    Is there a way to disable the notification vibrate?

    Are you referring to one program or everything? To silence your phone completely, turn off everything by touching the volume adjustment downward.

    But, if you are trying to disable it for one certain type (email, text, facebook), in the app you are looking to take the vib off or change the ringtone of, press the menu button, and go to Settings. You should find the options there.

    I would like to be able to turn everything off except the phone ringer and the alarm clock. Is that possible?

    There is an app called "Quick Profile" that lets you make sound profiles that you can easily switch to and then you can link it to your home screen. I use it a lot. It allows you to pick the exact volume of each category, as well as choose whether each category vibrates or not. Lastly, and least importantly, you can also put screen brightness settings for each profile, as well. I created a night profile for this use.

    If you're looking to turn everything off except for the ringer and alarm clock at certain times, and switch back to having everything else on quickly, use their advice.

    If you just want to have the phone ring and the alarm clock as your primary "sound profile," you should disable notification ringtones in any app that you still want a notification for, as well as vibrate. They should all have these options.

    I have my e-mail accounts setup to not ring or vibrate. Instead, the notifications appear in the status bar, and the LED blinks.

    As well, you can disable vibrate and default notification sounds in the sound and display settings menu.

    [Wasn't sure if you were looking for different profiles that you can switch between, or if you just wanted things to stay the way you're asking if you can get them, so I figured I'd offer another perspective!]

    i'm not sure OP was asking for specific sound profiles as much as (he) wanted to just disable all notifications, which is easily accomplished by going home - menu - settings - sounds and display - notification ringtone (silent). vibration is setup individually through each application, so check the menu - settings of apps like email, messaging and calendar to make sure those are all turned off too.

    Unfortunately, this isn't entirely true.

    To get Quick Profiles to work where it sets everything to vibrate, you have to have the notifications set to vibrate at all times through their applications.

    So in other words, if you're like me, and want to have everything either ring only, vibrate only, and alarm/phone only (3 settings), this won't work. I don't want my phone vibrating AND ringing. If it's sitting on the desk next to me or on the couch next to me, I don't want it to vibrate AND ring. No reason.

    With ringer mode set on vibrate, and notification volume set to 0%, your notifications will be completely silent and the LED will blink...UNLESS you have the notifications set to vibrate at all times via their respective programs.

    I'm less picky. I leave my phone at full volume/vibrate most of the time. That way, if it's in the other room, I hear it. If I'm watching a movie loud, I've got a chance to hear it. If I'm driving or somewhere where it's loud and it's in my pocket, I feel it.

    I WILL, however, in public places turn the volume down a bit if the surroundings aren't very loud.

    At work, I put the phone on silent and check it on my breaks.

    As well, I'm a heavy sleeper, and it seems like the phone vibrating on my nightstand wakes me up faster than a regular alarm at the same volume. :)

    Of course, ALL of this is just preference.

    Still pretty sure the original poster isn't worried about profiles, but Idk.

    I NEVER go anywhere with my ringer on. Unless it's some long road trip. I can't stand people in public that have their phone set on what sounds like loud as hell in the middle of something. No one cares that you are getting a phone call. It's just a peeve of mine. It's not a knock on you.

    So I don't want my phone to vibrate and ring at pretty much anytime. Either completely vibrate for everything or completely ring for everything (except at night, then I don't want to hear some Twitter update at 3am).

    ring + vibrate ftw. if my phone is on my person, where i can feel the vibrate, i'll typically answer the phone before the ringer becomes obnoxious. if my phone is not on my person, i'll be able to hear it and respond.

    i never have my phone actually with me 100% of the time, and remembering to switch between ring and don't ring is too much of a hassle.

    I didn't take it as a knock. Just giving my two cents on how I do things. Like I said, I turn it down when in certain places. When I am in a waiting room, for example, I DO use JUST vibrate. Movie theater, SILENT.

    I feel like cell phones are commonplace enough [both my parents who're around 60 and semi-retired as well as my sister who's got some mental disabilities from epilepsy and brain surgery text me...], that a majority of people just ignore someone else's phone going off in public, depending on the location, but I do my best to be considerate of others.

    Plus, I like to utilize the ability to set custom tones for certain people so I know who's calling without taking the phone from my pocket. As well, I keep the phone in the pouch that they gave me when I bought it, and more often than not, hit the volume key before removing the pouch from my pocket, so my pocket muffles the entire ring quite a bit AND it doesn't ring for long.

    Now, when you're like my cousin and have a ridiculously long notification sound for texts, that annoys me. You just need something short like a beep or two [I still use the DROID sound...]

    Well 75% of the time my phone sits on the hard wood desk in front of me, either at work or here, when I am home. Last month I sent or received over 2000 text messages. If I had to listen to that nails-on-chalk sound of the phone vibrating across the desk every time I got a text, notification, and email...I'd throw it out the window.

    If I was in line or at a restaurant trying to have dinner with my wife, sitting next to you, and your phone made that Droid sound every time you got a text (assuming you were having a back and forth conversation with at least 3-4 texts coming in) I would get up and stab you with a spoon.

    Haha! Well, I do my best not to invoke people's urge to spoon me to death, so I tend to pay attention and I've never noticed my phone annoying anyone while having a back-and-forth conversation via text, but if I notice that a text has turned into a conversation, I turn the volume down more.

    If I'm at home my phone is either on the arm of the couch, or I set it perpendicular on the pouch that I keep it in, so that the majority of the phone is on the pouch, but the speaker is slightly elevated. When it vibrates, I don't feel like it's that annoying, but that could be simply because of the pouch cushioning between the hard surfaces...

    Perhaps this is just an age thing...[I'm sure you'll call it maturity.]

    Either way, I respect your opinion, but enjoy my liberties as an American citizen. :icon_ devil:
