Just a quick suggestion I ran into and hope it can help some, if you want a different DND Group then your Favorites, create a New Group on www.iCloud.com website and name it Do Not Disturb Group. I fumbled with different apps trying to create new Groups till I stumbled across this simple work through.

why dont you test it out for yourself and see what happens? Or do you not have a current phone to do so? I can't imagine the stock alarm not working, I thought this feature was for just normal alerts such as phone, email, text.
Does apple every release like a manual of sorts on these features or do they just let you blindly stumble upon the answers?

It worked for me last night using the native alarm clock. No SMS, or emails or tweets came through,
They were waiting for me when I woke up.
But I had to give up using the app Alarm Clock to make it work since the phone has to be locked to enable DnD. Consequently, no clock display during the night. Hopefully the app will be updated.

I wish it would silent other sounds too, like the screen lock, typing, game sounds, etc. I use the phone a bit when going to sleep, and the sounds bother my wife, so I put it in silent mode. I was hoping the DND would silence the local input sounds too, but no luck.

I put my phone on "Do Not Disturb" and used my mom's phone to call my phone. The call still went through, even though I set it to "Do not accept calls from anyone."
Edit: Nevermind. Found out that the phone has to be locked in order for this to work.

Since we have DND function now, there is no real point of turning off the sound switch during the night. However, when the alarm goes off in the morning, the vibration makes a crazy noise on my desk. I have set to have my iphone vibrate when sound is on and do not vibrate when silent... Obviously, DND does not makes the iphone stop the vibration.
So is there a way to keep the vibration for receiving calls, emails etc etc but to remove the vibrations for alarms??? Or remove vibration during DND?
I guess I could just filp the switch but if there is an automated way, would be nice!

Ah Yes, a lot a work to program it!!! A switch button and/or entering times is very hard. Geez Apple, make it simpler!
