    Hi everyone,

    I just got the Moment and I like it so far, but for the love of God I can't figure out how to turn the sound off when my phone goes out of service. Where can I find this!?

    I live in an area with poor cell service (I knew this and I hate talking on my phone) and just want the noise shut off. I don't need a stupid beep to tell me that it's outta service. It's driving me nuts. Please help!!

    Thanks in advance.

    I second this request. I have poor coverage at work, in a basement. This notification goes off all the time...getting kind of annoying.

    Any and all help appreciated. TIA

    Someone should answer soon. If not I will later when I get the phone in my hands!!!

    According to the user's guide the only sound settings are under

    Menu>Settings>sound and displays>notifcation ringtone.

    Possibly there is something under roaming at

    Menu>Settings>Wireless Controls> Mobile Netowrks

    An turn off call guard.

    That May Work!

    Does anyone know if this "fix" resolved this issue?

    The call guard setting did not work. I already turned this off and I still get the notification when I "lose" signal and reconnect.

    The notifications ringtone is different than the loss of signal and reconnect ringtone. So disabling this will not change/disable this specific notification.

    I haven't found anyplace to turn this off yet...

    This problem will force me to return my Moment. Is there a fix?

    There is no fix that I have found, and agree on this annoyance. CL14 does not address this either. I would've hoped someone could have id'd the sound file (name) which then could be replaced with a silent file, but no luck yet.

    This is not a Moment thing. All Android phones have the same issue. It's really amusing to be in a Subway car and hear the tone comming from several Android devices, almost like they're talking to each other. I'm guessing that the people at Google who design the OS never go out of cell signal range. Other than the lame update proceedure for this phone, this is the most annoying bug (feature?).

    i have my phone on vibrate all the time, so i haven't heard this in/out of service sound; nor do i know what it sounds like...

    i'm looking under (rooted phone) system > media > audio and see the following folders

    UI
    Alarms
    Notifications
    Ringtones

    and don't see anything that's obviously the notification... i'm sure if we can find the sound file, we can replace it with a no sound file...

    To solve the problem of it notifying you multiple times within the day instead of turning your phone off and on all the time just put it into airplane mode which takes about 2 second vs. taking minutes to restore the again when you turn it back on.

    Also with it going in and out of service it is looking for service the whole tome which uses battery life fast.

    Is there any listing in the UI folder? Seems that would have the logical files? Wondering if I recreate that folder and name a silent file to the exact name of the tones, if it would work?

    Hi, anyone found an answer to this? I don't mind the sound so much as the notification will turn on my screen and then it stays on and drains the battery!!
