Hello fellow sailors,

a thing that bugs me since the Jolla 1 is that there is no fast and easy way to switch between when I want silent mode with vibration and without.

To switch now I have to go to:

Settings menu -> Sounds and Feedback -> Vibration -> Choose between Always | Only when silent | Only when sounds on | Never

When I am in a situation, when I want to turn off vibration quickly, I have to go all the way again.

My suggestion would be to use the volume keys to handle this quickly:

Hold volume down button until ringtone sound level is at 0% -> Vibration enabled notification (with vibration feedback) -> another tap on volume down brings Silenced notification

As an alternative I can think of some other ways to handle this:

  • Handle vibration settings in ambiances
  • Put a button in the the quick-settings to quickly toggle vibration
  • Lock-Screen Pully-Menu to toggle vibration

Or maybe I missed some other way to handle this?

I think all your other suggestions were better than the volume button. :)

My first choice would be ambiences. I basicly use two ambiences: silent and non-silent.

The volume button suggestion is how android (or at least samsung phones) handle it. For my preference I would need three ambiances. One with sound, one silent w/o vibration and one silent w/ vibration.

But normally I just use one ambiance and handle the ringtone volume and silencing myself. That is why I would prefer a quick button solution to toggle vibration.
