    I'm just the opposite of you. 99% of the time, I've got it set to ringer (no vibrate) because I work in an office with a decent amount of noise (and the phone is usually laying on my desk). In fact, the only time I put it on vibrate is when I'm out to dinner or something like that, so as to not disturb people around me. I only put it on silent on Friday and Saturday nights, so I can sleep in the next morning and not be disturbed.

    I will say this about the vibrate...I like the motor they use now in the 4S much more than the one in the 3GS. It's just got a better feel to it and seems to be stronger.

    My school has a very strict policy on phones in class. If your phone rings in the middle of a lesson, you are suspended from school for 3 days. If it rings or you are caught texting during an exam, you are expelled! So you can bet I keep it on silent.

    D: all of above.

    Did I get the answer right ?

    Or was this a trick question ?

    What did I win ?

    I'm like KentuckyHouse, 99% of the time I'm on ringer. However, I've learned through embarrassment to put it on vibrate at certain times.

    Last year I went to a classical music concert and as the conductor lifted her baton to begin the first piece, my iPhone began blaring out Anchors Aweigh, my ringtone. It takes several seconds to correct the situation because your trying to do it while crawling under your seat!!!!!

    I'm now much more careful and have changed my ringtone.

    On ringer at home. On vibrate in public, because to do otherwise is pretty rude in most situations.

    I don't have to bother with silent--iBlacklist takes care of all unwanted calls and texts, so only those people I actually want to talk to can get through.

    My phone is on silent/ringer most of the time. Mainly because it gets annoying to hear the tri-tone ring multiple times in a short period of time.

    Wow that's insane. People use their phones all the time at my school. Worst case scenario is you'll have to pick it up at the end of the day if the teacher is actually bothered to take your phone away. Most don't though unless it's excessive.

    I Use

    A custom ringtone (Loud Rock lead clip) but no vibrate. It has to be loud as music is always playing here most of the time:)

    My phone is virtually always on ringer. The only time it's not is if I'm in the cinema, a meeting or somewhere else where it's impolite/discourteous to have it ring and to answer it. Personally I don't like having it on vibrate when it's in my pocket as it annoys me when it does vibrate. LOL.

    I have mine loud most of the time, on vibrate at night (the 4S vibrate is quiet enough to not disturb me, unlike the 4) and on vibrate whenever the situation calls for it.

    One of the nicest and often most overlooked design features of the iPhone is the mute switch. It makes it incredibly easy to put it on vibrate, even from inside your pocket.

    I'd hate to have another phone that requires it to be taken out of pocket and woken up before silencing it (e.g. both Android phones I tried in the past).

    I use ring most of the time unless I'm in a situation where vibrate is needed (doctor's office, meeting, movies, etc). I never use the silent setting as vibrate is more than enough.

    I would assume you know the toggle switch above the volume buttons on the side toggles between silent/vibrate and ringer, correct? After that, if you want it silent, you need to go into Settings>Sounds and turn off vibrate under Silent. If you want it to vibrate when the toggle is on, then turn vibrate on under Silent.

    I do not use vibrate in silent mode.

    The switch (which you open and close the sound) is an addict to me. By mistake, I open and close the sound. So many missed calls :)

    My gf will leave me because of the iPhone :p
