Anyone know if the iP4 will have a genuine Silent feature?

    Heck my Motorola L2 has it.

    I'd like it to be truly silent (not just Vibrate) at times.

    I considered that but prefer the third option really.

    Oh well, I'll try it out on the 24th again and see :)

    You don't understand. When you go into sounds, there is an option for Vibrate on Silent. Turn this off. Then when the flip is switched silent, nothing vibrtaes or makes sounds.

    Read what again? He told you what you were looking for. You can turn vibrate off for when the phone is on silent. That makes the silent switch a "truly silent" switch. No sounds, no vibrations, no coffee maker, nada. Nothing. Zip. Zero. Just a phone not telling you that you having a phone call.

    and once you change it in the settings that once, when you switch it to silent by the 2 position switch, its always silent.... you don't have to do it each time! lol

    A one position button would be nice. With the L2 you tap one side button to switch thru the modes. Quick and clean.

    How would we know? We don't have our iPhone 4 yet.

    does that mean you have to light the screen up each time to see if its in silent or not if you're not sure? cos a 2 position switch is easy, can tell if you deffo have it on silent just be feeling...

    You should keep your L2. Like for serious. Because it has such an awesome way of silencing as compared to the iPhone. It's truly amazing.

    Exactly. You can turn it on silent even while its in your pocket. You don't have to take it out and worry that it isn't on silent. Then, you would have to take your phone out of your pocket (in a place you shouldn't be using it) to turn it on silent.

    So you really want a 3 position switch?

    1. Normal
    2. Silent with vibrate
    3. Silent

    ?

    Three modes without having to go into Settings:

    Ring
    Vibrate
    Silent


    How freaking dense can people be?





    Quite a bit apparently :mad:


    edit: is Ryan the only one who thinks before posting?

    If you don't want to receive calls, then just put your phone in airplane mode. That will definitely put your phone to sleep.

    Then get an L2 if you can't figure it out. It's seriously not that complicated.
