    can you silence your ringer by pressing a button with out changing your profile?

    everyone seems to really have like the radio code from .90 does anyone remember if you could silence your ringer by pressing a button with out having to change your profile and no matter what profile you were on?

    You have to change the profile to silence the ringer. I think that is the case with any OS.

    it is really annying trying to silence the call and it only siliences that ring. so when the 2nd or 3rd ring goes off you got to push a button again

    I agree. RIM should offer a solution to allow one touch silence of calls.

    on .75 you could press any key and silence any ringer no matter the profile. and it would not start ringing again...it would have been like pressing silence on the screen but with ne button was just tryin to see if anyother radio code had it built in

    ya but thats hard to do sometimes. half the time i need to silence it, i need it to shut up now. like other phones ie LG or something. you can just hit any button and it shuts up. i dont always have the time to feel in my pocket to find those buttons. i jsut wanna put my hand in and push the first button i can find

    I'm running .109 sfi & on my phone I can silence the ringer once, without having to push it again to silence the 2nd, 3rd rings, using either the volume up/down, or the ringer silence button on top of the phone, like BB said. I think it must be in the Java, because I'm running .109 sfi on mine, but I have .122 Java, so I'm guessing that's where it's at. I also have "Buzz Me" a free app to make your phone ring & vibrate at the same time, but I don't think this has anything to do with it.
