    I text a lot and do not want to hear stupid sounds every time I send or receive a text. I ONLY want it to vibrate.
    If I use the side switch to turn all to vibrate, I constantly miss phone calls bec I don't hear the vibration.

    How can I have calls ring, but texts only vibrate?

    I have tried to turn the ringer on, then set the text alert to "nothing" but then it won't even vibrate when i receive a text. It does NOTHING (but visually show me). :/

    Does Apple have plans to have 2 separate controls for call & txt volumes?

    Is there anyway I can make this happen?

    Ps- I have the 3G.

    There is no Apple-supported method to accomplish this as of iPhone OS 3.1.3.

    If you jailbreak you iPhone, you could easily accomplish this by replacing the sound file for messaging alerts with an AAC file containing only silence.

    How would anyone on this forum have any knowledge of Apple future plans? In any case, I doubt it. This is a long-running "feature" that has been with us since iPhone OS 1.0.

    What about choosing "none" for the text message sound?

    EDIT: Sorry I need to read.
