    A call? I make calls on speaker phone that are really long and the person on the other side gets very annoyed by the constant buzzing. I tried DND but the phone kept vibrating. Is this functionality really nonexistant?

    You have provided very little information. What is causing the vibrating?

    DND works only when the phone is locked.

    So basically your telling us you're very rude when you speak on the phone by placing people on speaker phone. Invest in a headset and show your callers some respect.

    Turn off vibrate. Problem solved.

    Oh, and get a head set.

    Am I being rude to the dust bunnies behind my desk? Because I don't see how placing a call on speakerphone while alone at my home desk is being rude to anyone. And headsets are rude to other people's eyes.

    also DND does not account for people who are in your favorites call list.. so if they call and you have DND on, the phone will still ring

    It is rude because it sounds like crap and annoying as hell to the person that you are talking to when you are on speaker. I refuse to talk to people on speaker. If they do not have enough respect for our call to put the call up to their ear or use a headset, then I don't really want to talk to them.

    That's your preference, but it doesn't make it rude. There are hundreds of reasons why someone might want to be doing something whilst talking, not least that sometimes it gets annoying holding the phone to your head for an extended period of time.

    It sounds like people like you are just snobby little runts that don't like when things aren't perfect, not the other way around.

    It's rude to the person you're talking to. If I'm EVER on speaker phone I ask the other party to please take me off of speaker phone. Of course this is my opinion, you do and treat your callers as you please.


    Nail on the head!

    Yes, it makes it rude to the person being placed on speaker. Like Jwlbel said, have respect for the person to whom you're speaking.

    It's not an issue of things being perfect, it's an issue of respect. Some have it for others, some don't.

    Yes.
    DND is for when you're sleeping or you dont want to be disturbed and the phones screen is locked.
    It will not work when you are using the phone while on a call either. Even if the screen is dim, if you're on a call it will not block another call.

    I talk to my partner who lives 500mi away every single night before bed on speaker phone. I lay day and put the phone on the pillow mext to me.

    And only three nights ago did it come up and he said, "oh, I'm on speakerphone? I couldn't even tell."

    iPhone 5 on Verizon

    Yeah, the quality of the speaker phone on the iPhone 5 is great. Don't get that normal hollow sound. And also surprised how sensitive the mic is. Picks up voice from across the room still.

    In regards being rude. It's only rude if you use the speaker phone when there are others in the room. If you're by yourself, WTH do so many of you think this is rude?
