    Im looking for a quick way to set pre-set profiles. When I am working I like to turn of my ring tone (leave on vibrate) but leave my message tone as normal. at the moment the only way I can see to do this is to manually turn the ring volume down.
    Now thats pretty simple and only takes a second but I was wondering if there is a way to create profiles instead? On my Nokia E71 for example I have a work profile and a normal profile which I just switch between when I need to.

    If you hold the power button down (like you're going to turn the phone off) a menu comes up with the option for vibrate only or silent modes.

    Yeah but that disables the notification tone as well.

    I will check out the Suppressor app, thanks.

    Well suppressor lets me adjust volumes but it doesn't let me permanently modify profiles so that my preferences are saved. I still have to adjust everything manually each time I want to change profiles since both Silent and Vibrate default to a silent notification.

    Switching profiles is simple, I can just hold the volume down and it switches to silent then to vibrate, I want to change silent or vibrate to my own settings rather than the presets and failing that create a new profile.

    I've put sound and display shortcut on my homepage. I didn't like the hold power button method.

    You can also just hold the volume keys to switch profiles.

    I guess I will have to dig through the market place. I was just hoping someone had found and used an app that did what I needed already :)

    I'll let you guys know if I find anything.

    If you work regular hours (predictable) then Timeriffic will be just what you need. You can set most battery draining features of the phone to switch on or off whenever you want and also set vibrate, notification, ringtone to switch to set levels whenever you want.

    I use it to auto silent my phone each night so I dont get woken by emails and twitters coming in while my phone plays whitenoise sounds at me :)

    I am using an app called "ear" you can set vibe, tones, wifi and bluetooth preferences.
    Coming from Nokia this is the closest I found to their profile settings and in fact beats it.
    A quick pull down from the noticication bar and I can change profile.
    www.ear-project.com or find it on Android marketplace.

    I looked at timeriffic, but I don't work predictable hours or days so its not a lot of good for me and will be a bit high maintenance.

    Ear looked perfect, but again once the ring volume is muted everything else including notifications gets muted, even if I ask ear to keep the notification settings the same.
    In the same way that if you manually set the ringer volume and check the option to keep it independent from the notification volume all is fine until the ringer volume is set to 0 (mute), then it also mutes the notification volume.
    Unless I missing something the only solution I have found is to set the ringer to 1 where it is barely audible, then you can still keep everything else to max. Its not ideal though.

    To be honest I'm really surprised at the lack of audio profile options. Considering you can change desktop scenes it would make sense to be able to create profiles and change them along with your scenes.
