    Hi,

    the Pre has this "feature" that plays a sound when a person I'm trying to call is busy. So I put my phone to my ear, wait for the dialing tone and *DINGDING*myearexplodes* there comes this discreet sound telling me the line is engaged.

    Is there a way to get rid of this sound? Except disabling sound completely.

    Any news so far? The sound really ... me off!

    Not sure if this will fix your issue but try the patch Disable Various Phone Sounds.

    Are you sure it's not a feature specific to your carrier, and not to the phone itself?

    I'm on Verizon, and if the line is busy, it's just a plain old busy tone.

    If they have call waiting, it lets you know that they're on the line by inserting a beep at the end of each ring, i.e., riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiingbeep..... riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiingbeep.... etc.

    Nothing loud, nothing annoying, nothing ear shattering.

    No it's not carrier specific. It's a Pre thing.

    I never heard it before. So I don't think it's a Pre thing.

    Who is your carrier and the one you are dialing?

    I dial a number that is engaged. I hear (in Germany, o2) *beeep* short pause *beeep* short pause *beeep* and silence. Followed by that I get these annoying loud chimes followed by the message that offers me to either redial or press ok.

    By the way, the "Disable various sounds patch" did the thing! Thanks!

    Glad I could help with that! I am unsure of the sound you were referring to as well. But all of those sounds were annoying to me hence the patch.
