    But you don't have to. You CAN edit one of the existing profiles to be absolutely silent for everything but text messages. It's really simple. Go back to editing a profile.

    Name: whatever you want
    Ring Type: Silent
    Ring Volume: Off
    Reminder Type: Silent
    Reminder Volume: Off
    Notification Type: Play Sound
    Notification Volume: however quietly you can set the mosquito tone so you can hear it but the fewest other people can.
    System Volume: Off

    In your sound settings, make sure your SMS tone is set to mosquito and voila. You won't be told about anything but texts and emails and no one but your classmates will know. If you want to get rid of the notification for emails and ONLY hear about texts, you will have to go into the registry, but that's a fairly simple hack.

    But I'll repeat the warning that lots of adults can hear the mosquito tone. I'm 27 and that particular frequency is so piercing to me it makes my heart race. My brother - 34 - has the same reaction. I experimented on a few people of various ages, and nearly everyone below 40 could hear it at least somewhat. One friend, when she came over, asked if my fridge always made that noise. So keep an eye on your teachers. If they start looking at the light fixtures every time you get a text, you might be in trouble.

    Sure your teacher won't hear, but if I was your classmate and I kept hearing your high-pitched sounds during class, I'd punch you in the face and steal your lunch money.

    There's that too. If the bullies in your class start looking at the lights, you might be in REAL trouble. :tounge:

    Yes, I am a teacher and the darn phones drive me nuts. Our school adopted a 3 strikes and you lose your phone for the year rule. Went into effect last year.

    A couple of years ago I bought a thing that looks like a ink pen but it has a light on the end. The light lights up if a phone is in use within about 50 feet. Works great in my class.

    The stupid cricket/mosquito ring tone is lame. It really drives me nuts.

    When I was in high school my history teacher would take any ringing phones from students and answer them in Finnish.
