Let important contacts make your phone ring even on silent

It is often important to put our phone onto silent but then we can forget to put the sound back on. And then an important (to us) contact rings but we don’t know.

On an Apple phone, tap the phone icon and then find the contact you want. Now edit → ringtone and turn the emergency bypass on.

For Android, select the contact and then make a favourite by the heart at the bottom or the star at the top. Once you have got the favourites you want, go to the phone settings → sound and vibration→ do not disturb. Now scroll down and set ‘notify about ‘from starred contacts only’. At least that’s how it goes on my phone. You can also ask to be notified if the same number rings back within fifteen minutes.

Just remember that your phone is now no longer totally silent at that funeral.
