  14. 14
    When we select this option, it will take us into the "Interruptions" area
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    We've taken the long way to do this, so next we'll see how we can stop all interruptions and notifications the easy way
    .
    For now, we can see at the top it says, "When calls and notifications arrive", and it currently says "Always interrupt".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Pressing down on this will bring up more options, including "Don't interrupt", which will turn off everything
    .
    All interruptions and notifications will be stopped from disturbing us. Press down on the words "Don't interrupt", which is the bottom option.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    The menu for "Don't interrupt" will display, where we can select a period of time period for this option to be active
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    We're going to select "Indefinitely", but to choose a different time frame, we can just press down on one of the other options
    .
    For example, if we want 2 hours, we'll press down that option, and the green circle will appear to the right. That means it has been selected.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Press down anywhere on the "Indefinitely" line and the green circle will appear to the right
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    After making a selection, press the "OK" button, at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Now, it says "Don't interrupt"
    .
    As mentioned before, this is the longer way to set this up. Let's do it the quick way now.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    First, press the Volume button on the right-hand side of the phone
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    We're given three options, but the display box will disappear very quickly
    .
    Therefore, we will need to press the Volume button again. When we get the display back on our screen, we'll see the word "NONE" highlighted in green. This means that nothing is allowed to enter or disturb us.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    When we can press down on the word "NONE", we will see the words "No interruptions
    .
    Not even alarms", displayed in red. This is the same option we just previously set up, which is turning everything off so nothing or disturb or interrupt us, as it says "Don't interrupt" at the top of the screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    This is the same option
    .
    There are just two different ways of finding it. We can either find it through the Settings menu, or we can press down on the Volume button located on the right-hand side of the phone.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
