    Searched and didn't find anything.

    Is there a one-click way to set the phone to vibrate? For example, on older phones you could just hold down the * key. I ask because typically you have to press the volume down button a few times to reach vibrate or silent mode.

    It's not a terrible nuisance, but it would be nice to have a feature with which you can go seamlessly between the loud ringer and vibrate or silent.

    There is a Profile widget available under the Settings widgets group. This toggles between ringer on / silence / vibrate.

    Thank you! Exactly what I was looking for. Checked these widgets before but must have missed it.

    To add to the previous tips, if you use widgetlocker you can make the ringer type one of the slide functions. I use it for school and its really helpful to just hit the power button and swipe my finger once to set my phone to vibrate
