    My 650 sits on my nightstand charging each night. Since I'm a medical doctor "on call", I need to have the phone ON and nearby. My wife complains that she wakes to the "double beep" each morning when I grab the treo, pull it from the charging stand, and go on my way when she is still asleep. I've found that if I turn it to vibrate only mode--the phone won't "double beep" when I remove it from the charger--but that is a bit awkward. Anyone have a different way to silence those "double beeps" when plugging into and out of the charger temporarily or permanently?

    I am going to assume that this is not a joke to see how many people you can get to bite. Simply move the slider on the top of the phone to the mute position; this mutes all sounds including charger related double beeps. If it is a joke you got me, I bit.

    I think he wants to still have phone sounds on. I take it he doesn't want to wake the wife unless it's the hospital or an alarm. I'm still trying to figure out how to turn the charge beep off. Turning off system sounds doesn't do it.

    jgm has the right answer. Don't change the system sounds in the Prefs or any other way. Simply slide the physical mute switch to "off" while inserting or removing the Treo 650 from the charger. When the insertion/removal process is over, slide the switch back to the "on" position.

    It becomes a habit after a while.

    Yep, thats exactly what I do and probably the best and easiest solution.

    I think Techsounds v5 can replace this sound with something else (like a 1k silent sound) as well as a bunch of others.

    Koolsounds by Toysoft doesn't have sound options for this yet.

    Or ringer switch to mute is the free option

    LOL!!

    Who would joke about something as serious as his wife waking up with 2 little beeps from a phone.....

    I would concider investing in insulated earmuffs for the wife....or slide the mute switch over, awkwardly or not.......

    Yeah, I think Techsounds may be the way to go. Sliding the mute switch every time, especially with a Zcover, is a poor option.
