    Ringing while charging

    Is there any way to keep the phone from ringing while it is plugged in or on the cradle? Even when I have the phone on silent, it rings out loud while plugged in, which is getting comments from people in adjacent offices.

    Only way I know is to turn off the phone. Does anyone know of a hack?

    Sorry, I did think of one other way - change the ring to vibrate. Silencing the phone won't work.

    When it is charging, it reverts to the method under phone preferences / incoming calls.

    Max -

    My phone will ring in Vibrate Only under Prefs, and using Silence All Sounds with or without Vibrate Only set in prefs while in the cradle.

    You're right. Me too. So the only way I know is to turn the phone off when charging.

    If you're in your office, then set your phone on call forwarding to your office phone. Just a thought.

    I can't do that. The call would go to our receptionist. I don't want all my cell phone calls going to our receptionist.

    Even if you have the phone set to "Silent Mode", the phone will still ring when external power is applied.
    A previous thread speculated that the vibrate mode is disabled because if it is plugged into the cradle, and then begins to vibrate, the connector could be damaged.

    And what's wrong with your receptionist getting your calls and passing them on to you?

    It is not necessary for the already busy receptionist to be taking my personal calls. That is one reason why I have a cell phone.

    I'm sorry, I must respectfully disagree. Her job is with the company, not my personal affairs. She is paid by the company, not me. If it were my own business, sure, no problem. But, I guess that is just the type of person I am. I don't take company staplers home, and I don't have the receptionist deal with all my personal phone calls.

    For silencing the ringer while in the cradle, how about installing a silent ringer file and selecting that -> LINK

    Are you offering to field his calls?
    You might have to wear a skirt!

    I agree 100% with bergie33!

    "a person employed to greet telephone callers, visitors, patients, or clients " - Where does it say anything about taking PERSONAL calls??

    Silent Ringer

    While I was snooping around awhile back I went into the 6035 download site and found a silent ringer:
    Silent ringer
    I was able to download it on my kyocera 7135 and it works fine. I leave the flip open and keep it at eyes view (next to my phone) so if it rings I can notice it easily.

    Silent Ringer

    Also, if you don't have the cradle in eye's view then you can still have it on silent ringer and forward your calls to your own office phone (if this is not a problem with company policy). You can enable *71 and the number you wish to forward to, which is call forwarding and call forwarding no answer to your office phone (if you have verizonwireless) and when you want to cancel the call forwarding disable it by pressing *72.

    FYI - if you choose - Lights Only within Phone prefs / phone alerts, the phone will not ring when charging.
    The screen will just flash...

    Sorry for the delay in responce.
