Go into sound settings and volume then turn down system sounds and notification sounds until you can't hear it.

To get rid of annoying system sounds, go to /system/media/audio/ui and rename these:
Charger_Connection.ogg <---Disables the initial noise when charger is plugged in
TW_Battery_caution.ogg <---Disables the loud beep when the battery fully charged
TW_Low_Battery.ogg <---Disables the loud beep when the battery is low

I'll need to change those ASAP. I charge my phone at night as well, and it annoys the hell out of me when it makes noises.

How do you rename it? I was not able to do that with Astro.

You need to be rooted and mount the directory R/W first. Change it back to R/O when done.

If you have it, activate blocking mode. I charge my phone on my bedstand and blocking mode disables all LED lights, alert sounds, and the ringer between 12:30 and 6:30.

I have read that Verizon removed blocking mode for some reason (probably because they're evil).

Well I don't Charge over night, I hate leaving the charger on beyone it's full charge. I have a charger on my desk at home, and one on my desk at work, one in my truck, and one in the kitchen. So by bed time I'm usually at full charge. I have never left any of my phones sit on the charger beyond full charge. My 2cents

No it is one loud alert that wakes my wife and I up. I need the sound on because I am a physician on call. But I sure do not like getting awoken every night. Surely there must be a simpler way to fix this!!

There are at least 2 things you could do without turning off your phone ringtone or rooting your phone.

1) Manually turn off "notification" and "system" volume at night. You can leave "ringtone" volume up.

2) Activate Blocking Mode and disable notifications, alarms, and timers at night automatically. You can leave incoming call enabled.

I used to use this on my SGS2:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.psencik.simple.silencer&feature=sear ch_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImN6LnBzZW5jaWsuc2ltc GxlLnNpbGVuY2VyIl0.

I just use blocking mode now.

BTW, leaving the phone on the charger after it's full has zero effect on the battery. It has circuitry that stops charging after it hits 100%.

Good grief this is annoying. I switched from my old 1a charger at my bed to the one that came with the note2 tonight. I was greeted several times by this anoying beep every so often. Whoever thought this was a good idea...so good that there isn't an acceptable way to disable...is insane. I wish I had their home phone number so I can call them several times a night to wake them up like their "feature" does me.

My N2 also does not make noise when it is fully charged. I don't use the stock charger, I use one of my old Blackberry chargers. I wonder if maybe it has something to do with the charger that my phone doesn't make noise when fully charged?

Is this carrier specific? Mine doesn't make this noise and I'm on Sprint.

OP, do you have some kind of battery app installed on your phone?

Depends on how the rom is put together. To turn these off without rooting you must mute notifactions all of them. To fix just the sounds in quedtion, root. Only option I know of. And I like my access. So I dont bother looking for others.

"But mr sails man, why cant I open the hood to MY new car" says buyer
"Because you might mess somthing up, [and theres stuff in there we do not want you to see because if you did you would take it out, I mean we need to know everything you do right, and limit your max speed [sprint]] so we lock you out of your property for your protection." Says salesman.

Use blocking mode on vzw. The app exists but no button to turn it on. There is a thread on it sime where. Download a free app that makes a shortcut to any file. Touch the icon and it launches vzw blocking mode. Mine is set to stop notifications between 11 and 6am. No root!

This is driving me crazy. Where do I find the blocking mode on Verizon?

I contacted samsung tech support and they said there was no way to stop the beep.

How to: Enable “Blocking Mode” on Verizon’s Galaxy Note 2 – Droid Life

So I tried this last night. I appreciate the suggestion. It did not work. Still got the annoying beep in the middle of the night when the battery is full.

does anyone have any other ideas short of rooting? (I have never done that).

You can try Profile Scheduler. This is the free app version. You can put everything on silent and have a whitelist of allowed calls. Set up different profiles for diffent times of the day, etc. Maybe this might help?

So I tried profile scheduler and sound profile. Neither worked. The problem is the sound for "battery full" is under the notification file. When I disable notification sounds at night, I lose my text message sound.

I need the phone and text message to work at night when I am on call. Does anyone have any suggestions other than rooting?
Thanks for trying to help.

Did you enable the whitelist? As far as I am aware, anyone on the whitelist will not be silenced.

Even the paid version only allows 50 contacts on the whitelist. That will not work.

Thanks for trying.
Any other ideas? Driving me crazy!

The only other solution I can think of is Tasker. But it's a little complicated and you need to put in the time to learn it. There is a 7 day trial but you need to get it from the developer's site.

So I called VZ tech support. They conference called Samsung with me. They said there was nothing they could do to fix it. VERY disappointing response from both VZ and Samsung.

It is interesting the ATT and Sprint version do not do this. The Samsung rep said it was google's fault. That does not make sense since other phones do not have this flaw.

It would seem to be a fairly quick fix for Samsung to move the offending sound to "system" rather than "notification". Or simply make it an option be notified when the battery is full.

So I am left with getting woken every night, missing calls, or getting a new phone. Love the phone, hate beeps in the middle of the night.

When the Note2 came out, I was so close to switching to Big red. After finding out everything they changed/took away I'm glad I didn't.

Why not just get another battery and charge it seperate. Do NOT charge phone at night. It's what I'll be doing. Plus I've found the battery's last longer if you fully use and then recharge them.

To answer the OP at Post 32. I don't have this 'fully charged' alert on my un-rooted, international, SIM free phone but out of curiosity I tried X-plor on the phone. Lo and behold, I could enter the Phone / (Root) / system / media / audio /ui folder and see dozens of .ogg files. I do get a beep when I connect the charger and there was a file called Charger_Connection.ogg file. I have not tried renaming any of these ogg files but it might be worth while an experiment if someone is sufficiently motivated to do so.

Incidentally, with reference to a previous thread regarding camera sounds I note there are also a few Camera_click ogg files in the same folder.

What is X plor, and how does it work? I am not a geek; can I damage my phone with this?

It is interesting the ATT and Sprint version do not do this. The Samsung rep said it was google's fault. That does not make sense since other phones do not have this flaw.

It would seem to be a fairly quick fix for Samsung to move the offending sound to "system" rather than "notification". Or simply make it an option be notified when the battery is full.

So I am left with getting woken every night, missing calls, or getting a new phone. Love the phone, hate beeps in the middle of the night.
I just want to say I am on Sprint and I do hear that faint (buuunnp) when my phone is fully charged. I don't know if it's because I use another charger instead of the one that came with it or what. I timed it and if I don't unplug it does it every hour. I unplug and go back to sleep. It doesn't bother me as much as it bothers you and I am surprised not more people hear it.

I have just tried but failed to rename it too, so it appears that the previous advice regarding rooting pertains. Sorry it was a bum steer from me but I was too tired to even attempt renaming a system file last night.

This is a fudge and probably a unsatisfactory one at that, but you could try extending the period of recharge for those times you are on call. That is by using a charger having a low current rating instead of the super fast 2A one supplied with the phone eg a 500mA one. Alternatively a PC USB port and/or a longer USB cable might do the trick. As I said a fudge but if you could jiggle things so it beeps when you are due to be awake it might not matter so much.

It totally defeats me that anyone could actually go to the trouble of deliberately adding such a feature without making it optional as well.

It would drive me bonkers - I wish I could be as laid back as you seem to be Almath

Last night I used the charger that came with the phone and I didn't hear the noise. I'm gonna try for a few more days to see if this might be the solution.
