    I’ve been missing Quiet Hours ever since I got this phone!
    Much Thanks for this very clear & informative article, I only wish that these features were not so hidden!

    Unfortunately, there seems to be no way to edit the automatic text reply. The default is inappropriate for me. I am not busy, I am sleeping! The current message implies I’m ignoring the call, which makes clients unhappy.

    Agreed! We should be able to edit the text message to send an appropriate text reply.

    What an excellent web-site. Sorted out my problems in no time, with clear instructions. However, I agree about the lack of edit facilities for the text message auto reply.

    The history of this feature has been fraught with difficulty and frustration for Win10 users. The latest update solved the problem of Cortana ‘loosing’ the breakthrough list, but another problem is now revealed – the breakthrough list simply doesn’t work. I only found this out the hard way and also found that the same issue exists on my Win 8.1 phone (Lumia 530). Despite having already set up my Win 10 phone (Lumia 650) exactly as outlined above, people calling during my automatic and manually set quiet hours simply do not get through. I’ve hunted high and low for any additional setting but cannot find anything on either phone.

      I experienced the same problem.
      No ringing is heard when someone on my the breakthrough list ring my phone during my Quiet Hours..
      The phone delived a message stating: this person has called during quiet hours.
      …Bad surprice!…

    Nice instructions, I couldn’t work out how to get this to work in W10 mobile so thanks very clear, I think this is a very well designed feature in W10 Mobile and very useful thanks

    Great article, just what I needed.

    Quiet Hours is missing one thing, configuring per SIM card. I’ve got a two SIM phone and one SIM is for the office when I’m on call. I wish I could “quiet” my personal SIM while letting every call from the office SIM go through.
