    Unable to disable keypad tones on Samsung U900 Soul

    Unbelievable! I already hate my new U900 Soul with a passion, but today I have finally had it. After trying for a full 2 hours to disable the ridiculous noise it makes when dialling or texting I called Samsung directly to ask for help. I was put on hold for a while whilst he had a fiddle with his phone. He came back to tell me that there was no way to do it other than to have the phone on silent!! When I sounded astounded he went on to say something about legalities, ie, when recording it has to beep every 5 secs and other things, although he couldn't explain how this applied to keypad tones. He said lots of other manufacturers are moving towards making it impossible to disable the function. Surely this is rubbish? I still don't believe it's not possible so here's hoping one of you lot can help me??
    Failing that, any offers for a 1 month old U900 Soul?
    Cheers.
    Derek.

    I'm sure keytones are turned off on gf phone. i'll check when i get home tonight

    the volume up/down key located on the side should take away the noises if you take it all the way down to 0 in normal mode

    But doesn't that silence everything? I don't want to have to keep messing about each time I want to txt in silence or be able to hear a call if I can hep it.

    That's what tech guy said, I was hoping he was just fobbing me off!! (Edit: I thought you meant usual in tht you can't turn them off)

    no it shouldnt silent everything just keypad tones, give it a try it works with the previous 3 samsungs I've had including tocco now

    That's done it! Brilliant!! I just knew he was fobbing me off!

    Thanks for all your help everyone! :thumbsup:

    Rep to all.

    Can't believe you were so 'hating' that excellent phone for such a small thing that is explained in the manual
    Frustration I can understand as being a bloke myself, I can understand the reluctance to read manuals
    This said, the electronic one is searchable on key words - such as 'tones'
    Sad!
    If anyone has a pink one, I'm after one for my daughter

    i can't get rid of the annoying little vibration every time a press a key/ok, even in silent mode. how do i do this??

    thanks
