Default How to stop the beep when I enter and leave cellular coverage in Froyo?

Be-be-beep
be-be-beep

It beeps all the time and is nearly driving me sane.

How do I turn off the beep which signals entering or leaving cellular coverage? My house is a marginal reception area for my carrier (no problem, I just give folks my Google Voice number anyway which rings both landline and mobile) so, sitting in the den, my phone beeps at me every minute.

How do I stifle that function only? Cant find where in Notifications (Froyo, Android 2.2)

Many thanks for all on-topic replies.

Silencing the phone will of course turn off the beep, but that's hardly an optimal solution.

I share your pain. In my case, something changed in the last month and I've gone from one bar (occasionally two) to none. Sometimes signal strength changes just slightly and I hear the beep for no signal and the beep for signal restored as essentially one long be-be-be-beep-be-be-beep.

I'm not sure specifically disabling the Beep when you come in and leave cell coverage is possible under Froyo on this phone. I haven't found it.

You might try downloading Quick Settings from the market, and turning off Mobile data.

The Samsung Intercept is Sprint's long awaited upgrade to the Samsung Moment. It sports a 3.2 inch screen and a 3.2 megapixel camera sans flash. It's not going to be the powerhouse keyboard-enabled device on Sprint's network, that's... Read More
