    Under "sounds" in Settings, I set all the notifications to not make a noise, but instead vibrate. I want it to be this way for when I get a phone call as well.

    But when you select ringing tone, there is no option for "none".

    How would I set my ringer as just "vibrate" just like all the other notifications?

    Make an custom ringtone with 30s of silence.

    You could also took a song from you iTunes library limit it to 30 seconds volume adjust to -100% export to AAC move to desktop rename m4a to m4r and import back in iTunes.

    You've gotta be kidding me! Even on my flip phone there was an option to set it to just vibrate. But I'll look into that iTunes thing for my ringtone.

    I may be missing something very obvious here, but can't you just switch the silent switch to silent and achieve the exact same thing?

    I've had my first iPhone, a 4S, for a little over a week. I am impressed by its quality of screen display if not the size of the screen and its smoothness of operation, but...compared to a top of the line Android phone or even, as you point out, a flip phone, it is sorely lacking in many areas of utility and abundant in areas that have little appeal for me.

    Good idea, I just thought there would be a setting for vibration only.

    In options, make sure that when in silent mode, vibrate is switched on, then flip the switch. Simples!

    Also, any way to not have the number keypad on the phone make those noises?

    Did that, but when I go to make a call and press the numbers it makes the phone dial sound.

    Dude just flip the mute switch. No alert sounds, no keyboard sounds, no anything.

    I have my phone set to silent then when on say, the YouTube app you slide the volume up, this is just for the video and the ring is still silent.

    Flip the switch and see how it affects video and music. I just tried it. Took me 30 seconds.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Also, when you're talking to someone on speaker do the volume buttons have any bearing on the call? The reason I'm asking is because there seems to be different volume controls for everything - one for notifications, one for "general" volume, like music, apps, etc.

    Volumes are independent of one another and context specific. When you are on a call the volume buttons will change the in call volume, but as soon as the call is over and you're back on the home screen, the volume buttons will control ringer volume. Start the MP3 player and the volume buttons will control the music volume, plug in a pair of headphones and the volume control is different again! This allows you to set different volume levels for each specific task rather than just having one master volume control.

    Two things I miss from my Blackberry, the ability to easily assign a silent ringtone to certain people and the ability to have the phone go silent automatically during set times, like between 10pm-7am at night or during weekly meetings.

    Is there anyway to set "notification" sounds at a different (lower) level than the ringtone level?

    No, the ringer and alert volume are one and the same.

    my users are jumping

    back to android because of this. never realized it was such a big deal till i switched back to iphone when my android phone broke.

    i just wanted to set different notifications per account...but i literally have had 5 people return 4S to go back to original moto droid for this.

    was there ever a jailbreak solution? i've sent a few custom ringtones but thats really lame... :(

    In silent mode...

    Anything you *force* to make sound such as starting a video, or playing music will play.

    Anything that you don't expect will be silenced, such as ringers, or most apps (unless you tell the app to make sound, like certain games)
