Ringtones, Ring/Silent switch, and vibrate

can also purchase ringtones from songs in iTunes. Use the Ring/Silent switch to turn the ringer on
or off, and Sound settings to set the vibrate options. By default, iPhone vibrates whether it’s in ring
mode or silent mode.
Set the default ringtone: Go to Settings > Sounds > Ringtone.
Turn the ringer on or off: Flip the switch on the side of iPhone. See “Ring/Silent switch” on
Clock alarms still sound even if you set the Ring/Silent switch to silent.

mode and silent mode.
