    My EVO only has Airplane Mode, Power Off, and Restart options when I hold down the power button. My buddies get an option to SILENCE phone. How do I get this option?

    Your friends phone proably hasn't been updated to OS 2.3. When the update was released last month, that feature/option was removed.

    There is an existing widget that does the exact same thing
    • Long press on your device where you would like the widget
    • Click widgets
    • scroll down then click settings
    • click Profile

    That is a nice widget, better than the link to the Sound Settings I had previously, but is there any way to get the sound option back on the Power Button? I liked being able to silence the phone without having to go back to the home page.

    Thanks.

    I use "silent toggle widget" check for it in the market. Its great for quickly setting your phone to sound on, vibrate, or silent. Just 2 clicks on your screen, and then your phone is silenced. One more click and the sound is back on.....quick!
