    Silent Mode Too Silent [Solved]

    Advertisement



    I was surprised today to discover that silent mode shuts the ringer off too.

    Is there an app or configuration setting to change this behavior, ie, leave the ringer on in an otherwise normal silent mode?

    I'm running a new mt3g v. 1.2 with Donut (not rooted).

    Not yet ... I'm playing with my phone to see if it can be done. IMHO this should be a setting in Android.

    There is an app called Auto Ring, not sure if it's what you are looking for, but it's free in the market so check it out. I will keep my eyes peeled for others as well

    Thanks azstar! That app was better than I could hope for! It allows you to "whitelist" phone numbers so they will ring even if the phone is in silent mode. I whitelisted my home phone and called my mt3g while it was in silent mode. It seems to take the phone out of silent mode to let it ring, then it put's it back into silent mode afterwards.
