    When I have my phone face down it goes to silent mode so I can't hear my rings. Is there a way to turn this off?

    The reason this bothers me is because when the phone is in my pocket it sometimes doesn't ring..... Kind of important lol

    PS I am not talking about the "quiet ring on pickup" feature.

    Thanks in advance!

    Wow, good question! I assumed that could be turned off, but I also cannot find a setting for that.

    Settings > sounds & display > quiet ring on pickup > uncheck...I think.

    Like I said in my first post, NOT the quiet ring on pickup feature. I'm talking about the face down silent mode. I don't think there is an option for it.

    As soon as your phone starts ringing proximity sensor senses that its close to something, assumes its your hand then quiets the ringer. So yes i agree it is this setting you need to change.

    I guess I'm missing something, when I lay my phone face down it is not in silent mode.

    I remember reading about now this works in that massive user guide. Take a look in there.

    I just searched the manual for the term silent and found nothing about the phone going into silent mode when face down. Mine does not do this so I am wondering if some 3rd party app is causing the OP results.

    I found this in the guide (page 43):
    Seems like it should only go silent if it's upright and then you flip it over, not if it's facing down already.

    Mine does mute when placing face down during an incoming call but if the phone is face down and a call comes in it does ring.

    This works great to silence an incoming call by just flipping the phone over. I wish we could flip it over in call to activate the speaker phone like the TP2 could. I used that daily.

    It can't be the silent ring on pickup setting. I use the Verizon cover/holster and have the silent ring on pickup on. The holster is setup so the the phone faces inward and is flush facing the holster. If the proximity sensor would activate in that situation. the phone would never ring, but it does. Same would apply to laying it face down.
