    I have a Lumia 920 and the Nokia Purity inear headphones. When I have the headphones plugged in and in use and I receive an incoming call the ringtone goes through headphones, but also the phone speaker.

    Anyway to have it only ring through headphones.

    I don't think there is unfortunately.

    This is a bit of an odd feature...if I'm listening to music through headphones I don't really need it to ring on the phone speaker (and don't want it to either).

    If I put the phone on silent (by pressing the button on the right of the audio control) it silences it completely...so if I'm listening to music and my phone rings I have no idea someone's phoning unless I see the screen.

    I wonder if this was intentional or just an oversight!

    (I always have vibrate off so not sure if that works as you'd expect it to.)

    Same here I don't use vibrate, I never feel it.

    This seems like it would be unintentional cause it doesn't make sense why it does that.
