    I know I can hit the sleep button twice to get to the lock screen, keep tapping on the volume button, or drill down through settings, but is there a simple little app that will allow me to quickly toggle silence mode on and off?

    It would really be nice to press an icon on my home screen to do the trick. I need to be able to quickly silence the phone before walking into meetings, etc.

    Yeah, got that. The problem is getting to the lock screen quickly. The only way I know how is by hitting the sleep button. If I'm already using the phone, hitting the sleep button twice to get to the lock screen is a hassle.

    Not really a problem, just wondering if there is a quicker way.

    My omnia had a nice feature when you set it face down it would enter privacy mode and no sounds or vibrations would occur. Would be nice to have something like this on the Droid:motdroidvert:.

    I saw an app in the Market where you could put in certain locations on the map. Whenever you were at those locations the phone would recognize it and turn your phone to silent. It's a great tool for when you're at work or school.

    You can add a shortcut to your sound & display settings to your homescreen.

    I already did the shortcut thing. Still more taps than I was hoping for, but guess it'll do.

    Thanks all

    Yes, there's a silence widget out there. I remember seeing it, but I forgot what it was called. I'll let you know if I find it again.

    The free app I'm using is called, "ring toggle".

    I'm still trying to find some way though to quickly turn off music if anyone has any ideas.
