    Default Broken Silent Switch
    Hi. Just hoping someone could help me out a little.
    My silent switch is malfunctioning. It works perfectly in terms of turning the silent mode on/off but the switch has become loose and it switches between on/off at the slightest touch causing the phone to vibrate. When it's in my pocket it constantly vibrates and it's driving me mad.

    I've searched Cydia for a package to disable the vibration that happens when the switch is moved between positions but with no luck. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    Maybe changing out the internal toggle switch would fix it?

    came looking for this issue as well.......... if anyone could give advice on fixing it or mending it? i assume its a broken wire internally? is there something i can adjust inside? im not hesitant to open up my 3gs, but id like to know if its worth my time and effort to do so? im experiencing the same issue as mpsya, but my switch doesn't physically seem loose. its just as tight as it ever was, but in the silent position, it activates to the slightest touch
