    how do i ignore the tone when i get a text message like shut the tone up in a hurry? for example most phones or smartphones has a button when some one texts you and ur tone starts playing you can press to shut the tone up. any info or any apps would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

    I know for when the phone is ringing hitting the volume keys will silence it, however I don't know if this also applies to notifications as my notifications are short tones

    On my alarm, tapping the screen stops the notification. I think it works that way for other notifications too.

    Nope touching the screen doesn't work either. The only thing that works is hitting the power button to turn the screen on then sliding the the speaker icon to the left to turn the phone to silent. But then u have to slide it back to turn sound back on. This is really getting on my nerves guess I gonna have to wind up setting it to vibrate only

    What are you using for notifications? A large mp3 file?

    My notifications are pretty basic and just go off one time so I really don't have that issue except for my alarm. Anyway you can shorten the notification so it only goes on for a second or so?

    Not sure about notifications, but on an incoming call you can press the power button and it will silence the call.

    You can try this with notifications to see if it works.

    I got the same problem!!! I have a short mp3 for my text but its long enough that I need to silent it if I'm talking to somebody or in a meeting... volume or lock button works for calls but not text... One button has done this on every phone I've ever owned!!!!

    It's a notification not a ringtone, shorten that sucker up. I use certain notifications for certain apps, but nothing over a second long. The more frequent the notification, the shorter it is because no one wants to hear the Freebird guitar solo every time I get a text or an email

    I like having a long notification for text because sometimes it takes me a few to hear it... song in the car or loud party.. if it last 30 or 40 seconds then I have a better chance of catching part of it and knowing I have a text... it just doesn't make any sence that there is no way to press (volume button for example) to silence it when nessecary
