    It seems that at least with the GSM version, the side buttons do not silence the ringer. Is there anyone out there that can create a program or hack or whatever to fix this option that I use to have on my outdated and less sophisticated T600?

    please let us all know.

    if anyone has the side buttons working...please let us know so that maybe we can figure out what is different about your phone.

    I think you have to let Phone Technician handle your ring tone; if you do, the volume rocker/silence function is provided.

    I just slide the mute switch, or are you saying reject the call? I prefer to mute since the caller doesnt know i rejected them.

    Really? How. I own Treoguard, but I couldn't find this feature. Treoguard allows me to block the side button or the volume keys when the phone is ringing, but it doesn't allow them to mute the ringer unless I'm missing something.

    It works for the Cingular GSM phone. At least with mine it does.

    We know that. The problem is with most non-branded phones and phones (branded or not) to which the 1.28 GSM update has been applied.

    Sorry, let me explain. When a call comes in, at least with my old T600, I could hit the side button and the ringer would silence but contiue to ring. My new T650, although the manual says that it will do the same, does not. It didnt work with my old firmware and does not work with the new either. There appears to be a bug somewhere and Palmone does not seem to be addressing it.

    Hopefully this is more clear now...if not, please let me know

    Yes, it's quite common. As I said:

    The only solution for those who've always had the problem is to let an app like Phone Technician handle their ringtones; for those who didn't have the problem before applying the unlocked GSM update, an alternative is to revert to their former FW - although, I doubt that would be worth it.

    My phone is branded (cingular) and I have always had the problem. I spoke with others awhile ago in this forum and they had similar problems but they all seemed to have either disappeared or no longer have the issue. I was hoping that someone had a far simpler workaround rather than using another piece of software that I dont need handle what I would consider a simple task. A "hack" if you will to enable this would be great that I do not need to enable was what I was hoping someone would either develop or has developed as I am not skilled enough in this arena to tackle such a task.

    thanks again

    Must be a GSM verse CDMA thing? Which do you own? I need to play with mine tonioght and see, I am 95% sure I can silence the ringer with the volume keys and perhaps the PTT (the single one below the volume)button too. I know that the PTT button acts like an enter too, if the "focus" of the 5-way is on "Speakerphone" for example, hitting the PTT button will select and deselect it.

    Yes, I think it's definitely a GSM thing... I'm using a GSM phone with the 1.28 firmware.

    I have a midi ringtone that I like. If I use phone technician can I keep using that ringtone?

    bretts: please tell me why you don't want to just use the mute switch made for this?
    I don't like it when I call people back and they say 'you refused my call'...
    Honestly curious

    I don't like to refuse calls either. The way it should work is the call comes in and the ringer rings, then I hit one of the volume buttons which mutes the ringer for that call. If I'm ignoring that call, then it eventually times out and goes to voicemail or, if I wanted to mute the ringer because I was in a conversation with someone I could still finish the conversation and then answer the call before it goes to voicemail.

    The mute switch does work, but it's not the ideal solution because I need to have the mute switch in the 'mute' position for the entire time the phone is ringing (otherwise it just starts ringing again). If I do that then I might forget to unmute it later. I do use the mute switch when I'm going into a movie theater or a meeting where I don't want the phone to ring at all, but I usually leave the ringer on and there are a lot of times when I want to mute the ringer for only one call.

    The volume buttons worked great on the T600 to mute the call on a call by call basis. With my phone in a holster, that is the way to go without answering the phone...but it does not seem to work before the upgrade and now after. I have a GSM cingular locked phone...and it never worked as advertised...not sure why and dont know why palm hasnt fixed it
