Here’s the problem: You want to set an alarm, but only have it vibrate instead of vibrate+ring. Sounds easy, right? Either I’ve overlooked it, or there isn’t a quick and easy way to create a silent ring tone on an iDevice.
Here’s the solution: Download this file. Unzip it to wherever you unzip things, then add it to your Tones library in iTunes. Go in to your device/sync settings in iTunes and make sure Tones are set to sync. Once you sync, you’ll see a new tone named [in my case] “Silent” as an option when creating your alarm.
Note: The download is in zip format containing one m4r file. You have my personal guarantee the file is safe to download and use. Since we’re best friends, I know that guarantee means a LOT. 🙂
