    The Pre had the silent mode switch at the top of the phone...

    Does anyone know what setting to set to silence everything (except alarms)?

    As a current Pre user and future EVO owner, I'd also like to know. That silence switch is one of the greatest things ever designed for a phone. I'm hoping there is something even remotely as easy to use on the EVO.

    Was wondering the same thing this morning as the phone interrupted a meeting. Closest thing I have found is either;

    - Holding Volume down till the vibrate kics in

    - Holding power button and selecting silence

    Thinking in a different paradigm though (pre didnt have this out of the box), Ill probably end up with this: http://www.twofortyfouram.com/product.html

    I use Beautiful Widgets from the market, adds a ton of great widgets; including a Silent Mode 1x1 widget.

    I personally prefer the Beautiful Widget Time/Weather widget over HTC's.

    Try:

    Setting Profiles
    or
    My Settings

    Both allow you to quickly change settings via a widget.

    Also if you enable the option to turn the phone over to silence the ringer that is even quicker.

    I downloaded the silent toggle widget by droidmania from the market. One tap set it to vibrate, 1 more to silent, and a final tap back to ringer on.

    Hold down the power button (on top) for several seconds. This will bring up a menu. Change it to the mode you want, whether it is silence or if it is vibrate only.

    I wish there was a quick way to silence it right from the lock screen. Like in stock Android where you slide the left bar to the right to unlock it and slide the right bar to the left to toggle silent mode on/off.

    HTC should add this to Sense. For example, slide up to toggle silent mode, slide down to unlock. Or even have a pull-down tab at the top of the lock screen with toggles for silent mode, wifi, gps, 4g, mobile networks, etc.

    I use a widget called "Simple Sound Profile Widget". It lets you set up a few different profiles, and you just put it on one of your pages. As soon as i get to work, i just hit it and select work and i'm all silent except for media and alarms. Works really well for me.

    Try Lock Menu from the app market. It has up to 8 sliders that go left/right and has a toggle for silencing phone from the lock screen.

    Noone suggested the stock widget? Add widgets, Settings, Profile. It gives you the choice among Silent, Normal, Vibrate.

    the Pre's best silent switch was to throw it against the wall and smash it into a million tiny little pieces.

    I'm told the Evo also comes with that feature.

    I tried it out for a while and had some issues with it. I really wanted to love it but it would lock my screen randomly while I was using the phone. Even while I was texting it would suddenly lock and I would have to hit the power button and unlock it again. It would also cause my home app (LauncherPro+) to unload constantly so whenever I wanted to go back to my home screen I would have to wait for LP+ to load all over again. Even when i checked "keep in memory" for LP+. I hope they're just bugs that get worked out. I really liked the idea.

    I use the Audio Buddy app. It is a great app. You can create sound profiles and even set them on a schedule. The app turns my phone to my vibrate profile at 8 am when I go into work, which saves me from forgetting. After I get off , it automatically changes to my normal profile, and then at night it goes to my night profile, which keeps the ringer on, but turns all other notifications to silent. Having been a previous Blackberry user, this app has allowed me to mimic some of the profile features I had become accustomed to.
