Ringer mode change listener Broadcast receiver?

AudioManager am = (AudioManager)getSystemService(Context.AUDIO_SERVICE);

switch (am.getRingerMode()) {
    case AudioManager.RINGER_MODE_SILENT:
        Log.i("MyApp","Silent mode");

    case AudioManager.RINGER_MODE_VIBRATE:
        Log.i("MyApp","Vibrate mode");

    case AudioManager.RINGER_MODE_NORMAL:
        Log.i("MyApp","Normal mode");

From the code above I can get the ringer mode. What I would liek to do is listen the ringer mode changes and call a function.

What I have been told is that I can register the AudioManager. RINGER_MODE_CHANGED_ACTION and listen the change intent in broadcastreceiver onReceive method. It sounds clear. But I am new to android and really dont know how to write it. Is there any one can just write a piece of code and show how exactly it works instead of saying use this or that 🙂 Thank you

    Use the following code inside the onCreate() method of your Activity or Service that you want to process the broadcast:

          BroadcastReceiver receiver=new BroadcastReceiver(){
              public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
          IntentFilter filter=new IntentFilter(

    Another solution is to add a receiver with an action in Manifest:

    <receiver android:name=".receivers.RingerModeStateChangeReceiver" >
            <action android:name="android.media.RINGER_MODE_CHANGED" />

    and your class RingerModeStateChangeReceiver should extend BroadcastReceiver.
