Move Android Phone To Silent Mode or Ringing Mode By Sending SMS To It


A very common problem with all the mobile phone users across the world is, leaving your phone at a place and then not able to locate it just because it was put on silent mode. In certain emergency situations, this very habit brings a lot of trouble eventually forcing you to miss an important call or other important things. If you have an Android device, then we have just found the perfect solution to the same problem.

An app named as Remote Ringer is available on Android Market and with its help you can change your android phone’s ringing mode from silent to normal, in situations when you cannot find your phone by ringing it as it could be set silent mode. When starting the app for the first time, it sends an SMS to register your device so that the app could start functioning.


Now coming to main interface you have a few instructions on the main screen and settings at the bottom. Sharing on facebook is also one of the features of the app.


As per the instructions you have to add an authorized contact number and a secret password. The settings section has the enable option, the Secret section where you have to enter the passcode and the Select Mobile number to select a contact number through which only the app could work.


Tap on the Secret option and add the secret passcode. Similarly when you tap on Select Mobile Number, it opens your contacts so that you can scroll through and select the contact number.


Once you have selected the number it will show the same under the Select Mobile Number section. Now after adding the number and passcode you must enable the app and press the back button.


Coming back to the mainscreen, it should look like the image below with the authorized number being displayed which means that everything is set and you are ready to use this app.


Finally you must exit the app by pressing the back button and now it is time to tell you how this app works. Once you are all set, to test the app, put your phone on silent mode and keep it next to you. Now with the authorized number that you had selected, send an SMS to your phone with the set PASSCODE as the message and hopefully your device’s ringing mode will be changed to silent as soon as it receives the SMS.

App Requirements: Compatible with Android devices. Requires android 1.5 and up.
