Why is Do Not Disturb not working?

I still get calls coming through in iOS 11.2.1 on my iPhone SE, and when it's connected to my Mac or via Bluetooth in my car.

What's going on?

I’ve never been able to understand what calls DND lets through and what calls it doesn’t.

There are several settings for who, when, etc. Are you sure none of them are allowing through some calls?

Not sure. How do I find out?

I decided to peek, and it’s in Settings>Do Not Disturb.

I apparently have it set to let calls from Favorites through, though I feel like other calls have made it. Possible I had forgotten to turn DND on and just thought I did.

But in my Settings > Do Not Disturb > Phone > Allow Calls From: mine has been set to "No One."

However, I see a bit of small print that says: "calls and alerts that arrive while locked..."

What about when my iPhone is NOT locked?

Then they’ll ring.

There should be an option to choose between that and always silence.

There’s also an option to let people through if they’re hammering your phone.

Well then that's getting reported to Apple as well.

Speaking of Do Not Disturb, not having an indicator it’s on with the iPhone X is just a ****ed idea.

When DND is on, I don’t really give a shit about location services, because my location is my goddamned bed. Put it there.
