1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hey guys, just a quick question and I apologize if this has been asked before. I just got the Incredible and got my ringtones working and all but is there a way to stop the ringtone when someone calls/texts me by just pushing a button?

    Say I get a text, I have to first, pull the phone out of my pocket, unlock the phone, then click on "Messages" just to stop it. I want to be able to reach in my pocket and just press something that will make it stop, is this possible?

    I ask this because if I'm at work and I'm busy, I don't want my ringtone blaring for the full 30 seconds. Now I know some of you will say to just put it on vibrate or lower the volume, well I rarely notice the vibration and I'm not going to raise/lower the volume every day before and after work. Just pressing a random button would be much more convenient.

    Thanks guys.

    Edit: Forgot to mention that pushing the volume buttons does not silence the phone, on all my other phones it did though.
