Let’s proceed to that. 

Do not disturb on iPhone

On iphone, if do not disturb mode is enabled calls won’t go through but both sms text messages and imessages will get delivered. If the iPhone has an active voicemail, all calls will be redirected straight to the voicemail. 

If there’s no voicemail enabled on the iPhone, what the caller will see will be user busy. 

However, this is only if the caller called only once. If the caller happens to call back once again after one or two times, the call will go through.
