    Confused a little here, and this is probably because I've used an iPhone and BlackBerry for so long.


    If I switch my Samsung Infuse to the vibrate\silent mode, when calls, emails, text, tweets, facebook, google+, and other items come through, shouldn't it vibrate?

    I've noticed that in some apps, like twitter, and facebook, there are options to turn on vibrate. BUT, if I do this, and the device is set to 'sound', then it tends to vibrate, too when a new notification comes in for that application.

    Bottom line is, I want when the device is set to silent\vibrate ALL notifications come through as a vibrate. But, if I have the device set to 'sound', ALL notifications come through as sound.

    Does that make sense? And thus how can I achieve this?

    This is a prime example of what I refer to as "overkill customizable" nature of android...

    There actually isn't a way to do what you wish to accomplish...each application has it's own settings ...the system is only going to handle "system" notifications

    I am an attention sound is on for everything...and everything has a different sound ... I use zedge to dload or ringtone trimmer and or audacity to make my own ringtones...

    everything has it's own unique sound so I always know what is what.

    The only way to "silence to use "silence all"

    I do that when I am in a meeting etc...just hold down the volume all the way down i think.
