    Default Contact with specific tones goes off when on vibrate

    I have a dedicated tone for my wife and when my phone is on vibrate it still makes the tone. Any idea why?

    Go into her contact and under ringtone turn emergency bypass off. This is a new feature in iOS 10. The ringtone will still play even on vibrate if this is selected.

    So when I'm in a meeting and I silence my phone and my wife calls, it will still audibly ring? So I have to go into each contact and turn off emergency bypass on each contact that I have set a ringtone for? Lame.

    If they all set to on then yes unfortunately. None of mine were on by default and I don't use it.

    Do not disturb is different than the switch on the side. Emergency bypass is for do not disturb, the cloud icon when you swipe up. I'm talking about the switch above the volume buttons.

    Yes it works with the switch too. If emergency bypass is selected even when the mute switch is "on" it will bypass and the phone will ring.

    That's how it's setup. This article explains it.
