    As title says, loud meaning with the lock clicks and such. Or do you switch it up?

    Since getting an Apple Watch, it remains on silent. I previously had it on loud - always.

    Almost always have it on silent. Receiving notifications on my watch negates the need for noisy notifications.

    Always on silent--my iPad takes care of notifications at home since it is never on silent.

    Depends on where I am, and how discreet I want to be.

    Well…my iPhone is not on "loud". The sound is on though. It's usually about 50% volume. I can hear it but it's not maxxed so others are disturbed by it.

    I put it on mute when I'm in a place where any sound at all will be disturbing.

    My iPhone is almost always on max volume. Only times I mute it are when I go to the movies (obviously), when I'm included in an active group chat that I'm not participating in, or when I want to take pictures without the shutter sound.

    I don't even mute it before I go to sleep.

    LOL!

    I don't either, but I do have Do Not Disturb on a schedule. My wife has never appreciated being woken at 2 in the morning because I got an email or text message. Then there's hell to pay. :D

    Always on vibrate. I cringe when I hear other people's alerts. Especially when they're active in a conversation and receiving alerts constantly. Your screen lighting up in front of you should be sufficient.

    At night my volume is about 33%. Loud enough to hear if I am awake, yet not loud enough to wake me up.

    I've always had my phones on silent with vibration, since I don't like being the one that everyone notices when they get a text or email. Also, ever since the Apple Watch came out, I've had it on silent the entire time. My phone doesn't vibrate anymore.

    I have no problem going right back to sleep if I get woken up from a notification. But they usually don't wake me up unless I get multiple in a row.

    Oh I sleep right through mine. :)

    It's my wife that gets woken up. And then I get woken up because she's yelling at me for my phone having woken her up, LOL! :D

    It doesn't "behoove" me, it's an option not a necessity :)

    These days it's usually on silent especially at night as I want my baby to sleep! I have an Apple Watch though so still get alerts.

    Just a suggestion, as the thread asks for a a one-or-the-other response. Each to his own.

    Like many other have said, the Watch has changed things forever. I used to have the phone on either fairly loud or at least vibrate. This is now a thing of the past.
