    I have to use a lock screen with a pin but sometimes I need a quick mute, preferably without entering pin first. In my Razr Maxx HD there is a mute button on the lockscreen. Any way to do it with Note 3? Thanks!

    You can mute sounds when you're getting the notification by long pressing the Volume Down button (i.e. you're getting a call, you can mute the incoming ring by doing this). Note that this will not set the phone to Silent Mode or Vibrate and will only work while getting an incoming notification.

    You could also swipe down on the notification bar (Unless you specify that it won't, it's usually accessible even from the lockscreen) and hit the Sound button to switch to Vibrate or Silent.

    Mine in inaccessible. How do I enable pulling down to mute? Will this allow access to phone without pin by selecting a notification?

    If you have a lock you can't.

    All I can think of is a playstore lockscreen alternative app. I used to use widget something or other lockscreen but it is slow to load and I hate that.

    I use a pattern lock, and when I long press the power button on the lockscreen I can put the phone on mute, vibrate or sound I'm not sure if it works with a pin lock...

    updated...!!! works with pin lock as well

    It does & apparently is my only choice. I had hoped for a lockscreen widget to do it. Thanks though. I will use power button.

    Press the "Emergency Call" button on the bottom of the lock screen and your volume rocker will work like normal.

    Well DUH! I guess I never noticed that because I seldom pwr down. I've been hitting the pin, settings & toggling sound to mute. Thanks for slapping me up side the head!
