    It is important to note that Cortana is only activated on phones that are in the USA
    .
    If your phone is from outside the USA, Cortana will be installed but not activated. You will need to activate Cortana on your own by changing some simple settings. You can find and watch a how to video on activating Cortana on phones outside USA. This video can be found on VisiHow by searching for it.

    Quiet hours is an application that allows Cortana to control your phone calls or notifications
    .
    This can be used by you to give yourself some quiet and peace. It will allow you to disconnect from your phone and stops the phone from disturbing you. This application's best feature is that you can connect it to applications.

    What we are interested in is "Turn on when I have a calendar event marked busy"
    .
    What this application is going to do is it is going to connect to your calendar and react to the information you input into your calendar. If you have marked a particular day or time as Busy, then Cortana will initiate quiet hours during that time or day. This will pause all your calls, notifications and other information allowing you to be free and to engage with your situation without disturbance. Press the check box to turn it on.
