    Anyone know of a way to enable the keyboard clicks while the phone is on silent? The only thing I could find that comes close is keyvib, however I really don't want the phone to vibrate.

    If I am reading this correctly, you put your iPhone on silent and are wondering why the keyboard is not clicking?

    Why wouldn't it be possible? Apps can make sound when the phone is on silent. It's not like the silent switch disconnects the speaker or something.

    They can I suppose, but I just checked a few and non make sound when silent is switched on.

    Keyboard clicks are a system thing, silent switch turns off systems sounds, hence no clicks when in silent mode. :)

    Can someone code an app to reverse this? Possibly, but it would have to modify the way the phone currently works I believe.

    Apple's documentation asks that developers make their programs silent when the silent switch is on. Turn your silent switch on, open the iPod and play a song. Bam! Sound.

    There's probably just a plist somewhere with settings like "make the keyboard silent when the silent switch is on," just change that and it should work.

    I mean, we hack our phones for the very purpose of modifying the way it currently works ... Can he do it? YES! Do any of us know how to do it? Apparently not.

    Yeah, I'm aware making the iphone click when it is on silent would make the whole "silent" thing stupid. Just wondering if there was a hack to make it work because, well I like the clicks. The only other workaround I can think of is making silent audio files to replace my ringer and alert tones.

    Why not just make a silent ringtone, sms receiving sound, and calendar alert? That should eliminate all sounds that could pop up when the phone is not on silent.

    Awesome, thanks for finding that. I opened the file in property list editor and here is a section of the dump that may do the trick. Maybe I'll mess around with it this weekend:

    Code:
    	<key>TouchTone</key>
    	<dict>
    		<key>RingVibrateIgnore,SilentVibrateIgnore,RingerSwitchOff</key>
    		<array>
    			<string>Beep</string>
    		</array>
    		<key>RingVibrateIgnore,SilentVibrateIgnore,RingerSwitchOn</key>
    		<array>
    			<string>Beep</string>
    		</array>
    	</dict>

    I think touchtone is the sound for the dialer. I think there was a section in the plist called Key Click, or Keyboard click, I don't remember.

    Maybe this one:

    Code:
    	<key>KeyPressed</key>
    	<dict>
    		<key>RingVibrateIgnore,SilentVibrateOff,RingerSwitchOff</key>
    		<array>
    			<string>Beep</string>
    		</array>
    		<key>RingVibrateIgnore,SilentVibrateOn,RingerSwitchOff</key>
    		<array>
    			<string>Beep</string>
    		</array>
    		<key>RingVibrateOff,SilentVibrateIgnore,RingerSwitchOn</key>
    		<array>
    			<string>Beep</string>
    		</array>
    		<key>RingVibrateOn,SilentVibrateIgnore,RingerSwitchOn</key>
    		<array>
    			<string>Beep</string>
    		</array>
    	</dict>
