    Hello guys!
    I just discovered that when I swich the sound off from the side switcher, there is not any icon that indicate the phone is in silent mode on status bar. Is there any way to make it visible, or it's just a new iOS5 option?

    There has never been a silent symbol on the iPhone. If you think there was, it must have been an jailbroken iPhone. I think SBSettings can do this.

    Yes, may be you are right- my JB iPhone 4 shows silent icon before the battery icon... But I have never realized that is because of the JB...

    The most glaring omission on the iPhone in my opinion, and a major drawback for useability, especially for those who switch between silent and audible for business meetings, etc.

    Feedback duly sent to Apple, but given that people have been complaining about this for some time, I'm not expecting this to be remedied any time soon.

    If you have the headphones in and/or on silent then the iPhone will still set off alarms if you have them set. The sound will come out of the bottom speaker. Is that what you were meaning?
