And silent during the night?
Just curious as to how other users use these functions
I think the correct terms should be "silent" and "audible." Loudness is a subjective term in relation to level of auditory response.
no I always have mine at medium ring volume. find it ridiculous how loud others have their phones.
medium plus vibrate is plenty. phone always with me so hard not to hear that. or feel it.
also always turn off click sound with operations. I am shocked people still walk around with every action needing an annoying click.
I'm with you on the volume. I like the clicks.
I have mine on silent nearly all the time. It goes into do not disturb mode at night. My Apple Watch alerts me as well as the vibration from my phone.
I ****ing hate hearing other people's annoying ass phones. It's rude. I love my silent life. LOL.
Mine is set loud enough so if I am awake I can hear it but if sleeping it is not loud enough for me to wake.
This is sooo annoying.
Mine's on silent 24/7; the Watch beeps and vibrates like crazy anyway, so I'd probably go insane if the phone would do that too.
Phone and watch are always on silent.
It all depends on what's going on and where I am. But I never use the vibrate function. I always turned if off years ago on dumb phones too. I like the clicks but if I'm somewhere quiet and others are around I hit my mute switch so they don't have to listen to it. Everything is so easily/quickly adjusted nowadays that you can change it to your current situation effortlessly.
Context also plays a large role in communication. Most people understand what the OP is asking.
I sleep terrible, I am a terrible sleeper. And I don't sleep long at all.
So when I go to bed and I don't mind to wake up in a few hours, I leave it on. As usually I do, I don't mind if someone needs me that those favorites come through and bother me - through the years I've been ok with glancing at the name and rolling over if I just don't care.
But when I had a really bad day, or a bad week (my albinism can make me feel terrible at times), I just don't want any light, any sound, .. nothing. it's a miracle isn't not on airplane mode to be honest. silent, dnd, not near the bed. etc.
But because I sleep so bad, and poorly, I am ok with idling in bed watching media on the iPad, facetiming with a friend to relax, and just having some music on. I am not going through the active process of putting stuff away or flipping settings etc. I just push it aside, face on pillow, snore time. It would otherwise just be enough to basically wake me up again.
Phone and watch are always on silent, hate to hear the notifications
My iPhone speakers have sucked on my 6+ for a while now so I just leave it on silent, I honestly have a better chance of hearing it vibrate
I have an Apple Watch.
My phone is silent.
I'm totally with you and same here with my phone and watch.
Unfortunately, in Germany most people don't give a damn about this - not even in the do not disturb carriages of trains (where pictograms show a crossed out phone and a person holding a finger to their mouth..).
I spent some time living in Japan once where behaviour like this is considered extremely rude.
I only ever use silent. Regardless, unless I'm waiting for an ultra important call and don't wish to miss it.
My phone is generally in 1 of 3 modes:
Max Volume - when in office, out and about, or at home
Vibrate - when in meetings or the kids have gone to bed
Do Not Disturb - when I'm sleeping
Vibrate. All day long.
What? I'm EXACTLY the same. I thought I was the only person on this planet who has a phone on silent all the time. I prefer to live my life quietly and poetically. I can already feel and "hear" the vibrate and that's enough. Hahaha!
I do leave the volume on loud.
Fortunately (for others), I rarely have my phone out of my grasp outside of the house, so the actual time it's ringing (should anyone call) is pretty minimal.
Plus, I generally don't field many calls...if I get more than 20 calls a month, it's a rarity.
Since I started using a smart watch (pebble) the ringers on buzz
My wife does as well. It's maddening for me sometimes when I'm trying to call and she doesn't hear it.
The only time I take mine out of silent mode is when watching a video in some apps and the sound doesn't play. Not all apps do this but I have a few.
Phone and watch go into do not disturb at 10:30pm and come out at 7:00 am also.
Pretty much the same here (with the difference of keeping it on vibrate in the office mostly because it can be disruptive at times even outside of meetings).
