    Silent mode isnt silent?

    I got almost busted in a meeting trying to play a game of solitaire yesterday. I guess I never knew when you hit the power button and turn off sounds, it doesnt mute media volume. Any ideas?

    I wish it did silence everything. The same thing happened to me. I have to remember to use the volume rocker button when I open an app or game trying to be incognito. That's a bit annoying.

    Agreed, however in the mean time what I use is the Tone Picker app. Just make a shortcut to that bad boy, when it opens the default screen is sliders for all the different volume levels on your phone. It does not have a media volume slider but I think it coincides with the system volume.

    Give it a try, hope it helps you not get fired!

    BTW it is also a great app for setting all your ring and notification tones.

    How silent is silent? Assuming I'm just using stock apps like the Calendar, Browser, Messaging, etc. will any of those make noises? I need my phone to check my schedule in court, but I don't want to be that guy who's phone starts going off.

    There is a cool app that I use called "Quick Profiles" that allows you to set up custom profiles, a la Blackberry, and easily switch between them. You can change every profile to have a different volume for each item, media included. Also, you can change the brighness level for each profile, if need be.

    It does that because the Alarm is part of the media. That way you can silence your phone at night but still wake up in the morning.

    They should really change it though.

    Silent mode puts everything on silent that doesn't use "Media Volume" (Edit: And alarm volume. Saw that in someone else's post here. Didn't want to give false info).

    There are several apps and widgets which let you control the audio widgets.
