I may be slow, but I can't figure out how to silence a notification when I get a text. When I do, I have a 30 second ringtone which I use to increase the chance I hear it if I don't have the phone on me. But, there are times where I have it right next to me and would like to silence it rather than play the entire ringtone. The only thing I've been able to do is open the response box and type and send something quickly. Any ideas?
This isn't so much an issue or bug as it is something that's not been implemented in most, if not all android devices but we will go ahead and call it an issue. I work for VZW and my manager actually came to me with this issue and wanted me to look into it. I tried on my Dinc, a droid x, a samsung fascinate and a droid. None of them would silence an SMS notification by hitting any physical buttons or soft buttons. Customer service over the phone didn't even have any info on it. Best recommendation is to just use a short tone. I really don't see this being fixed or implemented any time soon to be honest
