How to Get Your Phone Off Silent Mode

Cell phones, in today's society, are something that almost everyone carries. They are small and compact, easily slipping into a coat or pants pocket. This is especially handy when you need to make a call while you are out and about. It can be a problem when you are somewhere that it is not acceptable to have a phone, such as a business meeting or the movie theater. Due to this reason, you can turn the volume on the phone to silent or even just to vibrate. Getting your phone off of the silent function is moderately easy.
