You have to change it in the settings. You can have vibrate or silent. If you want both you have to get a widget. I use the one from curvefish.

If you hold down the power button, there is an option for silent mode. -droidosis-

Yeah I can't really figure out how to get my vibrate to work... i turn it all the way down. I'm just wondering what settings need to be on in the sound settings for this to work, and I'm not concerned if it causes me to have no silent mode. It's just annoying that it won't give a sound when i get a text.

Should Silent mode be checked? And should Vibrate be set to Always, Never, Only in Silent mode, or Only when not in Silent mode? Whatever causes vibrate for texts and no loud ring is fine by me.

how do you know this is anything different than the vibrate mode? turning your volume all the way down gives the vibrate and the icon. this method you mention results in the same icon. so, you have confirmed they work differently despite showing the same icon?

Yeah that way just gives you the same results.

The only way to get total silent mode is by going to menu>settings>sound>vibrate>never or only when not in silent mode

Or get a widget.

2.2 changes your messaging settings...gotta go to Messaging -> Settings -> Vibrate -> Always. For some reason they thought it would be funny to default it to never.

but I dont want my messages to "always vibrate" - plus, this is less about that then it is the fact we use to be able to select from volume levels + silent + vibrate with the volume switch on the side of the phone and now we can only do volume levels + vibrate.. they dropped the silent from that option

Yeah that's the best I can get...either way it is really annoying. It was the simplest thing possible to allow the volume rocker to control sound on, vibrate, and silent. I don't see what made them think it would be easier or make more sense to get rid of that.

I'm rooted and have tried a few different ROMs and none have addressed this yet. Honestly it's just easier to use a widget like the one from Curvefish.

shocking that a widget can trigger the true "silent" (no vibrate) mode and yet custom ROMs - with all of their hundreds of custom settings - cannot. wowsers. I thought I saw it once in one of Pete's?

Get a widget to do it for you, this is the best one: Ring Toggle. Search for "ring toggle" in the market. Very simple app, press it, it comes up with a menu of sound choices, select what you want (Vibrate, Ring & Vibrate, Vibrate Only, or Silent) and it sets it and closes itself. -droidosis-

I DO think it is dumb that we need an App (and multiple touches) to do what the phone did natively up until 2.2...very dumb.
But in addition to the widget you mention, as I said in another thread on this topic, check out flip to vibrate or something like that in market. That way just as fast and slick as the rocker switch.

you just flip the phone over and it goes to silent or vibrate depending upon which App (or which setting??) it is on.

I know I'm 7 months late to the party, but I just got the update and I downloaded 'ringer toggle widget' which puts it on ringer, vibrate, and silent. It seems to work

You being late and bumping this thread is what allowed me to find this helpful information. Otherwise. I would still be scratching my head over the no silent option. Thanks!
