    I HATE the "bong" noise...you know the noise...whenever you tap in a wrong area or your email doesn't connect to the server....you hear a loud, annoying "bong." Please someone tell me how to get rid of this noise, delete it or lower the volume.
    Also, why is the startup/power-up sound effect so loud? The power-down sound effect is also equally loud and annoying. Any help changing this one would be much appreciated also.

    Thanks.

    A picture is worth a thousand words....

    (Pay close attention to the ringer on/off switch...it also mutes any and all sounds.)

    You could also RTFM or goto that special place in preferences that allows you to turn off all sounds for your Treo.

    I've said too much already.

    Huh?

    Do you mean that in order to avoid the power-up sound/power-down sound/and annoying "bong" sound, I have to turn the ringer off?

    You could use ProfileCare to turn on the ringer and turn off other sounds.

    that's what i do...but I don't turn it on/off very much at all. it's a low-tech solution, but effective to say the least.

    Is there a way to change the power-up and power-down sound effect to a more pleasing one? Also, how about making the same change for the "bong" sound effect?

    But if you add more water, it still makes noise. Maybe he should use papers instead?

    Or set the General sound setting to a very low level.

    I wish my phone made bong noises!! Maybe I'll get Lightwav to play a bong mp3 for me whenever I receive an sms or voicemail.

    Gotta love google... here's a page where you can get a "bong" wav file & many other sound files.

    On the Sprint version that "bong" sound is the service tone. Sound Preferences > Phone > Tones > Service Tone.
    --Inspector Gadget

    Palm Pre on Sprint

    Palm V--> Palm IIIc--> Visor Prism--> Visor Phone--> Treo 270--> Treo 600--> Treo 650-->

    Prefs -> Sound -> General -> System Volume -> Off

    will turn off the beeps, bongs, keyclicks etc and still allow for ringer etc.

    Is the OP's problem this simple? Or am I not understanding his/her question?
