    Does anyone know how to switch the sounds off at startup? It's really annoying.

    You can't unless you root your phone as far as I'm aware.

    Try turning the volume off before you switch it off. It worked with the Desire although I havent tried it with the S3

    I guess the real question is, "Why are you turning off your device in the first place?" Hmm ;)

    Silent Boot works great on the Verizon SIII. It does not turn off the shutdown beep but does silence the boot up sounds.

    Settings > Sound > Volume > System ( move bar all the way to the left ) then tap OK.

    Edit: this is stock & I'm on Verizon.

    Rooted users can simply delete system/media/audio/ui/poweron.ogg with root explorer or estrongs in root mode

    Does this only turn off the startup / shutdown sounds? I don't want to turn off something else I'm not aware of.

    1. Does it mess with startup to not have the file there? If so...
    2. maybe I could find a silent file to replace poweron.ogg?

    Digging into an older thread. Anyone have the answer to Kayst's question? I am interested in doing this and wonder if it effects any other sounds than the startup/shutdown process.

    It would only stop the startup/shutdown sounds. If rooted just rename the poweron.ogg and shutdown.ogg, change the ogg to bak, this way if you want them back you still have them.

    I turned it almost all of the way down, but not off to see if any other sounds were turned down before I completely turned it off.... It seems to effect the google now sound interaction also, which makes me think it may be effecting others too...

    I am not really interested in rooting. I can live without the Google now sounds, but will update this thread on any other sounds I notice that are effected.
