silent mode for lumia 710

Is there a silent mode in the lumia 710 that cuts out ALL sounds including gaming and all notifications. 

I can see by the instruction manual where to change this, and it also says silent, but there is only ring and viabrate, or viabrate only.  This does not turn off all sounds including gaming and notifications.  I unticked all boxes under sounds, however I still get live update sounds.  There should be a silent mode but I cannot see it.

Has anyone else found where this is.

Hi mark8188909,

 

When you switch silent mode on, all ringtones and alert tones are muted. Use this when you are, for example, at the cinema or in a meeting.

 

Press a volume key to see the volume status bar, then select ring . Silent mode  is switched on. If you have set your phone to vibrate, vibrate mode  is switched on instead of silent mode.

 

Set your phone to vibrate

Select basic-icon-go.jpg start-icon-settings.jpg and ringtones+sounds, and switch Vibrate to On basic-icon-toggle-on.jpg.

 

Hope this helps and let us know how you get on.

 

Regards,

Re: silent mode for lumia 710

I know how to enter silent mode, however this doesn't stop gaming sounds, and I still get status alerts.  There is nothing in ringtones and sounds regarding gaming and status alerts.  I want to turn off gaming sounds, and other app sounds.

Re: silent mode for lumia 710

have you tried going into the game options and disabling the sounds from there?

I can go into each and every game and disable sounds, but when we close and reopen the game it goes back to sound on.  Unless there is a way to turn off sounds for all games.  The other thing that does not silence during silent mode is any app sounds.  I have an app for some of my university email, and this keeps beeping announcments even though the phone is apparantly on silent.
