Moto G5+ DND Off During Calls

2017-09-14, 18:42 PM

I have read extensively about the DND feature, so I do not need help in setting that up, or understanding it.  It is my understanding that it is (now) turned on automatically during calls for those folks who don't want to be constantly interrupted (out have their faces buzzed) while they are on the phone. However, there are those of us who WANT to be notified of calls or texts, regardless if on a call or not, and DO NOT want DND turned on automatically while on calls (i.e. PARENTS). I do not want to download a third party app to account for this issue. I would like Lenovo/Moto/Android to include a toggle, or option, to turn on or off notifications during calls (this is in addition to setting up DND for times/events/reminders/etc in the settings).

Where did you see that DND is on during calls? Unless i have it enabled on my phone, it is off. 

 

Call notifications will only happen if you have call waiting, but texts will show notifications. I just tested on my Z.   As this is an android feature it should work the same. 

 

I have never had Dnd turn on automatically unless set to do so (time, event, etc)

Here are a couple of articles (of many -- not counting the multitude of complaints on various forums), regarding the DND turning on during calls:

If, as the article states, google implemented this in 7.1 then it is not a motorola issue, but a google issue. So your complaint is with google.

 

However, i just tested with a Z2 play and Z2 F orce. Both on 7.1.1. Both on different carriers. Both notify me of text and incoming calls when on a call. I get a beep and a vibration. I had both phones calling each other and used a 3rd line to call and text each phone.

 

I would assume the G5 works similarly, as i don't see it mentioned in the complaints.
