    Default 5 days with Q10 and 2 questions - mute and battery

    I love my q10 and it is working spectacularly well. I just have 2 questions about the device
    1: How can I quickly mute the phone in meetings or movies and such? Went to the theater last night and had to dig thru settings to mute - I must be missing something obvious.

    2: How can I get the battery percentage to display on the screen? the battery seems to be lasting forever but having the percentage would help me gauge it a little better.

    Loving this phone!

    1) to mute your phone, just hit the middle button on the side.

    2) to see remaining battery life, go to setting --> About -- > select hardware (under category) and then scroll down.

    HTH, I'm new to the Q10 as well and really enjoying it, but still learning.

    If you want to quickly change the profile (silent / vibrate only):

    From the home-screen Swipe down from top.
    There will be a Notifications option (Bell Icon)
    TAP the Bell ICON. It will toggle between normal and silent/Vibrate only.

    Hope this helps.

    1 : to mute , pull down the menu in the homescreen , and push on the notifications icon , this will switch to mute , or vibrate only. Depends on what you selected the first time.

    2 : I use a simple battery app to watch this(battery percentage). Just keep the active frame open , or close it and open it when you would like to check percentage.
    Going to the menu , hardware etc take a lot of more steps.

    Depending on your os, the battery will show you increments of 1 or 5 %. If your like me, I have an addiction for checking out how the battery is doing throughout the day battery guru is an awsome app.

    Thanks guys!

    The middle button doesn't seem to toggle between modes, the only thing I have got that button to do is launch voice command when pressed for several seconds. When I hit mute at the lock screen, or even the home screen, I get no indication whatsoever that it is in or out of mute mode. This results in my having to pull down the quick access pane and go into notification settings to change this most basic setting - this needs to be fixed in the next sw update. Same for battery life, there needs to be an option to display it in the top bar, not just list it in a burried settings menu. These are basic things on a smartphone that you should not have to dig to get at..

    it isn't it as hard as you say.
    You do not have to go to the settings.
    Just tap the bell icon in the quick menu and you are in mute...

    Buddy - you don't need to go into notification settings. You just TAP the BELL ICON on the swipe down menu that appears. When silent mode is activated, it will show a Bell with a diagonal strike next to the battery.

    The MIDDLE button - is for mute when you are on a call. As in - it mutes so the other person can't hear what you are rambling on about on the other end with someone else.

    Tapping the BELL will toggle between Normal profile and your last selected profile (Vibrate only or Silent or Phone Calls only... whatever you had selected previously).

    What posters said above and Battery Guru is really nice, it tells you %, time until empty, and some extra stuff in the active frame, (when you leave it running).

    So then if suprised in a meeting or in church with a loud notification, in order to mute, you need to discretely take out the phone, swipe up, enter a company imposed password which must include at least a cap and a special character, swipe down, and press the bell icon. The Palm Pre had a little slider switch right on the top that you could feel and switch in your pocket or holster. I wonder if that is one of their coveted PDA device patents?

    No offense, but OP, don't do what he suggested for your first problem, that will actually start playing your music over the speaker if you have your music player running in an active frame, lol. Quite the opposite of what you're trying to do. Do what others have said, swipe down from the home screen and touch the bell icon, not the word. Touching the word will bring you to the notifications settings, while touching the icon will simply toggle between normal and vibrate only.

    No, if the notification is already going, just hit any button and it'll shut the phone up. The volume rocker included. So hit that first to shut it up, then open your phone and put it on vibrate only for future notifications.

    In regards to the battery indicator, I like the app BX battery info.. it's free, and I always keep the active frame open so it keeps the battery updated every percentage mark.. see attached photo

    If you press the up or down volume buttons, and all it will do is adjust "media" volume, there is a setting you can toggle.

    When you find that toggle (wish I could remember where I found it) you will then have the ability to adjust the ringer volume with those buttons.

    When I run the volume down to the bottem, my phone goes silent.

    can't the Q10 change between sound and vibrate by just pressing for 1 second "Q" from the home screen like legacy devices did?
    8800 -> 8320 -> 9500 -> 8900 -> 9650 -> 9700 (now my sister's) -> 9780 (now my GF's) -> 9900 -> Q10
