    Can anyone explain to me the purpose of software that shows you on your screen that your phone's ringer is off? If your screen is off, then you have to turn it back on to see the alert, or look at the LED. If you are looking at the LED, why not look at the switch right next to it?

    Well, I use Ringer Switch Pro in order to turn the LED on when the ringer switch is off and I find it very useful. An active LED is much more visible and attention-getting than the little orange paint recessed into the ringer switch.

    This is about being alerted when your guard is down and you are least expecting it. This isn`t about it being just as easy to look at one thing over another.

    Totally agree...and when ringer is off the tab exposes red for signification i.e. 700p/755p models.

    I'll take the OP's side here. With the 300, I had a habit of feeling for the switch while inside my pocket to make sure it's set the way I want - don't even need to take it out. With the 600 and thereafter, I use Profiles to set the ringer so I very seldom even use the ringer switch. But to each his own.

    For me, the key is that I have to LOOK to see where the switch is set. The LED is obvious, you notice it without even trying.
