23 Mobile Things, Thing #2: Mobile Device Tips

I did upgrade my iPad to iOS7 so I was delighted to see all the tips and tricks.  However, I didn't really learn anything new.  Luckily for me I got to attend the MLA annual conference this past October and attended the awesome presentation "Things in a Flash: 40 in 60 iPad Apps & Tips" by LeAnn Suchy, the technology goddess!

One thing I really wanted to learn was how to make the keypad on my Galaxy S3 silent even when my phone ring volume is turned on.  I have my phone on silent all the time, mostly because I'm at work, but I even do it at home now because I just hate listening to the clicking sound!  And this issue is no longer solved by going under "Sound" in the Settings menu and unchecking the keytones option.  But, by completing a simple Google search I finally stumbled on the answer: 

It works!  I can have my ring volume turned on and still silently send text messages and emails to my heart's content.  My life is fabulous once again!  Hurrah!


  1. Hi Deni! I am your 23 Mobile Things cheerleader. :)

    Glad you were able to figure this out - I think I will have to follow suit because I also dislike the eternal clicking coming from my phone.

    Looking forward to learning more from you with this program!

  2. Thanks Rachel! I'm excited to have a cheerleader! :) I haven't worked on this for a while because I've been super busy planning the summer reading program, but I'll get back at it soon!
