Silencing your Nokia 3 with priority ringtones

Since the Lollipop version of the Android system, ringtones are now managed by priority modes.

For example, someone who does not wish to have ringtones at all, such as an operator in an operating room requiring silence, will have an interest in selecting ‘No Priority’ or equivalent in this menu. As such this operator will not have ringtones, vibration or even light from his screen.

Priority modes are available through the ‘Settings’ menu, available from the main screen of your Nokia 3. Once in this menu, you can go down to the ‘Sounds and notifications’ menu, then to ‘Ringtones’. In this last menu of your Nokia 3 you will have a choice between these three options:

  • No ringtone: no vibration, no ringtone or even no lighting up screen.

    Even the alarm clock and other emergency messages from your Nokia 3 will be disabled.

    Through this mode, your Nokia 3 is completely silent.

  • ‘Priority’ mode: with this mode you deactivate all ringtones except alarms and other notifications.

    This option is very handy to turn your Nokia 3 into an alarm clock for instance.

  • Mode ‘All’: the silent mode of your Nokia 3 is deactivated.

It is also possible to program the silent mode on your Nokia 3. To do this, go to the ‘Priorities’ tab of your smartphone as in the previous paragraph. At the bottom of this screen you will have the choice of programming a priority at a given time.

This is very convenient for example to automatically set an alarm clock on your Nokia 3 before bedtime.
