Yes I do, but it is asleep like me. I have it set that if I get a repeated call from someone, then it will ring.

I don't have AR set to ping me though, that would be too distracting to my day.

Yes, for a variety of reasons having nothing to do with work.  My phone also automatically goes to silent mode (except for phone calls) at 945pm when I'm home.  It isn't a problem for me.  I also have a landline in my bedroom as well, with the ringer turned off.  If I need help in the middle of the night, I want to make sure that help is within arms reach!

NO. And the phone is shut off. That 3am call is coming in at 5. Unlikely we would get a family emergency. Plus, you haven't lived till you get a 1am VM from some random child making unveiled inuendos from a Foursquare check in. No more 4Sq checkins, either. LOL
