I can't - I'm on call every other week. I use  night mode. I put my phone to night mode (disables data radio/WiFi/GPS - turns off emails/auto-sync = dumb phone mode) from 8 PM - 8 AM (on weekdays that I'm on call). I'll get paged (via SMS/Text) or called if something comes up. Otherwise I love dumb phone mode - I usually have 60-75% battery when I sleep. I can always disable night mode if I need to use the phone for surfing the internet/GPS/etc.

should probably add an option to the poll, for i do nothing different at night.

 

I dont do anything with my phone at night other than set it on the night stand next to me.

Manually mute, as per work requirements once a month I need to be on duty during weekends and have to answer, regardless of time.

I manually mute notifications but leave the ringer on. I don't have a land-line phone, so my cell is the only way to get in touch with me. So I leave the phone on for emergencies. There is probably an easy/automatic way to mute the notifications but not the ringer in Android, but I don't know it.

I just turn off WIFI/data, that gets rid of most notifications,  usually nobody texts/calls me at night, just for emergencies.

wow, I can't believe how many people don't mute anything. maybe it's just my phone but it would be so noisy I would never get to to sleep.

No, the only reason anyone would call me after midnight would be if it were an emergency or something important. I wouldn't want to miss such a call.

I manually mute my phone, never thought about looking to automate it, I'm installing the app and will give it a go.

 

Thanks for the thread, I have forgotten a few times and I'm a pretty light sleeper so any buzz or tone wakes me up.

I've got a nice little app called Llama, working on location and time profiles.

So when I'm at work the phone goes into silent mode, same when it turns 11pm, all I get is the notification light flashing, then at 7am everything turns back to normal.

 

This is still the one feature that I wish iOS would include.  DND is good but it needs more.

Never.Being an Emergency Physician, I don't have the luxury of turning it off, or even make it silent.

I am also one of the rapid response team and qualified in disaster management.

My phone is always on vibrate unless I'm on the golf course or something.  But my alarm doesn't get muted by it.

I either leave things the way the phone is during the day, or I have the phone on vibrate overnight.

Personal phone goes on mute when I go to bed, work phone stays on, I only need to leave it on when I'm on call, but I always leave it on in case of any major emergencies.

I just turn it off when going to bed, if it's an emergency, there's a cabphone in my truck or my landline when I'm at home, don't need my mobile ringing when I'm trying to sleep as well

I mute it all.. I used to leave it on, but I'm a very light sleeper and was tired of being disturbed. Sometimes I leave the ringer on but notifications off, if I am expecting a call or know someone is out late and might conceivably need to ring for help or something. Otherwise, whatever is going on can wait until the morning.

Rarely. Calls are by far the least common thing that happens on my phone and notification sounds don't wake me up even with my phone right near my pillow.

Do you get notifications for absolutely every little thing then?

 

I get stuff for SMS, Facebook Inbox, Whatsapp and personal Email. Usually when i'm sleeping everyone else will be too!
