    I have don't vibrate in all settings in my text programs and settings only notify but after the last android update for the moto Droid Maxx I think a month ago anytime I have the phone on silent and someone sends me a text it switches to vibrate. Anybody else experiencing this?
    Troubleshooting
    I cleared my cache with no results
    I cleared the data from my text apps and uninstalled extra ones
    This happens weither stock messaging app, google hangouts or chomp sms is installed.
    I did find a work around way to make stock sms not vibrate by setting the ring patter for vibrate to 0,0,0
    but I couldn't find a way to mak the phone ringer have a slilent vibration pattern anybody know how to do that.
    So now I can have silent texts but the I am stuck with not being able to silence phone calls after I receive a text

    anybody have any ideas? my next thought was to wipe the phone but I am comcerned the issue would still be there after a wipe.

    I am not having that issue with my Maxx, after the last update. I have Vibration turned off under Messaging Notifications and my phone does not vibrate for a new text. Have you tried running your phone in Safe Mode? When in Safe Mode, Play Store Apps do not load, only the core system apps will run. That will help determine if the problem is in a Play Store App or in one of the system apps / files that came with the phone.

    That's very strange. Given that you're sure your settings are set right, and it sounds like they are, and you've tried the basic steps of clearing things out & trying other apps, a reset might be you only option left.

    It is quite common after software updates to devices that some little quirks will exist and a factory reset generally fixes a vast majority of them.

    I tried safe mode and it didn't happen then I went through my apps one at a time till I found the app causing the issue I did notice that safe mode logged me out of a few apps after rebooting and a few icons disappeared that I had to recreate it was a long process uninstalling reinstalling apps till I found it

    It seems one of the text filtering apps that let's my phone not beep at night seems to have an issue which I suspect is with the android update. I have been emailing the developer to see if he can determine the cause

    That's the beauty of Safe Mode... To help determine if it's in the System or a play store app. Glad you got things figured out & working better.

    I started using Tapatalk but even with the alert sound on silent I still get notifications on the forums had to turn notifications off do you know if there is a way to make it silently notify? I am going to probably post that question in a Tapatalk forum once I find one

    Notifications with Tapatalk have been strange lately. I set them to never curate, but sometimes they do. No issues with sound here.

    Several of us have had days where it wouldn't notify us at all.

    I had a day where it kept notifying me of things I had already addressed...

    I had to switch to yet another night mode text/call filter app as it was sometimes not filtering at correct time or person but worked 98% of the time I have also been waiting for the lollipop update when I will have to see which app works best with that update
