    Default Moto X: vibrate to silent

    Anyone else having issues with how easy it is to set your ringer one click too far and set it on silent, when you intended to place it on vibrate? I miss my old Backberry's switch that turned the ringer off and vibrate on. I wish there was a way to inactivate the silent mode. Anyone have thoughts?

    I don't have an x, but can you set it by long pressing the power button with the screen on? I can do it with my note. Or you can put a widget on the home screen or in the notification bar

    If I am understanding you correctly, you do not want the phone to accidentally go into silent when you are pressing the volume down key. I don't know if there is a way to fully lock that option out, but you can use an app like "volume locker" from the play store which you can set to require a confirmation of any volume change, and have it revert to the previous volume automatically if you do not confirm.

    Instead of repeated presses hold down volume key and it stops at vibrate

    I downloaded some widgets by DROIDMANIA, one of which is a ringer widget that make using the volume rocker for this purpose obsolete.

    Just search "DROIDMANIA widgets in the play store"
