How To Use LG G5 Silent Mode (Do Not Disturb)
For those that own a LG G5 and want to activate the Do Not Disturb mode, we’ll explain below. Some are having troubles trying to find Do Not Disturb mode, the reason for this is because on the LG G5, the Do Not Disturb mode is actually called Silent Mode. The reason for this is because “Silent Mode” blocks calls and notifications and it’s also because Apple iOS devices have the name for Do Not Disturb, and Android can’t use the same name for this feature.
The way that Silent Mode works on the LG G5 helps your smartphone from ringing when you’re in a meeting, on a date or sleeping.

How to set up LG G5 Silent Mode
Below the Features section, you’ll be able to select the types of alerts and sounds that are blocked just like the Do Not Disturb style feature on the iPhone and iPad. It’s suggested to select Block incoming calls and turn off notifications. If you are using the LG G5 as an alarm clock do not check the box to Turn off alarm and time.
The final area of options for the Silent Mode is to allow specific contacts to reach you while in Silent Mode. You can either block everyone, select the favorites or a custom contact list to contact you. For those that select Favorites, this means anyone in your contact list with a star at the top can contact you. When you create a custom list, you can add a custom list at the bottom of the Do Not Disturb page.
It’s important to note that the Silent Mode will not stop from blocking a repeat caller that you do not want to talk to on the LG G5. To do that you will need to add the number to your contacts, click on the three dots in the upper right and then add the contact to the reject list.
