After many years of "practice" I have mastered "ignore" in my own way.  It's amazing what one can accomplish.

Absolutely not! I'll ignore calls from friends. But why would I put it on DND when the name of the game is to get the phone to ring?

I turn off my ringer and place into silent mode and usually move it from my desk or work area. Removing the sounds allows me to focus without the constant sound disrupting me.

I wouldn't know how to do that. The only times I silence my phone if when I am with clients or at a meeting. Other times... it's a question of whether or not I choose to pick up.
