If you don't want it to make a sound, there is a preference setting in the "Text Assist" app. Just switch the "Alert" setting from System Sound to Mute.

There is a setting in the "Text Assist" app that alows you to mute the system sound on this alert.

I believe that the autocorrect sound is /usr/palm/sounds/notification.wav

'find' is very handy for poking around:

cd /
find . -name "*.wav"
find . -name "*.mp*"

perhaps redirect to a file for browsing on your PC...

In case anyone else finds this, after a bit of digging I also found some PCM files in:

Quote:
/usr/share/systemsounds
You'll need something like Audacity to import the files, as they are raw data and can't be played in much else.

I should also mention that renaming a file in this folder, "sysmgr_alert.pcm" fixed an annoying bug where the phone would play two notification sounds (one after the other) when a message was received.

Sorry to revive this after so long but I am dealing with the same issue, and I cannot find this file. There is NO USR folder that I can find in my Pre 3...

How are you looking for it? You won't see it on your PC, as only /media/internal is mounted in USB mode. You have to shell in to the device either using Novaterm/ssh or via a terminal app like wTerm on-device.

Well, crap. I'll look into that. Never gone that far with my device yet, closest I've used is the tools for installing Preware.
