    Default How do I turn off the ringer, but keep the vibration?

    If I am in a meeting for example, I want to turn off the ringer but I want the phone to vibrate. If I turn off the sound on the lock screen, the vibration doesn't work. Thanks for any feedback.

    The app Quick Settings lets you set it the just vibrate. I'm sure there are others just the one I use

    The physical button on the right-side of the phone (while unlocked). Just hit the volume down. Second from last lowest is vibe only, lowest is just mute.

    This is what I really like about the Droid, easily being able to use the volume up/down buttons to quickly make it vibrate only.

    I was worried not having profiles like on Blackberry would stink but this is fine.

    Still stunned with the lack of intelligence by most posters. Have you even used your phone for 5 minutes before asking some of these questions? LOL.

    most motorola phones have the volumn up/down control to set vibrate. I have beautiful widgets which has a vibrate widget. i also use home++ which has a dock bar that lets u toggle between volume/silent/vibrate. And im sure there are free widgets as well that let u toggle to vibrate, just search the market. Lastly, maybe a future version of the lock screen will allow toggling vibrate as well, or making this available in a setting. multiple ways to do the same thing, pick your poison

    2 good free widgets are beautiful vibrate and beautiful silence. They are free but minimal to what beautiful widgets is (same developer and both included in beautiful widgets).

    I really want to be that guy who comes in and says "Come on man, don't bash on the noobies for asking stupid questions"...but I can't. Every cell phone I've ever owned, with the exception of the berries, has had the "turn the ring volume down to vibrate" feature.

    Are people that terrified of pushing buttons to see what they do? Get in there and molest that phone a bit...find out what all the buttons do.

    If you want to set your phone based on Locations(GPS, Time, Wifi) you can use Locale to do this.

    I now use the Beautiful Widgets vibrate widget, but I also used Ring Toggle which is free on the market and its works great as well.

    I just turn off the sound then going into settings and put then put my messages on vibrate. That works best for me. buts its pretty annoying. The beautiful widgets are no longer there, so hopefully there will be a nice replacement from it.

    I see this forum is the same as crackberry when it comes to bashing anyjuan who asks a question about their new phone.

    It should be noted that blackberrys don't have the volume down to vibrate function.

    I just found a great "settings" app. Its called "ear". It has user configurable profiles for ring tones, vibrate, notifications, etc .. and a nice ui. It sits in the notification tray and shows you which profile is active.

    I have profiles for Work (quiet rings), Car (very loud settings), home (med settings), etc ...

    Just swipe the notification bar and press Ear. Then select a profile .. perfect for me.

    I use beautiful Widgets and it also comes with a "toolbar" which includes a vibrate widget and a silent widget.

    Also if u just want to customize certain alerts just change the ringer to silent and keep the vibrate checked.

    While its true you can just push the button on the side to get it. It would be really nice if there was a setting that you didn't have to unlock the phone. I was thinking the same thing as the guy who asked the question. Why do i have to unlock the phone and then turn it to vibrate when there is a silence on the lock screen?
