Default Bugged by vibrate??

Please Login to Remove!

I think this may be the right forum (I hope or feel free to move) but I have my BB go off quite a few times a day (like most people on here probably). I get a few texts, sometimes some PIN's, SMS's etc.

I leave my phone on vibrate ALL the time. I find that the only ringers I use are funny but very obnoxious and I don't like them going off in public, I rarely change from vibrate. At work I obviously use vibrate.

Now the problem - I'll be at work, speaking to someone, and my phone vibrates (luckily it doesn't ring) but of course it's going to happen at bad times since it happens so often, and then everyone goes looking for the phone vibrating.

I don't want to switch it to silent (I knew that was a possibility) since I want to be notified, just a rant I guess, wish they could quiet it down sometimes.

The vibrate use to be a lot louder on the old Nextel devices, like the 7100 and the 7520.

Yeah, if you think your 8320's vibrate is loud, a 7100 would drive you insane.

Ok so I don't have it THAT bad. I guess the issue really is the huge amount of messages I get (mostly b/c I stopped using the computer for e-mail and get ALL of them (including the damn spam!) on my phone) and it makes for awkward situations a little too frequently for me.

OK now I'll just ask that there be a way to switch from vibrate to quiet with a quick shortcut key
