    Hi,

    I recently updated to Win 8.1, and found that there is no way to set your phone to "vibrate only" mode through system settings. I used to do it this way as I had already broken up my Volume controller buttons.
    The pull down volume controller menu gets activated only when the volume buttons are pressed, I couldn't figure out a way to invoke it in any other way.

    Is there no way to control the ringer volume if the buttons dont work on Win 8.1 ?

    Thanks and Regards,
    Rohit

    Hi Branden.. tried that but it doesnt put the phone on silent mode, it just enables vibrate feature.

    I think if you broke volume buttons, best solution will be to repair them as I don't recall any other method for your problem

    Here's an mp3 that's nothing but 5 seconds of silence. Unzip it, put it on your phone, set it as your ringtone.
