Please, pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase give us better slider options


What do you want the slider to do:

  1. Stay the same as it is now

  2. Keep it simple: Ring, Vibrate, Silent

  3. Other?

    Right now its not even possible to have my phone on "only vibrate" at work.
    The only options we have with the current silder/notification settings are:

    1. Make varying lvls of noise for everything all the time.
    2. Make varying lvls of noise for certain contacts all the time.
    3. Make no noise ever and don't vibrate even when the "vibrate only" option is on.
    (if the vibrate when on silent worked, always vibrate and sound like a beaver is eating my counter at night while its charging at 3:30 am?)

    Seriously why is this so hard to do?

    I don't know about other people but adding starred contacts special notification things should be something totally separate from the slider. You can always have a whole sub menu devoted to "[ ] Ignore the slider for starred contacts and do something else" that the user can choose to turn on and off.

    My phone is mainly used for emails and things like that and the senders may or may not be known to me. So either I get no notification or ALL notification, no mid ground and no option.

    Even when I try and "old school" just hold down the volume down button to force it to vibrate only it stops at around 15% volume and refuses to go down lower.

    TLDR; WTF is the deal with the bad slider functions, PLEASE make it better.

    They should just remove the slider, one less problem/bug/issue to fix. ;)

    Totally agreed. It was more powerful and customizable earlier. now we are stuck with very few options ( if only you wish to call them as options)

    Completely agree, there should just be an option to disable it completely and then give us back the stock software controls from android or something like that until they can figure out what they are doing with the slider.

    I have the same issue....
    I simply want "Ring" "Silent" "Vibrate". I don't need this strarred contacts thingy.
    That's it... Seriously need a customizable slider.

    Alert slider is useful... Just push it up for silent... So if play a game and turn off the volume... Just push up the slider or.. If i am in a class then no need to remove phone out... You can slide it when it's inside you pants
