    Hi y'all. I have an iPhone 5 and I was wondering if there was a way to receive important text message alert sounds while having it on Do Not Disturb. Or is there a separate app for that?

    Is it from a specific phone number? I know you can enable DND but allow contacts come from X, Y and Z to still come through.

    I was testing this out and it looks like it allows calls from certain contacts when DND is enabled but not SMS. All I see online is to request this feature on the feedback form at http://www.apple.com/feedback/.

    I'm sure there are jail broken mods out there that allow this but that's a whole different realm.
