    absolute IDIOTS who park on double yellow lines.

    I nearly got hit by a car because of your f**king van - it was literally parked in a place that made it nigh on impossible to cross the road.

    The new Android update. They've got rid of the silent feature! So now I have to have my phone on vibrate or volume level 1. Both of which will wake me up if they go off while I'm sleeping. I work nights, I do not need this. And I can't turn my phone off because then the alarm doesn't go off.

    Can you put it on vibrate and then go in to vibration settings and turn it off perhaps?

    what the hell? Thats like a basic feature?

    Could you not see if there's an app that functions like Do Not Disturb on iPhone? Or put your phone on aeroplane mode while you sleep?

    Yes, it has been rolling out for a few months, nexus devices first and other handsets come later. I have it on my nexus tablet, but not my Samsung phone yet.

    I've turned it onto the lowest intensity vibrate and there's also a setting so I can choose which notifications make noise. I have it on priority so alarms and memos will still make noise but nothing else. It's still an annoying way around it. Especially since I have to Google how to find out to do it rather than just turning the volume down as I've always done! Why change something that works?! You know what they say Android, if it ain't broke...

    ^ try putting it on a folded t-shirt or something else soft so it's not buzzing around on your unit

    Still bloody ridiculous though.

    Catface, does this help?: https://gigaom.com/2014/11/17/silent...notifications/

    I think Lollipop is supposed to be available for my phone now, but I've still not got a notification to update it.
