    just downloadled a great widget. Its called "power on/off." It is a toggle and works great so you don't need to use the volume rocker! It allows you to go from ringer to vibrate to neither.

    It is free. Here is the link

    SilentMode OnOff - Android app on AppBrain

    JIC you never heard of it. I tested it and it works perfectly on my Inc. :eek:

    Do you guys even read what's in the post, or just make a comment based on the topic? The topic doesn't describe it very well, but this is a widget for switching from ringer to vibrate to silent. It has nothing to do with power on/off - the name of the widget is SilentMode On/Off

    Don't be rude. You can press and hold the power button to get to those features, or you can use the ringer volume. That is what those other posts were refering to. Plus there are like 100 different silent/vibrate apps around so it is not like this is an unknown thing.

    Huh. I didn't know you could get those options from the power button. I guess that explains why i didn't understand the first couple posts.

    Not everyone on these forums are "andriod experts." It is supposed to be a place to share and get support. Apparently, there are some people who don't feel this way. As a noob, I didn't know this and was merely sharing it with the others who didn't as well. If you don't need it, then why make a comment?

    Like you said you didn't know (which is fine) but to ask people not to comment if they don't need...well...how would you have found out if others didn't comment?

    Cool app, I loaded it the first day. I wish you could put widgets inside of folders though. That Icon takes up a lot of the Home screen compared to others.

    is there a way to have the apps organizer replace the default "all programs" button?
