    Default Can't find a sound setting

    I have a cheap no-name 3G phone using Android 4.1.1

    I want to change the sound settings. When I originally bought the phone I set the ringtone etc but now I can't remember for the life of me how I did it because I can't find a setting for sound anywhere.

    When I go to Settings, I get the following:

    WIRELESS & NETWORKS
    SIM management
    Wi-Fi
    Bluetooth
    Data usage

    DEVICE
    Audio profiles
    Display
    Storage
    Battery
    Apps

    PERSONAL
    Location services
    Security
    Language & input
    Backup & reset

    ACCOUNTS

    SUSTEM
    Date & time
    Scheduled power on & off
    Accessibility
    Developer options
    About phone


    BUT no sound anywhere! All the 'audio profiles' does is literally change the audio profile

    I have downloaded the 'Quick settings' app but all this does is toggle silent and vibrate off and on.

    Can anyone help? I'm desperate to switch off the key vibrate.

    Try using this app to create a shortcut to the sound settings menu. Sorry I can't be more elaborate, but it's hard to tell you exactly where to go to find the shortcut you need. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...shortcut&hl=en

    Just tried that. Created a shortcut to 'Sound Settings' but when I open it all I get is the audio profiles again. Maybe I should try a factory reset?

    (Nice app though - thanks!)

    But what exactly is the audio profile? Usually, you can edit an audio profile to set the volumes for rings, notifications, alarms, etc. What screen comes up when you tap Audio Profile?

    You can also try holding the power button down to see if a menu comes up. On many phones, holding the power button down will give you the option to switch silent or vibrate mode on or off.

    I've found how I can edit an audio profile and the settings I was looking for seem to be there! If I tap on one of the audio profiles I can change ring tone and vibrate settings. Thanks for your help - it took a while but I've got there.
