I've scheduled my phone for "Do Not Disturb" for 9 - 6 every night. I can receive calls from favorites, which I want. But I don't get texts from favorites during that time (or rather I get the text, but no audio alert). Is there a way to enable audio alert for texts from favorites during "Do Not Disturb" hours?

Unfortunately the only way you can get Text notifications is by selecting "Only while iPhone is locked" in the appropriate setting for Silence - and then making sure your phone is unlocked during that period.

Thanks, CarolineM... kinda what I figured. But a question... if I'm listening to something (like NPR) on an app (like TuneIn Radio), while "Do Not Disturb" is on, but the screen has gone blank, is the phone locked or unlocked?

Yes, when the screen has gone completely black, it is locked. You can, of course, choose how long before this happens by changing the time under Auto-Lock (which is now to be found under Display and Brightness).
