    Thumbs down Quick way to silence the phone?

    Hi everyone,
    With my old phone, I was able to hit the # sign, and the phone would go to vibrate only. With the Motorola, I did not see any mention of a key to hit or a setting to select for this. Does anyone have a solution to silence the phone with a key press? I go in and out of meetings at work, and I would like to simply press a button to vibrate only.

    on the lock screen. you swipe to the right to unlock and to the left to silence. now that turns off your vibrate feature but there is an app in the market to prevent that

    There is an app that changes the volume based on orientation. face down, no ring.

    I have a volume control widget and just change the sound as need be, but it is
    power on
    unlock phone
    slide screen to right
    click widget
    adjust volume for ring volume (which is the same as notifications) and I tend to change media volume at the same time.
    then power button back to sleep mode.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Forgot that was there. I use it to sometimes ignore a call (same swipe direction) but forgot you can silence the phone too.

    The ringer volume control will bring it into Vibrate. It's a single button, but you have to press it several times.

    Yes; hold the Volume-Down button until it turns volume completely off.

    Then 1 press of Volume-Up will turn on Vibrate mode.

    Like stated, if the screen is locked just press the power button and swipe the sound on/off icon to the right. If you're playing on the phone and it isn't locked just long press the power button and a screen will pop up with 3 options: silent mode, airplane mode, or power off.

    By any chance do you remember the name of that app? I've been looking for an app that silences/ignores calls based on orientation.

    That's the way I do it, easy enough.
