    I just switched to a Lumia 822 from a Galaxy Nexus, and am looking for a way to easily toggle between three modes: i) ringer+vibrate, ii) vibrate, and iii) silent.

    On Android you could do this quickly by pushing the on/off button from the lock screen. You then were given three options: ringer+vibrate, vibrate, and silent.

    On WP, however, it seems that you only have two options from the lock screen: ringer+vibrate and vibrate. To get to full silent mode, I have to go into settings to turn off vibrate mode, then go back into settings when I want to turn it on. Not very elegant. Is there something I am missing? An app, perhaps?

    Nope and Nope. Currently you can only flip off the vibrate through settings, no toggle for it, and no apps would be allowed to change anything like that anyway.






    it has been asked once or twice, haha ;)

    After how long? I've had my Lumia 620 for a couple of months now and this still bugs me. Personally, I think it's a design flaw and needs to be fixed.

    One easier way to do it is adding a "settings" shortcut to your home screen! Basically it will cost you 3 taps lol but if you can't live with 2 extra taps then there's nothing we can do for you D:

    Ok, thanks. I agree that it is strange that WP has not addressed this.

    This is just the beginning ...... wait till you get a load of all the other basic things the OS is missing.
    They are all on their on own little things but combined they become one big annoying thing.

    I would say get back to Android if you are an impatient guy or else learn to live with it.. Like how I'm putting up with my 620 :)
