It does include texts. It silences everything all notifications, calls and texts, and it's customizable so you can whitelist certain numbers for calls that you do want to come through.I'd like this feature to be for texting too. I text more then i call. So I'd like this feature to be with texting too. Who else is with me?
This is so far behind the times. The Droid has been doing this and I was surprised when my Droid friend said the iPhone doesn't do it.It does include texts.

I agree. There really needs to be a way to shut off all notifications. I mean, no popups, no vibrate--nothing. Shame we don't have that and had yet had it in iOS for the 4+ years prior.DND works for me. The screen does not light up, and there is no sound or vibration when I get a Skype message.
What I would like even better is a sort of airplane mode for notifications, where it disconnects me from the notification servers altogether, the way that the old "Notifications ON/OFF" switch did prior to iOS 5. My overnight battery drain is nigh on unmanageable now, with so many things coming through to the phone constantly from those servers--iMessage, Skype notifications, Facebook notifications, GameCenter requests (BADADADA-DADA! BADADADA-DADA!), etc. Every time I forget to plug in the phone, I've lost about 40% battery in a matter of 6 hours, and this battery drain still occurs with DND on because it's still actually connected and receiving messages. I can airplane mode the whole phone, sure, but then it doesn't get calls, texts, or emails either.
