this is a complete screwup on Motorola's part. did anybody not realize what they were doing? i cant believe nobody bother to say hey, maybe when people click silent, they really want the phone to be silent, as in NO sounds whatsoever.
they really dropped the ball on this one. i realize its for the alarm, but to not make the alarm seperate from media is COMPLETE STUPIDITY
I have also noticed that if I am playing some games late at night in silent mode, the haptic feedback makes more noise than I am comfortable with. At least I get concerned it might disturb the baby or my husband. I can't seem to find a way to turn it off. The haptic feedback item in the phone settings doesn't let me unselect it when in silent mode. I think it's strange. In non-silent mode, I can unselect it just fine.
They should really fix the problem with Vibrate mode reset when you put it in Silent mode.
Vibrate mode should be a stand alone option, not linked to any other setting.
