On the back of Discovery's recent Midnight SMS... What do you do with your phone at night? Do you rely on an automated Do Not Disturb setting? Or switch it off? Or leave it on and hope for the best?

Turn off WiFi and LTE and leave it available for calls but no messages.

Between my night watchmen and 300 WA security groups that I'm on, I tend to sleep right through anything.

Our district is security group mad. At least 3 groups are all EXACTLY the same members.

And people still post unrelated info on them followed by EVERY SINGLE MEMBER sending a thumbs up.

Needless to say, EVERY group is on mute and no popups.

No one on your VIP/Important contacts list that will get through?
Yeah, the exclusion list will get through but not when it is on plane + dnd mode. Then I'm away from world and they will have to phone someone else. This is in part work trying their **** with me after hours and over weekends; I should just go dual sim at some stage. *shrugs*.

Auto do not disturb mode, but any repeated calls will ring.
Certain app notifications are also not silenced.

Do not disturb mode (scheduled).

With so many WhatsApp groups, emails etc (Covid-19 side effects) I don't want to risk the chance of being woken up prematurely by some insignificant notification, or someone trying to show they are working long hours.

I follow the recommendations of my overlords at Google's digital well being which turns the screen grey and puts it in do not disturb mode until morning.

It's permanently on silent
When i go to bed the phone lies on the bed next to me as my alarm clock for the morning wake up.
If Im not working next day it stays in the lounge when I go to sleep

Pretty much. DnD 24x7 with a whitelist.
