    After the 2.2 OTA update, i can no longer have silent, vibrate, and ringer option on the volume control button. anyone know how to get that function back? I use vibrate 90% of the time instead of a ringtone it was nice to go from normal volume down to vibrate or silent by just pushing the button on the side.

    I'm rooted with a 2.2 rom and my volume key still allows me to lower the volume and if I go as low as possible my phone goes to vibrate mode.

    I too was using that function and now only the widget gets the phone to go silent, with no alerts of any kind. I use this in meetings where I place my phone on true table or desk in front of me and look periodically if the alert light is flashing or the screen lights up indicating a call. At least I still have the widget that works.

    I use ''quick settings'' - from the market - (widget is a gray circle with a yellow cog type of thing on it) Works great for several quick adjustments - and yes - has the sound to vibrate choice controlled by the side button as well :D

    haha it doesnt make any sense though. a phone that vibrates in silences mode, isnt silent!!! haha the whole room can hear your phone vibrating in your pocket when its quiet.
