    They do I think
    Edit: they don't appear to. You need music playing

    I know what you're talking about, I missed that from my Palm Prē!
    Apple, in true Apple fashion copied that from Palm!

    Anyway, on the GS4 press the home button or the power button once, then press the power button again for a second or two and you get this👇

    If you have certain situations or times when you want your phone silenced, on vibrate or with full sound, you can use apps like Llama or Tasker to automate it. I have my phone go silent at work or if it's charging at night and on full volume otherwise. That takes care of >90% of the situations where I have to change my phone volume.

    Yup, that's a good idea too. 👍

    Cheers chaps still not as good as the switch. There are some things that are so handy on the iPhone the silent switch is the main one. Can do it with out taking it out your pocket but will use your suggestion
    So thanks

    Isn't that basically the same as pressing the power button a tad? (Post #2)
