happy.

    It's been said here a couple of time but I'll say it once more Timeriffic works for this and self starts based on times of day and you can set all kinds of schedules just like an alarm, best of all it is free...

    Except Timeriffic can't separate SMS from other notifications. I need SMS sounds to come thru.

    Tasker would do everything that you are looking for and then some. It is a little on the pricy side and there is a bit of learning curve, but it automates everything that you are talking about. If you go the Tasker route and need help setting up a profile let me know.

    This is the best and simplest option. From 11:30pm to 6:30am I turn off push.

    I keep the bedside widget on my homescreen. Every night before bed I plug in the phone and hit the widget. Good to go.

    I also prefer the widget as I don't use the clock/screensaver of Bedside for now...don't have a dock. My old BB 9800 with the dock is my night clock and backup alarm.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned Llama. It's a profile switcher than can be triggered by events as well as time. You can have pretty granular control over volume, so you could have a nighttime profile which silences notifications but not incoming calls, etc.

    It's similar to Tasker but not as feature rich. (but its also free)

    While it doesn't address silencing at night one thing you may want to consider (if you're not already using it) is the Priority Inbox in the Gmail app. Using that and setting up filters has for the most part eliminated interruptions from unimportant emails.

    I downloaded Llama and the check box to unlink ringer and notification is grayed out, so it still can't silence notifications but let the ringer ring. I don't think.
