    Is there any way to turn the phone call ring tone off but keep notifications and other sound settings on? When I turn the ring tone down to vibrate or off, it automatically turns everything else off too, but I'd like to be able to temporarily silence ONLY the phone call ring tone (without changing the ring tone to "silent" every time I'd like it set this way).....

    There's probably a better way, but the only thing off the top of my head that I could come up with is creating an audio file with no sound to it, and using it as your ringtone. But that would be a pain to go back and forth with

    You can do that with a notifications app. I've used Light Flow Pro and Sound Profile+volume Pro at different times. There are free versions of both in the Play store. I liked LightFlow for the customization and the LED control, but Sound Profile for the simplicity when I just want to create sound profiles or mess with volume control.

    LightFlow has a lot of features, but it's not very intuitive and the documentation is lacking. Once you bump your way through it, LightFlow gives you the kind of control that you used to have with BeBuzz/BerryBuzz on the old BlackBerry OS.

    Sound Profile doesn't do as much, but is a lot easier to use. Google changed the notifications scheme in Lollipop to combine the audio notifications for phone and apps into a single control. This splits it back into separate controls for ringtones and apps.

    Press the volume button, when the sound bar comes up on the top of the phone just turn ringtone down to nothing, media, notifications, and system are separate.

    You're correct. But with you set the ringtone to vibrate, it silences everything else as well.

    You're correct. I seem to remember being able to silence the ringer but hearing notifications in my earpiece.
    I guess I was wrong.

    One solution would be to get a "Silent" ringtone. (Set that as the default ringtone)

    Cheers,
