Rejecting Calls with Do Not Disturb

Do Not Disturb (DND) enables you to set your phone to automatically reject calls when you don’t want to be interrupted.

When you enable DND, you see the following:
  • The DND icon displays in the status bar.
  • When the phone is idle, the DND icon displays next to your phone line.
  • When the administrator enables hybrid line registration on the phone, you can choose All to enable DND on all the registered lines.
  • If you have new messages or you have enabled call forwarding, the messages or forwarding icon display instead of the DND icon.
Note: When you set your presence status to Do Not Disturb and enable DND on your phone, a message stating that your status is set to Do Not Disturb scrolls under the time display, and the DND icon does not display in the status bar.

Enable Do Not Disturb

You can enable DND to prevent your phone from ringing and to send all incoming calls directly to voicemail. All calls you receive while DND is enabled are logged in the Recent Calls list.

Enabling DND on shared lines disables ringing only. A visual notification of the call still displays, and you have the option to answer or ignore the call.


  • Do one of the following:
    • Tap DND on the Home screen, if enabled by your system administrator.
    • Navigate to Settings > Features > Do Not Disturb, and select Enable.

Disable Do Not Disturb

You can disable DND when you are ready to resume receiving calls again.


  • Navigate to Settings > Features > Do Not Disturb and select Disable.
