    This sucks. Someone mentioned above that they're taking AWAY functions (easy power-button-mash and vibrate) and making things more difficult. I can't get to just "vibrate". I hit the volume down button and none of those other two options ("Priority" and "none") vibrate the phone during a call or text ("All" does vibrate). Am I missing something? "Also vibrate for calls" is on. Thanks.

    Don't you turn the sound down to none in "All" mode to get vibrate-only?

    Those options (All, Priority, None) are more or less do not disturb options.

    All means there is no option set and everyone will reach you.

    Priority means contacts that are designated priorities within your contacts (you star them at the top of each individual contact card) will break through the profile. Everyone else will be silent.

    None means no one will break through. All silent.

    When you set these up you have 3 options for a time frame. Indefinitely, an hour or your next alarm.

    If you wish to vibrate for everyone, just hold the volume key down til it vibrates. Don't set a profile. Also, one thing to note: if you do set a Priority profile because you want it to ring for certain callers/messages (you can choose if you want both or one), do not change the volume to vibrate. Priority means it will do WHATEVER your volume is set to for PRIOROTY CONTACTS. It will be silent for EVERYONE else.

    When you press the volume key you will see a bell icon next to the volume slider. Press the bell icon to change to vibrate only.
    Never mind, info already given

    I use Volume Ace Free and this app solves my problems and I don't use the LP priority volume because it is too confusing

    Priority isn't all that confusing. I never use third party apps unless necessary.

    In your contacts, set people as favorites or "Priority". You do this by selecting a contact and within their contact card select the STAR at the top right. That's all you need to do in order to set up the contacts. When you want these callers to be the only ones that can set off a notification, you hit the volume up or down key, select Priority and then choose Indefinitely, 1 Hour or alarm timer.

    If you want no one to be able to reach you, select NONE.

    Not much to it, give it a try if you ever want to.

    Does anyone know why since yesterday all of a sudden when my phone goes into sleep mode (setup for the time I have in moto and only changed since yesterday from the moto update) that all of a sudden it shows the vibrate icon up in the top bar, next to the 4G icon. The moon appears on the left and the star next to the vibrate icon. I called it from my home phone and it doesn't ring or vibrate, still shows someone calling, but the vibrate icon is now appearing.

    The star icon and moon always showed up since the 5.1 update (the moon always)

    Not sure but I'd disable the Moto sleep mode and just use Priority notifications. It does the same thing minus the ability to keep the display turned off.

    Hit the volume button up or down and select NONE. This will disable all including alarms. Select for an hour or indefinitely.

    I need a fast way to turn off all sounds and vibrations. I was at a play yesterday and the Facebook pop and vibrations drove my neighbors crazy. .And of course I didn't dare turn off the phone because I feared the droid growl would broadcast.


    I like the volume up/down rocker way of getting to the controls but it should have a no vibration option as well. Any other solutions?

    As I posted above click the volume key and when the slider pops up click NONE. It silences it.

    Nope, that leaves it in vibrate mode.

    Do you put your phone in vibrate first? I just hit Volume Up than select NONE. I don't change my volume from full but rather switch it with that button. I get the no sound icon.

    VIP and non don't get through with even a vibrate.

    When I click none, the vibrate image appears on my top bar or whatever you call it and the phone still vibrates.

    I do have an old app I use for profile settings etc and it seems to work, it is just not as easy as using the volume rocker when you suddenly realize the show has started and you have forgotten to turn off the sound.

    The app is SmartSoundProfiles.

    Of course the thing I would really like is a physical switch that simply breaks the circuit to the speaker and can't be overridden by software.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    D'oh.. I just reread your reply, Eclipse2K. Pulling the slider all the way to the left until the vibrate image shows and then clicking "none" does the trick... Or at least it seems to.

    I don't even have to do that. I just select NONE and its set to silent. But whatever works for you is what you'll need to do.
