Using Do Not Disturb through a phone via feature access code:

The feature access code for this feature does not change, regardless of phone model or manufacturer.

NOTE: In this guide, off-hook is used to describe when a phone is in use, or has a dial tone before a call is made. On-hook describes when a phone is idle.

  1. Go off-hook.
  2. Dial *78 to activate Do not disturb, or *79 to deactivate Do not disturb.
  3. You will hear an automated message stating "Your Do not disturb services has been activated successfully" or "Your Do not disturb services has been deactivated successfully."
  4. After the message is finished playing, the phone will automatically hang up.
