Keypad tones

a pet hate is the "ding dong" of key pad tones, I have drilled into the keypad/display option, turned tones OFF, however when I go to dial a phone number they annoyinglt beep at me.

 

Please HELP to turn theses OFF !!!

 

This only one of a zillion things that I need to sort, but it will take time to accept this isnt a phone.

Re: Keypad tones

I have to agree with this. It's not that I hate the tones, but it drives my husband crazy. I can't text, set up my calendar or even dial a number if he is anywhere in the house. I've looked around for how to turn the tones off, but I haven't had any luck. My husband and I both thank whoever can solve this for us.

While you have gone about it the correct way, to the best of my knowledge you cannot turn off the keypad tones while dialing a number.  Turning off the "key tones" turns off all the other tones for the alphabet, but not the numbers. 

Hope this info helps.
