    Question How to silence dial pad buttons while dialing a number

    Advertisement



    First, let me preface this by saying that I searched for my answer, but wasn't able to find anything. If I missed it, I am sorry for creating another needless post.

    So....

    How can I configure my Pearl so that when I press the number keys to dial a number, while using the "Normal" profile, it does so silently?

    I know I can change to the vibrate profile to do this, but I want to be able to do it with the normal profile.

    Thanks.

    Question Re: How to silence dial pad buttons while dialing a number

    have you tried the options then screen/keyboard then scroll down to key tones and turn them off?

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, key tones is off, but it still "beeps" each time I press a number to dial.

    Re: How to silence dial pad buttons while dialing a number

    I guess as a workaround, since I only seem to use the "normal" and "vibrate" profiles, I can edit the "Quiet" profile volume, and use that profile instead of the "normal" one. That way I can hear my ringtone, but not "beep" when I dial numbers.

    the easy way I got around it was make sure 'all' numbers were in address book and you can select them with no noise at all.

    Re: How to silence dial pad buttons while dialing a number

    peter is right...there is no way to disable the key tones when you dial...just like there isn't a way to disable to shutter sound on the camera...and yes taking a picture while making a call is a work-around but still you hear the shutter in the ear piece...HTH

    When using the "quiet" profile, the dial key tones ARE disabled.

    Sorry: No.

    As I wrote in a previous Post: You will have the Key-Pad Tones also in Vibrate, Quite and when you switch the tones to off.

    Perhaps it has to do with model# or carrier, but on my 8130 with Verizon, my keypad tones ARE silent in quiet and vibrate profiles.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I was able to do it on 4.3 OS. That is another thing to look forward to the official release

    Could anyone who uses an 8130 from Verizon this? If this could be confirmed, well, then I'm sorry.

    Re: How to silence dial pad buttons while dialing a number

    Well I put my 8310 on quiet profile and you still hear the beeps because it actually comes through the speaker on the back of the phone, I dont recall my 8800 doing that (someone correct me if I'm wrong) I have wanted to silence the beeps since the day I got my crimson bb, but I'm glad someone started this thread, I'm surprised this is so and you cant get around it any kind of way. I have been places where I needed to make a 'secret' call and no can do because with silence around it is very apparent someone is dialing...
