    I have a few friends that don't understand that my phone is never turned off. I've received more than my share of wake-up texts at all hours.
    Is there a way to keep texts and calls from coming in during certain hours? I tried the Silent Time app but it either doesn't work or I don't know what I'm doing.
    Thanks.

    Why not just turn your volume to silent?

    That.

    When I lay down, my volume goes to silent.

    Enable "Blocking Mode". You can set what you want to disable and when.

    I don't have a home phone. If my family needs to reach me this is the only way.

    I saw this when I was Googling potential answers. I thought it was on the S3 but not the 4? Can you tell me how to access this? Thanks.

    Blocking mode won't work if you have Verizon.

    I use Ring Scheduler -- free and very simple to use.

    I also use blocking mode. My wife, work, and close family are on the exclusions list and are the only calls/messages allowed between 12a and 7a.

    llama in the play store. Little confusing at first but once you figure it out there is nothing it can't do.

    Do not disturb mode is a grest app. I can set a schedule, and allow only certain contacts can get through.

    Blocking mode did not offer enough options for me.

    For the last few years I have been happily using an app called "Bedside". It works really well and allows you to set up whitelists for who can call.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rd.bedsidepro2

    I've recently uninstalled it though. The latest Light Flow update includes a sleep mode option...which lets you set certain people/notifications as "allowed through sleep mode". Then there's a Light Flow widget for sleep mode that I hit before bed, which basically blocks anything that's not allowed through sleep mode. It works just as well as what Bedside was doing for me, and I didn't need an extra app.

    Man if only texts could wake me... That little bing just doesn't do. It takes a few rings of a phone to wake me up :P.

    NFC Task Launcher. Does more than just NFC. You can set time based events too. I have weekday bed, weekday awake, and same for weekends but different times. Turns off notification sound and light but allows phone calls to ring.

    Neither do I. Once my ringer goes off, everybody has to wait. Just like when im at work in a plane.

    Tasker. I have a task set up to go to silent mode between 10 PM and 6 AM while charging. I always set the phone on my Qi charger before bed, so it goes to silent mode as soon as I dock it.

    Sorry-Do Not Disturb worked the best out of all the suggested ones, at least for me. I used the free version until I was sure it was what I wanted. Then I paid for the premium version. It has already been good to me, you set what times you allow calls/texts from everyone, and they are muted until you take off the program, wake up, etc. And you can let those calls/texts that are important through 24/7.

    Does this DND app work with Whats App too? I have Blocking in mode in use BUT I STILL get woken up by Whats App AND emails!! Pain in the ***! I bought Lightflow before but it I found that some TW features didn't seem to work with it installed.

    Having installed sand tried it, yes it does. It's a pity Samsung spends so much time developing their crap bloatware when they can't even get something simple like Blocking Mode to actually block the stuff you don't want. Despite having blocking mode enable I still get damn notifications about emails and Whats App at 3am. With this, simple, free App, I don't. Way to go Samsung, I'd agree with your recent announcements that you are not good at designing software!!
