I can't seem to actually get it to be truly silent

Hi Patti,

In a recent update that was pushed to Samsung phones (lollipop mostly), they took out the option to be completely silent, it will now always vibrate or make actual sound

Ahh that sucks is there an app that I can download and use in its place? I can't use the alarm on it as I have to turn it off to be completely silent as will wake me up, weird they did that.

Are you saying that you want the alarm to go off but nothing else? If so set up and choose priority notifications in the settings menu, that way only important calls from specified people can get through and your alarm will still go off.
