    Default Get Alarm Clocks to work when DO NOT DISTURB is set to "ON"

    I love the DO NOT DISTURB feature on the iPhone5 but I am disappointed that it also (as far as I know) turns off any alams you have set. I'm pretty sure on all my Blackberry's even when this feature was on, the alarm clocks still worked?
    Anyone know how to get the alarms to work when I have this feature "ON" ?
    Note-I did a search and nothing came up about this.

    Same. My alarm still goes off when DND is turned on. It also still goes off when the silent switch is on.

    I just tested this using the manual "Do Not Disturb" setting and it works just fine with the native clock / alarm application.

    Not sure why you're having issues.

    3rd Party apps. If you use a 3rd party alarm clock app, "Do Not Disturb" disturbs... as in does not function.

    Thanks everyone for their quick replies. I was awake yesterday morning when the clock was supposed to go off (music from my iPhone). It did not. But in my Notification it showed- (Alarm, 1 minute ago). This happened one other time last week so I started turning DND off.
    I just did a test on all my clock applications and they DID work with DND "ON"
    Stranger than fiction? Hope it works in the future, especially when I am supposed to get up early to usher at church.
    Thanks again for your replies.

    Do not use your phone as a primary alarm clock for the really important things in life. Seriously.

    And for those wondering why their 3rd party alarm clock apps won't work with DND; developers most likely don't have
    access to DND API's.

    Don't know if this may affect it, but was the volume low in the music app ?

    I really hope that the dev of the app Alarm Clock HD get this to work.

    The app is isleep, I set up my alarms and exit the program. No if you have the clock screen (app open) it will not go into do not disturb. It works fine otherwise, alarm will go off at set time and do not disturb works. Only thing is you will have to shut your alarm off twice, once when you access the phone and once when the app opens.

    Do you manually have to turn off Mail and messages notifications so they don't wake you, or is it just the phone alarm that is silenced?

    There is not a single third party app that handles this issue perfectly outside of Sleep Cycle.

    SC works evenly and exactly as set regardless of whether DND is on, iPhone is muted, iPhone is on home screen and locked, volume turned all the way down, etc etc. The developer responds to email within hours and implements great ideas all of the time..

    Others developers always claim it's Apple's fault as to why they can't handle this, SC figured out how to do it!

    The new craze is Rise, which doesn't cut through all I mentioned above.. leaving SC as the only reliable one in the App Store (their direct contender MotionX Sleep also does not have this reliability.)

    PS - I joined this forum just to respond, as I'm always looking for new alarm clocks!

    Absurd, I trust my several hundred dollar pocket computer over a $10 radio clock any day. They've failed me many times. My phones; any of them; zero.

    OP - Why do you have your phone set to not disturb after you get up?
