Default switching profiles

Please Login to Remove!

Currently when you press and hold the "Q" you will switch back and forth between vibrate and normal. Does anyone know if it would be possible to switch between normal and silent? and if so, how?

I don't believe there's any real short cut per se to do what you're asking. I switch profiles in about a second. It's fairly easy to do.

Disable dial from homescreen. Once you've done that, switching profiles is quick and easy.

From the homescreen press F for proFiles then press N for Normal, then press space to select.

So I press F,N,space and I'm on my normal profile. It takes all but a second.

You can press V for Vibrate, Q for Quiet and so on.

Not exactly what you're looking for, but a pretty simple work around.

I believe the "q" button will switch in back and forth between the last 2 settings. For example if ur phone is on silent and then you switch it to normal: If you press Q again it will switch it to silent...Hope that helps.

Default leave as is

Why do not you leave it as is, and edit the vibrate profiel to be silent? Make all the alerts silent in the vibrate profile >
