HTC Sense 7.0 - Priority Ringtones

Continuing observations regarding the new HTC Sense 7.0 features it's time to take a look at another very interesting aspect of the new HTC user interface - the Priority Ringtones. Priority Ringtones probably replaced the "DND" (Do Not Disturb) function as I can't find it any more in the Quick Settings menu. So how does it work?

To configure the Priority Ringtones you need use volume buttons. The volume slider UI is similar to the one known from the HTC Sense 6.0, however at the bottom of the box you can find 3 new buttons - "NONE", "PRIORITY" and "ALL". Volume settings menu after clicking the settings icon on the right part of the box looks exactly the same as in previous Sense version.


None

Using the first option - "NONE" simply means you will receive absolutely no sound notifications. Not even the alarms. In that mode your device is not allowed to give any sound. You can set this mode to be active for a particular time (15min, 30 min, 45 min, 1h, 2h, 3h, 4h, 8h) or indefinitely, meaning it will be active as long as you disable it.


Priority

In Priority mode you can basically choose what type of events, reminders, calls or messages (and from who) are allowed to interrupt you. You can choose to receive calls or messages from everyone, contacts only or favourite contacts only. You can also configure the days the priority mode is enabled by default (from Monday till Sunday) and hours - start hour and end hour.



All

The "ALL" mode simply means you will receive every kind of notification. In this mode everything gives a sound - alarm, phone call, message, notification, reminder etc. This mode is enabled by default.
