Silence your iPhone at night, but still let certain people ring through. (Similar to Blackberry exceptions.)
A friend of mine is finally leaving the Blackberry for her very first iPhone, but she was concerned about missing the one feature that she loved on her Blacbkerry: the ability to create EXCEPTIONS.
What this means is that she can SILENCE her ringer when she goes to sleep at night, but she can set an EXCEPTION for her important family members so that they will ALWAYS ring through no matter what (in case of an emergency).
The way to easily imitate this functionality on the iPhone is very easy, and is outlined by Richard K. Miller on his blog here.
This is the simple process, in a nutshell:
1. Simply download a silent ringtone and set that as your default ringtone before you go to sleep at night.
2. But for any family members that you want to ring through, go into their contact card and set them to have their own audible ringtones. (This is a one-time setting for your family members; you don’t have to change this setting on a daily basis.)
3. Then, when you wake up in the morning, change your default ringtone back to an audible ringtone again.
