    as stated in the title -

    I've recently started using do not disturb, but with the exception of my favourites being able to contact me,

    but no joy.

    i have selected favs, but when someone from my favs contacts me, it is still silenced - and not displayed on phone, unless i wake the phone from standby.

    has anyone else experienced anything similar ?

    many thanks

    Only calls will come through. iMessage/SMS will not. Those will still be silenced and won't wake your phone.

    "when someone from my favs contacts me"

    Text or phone calls? Because the switch is "Allow calls from" also says "Incoming calls", so, yeah, text messages will not trigger anything.

    Ditto e-mail notification tones. And pretty much anything that does notifications.
