so I want some way for people to be able to contact me in the middle of the night without leaving my ringer on, because I sleep random hours and society has given up on not texting everyone literally all the time

is there a good software solution for this or do I just need to buy a prepaid cell and hand out the number

You could just turn off your text tone.

Some phones let you set up a "Do Not Disturb" with only numbers you select able to get through.

that or a setting that if someone calls the second time it will start ringing and let people know to call twice if important. I know it exists but I dunno how to do it

sigh thanks for the brilliant idea but i also get these things we americans call "phone calls which aren't emergencies"

i don't see how vibrate helps here... i either want it to wake me up, because it's an emergency, or not wake me up, because it isn't. vibrate is basically just a less reliable ringtone

optimally there would be an app that let authorized callers flag an emergency call that would override the phone's notification settings

unfortunately the people mostly likely to call me about an emergency (my parents) are also the ones most likely to unnecessarily disturb me

You can set up a Google voice account with a new number and hand that out instead of getting a whole new phone. Or a different sim card but that will become annoying even if it has two readers like most non-us ones as you'll have to take it out.

Really u should have a burner phone too for just like work phone or just social depending which way you want to cut it.

google voice yeah good idea

i'd still rather just have an emergency calls app but that's a lot better than a burner

You can have them use Alexa to place a high priority emergency call to you. She's fucking smart like that bro.

Pretty sure iphones do that already. Just set the do not disturb to come on at certain times. You can make a list of allowed numbers that can get through at those times and tell it to allow ppl from those groups. You can also make it go on do not disturb until you leave a location so you can turn it on at the movies and it turns off automatically when u leave.

There is also a setting that says if the same number calls twice in three minutes it will let it though regardless.

You can also make it auto detect when u are driving and it sets your phone to do not disturb so u wont crash & kill ppl.

if one more elderly person mentions do not disturb settings i will lock thread and move to hof

if i'm taking a nap at 3pm because i worked all night i do not want to be awakened by my mom calling to ask about shoes but if my dad cut his foot off and needs to get to the hospital i need to receive that call

i don't think my phone has this multicall setting but that sounds good too

I had a second phone that only a few people had the number to. They all knew that number was like the bat phone. only call that number when when someone goes to jail, loses a limb, or dies.

I have my text notifications off. If it's not important enough for a call, then it's not important enough to pull me away from whatever I'm doing. I'll check it later when my hands aren't full of titties and money.
