    Oneplus 9 is my first Oneplus phone ever. I like it and Oxygen OS very much, but there is one problem with it that really disturbs me.
    The thing is in built in any Android phone option of quick switching on the quiet vibration mode. User should press power button plus volume up button at the same time to activate it. The bad thing about it is that from time to time it happens in my pocket and I don't know about it. As a result I can lose several people's incoming calls.
    As you probably, unlike other Android phones, Oneplus has very convenient switch between silence, vibrate and quiet modes. Due to this fact function of quick switching on vibrate mode with the power button plus volume up button is not needed at all and is only annoying users.
    Please add an opportunity of switching off this function.
    Or maybe someone could tell me how to deal with this problem.

    Hey, are you sure it is because of power + volume up button? Because this does nothing on my phone.

    Maybe change the way you keep phone in your pocket as this seems like a personal issue. I never had this issue with any phone.

    I had that problem as well in the past every time i picked up my phone. There's no way of turning this off unfortunately, at least not that i've found. I sent in a suggestion to disable this because we have the alert slider, that's about all we can do about the matter.

    Seen several mention this button combo. The same as you, I have never been able to trigger this. Like ghost story button combo you only hear about but never see

    I remember I have tried this in the past and at that time I seem to be able to trigger it. However if I try this now, I just can’t trigger it. You said you sent in a suggestion, didn’t they ever give a reply to it? If not, I would suggest to submit it as a bug and see what they say.

    Oh, so this button combo doesn't do anything for you? I was thinking it was maybe a region thing but since we are neighbours i guess that's not it then. No, i never heard anything from them, it's been several months now. But good idea about the bug report, i hadn't thought of doing that. Gonna file one later today. Although i've dealt with it by learning to pick up my phone in another way.

    Weird, it goes to vibrate on both my OP phones. Just to check, it doesn't show the vibrate symbol in the status bar, i only get a small toast message at the bottom and when i swipe the notification panel all the way down it says phone is set vibrate, in case you mist it. That's the thing with it, it took me quite a while before i noticed it got set to vibrate this way

    So I tried, first time didn't see any toast message, so I thought it was OK even checked the sound settings, looked all normal, volume max. Then I thought to call myself.......it was on vibrate only😳😳

    Tried to reproduce it, can't reproduce it🙄

    That's a bit scary

    I'm gonna report it for sure, i thought it was because they just didn't remove the native Google shortcut of putting the phone to vibrate, but the way it only triggered once for you, it might be a bug after all.

    It's weird, just tried my OP3, pushed on/off button and volume up, the sound menu popped up and I saw the slider go automatically go to 0. Tried it again......didn't work. I'm so confused

    Yeah, really weird... Too bad we will probably never know what exactly triggers it, even if they disable it because of bug reports or android 12 or something, i'm really curious now.
