  13. 13
    "Normal" is currently selected, indicated by the green circle on the right side

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    With the second option "Vibrate", the phone will be silent
    .
    It won't make any noise, but it is going to vibrate. This makes a little bit of noise. There's no sound, but we will hear the vibrations.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    The final option is "Silent"
    .
    That means it won't vibrate or make any sound at all. Choose the desired option by tapping on one of the three choices.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    It will then take us out of that menu screen, and the word under "Sound profile" will have changed to whatever profile was chosen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    If we press down on "Sound profile" again, those options will appear, and it will show that "Vibrate" is the option we have selected
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Now, we'll tap on "Normal" to choose that
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    The word "Normal" will appear under "Sound profile"
    .
    There is also another quick way to do this. Going into the Settings is the longer way to do it, but it can be done a lot quicker.

    Press the volume button on the right-hand side of the phone

    We can scroll through the different sound profiles by tapping in the same location
    .
    The icons will change as we do this. The phone icon represents normal. The image of the front of a cell phone with some wavy lines around it represents vibrate. The speaker with an "x" beside it represents silent.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Notice as we change the sound profiles by tapping through the different icons that the word under "Sound profile" changes as we change the different profiles
    .
    This is a very quick way of changing this setting and changing the sound profile. However, both ways work just as well.
