Default Help - Unlock Sound in ICE/Nexus

Hi All, been coming here a long time, but first post. Hoping you fine folks can help me out a bit. I've searched a ton on the web, and this board and cannot find the answer.

My wife's Nexus has just started playing a chimy sound on unlock. She does not remember turning this on, and my Nexus does not play it. We've both gone through settings/sound/unlock/etc. several times, however we can't find this setting. I'm probably dumb, so I apologize if this has been directly answered, or is a simple fix i'm not seeing.

Thanks in advance!

Well glad to see you posting. I know if you go to settings, sound and scroll to the bottom the is a check box that says "sound unlock " unchecked that and it should make no sounds when unlocking. Hope that's helpful

I've had two Nexus' (Nexi?). My first one played the 'click' when the closing animation played, my new one plays it 1-2 seconds after the animation. It's strangely annoying - almost like when you watch a movie and see that their lips and sounds don't match up. I've done a factory reset (for other reasons) and it didn't help at all.

Any one else notice this?

Thank you for the welcome, and for the response. apologies for taking so long to return to the board, had some login issues.

Regardless, the setting is not in the area you describe in our phones. I go to sounds, and see only "Screen Lock Sound" which is the clicking noise, when locking the screen. My wife's phone plays a chime noise when unlocking only. Quite annoying. Anyone?

That was my second though, no new apps... she told me today that the sound does override the music apps such as Pandora when she unlocks. I'm about to have her reset to factory...

Default Same for me

My wife's phone also makes that sound, but mine does not. It's driving me crazy trying to figure it out.

I can't believe that worked!! I don't get it at all, we do not have a paypass card. And the sound played when away from my phone. My phone has NFC enabled, but no sound. This makes no sense. But thank you x2!

Your comment made me think further. Yes, NFC is turned on for both of our phones. But, my wife stashes a credit card inside her silicone case -- and yes -- it has a chip. That's what is doing it.
Thanks.

Transfat, THANK YOU!!!

I had torn my hair out for 6 weeks trying to figure out why that freakin sound was coming out of the phone. I did a factory reset, then rooted, then put on gummynex, removed all my apps. STILL THERE. couldn't figure it out. was about to return it to verizon.
All my searches on all the big boards, came up dry.
And today, your simple fix, did it. I have the sinjimoru case on the back of the phone, that holds my amex, and dlicense, and THAT was setting off the NFC.

MAN YOU ARE AWESOME
I joined this forum JUST TO SAY thanks.

You rock.

Default thanks!

Two big thumbs up.
I have been searching the web all day for this answer.
I too have a paypass card near the NFC antenna. This did not cause this sound when I was on Stock ICS or Vicious JB 4.1.
But I just moved to CM 10.1 and I got the sound. I tried ParanoidAndroid and got it too. I wonder if its kernel related.

Anyway, thanks!!!!
