While it is entirely true that they are less obtrusive, some people may still find the banner notifications to be somewhat intrusive because they still cover up part of the interface you are working in until they go away.

    The iPhone and the iPad both have a switch on the side of the device by the volume buttons that is capable of being used as a mute switch.

As this can be a pain, jailbreaking comes into focus to fix the problem.
