    Mute button doesn't Mute

    Advertisement



    The Mute button on my 8100 doesn't mute... it puts the phone into standby mode, which still rings when receiving a call. Is there any way to get the mute button to just turn off all sounds? Or perhaps maybe bring up the profile selection screen like on Nokias?

    the mute button isnt meant to quite any sounds unless you are actually in a phone call. when that is the case, it only mutes your end.

    if you want to silence all the alerts you can hold the # button and it will change your profile to vibrate.

    i dont know of a shortcut to silence your phone without going through the profiles.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ a shortcut to profiles can be done by holding shift and moving your ball up and to the right and it will highlight it and just click it to open them, if that helps at all.

    Hey farmboy,pt thomas made a good point, what I learned is if you hold down the "#" it puts the handheld on vibrate, but if you hold the # key down once more it will switch it into quiet mode, does anybody else have any shortcuts?

    Thanks, pthomas11, that was exactly the response I was looking for! I guess I misunderstood... "mute ringer" was what came to mind. Muting the mic during a call makes perfect sense, now that I understand what it's for.

    And thanks for the welcomes, everyone else!

    X Factor, Can you explain your tip a little more? Holding shift and scrolling up does nothing for me
