    dont think you can :(
    you might be able to...if your media volume was set to 0 before you turn the phone off

    If your volume is down when you shut the phone down then it shouldn't go off.

    "Quietly Brilliant" is somewhat ironic when your eardrums are bleeding.

    Dear HTC -
    I might want to start my phone in a metting without alerting everyone to the fact -
    a silent startup option would be really handy

    I have heard that you can root the phone and get around this but that seems a little drastic

    Paul O'Brian (Modaco) removes the bootsound from his custom Roms.

    It is not particularly drastic rooting your phone, I would recommend it to anybody.

    HTC tone? Nothing plays on my T-mobile phone when the HTC screen shows, unlike my Hero did.

    As nobody has published a method of rooting the HTC Desire yet I would be interested how you go about rooting it using a drastic method or otherwise?

    Well I DOooo apologise for not clarifying my comment but there has been a few phones before the Desire on which you could access root.

    I.E. it wasn't "drastic" when I rooted my G1 or when I rooted my Hero.

    Hi!

    Until we have got root access, if we don't want to low volume manually, there's a free app at market, named "Silent Boot" that automatically lows level of sound at shutdown and then restores it after boot. It is designed for HTC Desire. I have got it and it works perfect.

    Regards, folgui.

    LOL... so true... sigh, another app taking up precious RAM (Silentboot) because of this niggly problem...

    Footnote: works with Power downs, not soft reset (the power+vol-down+optical key option)...

    Is there not a way to use one of the 'explorers' to remove the sound ?
    It's infuriating !

    Download silentboot, or just make sure your phone is set to silent when you turn it off.

    O2 put a branded splash screen on, which is silent too.

    Since moving to the official Froyo 2.2 update, my boot volume has more than halved. Acceptable now with no faffing about.

    Use Android "Tasker" Tasker for Android set a profile to put phone in SILENT mode on power off. set another to silent off on power up. Should work on ALL phones. tested on HTC DESIRE.
