    Is there any way to silence an sms notification by pressing the power button? It's rude for me to receive a message and have to grab my phone from my clip to silence it. It would be better to just hit the power button to silence it. Any ideas? I know tasker can do it but I don't want to have to buy an app just for this one problem.

    Yep I'm on my DInc2.

    This has been the case with everyone phone I used since windows mobile 5. Haven't found a device that silences text message alerts with a button yet. Either use a shorter alert or use WidgetLocker and have a ringer toggle and quickly switch to silent mode.

    Sent from my brain using the human to phone interface.

    Why don't you use a short notification tone, or leave it on vibrate and check it periodically? I don't understand why it's not rude to let it go off in the first place, but it's rude that you can't silence it almost immediately. :confused:

    It's just the principle. This functionality should be available as a standard. I guess I could just get tasker because I have searched all over and haven't found a solution. I wouldn't need to silence it all the time. The times it would need to be silenced would be unexpected and speratic.

    I think that phone manufacturers overlook this as a necessity because typically message alert tones are very brief and are usually over before you would even be able to get to the button.

    Yeah the only long notification tone I have is for my sms. And it is only about 20 to 25 seconds long. I have tested tasker a little bit and it seems to be the perfect solution I just have to shell out 5 bucks to continue using it after the 7 day trial.

    I find tasker to be worth the money. There are so many things it can do. I haven't set it up on my dinc2 yet, but on my DX I had it re-enable my lockscreen and enable auto brightness when I disconnected from my home wifi and when I reconnected it would dim and turn off the lockscreen. I used it for other various reasons as well. It is a great app.
