Can't turn off keypad tones when dialing!

There's a loud tone when I dial numbers.  I've changed the "key tone" setting to off in the screen/keyboard settings but the tone is still there.  I've had the phone for a day and mostly love it but a few quirks are driving me a bit batty.

Mine does the same thing once in awhile! You're right. The quirks DO drive one nuts. Try fixing the setting again, and then do a battery pull reset.

Hiya.  I've tried taking the battery out and putting it back in.  Is that what you mean by a battery pull?  Do I have to leave it out for a certain length of time?

If you are referring to the tone when using the speed dial keys, that can only be silenced by selecting the quiet or vibrate profile. If that's not what you where referring to then see if your carrier has an OS update for your phone. I have no problem with disabling the individual key tones.

Ah.  I do need an update but, not wanting excessive connectivity, got the phone without a data package, which is why I was hoping to be able to use PocketMac--to update the phone's OS.  I'm off to Costco, where I bought it, to see if they can help.  Perhaps I'll have to do this through my PC at the office.

Re: Can't turn off keypad tones when dialing!

as we have to live with it, i found a workaround, when you are in the phone screen, click on the menu and choose Call From Contacts -> Select Second line from the contacts where it say [Use Once] -> Type your require numbers and press call or trackball or entre

 

hope any one find it easy
