    HI

    I've never actually noticed this before, but when my phone is set to silent, it still makes sounds whenever I get an SMS. Is there any way to turn this off when in silent mode without having to manually set SMS notifications to silent all the time? It's pretty annoying when you're in silent but you get sounds whenever a text arrives.

    Thank you. :)

    The volume control is slightly different in that there is a separate volume for notifications and ringtones... etc

    So in your case silent mode probably only meant silent for the ringtones but not for notifications. I use VolumeAce for my volume control. Set up widget with specific profiles on my homepage.
